The NFL Conference Championship games feature the old guard in the NFC and the new guard in the AFC. It’s one of many storylines in a weekend of two great games with great NFL betting opportunities.

In the NFC, you have Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers (age 37) vs. Tampa Bay’s Tom Brady (age 43). The AFC has two potential matchups. It’ll either be Buffalo’s Josh Allen (age 24) vs. Patrick Mahomes (age 25) if Mahomes can play after going through concussion protocol. If he can’t go, it’ll be Chad Henne (age 35) behind center.

Whether we see three QBs ages 35 or over starting in the NFL Conference Championship games or just two, one thing is for certain (barring injury): One starting quarterback in this year’s Super Bowl will be old.

And if an NFC team wins the Super Bowl this year, the winning quarterback will be one of the oldest signal-callers to capture the Lombardi Trophy.

Since 1967, only eight quarterbacks over the age of 35 have won a Super Bowl.
