Has this week felt like a month waiting for the Green Bay Packers to host the NFC Championship Game?

Well, you’re not alone. But here we are. The day has finally arrived for Aaron Rodgers to get to play in a home NFC title game, with Green Bay hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers later today.

Planning to watch the game or listen on the radio? Below is everything you need to know for this afternoon’s NFC Championship Game.

TV channel: FOX
Radio: WTMJ Milwaukee/WIXX Green Bay
Live stream: fuboTV

Packers fans have suffered through some heartbreaking season-enders in the NFC title game. Last year’s game wasn’t all that close, but watching such an encouraging season come crashing down with the San Francisco 49ers attempting only eight passes was tough to watch.

Many wondered whether Aaron Rodgers’ best opportunity to return to the Super Bowl had come and gone against a 49ers team set to dominate the NFC for years to come.

Fast forward 371 days and it’s a much different picture. The 49ers — hit hard by injuries — didn’t make the playoffs. The Packers are right back where they finished in the NFC Championship Game, but this time they are at home with a chance to put in a much stronger performance.

Going one step beyond last season’s effort will be no easy task, however, with Tom Brady and the Bucs on the way to Lambeau Field.

But this Packers team has been on fire in recent weeks on both sides of the ball. This is the opportunity for Rodgers to earn a second ring.

It’s Rodgers. It’s Brady. It’s Lambeau Field and it’s the NFC Championship Game. It doesn’t get much better than this.

Go Pack Go!
