2023 NFL Playoffs Schedule, Network, Results: Dates, Time, Stream, TV for 49ers vs. Eagles, Bengals vs. Chiefs

The NFL season is officially down to the final four teams, and we’ll see some very familiar faces on Sunday.

For the second year in a row, the San Francisco 49ers, Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals are in the conference title round. The lone newcomer this year is the Philadelphia Eagles, who are playing in the NFC Championship for the first time since 2017.

The Eagles will host a 49ers team that beat the Cowboys on Sunday, extending Dallas’ 27-year drought without a conference title game appearance.

This Eagles-49ers game will give us a meeting of two of the most successful NFC teams of the 21st century. Including this year, the Eagles have reached seven NFC title games, the most by any NFC team since 2000. The 49ers are tied for second with six. ​​​​​​​Although they have both appeared in tile NFC game multiple times over the past two decades, they have never played each other.

In the AFC, we will get a rare rematch. The Bengals-Chiefs game will be just the third time in the last 35 years that the AFC Championship has become a rematch. The last time this happened was in 2011-12 (Ravens-Patriots), and before that it hadn’t happened since 1986-87 (Browns-Broncos).

The AFC Championship is also a rematch of a Week 13 game the Bengals won 27-24. Cincinnati has played the Chiefs three times since January 1, 2022, and the Bengals have won all three games.

With that in mind, here’s a look at everything postseason schedule and gridiron.
