The two teams advancing to the AFC Championship Game boast Georgia alums, meaning the Bulldogs will extend their streak of at least one player on a Super Bowl roster to 20 straight seasons.

    No. 1 seed Kansas City, which got 70 all-purpose yards from receiver/return specialist Mecole Hardman on Sunday against No. 6 Cleveland, moved on to the AFC Championship Game for the third straight year. Kansas City also has defensive back Deandre Baker on its practice squad injured reserve list. The Chiefs will entertain No. 2 Buffalo, which features receiver Isaiah McKenzie and quarterback Jake Fromm. The Bills, who are headed to their first AFC title game since 1993, dispatched No. 5 Baltimore on Saturday.

    Top-seeded Green Bay punched its ticket to the NFC Championship Game by topping No. 6 Los Angeles on Saturday. The Packers’ practice squad includes tight Isaac Nauta. Green Bay will host No. 5 Tampa Bay, which does not have any Bulldogs on the roster. The Buccaneers topped the No. 2 Saints on Sunday.
