NFL fixtures 2022: How to watch battle for Super Bowl, UK TV channel and kick-off times

The race for a spot in this year’s showcase event is hotting up.

After 272 regular season games and a flurry of play-off activity, just four teams remain in the battle to play at Super Bowl LVI.

Cincinnati Bengals, Kansas City Chiefs, San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams are all just one game away from booking a place in the biggest clash of the American sporting calendar.

Both the AFC and NFC Championship games will be held this weekend, with the winners destined for a showdown in Los Angeles next month.

Here’s everything you need to know about the two games...

AFC and NFC Championship Game teams

The four remaining teams battling out for a spot in this year’s Super Bowl are Cincinnati Bengals, Kansas City Chiefs, San Francisco 49ers, and LA Rams.

The Bengals saw off Tennessee Titans in a tightly-contested 19-16 victory last Saturday to set up a clash with the Chiefs, who themselves edged out Buffalo Bills on Sunday in an enthralling 42-36 overtime win.

For their part, the 49ers proved too much for Green Bay Packers in a 13-10 success, thanks in large part to a late blocked punt touchdown, while the Rams survived a spirited second-half display from Tampa Bay Buccaneers to hold on for a 30-27 victory.

Both fixtures will be played on Sunday 30 January.

The Bengals and the Chiefs will get underway at 8pm GMT, while the 49ers and the Rams go head to head at 11.30pm GMT.
