Championship Sunday is here in the NFL and the four remaining teams will be whittled to the two Super Bowl teams this afternoon. Both games feature fascinating storylines and a host of former Buffalo Bills players and coaches.
Jacksonville Jaguars at New England Patriots
CBS, 3:05 p.m. Eastern
Ugh. What a terrible match-up for Bills fans.
Former Bills coach Doug Marrone leads Jacksonville’s coaching staff which features former Bills coaches Nathaniel Hackett (offensive coordinator), Tyrone Wheatley (running backs), Tony Sparano, Jr. (assistant OL), and Perry Fewell (secondary) and defensive lineman Marcell Dareus and linebacker Paul Posluszny are former Bills on the roster.
The Patriots have a glut of former Bills players with cornerback Stephon Gilmore, receiver Chris Hogan, running back Mike Gillislee, defensive lineman Alan Branch, and defensive end Eric Lee plus WNY native Rob Gronkowski.
Buffalo lost to the Patriots twice in 2018. The Bills fell to the Jaguars in the Wild Card round two weeks ago.
Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles
FOX, 6:40 p.m. Eastern
The Vikings won last week on a last-second miracle and face the Carson Wentz-less Eagles in a battle of formerly benched starting quarterbacks Case Keenum (Minnesota) and Nick Foles (Philadelphia).
Linebacker Nigel Bradham, cornerback Ronald Darby, and safety Corey Graham play for the Eagles now under former Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz. Also on the Eagles coaching staff is Frank Reich, former Bills quarterback. The Vikings have defensive coordinator George Edwards and defensive backs coach Jerry Gray on their staff, both former Bills defensive coordinators.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want the Jaguars or Patriots to win the Super Bowl after what has transpired recently. Go NFC!
