We have reached the last real football Sunday of the year. Yes, we have the Super Bowl in two weeks, but the game is only part of the day. On this Sunday we get two championship games in front of real football crowds. The day begins in Seattle.

NFC Championship Game

Game Information:

Teams: (1) Seattle Seahawks versus (2) Green Bay Packers

Location: CenturyLink Field, Seattle, Washington

Game time: 3:05 p.m. ET on Sunday, January 18

Channel: FOX

The Seahawks are one win away from advancing to a second straight Super Bowl. I kept trying to figure out a way to pick Green Bay here, but I just cannot. Seattle has that great homefield advantage. Aaron Rodgers isn't healthy. If the shoe was on the other foot, and Seattle was going into Lambeau Field with a banged up Russell Wilson, I would like Green Bay. Today I take Seattle.

AFC Championship Game Information:

Teams: (1) New England Patriots versus (4) Indianapolis Colts

Location: Gillete Stadium, Foxborough, Massachusetts

Game time: 6:40 p.m. ET on Sunday, January 18

Channel: CBS

In the nightcap, we have a game that will likely be historic for one reason or another. The Brady/Belichick combo might be on its way to a sixth Super Bowl. If not, we might remember today as the torch being passed to the next generation of great NFL quarterbacks. Andrew Luck knocked out Peyton Manning and the Broncos. Now can he take out Brady and advance to his first Super Bowl? I'll go with my heart and pick the Colts.
