The Right Time: Bo & Mina talk Conference Championships

Bomani is joined by Mina Kimes to discuss the Conference Championships coming this weekend in the NFL Playoffs, including the comical "underdog" story of the Patriots (6:25). Bo makes his final plea for the Rams to spare us a Super Bowl in Atlanta with the Saints representing the NFC (26:29) and they close with a nuanced conversation about problematic names that you just don't hear anymore (52:03).

Bill and Field Yates of ESPN preview the AFC Championship matchup in the NFL Postseason of Patriots-Chiefs. Will the temperature be an issue for the quality of play?

Chiefs activate Duvernay-Tardiff to bolster OL

Chiefs guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, who started the first five games before breaking his leg and tearing ligaments in his ankle, will be activated for Sunday's game vs. the Pats.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

The Chiefs activated guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif off the injured reserve list and waived safety Ron Parker. Duvernay-Tardif could take his place as the starter at right guard for Sunday's AFC championship game that he lost when he broke his leg and tore ankle ligaments in an October game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The release of Parker could be a sign that Eric Berry will be available to play against the Patriots. Otherwise, the Chiefs have just three safeties in Daniel Sorensen, Eric Murray and Jordan Lucas.b
