Greetings, Raider fans! Today is the big day where we will find out who will play in Super Bowl 52 in Minnesota. Join us for this game and the Vikings vs. Eagles game later on today.

Today’s AFC Championship Game is between the old guard and the new. The reigning, defending, undisputed heavyweight champions of the world, the New England Patriots will host the young and dangerous Jacksonville Jaguars who look to shock the world en route to their first ever Super Bowl. The Patriots are hoping to reach their 10th.

It would seem to be an uphill battle for the Jaguars on the road, because the Patriots pretty much never lose at home, but the Jaguars did just knock off the Steelers in Pittsburgh last week so you never know.

These Patriots are the Empire and the Jaguars are the Rebel Alliance. Tom Coughlin served in the 2007 and 2011 Super Bowls, and he reports for duty again today. Help me, Obi-Wan Coughlin. You’re our only hope.

Today’s game can be seen at noon Pacific on CBS, and sadly it will be Tony Romo’s last game of the season on commentary. Will the network bring him back for the Masters?
