TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Tom Brady's quest for a seventh Super Bowl ring continues, thanks to a young defense that's regained its swagger when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers needed it most.

Packers rolling into rematch with Bucs

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) All that stands between Green Bay and its first Super Bowl berth in a decade is the one team that managed to shut down the Packers' high-powered offense this season.

Green Bay is the NFL's highest-scoring team but had its lowest point total of the season in a 38-10 loss at Tampa Bay back on Oct. 18. The Packers (14-3) have a chance to avenge that defeat Sunday when they host the Buccaneers (13-5) in the NFC championship game.

Bills out to avenge Week 6 loss to KC

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Quarterback Josh Allen spent the regular season leading the Bills to a franchise-record matching 13 wins and their first AFC East title in 25 years. Buffalo's defense has done its part the past two weeks in getting the team to its first conference championship game appearance since 1994.

Both units will need to be much sharper than in a 26-17 loss to Kansas City in Week 6 if the second-seeded Bills (15-3) stand a chance of upending the top-seeded and defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs (15-2) in the AFC championship game on Sunday.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Signs point to new era dawning for the New Orleans Saints, even if an opportunity remains to keep together much of the young core that has powered the club to four straight NFC South titles.

The Saints must be ready for Drew Brees to retire after he started at quarterback for 15 years. They also must decide how to approach extension talks with prominent young players such as cornerback Marshon Lattimore, sack leader Trey Hendrickson and right tackle Ryan Ramczyk, among others.
