NFL Championship Games schedule: Panthers and Cardinals, Patriots and Broncos, oh my

New, comments

The games are here today, and we've got what you need to know as you gear up for them.

Today's the day of the Championship Games. The Falcons are not involved, obviously, but I imagine you'll care enough to watch.

As previously noted, this is yet another playoff matchup for Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, and on the AFC side you're seeing the same two teams who represented the 2013 and 2014 Super Bowl berths for the conference. On the other side, you've got the Cardinals and Panthers, who were both last in the big game in the aughts.

Use this as your open thread for both games. Enjoy, and go Broncos and Cardinals!
