Buccaneers-Packers: How to watch NFC Championship game, time, weather

Tom Brady is headed to an NFL record 10th Super Bowl — and his first with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Buccaneers defeated Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, 31-26, in the NFC Championship game on Sunday to clinch a spot in Super Bowl 2021.

Tampa Bay will face either the Buffalo Bills or Kansas City Chiefs, who are set to play in the AFC Championship game at 6:40 p.m. ET.

The NFC title game was not without controversy.

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur was criticized by many after opting for a 26-yard field goal while down eight points with just over two minutes left, as Green Bay needed a touchdown regardless. A touchdown and two-point conversion would have tied the game.

The field goal cut the lead to five points. Tampa Bay ended up running out the clock to preserve the win.

The Buccaneers will become the first team to play at home in a Super Bowl.

Brady, 43, is 6-3 in Super Bowl games, all of which came with the New England Patriots.

He signed a two-year, fully guaranteed $50 million contract with the Buccaneers during the offseason.
