The NFC and AFC Championships are upon the NFL Sunday, with four teams eyeing a trip to the Super Bowl. First, the defending champion Seattle Seahawks host the Green Bay Packers, and next the New England Patriots take on the visiting Indianapolis Colts.
Seattle and New England are both favored by roughly a touchdown, but with four of the league’s best quarterbacks playing, there’s a solid chance both of these games come down to the wire.
Let’s take a quick look at each game, and when and where to watch them.
Packers at Seahawks
Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers and Seattle’s Russell Wilson will duel as the league’s top offense stares down the No.1 ranked defense. The Packers led the NFL with 30.4 points per game, and the Seahawks let up a mere 15.9 points.
Rodgers has been battling a calf injury for the last month, though he didn’t show too many signs of injury in last week’s 26-21 victory over Dallas. And Seattle’s top defensive backs like safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor said earlier this week that Rodgers is always dangerous, hurt or not.

Colts at Patriots
The NFL’s top passer, Andrew Luck, looks for his first victory in his fourth try against Tom Brady and the Patriots. New England’s handily beaten Indy by an average of 26 points in Luck’s three career starts, including a 42-20 drubbing in the regular season and in the AFC Divisional round last year, 43-22.
However, Luck’s already toppled Peyton Manning this postseason, and sending Brady packing could make him the top quarterback in the conference.
