NFC Championship Game - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (202 words)
The NFC Championship Game is an American football game played every year to determine the champion of the National Football Conference (NFC) of the National Football League (NFL).
The NFC was formed with most of the teams that played in the NFL before the merger.
At the end of each football season, a series of playoff games involving the top six teams in the NFC are conducted, consisting of the four division champions and two wild card teams.
[ Sports Central ] Sports >> NFL >> Legacy of the 1990 NFC Championship Game (2521 words)
The 1990 NFC Championship did not have the legendary game conditions that encompassed the Ice Bowl ('67 NFL Championship) and it did not have the surreal offensive fireworks as the "Epic in Miami" ('81 AFC Divisional) certainly did, and it was not the final game of the season.
The game was 6-6 at halftime -- remember, this is not told in the customary manner, but Taylor's third quarter score was nearly eradicated by a hellish 46-yard FG by Bahr, and suddenly it was 13-9 -- and the 49ers would not score another point.
For the non-partisans, the game represented a clash between the undisputed rulers of all things NFC -- the final chapter in a rivalry born in 1981, that reemerged in the late 1980s -- that climaxed in a championship game for the ages.
