Like the AFC Championship Game, its NFC counterpart will be a rematch of a thriller from the regular season.

The New Orleans Saints defeated the Los Angeles Rams, 45-35, in November. The Saints surged to a 35-14 lead. The Rams rallied to tie it at 35 before New Orleans scored the game's final 10 points.

Now, they will meet Jan. 20 in the Superdome. The oddsmakers like the Saints. They have opened as a 3.5-point favorite.

By the way, the Rams were 8-0 in the regular season matchup. The Saints came in 6-1. The Rams were a 1.5-point road favorite on Nov. 4.

In the AFC Championship, the Kansas City Chiefs are three-point favorites over the New England Patriots.
