The conference championships of the NFL playoffs have arrived, and we're previewing Sunday's pair of games: Titans-Chiefs in the AFC, and Packers-49ers in the NFC. Our NFL Nation reporters bring us the keys to every game, a bold prediction for each matchup and final score predictions.

Game-1, AFC Championship:
What to watch for: Titans running back Derrick Henry isn't the only storyline in this game, but it sure seems like it after he ran for 188 yards against the Chiefs in Week 10. Doing much better this time is a big thing for the Chiefs, who are 9-0 when allowing the opponent to rush for 110 yards or fewer but 4-4 when allowing more.

Game-2, NFC Championship:
While Niners coach Kyle Shanahan has expressed his team's need to forget the 49ers' 37-8 drubbing of the Packers in November, Packers coach Matt LaFleur has talked about needing to revisit and learn from it. The Niners are healthier than they were in that first meeting, but a regular-season drubbing guarantees nothing in the playoffs.
