AFC and NFC Championship game times, TV schedule, predictions for Patriots-Broncos, Cardinals-Panthers

This should be a fun day. We have the 4 best teams facing off for a chance to go to the Super Bowl. The Broncos have a really good defense. The only question is can Peyton Manning put together one more game to lead his team to the Super Bowl? I think the answer to that question is no. Patriots win 21-17.

The second game also has a lot of intrigue. I hate Cam Newton, so I cannot pick the Panthers. (That's not the smart way to pick games, in case you didn't already know.) It has been fun to watch Carson Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald comeback this year and Bruce Arians is a genius. Cardinals win 27-24.
