Where to watch the 2024 NFL Pro Bowl Games live stream
Wide shot of the NFL Pro Bowl Week sign.

For the second straight year, the NFL will present the Pro Bowl Games, a reimagined two-day event featuring the league's top players participating in multiple skills challenges. In years past, the Pro Bowl was virtually unwatchable. The players did not want to give maximum effort or tackle each other for fear of injury. In 2023, the NFL removed the tackle football game in favor of the Pro Bowl Games, which returns in 2024 from Orlando, Florida.

The first day of the competition – The Skills Showdown – aired on Thursday and featured precision passing and dodgeball. Sunday's Pro Bowl Games competition will feature a flag football competition with games of move the chains, gridiron gauntlet, and tug of war.

How to watch the free Chiefs vs. Ravens live stream (legally)
Mark Andrews of the Ravens puts his hands up on the football field.

It's Conference Championship Sunday in the 2024 NFL Playoffs. The first game will feature Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs traveling to M&T Bank Stadium to face Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship.

The Chiefs are playing in their sixth straight AFC Championship Game. The only team with more consecutive AFC title game appearances is the New England Patriots, with eight from 2011 to 2018. If Mahomes wins this game and then the Super Bowl, he will have a legitimate claim to be the second-greatest quarterback in NFL history. Meanwhile, Baltimore is making their first AFC Championship appearance since Jackson became the starter in 2018.

Sunday marks one of the best football days of the year. Two conference champions will be crowned in the 2024 NFL Playoffs. The NFC Championship features Brock Purdy and the San Francisco 49ers hosting Jared Goff and the Detroit Lions. Kickoff starts at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT on January 28. The game will air on Fox and feature the network's top broadcast team – Kevin Burkhardt (play-by-play), Greg Olsen (color), Erin Andrews (sideline), and Tom Rinaldi (sideline).

The Lions have a chance to make history. If they defeat the 49ers, Detroit will appear in their first Super Bowl in franchise history. The Lions won multiple NFL Championship Games in the 1950s before the creation of the Super Bowl. On the other sidelines, it's business as usual for the 49ers as they attempt to win the NFC Championship for the second time in five seasons.
