We have built up a section of our site that links to a post on each team in the NFL and the local media outlets that cover that team. It’s a one-stop-shop for fans to get information on their favorite team through some of the people and organizations who cover them every day.
For the NFL Conference Championships we will re-post the entries for each team, as a way for you to get ready for the game, again, through the work of the local media in each market.
