NFL: Bills-Chiefs AFC Championship Game would be played in Atlanta

Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta would host a potential AFC Championship Game between the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, January 29, at 6:30 p.m. ET, the NFL announced today.

NFL clubs approved a resolution last week after the cancellation of the Week 17 Buffalo-Cincinnati game due to the injury to Bills safety Damar Hamlin, which included playing the AFC Championship Game at a neutral site if the participating teams played an unequal number of games and both could have been the number one seed and hosted the game had all AFC clubs played a full 17-game regular season.

According to the league, if Buffalo and Kansas City advance to the AFC title game, it would be played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. As part of standard NFL contingency planning, Atlanta was designated a possible backup host site for postseason games prior to the start of the 2022 season and is almost equidistant from both potential participating teams’ cities.

All other potential AFC Championship Game matchups would take place at the home stadium of the higher seed.

Bills-Bengals canceled, AFC title game could be played at neutral site

The Buffalo Bills-Cincinnati Bengals game will not be resumed and has been canceled, the league announced on Thursday.

The game was postponed after Bills safety Damar Hamlin suffered cardiac arrest on Monday night. Ultimately, according to the Bills, Hamlin’s heartbeat was restored on the field. He was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. According to the Bills, Hamlin remains in the ICU in critical condition and continues to show signs of improvement. 

According to the statement from the league, here are the key factors that went into the decision to cancel the game.

-Not playing the Buffalo-Cincinnati game to its conclusion will have no effect on which clubs qualify for the postseason. No club would qualify for the postseason and no club will be eliminated based on the outcome of this game.

-It would require postponing the start of the playoffs for one week, thereby affecting all 14 clubs that qualify for postseason play.

-Making the decision prior to Week 18 is consistent with our competitive principles and enables all clubs to know the playoff possibilities prior to playing the final weekend of regular season games.

Because cancelling the game between the Bills and Bengals creates potential competitive inequities in certain playoff scenarios, the NFL added the following provisions regarding the AFC title game:

The AFC Championship Game will be played at a neutral site if the participating teams played an unequal number of games and both could have been the number one seed and hosted the game had all AFC clubs played a full 17-game regular season. Those circumstances involve Buffalo or Cincinnati qualifying for the game as a road team and are listed below:

Scenario 1:

Buffalo and Kansas City both win or both tie – a Buffalo vs Kansas City championship game would be at a neutral site.

Scenario 2:

Buffalo and Kansas City both lose and Baltimore wins or ties – a Buffalo vs Kansas City championship game would be at a neutral site.

Scenario 3:

Buffalo and Kansas City both lose and Cincinnati wins – a Buffalo or Cincinnati vs Kansas City championship game would be at a neutral site.

Regarding the Ravens/Bengals this Sunday:

If Baltimore defeats Cincinnati in Week 18 it will have defeated Cincinnati, a divisional opponent, twice but will not be able to host a playoff game because Cincinnati will have a higher winning percentage for a 16-game schedule than Baltimore will for a 17-game schedule. 

If Baltimore defeats Cincinnati and if those two clubs are schedule to play a Wild Card game against one another, the site for that game would be determined by a coin toss. If Cincinnati wins the Week 18 game or if Baltimore and Cincinnati are not scheduled to play one another in the Wild Card round, the game sites would be determined by the regular scheduling procedures.

Eagles led the way with eight Pro Bowl selections

The Philadelphia Eagles, who have the best record in the NFL at 13-1, led all teams with eight Pro Bowl selections as the NFL announced on Wednesday night the AFC and NFC rosters for the 2023 Pro Bowl Games.

Thirty teams had at least one player selected to the 2023 Pro Bowl Games roster.

The players from each conference will compete in a series of exciting Pro Bowl Skills competitions throughout the week and the first-ever AFC vs. NFC Flag football games on Sunday, February 5, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

The 2023 Pro Bowl Games will begin with both new and fan-favorite Skills and continue on Sunday with Skills and Flag games

There will be a lot of youth in the quarterback rooms in this Pro Bowl. Four of the six quarterbacks selected to the initial roster – Buffalo’s Josh Allen, Cincinnati’s Joe Burrow, Philadelphia’s Jalen Hurts(first time), and Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes – are age 27 or younger.

Seattle quarterback Geno Smith, who is having the best season of his career, was chosen for his first Pro Bowl in his 10th career season

The Dallas Cowboys and Kansas City Chiefs each had seven players chosen. Three additional teams – the Baltimore Ravens(six), Minnesota Vikings(five) and San Francisco 49ers (six) – each placed at least five players on the Pro Bowl roster.

Twenty-five of the players selected to the Pro Bowl today are first-time All-Stars.

Roster selections are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 88 All-Star players.

2022 opponents for all 32 NFL teams

A complete list of home and away matchups for the 2022 regular season was issued Thursday by the NFL.

Each team will play 17 regular-season games (and three preseason games) as follows:

  • Home and away against its three division opponents (six games).

  • The four teams from another division within its conference on a rotating, three-year cycle (four games).

  • The four teams from a division in the other conference on a rotating, four-year cycle (four games).

  • Two intraconference opponents based on the prior year’s standings (two games). These games match a first-place team against the first-place teams in the two same-conference divisions the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place and fourth-place teams in a conference are matched in the same way each year.

  • One interconference opponent based on the prior year’s standings on a rotating four-year cycle (one game). These games match a first-place team from one division against a first-place team in an opposite-conference division that the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place and fourth-place teams in each division are matched in the same way each year.

    The home conference for this game will rotate each season, with the NFC teams hosting the game in 2022.

    The scheduling formula implemented in 2002 with realignment guarantees that all teams play each other on a regular, rotating basis.

    The 2022 schedule, with playing dates and times, will be announced in the spring.

The following are the 2022 scheduling rotation and team-by-team opponents.
