Sony Michel and Isaiah Wynn celebrate

There are eight NFL Bulldogs remaining with the NFC and AFC
Championships on deck for next weekend. Since there is at least one
Bulldog on each of the four rosters, Georgia will extend its SEC-leading
streak of a player in the Super Bowl to 18 straight years.
The AFC Championship Game will feature New England at Kansas
City. The Patriots have tailback Sony Michel and center David Andrews
on the active roster and offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn on injured reserve,
while the Chiefs boast outside linebacker Justin Houston and receiver
Chris Conley.
The Rams will visit New Orleans in the NFC Championship Game.
Los Angeles is led by halfback Todd Gurley along with inside linebacker
and special teams standout Ramik Wilson, and the Saints have tight end
Benjamin Watson.
Super Bowl LII will be held Sunday, Feb. 3, in Atlanta.
