After an exciting divisional round, the NFL playoff field is down to the Buccaneers (No. 5 in NFC), Bills (No. 2 in AFC), Chiefs (No. 1 in AFC) and Packers (No. 1 in NFC). Will the top seeds in each conference continue to dominate? Or will the underdogs make some noise Sunday?

NFC championship game: Buccaneers vs. Packers
Key storyline: Can Tampa Bay’s defense put pressure on Aaron Rodgers?
In the Week 6 matchup between the Buccaneers and Packers, Rodgers threw for just 160 yards and two interceptions with no touchdowns. He was sacked four times as pass protection frequently fell apart. This is a much different Green Bay team than the one that battled Tampa Bay in October, of course, but the Bucs’ formula for success should be the same: Don’t let Rodgers get comfortable.
AFC championship game: Bills vs. Chiefs
Key storyline: What version of Patrick Mahomes will we see?
Mahomes will play against Buffalo after clearing the concussion protocol, and he has downplayed the severity of his toe injury. Now the big question is whether the Kansas City quarterback will look like his superstar self or a mere mortal. The Bills’ offense is capable of lighting up the scoreboard, so the Chiefs will need peak Mahomes (or close to it) in order to keep their Super Bowl hopes alive.
