AFC Championship

New England Patriots (12-4) vs. Denver Broncos (12-4), Jan. 24 3:05 PM ET

Manning and Brady will face off in the playoffs for an NFL record 5th time and it could very well be their last. So far whichever quarterback has had home field advantage has been able to escape with a victory. The Patriots have a few injuries on their roster and will have to face the Bronco’s #1 ranked defense.

NFC Championship

Arizona Cardinals (13-3) vs Carolina Panthers (15-1), Jan. 24 6:40 PM ET

This is the first time in NFL history that two Heisman winning quarterbacks will be squaring off against each other for a chance to go to the Super Bowl. Both Newton and Palmer will be put to the test as both teams field top 5 defenses.
