AFC and NFC Conference Championship Games: Schedules for the last pit stop before the Super Bowl

We are nearly there.

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

With the end of the late game, we now know precisely who the four teams are who will be competing for a Super Bowl berth. On the AFC side, the teams are familiar, while on the NFC side, you have a couples of teams who aren't here all that often.

The AFC game offers you the traditional Manning and Brady intrigue, though this time Manning is a shell of his former self and will need his defense and ground game to carry him, while Brady figures to carry his team. The NFC side has the Cam Newton-led Panthers within one game of the Super Bowl for just the second time in that franchise's history, while the Cardinals are attempting to get back for the first time since their Super Bowl loss to the Steelers in 2008.

They should both be great games, and I'm personally hoping we'll see a Denver-Arizona Super Bowl. How about you?
