The Saints, who overcame the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles for a 20-14 divisional victory on Sunday, took home the league trophy themselves the last time they made the conference championship in the 2009 season playoffs.
Kansas City and L.A. also played what was arguably the most entertaining game of this era when they met on Monday night in mid-November. Tom Brady threw for 340 yards.
Foles, who stepped in for injured Carson Wentz to lead Philadelphia to the Super Bowl previous year, was never going to give up and he had the Eagles at the New Orleans 27 in the fourth quarter before an interception ended their dreams. New Orleans hit a go-ahead field goal and then put the game away on a 72-yard touchdown from Brees to Michael Thomas on third down with less than four minutes to go.
New England hosted Kansas City way back on October 14, and Brady passed for 340 yards and a touchdown in a 43-40 victory that was the Chiefs' first loss of the season. Brady's Patriots have already humiliated the Falcons on the game's biggest stage once, and winning it again on their home field would leave a bitter taste, even if it happens to come against New Orleans.
"They are a great team".

Tom Brady will face the Chiefs on Sunday, in his eighth AFC championship game in eight seasons. The Saints beat the Rams 45-35 at the Superdome and the Patriots took care of the Chiefs 43-40 at Gillette Stadium. Marshon Lattimore had two interceptions, including one on the Eagles' final drive.
"Our sense of focus and the sense of urgency have gone up tremendously", guard Rodger Saffold said. New England destroyed the visitors 41-28, a score that makes the game sound a lot closer than it actually was.
The Patriots scored on their first four possessions on their way to a 35-7 halftime lead. "But if you went back and looked at the records in the Dome prior to '06, 3-5, 3-5, 4-4, 3-5, 3-5 with the playoff win".
The Chargers, meanwhile, haven't reached the AFC title game since the 2007 season.
