The Packers and Buccaneers are meeting in the NFC Championship. In the ‘90s, they were in the same division (with both playing in the NFC Central). Since the move to eight divisions in 2002, what team has done this the most times (played in a conference championship against a team that formerly was in its own division)?
Indianapolis. The Colts for years were in the AFC East. They played in three AFC Championship games against the Patriots and one against the Jets. On this front, the NFC West in the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s included the Rams, 49ers, Saints and Falcons. Los Angeles two years ago won an NFC Championship game at New Orleans. San Francisco beat Atlanta in the 2012 NFC title game.
