#5 Kansas City Chiefs at #2 New England Patriots - Saturday, Jan. 16, 4:35pm, CBS

This one features Missouri's only NFL team (sadface emoji) and the Cheatriots. What an anti-Rams playoff game.

There's intrigue though. The Chiefs started off 1-5 only to win their final 10 games of the season and then proceed to absolutely roll the Houston Texans in the wild card, 30-0.

The Patriots, on the other hand, are the Patriots. Screw those guys.

#5 Green Bay Packers at #2 Arizona Cardinals - Saturday, Jan. 16, 8:15pm, NBC

THE PACKERS ARE JUST HORRIBLE THIS SEASON. WHAT A BAD FOOTBALL TEAM. AARON RODGERS SHOULD JUST RETIRE. NFL major media is the absolute worst.

The Cardinals are hoping to make good on the best regular season in franchise history by extending their playoff run with QB Carson Palmer. And there might not be an NFL player who deserves a Super Bowl ring more than WR Larry Fitzgerald.

Should be a fun one.
