Conference Championship games featuring Chiefs, Bills, Packers and Buccaneers made possible by a salary cap

Man, with Kansas City, Buffalo, Green Bay and Tampa—four television markets that aren’t New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and/or Philadelphia— involved in this Sunday’s conference title games, good luck getting viewers to tune in to see which two teams the NFL will send to Super Bowl LV, right?

LOL, just kidding. It’s the NFL, and three of the biggest names in the history of the league—Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes—will headline these matchups. Therefore, those ratings will be just fine.

That’s the beauty of a league with a salary cap and a network television package that is split evenly among all 32 NFL teams.
