NFL playoff schedule 2015: Packers-Seahawks, Colts-Patriots set in Championship round

And then there were four.

The AFC And NFC Championship schedules are set now that the Divisional round is complete. We have both No. 1 seeds still alive and hosting their Championship round. Over in the NFC, the Seattle Seahawks will host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at 3:40 p.m. (ET) on FOX. In the AFC, the Indianapolis Colts will visit the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium at 6:40 p.m. (ET) on CBS.

Both the home teams -- Seattle and New England -- have opened as a touchdown favorite in the game. Of course, the Denver Broncos were also a touchdown favorite over the Colts but came away with nothing. So the odds don't mean a whole lot.

The season is whittling its way down to the end, and we have four terrific teams remaining. At least we're assured of a good matchup in the Super Bowl with these final four teams. My early picks would be the Seahawks and Patriots -- just like many people thought before the season.
