The 2014 NFL playoff bracket is down to the final four, and this weekend's action could be some of the best football fans have seen all season.
If you were looking for an underdog or surprise team this weekend to pull off an upset, I'm sorry to report that every favorite was victorious - thus setting up the conference championship games most people knew were coming since last November!
According to a Sportsline report on Jan. 12, the AFC Championship will see the New England Patriots take on the Denver Broncos from Mile High, while the NFC features the Seattle Seahawks facing the San Francisco 49ers for the third time this season.
Denver and San Francisco both got revenge yesterday on the teams that had beat them earlier this season. Denver came away with a 24-17 win, but the game wasn't as close as the score indicated. Through 3 quarters, the Chargers had 0 points and were under 150 total yards of offense.
The 49ers started sluggish vs Carolna, but a strong second half put S.F. back in the NFC title game for the third straight season.
The Broncos and Seahawks were the top two favorites to win the 2014 Super Bowl back in August, and with one more win each, they could be squaring off in New York on Feb. 2.
Here is a look at the Championship schedule and Super Bowl odds.
