NFL: Baltimore Ravens see off Houston Texans to make Conference Championships

The NFL play-offs continue this weekend, with just four teams left on the road to Super Bowl 58.

Over three weeks, 12 games are played to decide the two teams that will play in the NFL's championship game.

Now just two of those games remain, known as the Conference Championships, and both will be played on Sunday, 28 January.

You'll be able to follow live text commentary of every game on the BBC Sport website and app, plus live commentary on selected Sunday matches on Radio 5 Sports Extra.

There will be post-match video highlights after each round before the big game in Las Vegas on Sunday, 11 February.

NFL: Christian McCaffrey stars as 49ers edge Packers

The Baltimore Ravens are the top seed in the AFC Conference, had the NFL's best record in the regular season (13-4) and quarterback Lamar Jackson, 27, looks set to win the MVP award for a second time.

But despite Baltimore's commanding wins over the San Francisco 49ers and Miami Dolphins in December, the 49ers have been favourites to win Super Bowl 58 since late November because of their star-studded roster, which secured the NFC's top seed.

The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Buffalo Bills and now have the opportunity to cement their dynasty with a third NFL title in five years.

Where is the Super Bowl taking place?

The Raiders moved 550 miles from Oakland, California, to Las Vegas, Nevada, in 2020

Long seen as the entertainment capital of the world, Las Vegas has been transformed into a sporting mecca in recent years.

Although 'Sin City' is famed for staging world-title boxing fights, several professional sports teams are now based along the Strip, including the NFL's Raiders franchise, which relocated to the 65,000-capacity Allegiant Stadium in 2020.

Now the Super Bowl will be staged in Vegas for the first time at the $1.9bn (£1.5bn) arena, the second-most expensive in the world behind Los Angeles' SoFi Stadium, which hosted Super Bowl 56.

Who is performing the half-time show?

Usher appeared as a special guest of the Black Eyed Peas during the 2011 half-time show but now the American R&B star is the headline act.

The 45-year-old completed a 100-show residency in Vegas in December and has been such a hit on the Strip that he was awarded the key to the city in October.

What time will the Super Bowl start?

The scheduled kick-off time for UK fans on Sunday, 11 February, is 23:30, with the first half lasting about 90 minutes.

The half-time show will start at about 01:00 and the match is expected to finish at about 03:00.

Why is the Super Bowl trophy named after Vince Lombardi?

The winning team will get to lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy. It is named after NFL coach Vince Lombardi, who led the Green Bay Packers to victories in the first two Super Bowls.
