The AFC and NFC Championship game times and dates are set. Championship Sunday starts with the Patriots visiting the Broncos and ends with the Seahawks hosting the 49ers.

Unfortunately we are not talking about the Kansas City Chiefs playing next weekend in the AFC Championship game. That will be the Patriots and Broncos while the 49ers and Seahawks meet up for a divisional rivalry game in the NFC Championship game. Both games take place next Sunday afternoon.
