The NFC Championship game is played for the George S. Halas Trophy and a trip to the Super Bowl.
Here is a look at the 10 most exciting NFC title games ever. Keep in mind, the NFC Championship game started in 1970, the year of the merger with the AFL that formed the modern NFL. Games played prior to 1970 are not eligible for this list.
The closest contests that provided the most excitement and suspense for fans made this list. A blowout win by any team will not make this list. Last-second wins, overtimes, memorable plays and moments are all taken into consideration when determining this list.
Keep in mind games are listed by the season they are connected to, not the actual year they were played in. For example, the 1977 NFC Championship game was actually played in January 1978.
Feel free to comment on any game that made the cut or mention a game that was left off that you feel belongs here. As always, indicate why you feel the way you do and what game you would remove from the list if you are seeking to add one.
Most of all, enjoy this trip down memory lane.
