It’s the NFL Conference Championships, four teams left, two games on tap, so let’s just get right to it and take a look at the uniforms for today’s games.
In the NFC, the Green Bay Packers are hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where Tom Brady will look to lead the Bucs to a Super Bowl in their home stadium, and add yet another achievement to his miraculous, seemingly never-ending career. The Packers meanwhile hope to end their string of NFC Conference Championship losses having lost in their last three appearances including last season against San Francisco.
As the home team, the Packers are naturally going with their familiar green on gold, Green Bay has worn this combo ten times throughout the 2020 season and playoffs, they’re 8-2 when they wear it. One of those two losses, however, came against the Buccaneers, a 38-10 defeat in Tampa back in Week 6. Today, the Bucs will be wearing what they wore in that game, the white tops with pewter/silver pants. It’s a proven combo so far for the team as they’ve gone 4-0 while wearing it this year throughout the season and playoffs.
The winner of this game will serve as the home team at Super Bowl LV to be played two weeks from today at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium. If the Bucs win they’ll be the first team to ever play a Super Bowl in their home stadium.
Over in the AFC it’s a battle between two old AFL foes, the defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs taking on the Buffalo Bills who absolutely dominated the conference in the early 1990s but could never make it happen in the big game.
The host Chiefs are going with their usual home combo, red top over white pants. Worn nine times this year, Kansas City has won 7 and dropped 2 of those contests. Buffalo is wearing white with blue pants for the sixth time this year, the Bills are 3-2 so far in the combo (compare that to a 12-1 record when wearing anything else).
Earlier this week we took a look at some of the possible Super Bowl LV uniform matchups and conducted a poll (of which, the potential Packers-Chiefs Super Bowl I rematch basically blew the rest of the field away). Check that out, and vote for your favourite matchup yourself, right here.
