Open thread: Conference Championship Weekend

Coming up today/tonight:

Rams at Saints - 3:05 p.m. ET

This was the match-up many fans had been heading into the postseason, although neither team was that impressive in the divisional round with the Rams beating the Cowboys by eight and the Saints hanging on to beat the Eagles by six on a late interception.

The Rams running game was a huge factor against Dallas, even with Todd Gurley not at 100 percent. If they can get Gurley and a fresh CJ Anderson going against New Orleans, they'll have a chance.

Otherwise it could be a shootout between Drew Brees and Jared Goff, which might come down to how effectively the Saints can limit Aaron Donald from blowing up plays.

Patriots at Chiefs - 6:40 p.m. ET
