Kansas City advanced to the conference championship game for a second straight year with a 51-31 comeback victory over Houston on the weekend, and now rides a seven-game SU win streak into Sunday afternoon's matchup at Arrowhead Stadium. With victories by double-digit margins in each of its past four contests, Kansas City is now set as a +135 favourite on the Super Bowl odds, edging out San Francisco, which trails at +165.

The 49ers routed Green Bay 37-8 during the regular season, which carries some weight. The problem will lie in the Packers' defense trying to slow down the 49ers.

The Chiefs open up as even heavier favorites, giving 7.5 points to a Titans team that beat them 35-32 in November. The bye between the Wild Card and Divisional Round allowed San Francisco to rest and return some important cogs on defense, and that showed versus the Vikings.

Henry ran for 195 yards as the Titans, 10-point 'dogs, overpowered the Ravens in a 28-12 win.

The Titans are looking to become the third sixth-seeded team since the 2002 realignment to win a Super Bowl, and the first since Green Bay in the 2010 season.

Of course, the Chiefs will have something to say about that.

Said Mahomes of the Titans: "The biggest thing is they believe and they're going to fight until the end just like we are". You've seen them all season long as they have gone through adversity.

The Packers didn't put up much of a fight when they were blown out by the 49ers earlier this season. Tannehill passed for fewer than 100 yards in each game. However, nearly half of Jackson's 3,127 passing yards went to his tight ends (1,522 yards) - Mark Andrews (852), Hayden Hurst (349) and Nick Boyle (321).

Meanwhile, no one should really be all that surprised over what will be taking place in the NFC since the 49ers and Packers were both fortunate to earn the top two seeds in the playoff picture.

Green Bay has no choice but to play better offensively this time, with the "triplets" of Rodgers, wide receiver Davante Adams and running back Aaron Jones coming off an effective divisional playoff game against the Seahawks and working behind a solid line. All four of those victories came when the Packers had Brett Favre at quarterback.
