The 2014 NFL playoff TV and live online schedule resumes in just a little over 48 hours when the much anticipated AFC and NFC Championships are schedule to take place this Sunday afternoon. Championship games in the NFL are always intense and exciting, but this year’s match-ups have the potential to be some of the best ever.
According to a Gather.com report on Jan. 16, the first game on Championship Sunday will feature the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds in the AFC when the New England Patriots take on the Denver Broncos from the Mile High city.
Led by two of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game, New England's Tom Brady and Denver's Peyton Manning will once again try to lead their team to a trip to the Super Bowl. When these two teams met during the regular season the Patriots rallied from 24 points down to win in overtime.
The NFC Championship will feature the 49ers taking on the Seahawks from the always loud CenturyLink Field in Seattle. This will be the third time these two teams will face each other this season, with the home team winning the two previous match-ups.
Unlike the past five season, this year's NFL playoffs brought no surprises.
The final four teams standing on Championship Sunday are actually the top four favorites to win the Super Bowl, and have been since last August.
Putting that into perspective makes picking the winners to these key games a very difficult thing to do. If the underdogs win both games it really wouldn't surprise many people.
