Conference Championship Weekend has come and gone, and now, we know the two teams that will be facing off in Super Bowl 57. However, are there any NFL games today, or do we need to wait until Feb. 12 for our next look at NFL action? Well, the answer might just surprise you.
NFL Games Today: Is There Monday Night Football Tonight?
No, there are no NFL games today. Monday Night Football came to an end back in the Wild Card round of the 2022 NFL playoffs. Although there is no football on tonight, we can still look back fondly at the weekend we just witnessed.
The first game of the weekend was between the San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles. Unfortunately, this one wasn’t much of a contest. The Eagles got up to a big lead in the first half and simply piled on in the second.
This year’s rookie sensation Brock Purdy was knocked out of the game with an elbow injury during the 49ers’ first drive, which made it difficult for San Francisco to compete. Josh Johnson, the team’s fourth-string QB, was also injured and had to leave the game.
The AFC Championship was a much closer affair. The Kansas City Chiefs welcomed the Cincinnati Bengals in a rematch of last year’s conference title game. This one came down to some extremely questionable refereeing and a last-second field goal that gave the Chiefs the 23-20 win.

The Chiefs’ defense, a unit that struggled for a good portion of the year, stepped up big when it mattered most. Joe Burrow was under constant duress for most of the game, and the Bengals’ offensive line injuries finally started to haunt them.
With the playoffs coming to an end, and no Monday Night Football tonight, when is the next time we get to see the NFL? Well, fret not, because the Pro Bowl is here to quell all our NFL needs
