Welcome to Championship weekend! Our last great weekend of football with multiple games. The week after this it's the Pro Bowl and then the week after that the NFL schedule ends for the year with the 2015 Super Bowl.

The Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks are up first in the NFC Championship game on Sunday afternoon. After that the AFC Championship is up with Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts visiting Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

The Seahawks and Patriots are both about touchdown favorites in this game.

Matt Verderame's pick: Seahawks 23, Packers 17

My pick: Packers 27, Seahawks 24

I just want this to be a close game. I'm picking the Packers partially because I picked them way at the beginning of the year. Consistency and all that. But I'm not confident in that pick at all. The Packers are a great team with the NFL's best quarterback but you can't be confident picking any team to go into Seattle and win. That's a tough place to play and the Seahawks have gotten hot at the right time.

(4) Indianapolis Colts vs. (1) New England Patriots, 6:40 p.m. (CBS)

You can stream the AFC Championship here.

Matt Verderame's pick: Patriots 38, Colts 21

My pick: Patriots 34, Colts 30

What a great AFC Championship game. Almost feels like a passing of the torch situation from Brady to Luck -- if Brady were done. Which he definitely is not. He isn't having a Peyton Manning moment where he looks 38 years old. Brady looks as sharp as ever. The Colts defense showed up big time last week against Denver but it's tough to ask a no-name defense like that to do that two weeks in a row.
