By the time this one ends, we will know all of the matchups for Championship Sunday in the National Football League, as the Pittsburgh Steelers and Kansas City Chiefs battle it out for the right to play in next Sunday night's AFC Championship Game.

This game was originally scheduled for noon Central time today, but weather conditions necessitated moving things back to give workers time to clear the roads and parking areas around Arrowhead Stadium. As you can see, the forecast is still calling for temperatures around the freezing mark with a 50/50 chance of precipitation during the game, so it looks like things at Arrowhead could get cold, wet, and sloppy.

The winner of this one will win the right to travel to Foxborough next weekend to take on the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game. New England easily dispatched the Houston Texans on Saturday night to advance to their sixth consecutive AFC title game.

Enjoy the action, ladies and gentlemen!
