SB Nation 2014 NFL Playoff Coverage

The Divisional Round of the 2014 NFL Playoffs is now over, and the Championship round next week is set. And they're probably the games most expected to happen.

NFC Championship Game:

The battle for the NFC will take place between two NFC West teams: the Seahawks and the 49ers. The 13-3 Seahawks were the better team in the regular season, but the 12-4 Niners weren't far behind. These two teams split their division series, each winning their home game. This time the game will be in Seattle again, which is where the Seahawks most recently defeated the New Orleans Saints, 23-15.

This game has the making for a good matchup. Not only are they division rivals, but both teams feature dynamic, young quarterbacks (Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick), power running backs (Marshawn Lynch and Frank Gore), strong defensive units, and energetic head coaches (Pete Carroll and Jim Harbaugh). The Seahawks haven't been to the NFC Championship game since 2005. The 49ers will appear in their third straight NFCCG.

Teams: (1) Seattle Seahawks (12-4) vs. (5) San Francisco 49ers (12-4)

Location: CenturyLink Field, Seattle, Washington

Game Time: 6:30 PM EST on Sunday, January 19th 2014

AFC Championship Game:

In the battle for the AFC, the Denver Broncos will face the New England Patriots. You might not have heard of the quarterbacks for these two teams before, but they're actually Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. These two have actually squared off a number of times before, and they're always a fun time. Especially in the playoffs.

The Broncos haven't been to the Championship Round since 2005 when they lost to the Steelers. Conversely, the last time the Patriots didn't advance to the Championship Round was in 2010.
