The divisional round of the 2022 NFL playoffs wasn’t quite as memorable as the Wild Card round last week, with blowout victories by the Philadelphia Eagles and Cincinnati Bengals. Now the field is narrowed to four teams and two excellent Conference Championship games.

Both games take place on Sunday, with the NFC Championship between the San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles at 3:00 PM ET. Then we’ve got the AFC Championship between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Kansas City Chiefs at 6:30 PM ET.

Before we get to the picks, let’s check in on our staff standings.
