Championship Weekend Preview

The final four teams are set and this Sunday will determine the two teams to play in Super Bowl XLIX.

“It’s fun to still be alive in the playoffs,” says Green Bay quarterback AARON RODGERS. “It’s exciting this time of year when you’re still playing.”

Championship Sunday begins with the NFC title game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks in a rematch of the Kickoff opener which Seattle won 36-16. The Seahawks defeated Carolina 31-17 last week while the Packers knocked off Dallas 26-21. The AFC Championship Game will feature the Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots who met in Week 11 with New England winning 42-20. The Patriots defeated Baltimore 35-31 in the Divisional round and Indianapolis won at Denver 24-13.

With each of the four remaining playoff clubs looking to capitalize on the momentum built this past weekend in hopes of advancing to Super Bowl XLIX, they’ll have their work cut out for them on Championship Weekend.
