The last stop before the big finale; we’re about to find out the best team in each conference. Majority consensus tells us that we’ve matchups between the top four teams in the League. Two of the NFL’s old guard of QBs face off again; it’s Brady-verses-Manning XV. The New England Patriots’ Tom Brady has now been to two thirds of the AFC Championship games that he has had available to him, and a win means similarly he’d have visited half of the Super Bowls (20:00 Sun – SkySports). Whereas the Denver Broncos’ Peyton Manning commands an offensive juggernaut that recently claimed the majority of the NFL’s passing and scoring records. The second of the two games pits two teams from the NFC West against each other, and with it two of the new school of QBs; Russell Wilson’s Seattle Seahawks host Colin Kaepernick’s San Francisco 49ers (23:30 Sun – Sky Sports). It’s not just an on-field rivalry field; Head Coaches Pete Carroll and John Harbaugh despise each other. Expect fireworks!
