With four teams left in the running for the Super Bowl, you don’t want to miss a second of the action between this week’s AFC and NFC games.

The last four teams in the playoff all battle for Super Bowl contention, as the we inch closer to the Super Bowl on February 7.

The Buffalo Bills, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Green Bay Packers, and Kansas City Chiefs all have their eyes set on February, but only two hopeful teams will leave this week with their heads up. The real question is how and when to watch the games without being interrupted by screaming children or literally anything that could inhibit your gameday.

AFC Championship Game

Firstly, the AFC Championship game between Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs and Josh Allen and his Bills will happen today, so clear your schedule. The Chiefs will have a home-field advantage for the game, which will begin at 6:40 p.m. ET, sharp. Do not be late!

To watch the showdown, CBS will be broadcasting the game.

In addition, CBS All Access will be streaming the championship game, in case your wife drags you to dinner with her parents. Like the name suggests, you can access the championship game on just about any device that uses wifi, including Amazon Fire TV or Kindle, Android TV, Android phones and tablets, Apple TV, iPhones and iPads, Portal TV, LG TV, Roku, Samsung TV, Vizio TV, Xfinity Flex, Xbox, PlayStation 4, and any PC and Mac web browsers.

The downside? You have to sign up and select a plan you want to purchase.

However, there is still hope for you and your wallet. If you haven’t already done so, the service offers a one-week free trial—the hero we don’t deserve.

You can also follow the game on the CBS Sports App.

The NFC Game

As for the NFC Championship, Tom Brady is hoping to prove skeptics wrong that he doesn’t need Belichick to win his seventh Super Bowl ring. First, the Buccaneers must defeat Aaron Rodgers and the cheese heads in Green Bay for their game in Wisconsin. I hope those Florida boys like the cold because the weather is currently pointing toward 29 degrees at game time.

The championship game will also be today, however kickoff is at 3:05 p.m. ET. Even more of a reason to clear your plans, a two-for-one Sunday.

Fox will broadcast this game, but you can stream it on fuboTV. Yes, there is a free trial for this service as well. It is accessible on these devices: Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku, Google Chromecast, Android TV, Android phones and tablets, iPhones, iPads, and any PC and Mac web browsers.

In addition, you can follow along with the CBS Sports App.
