Here is the game schedule:

49ers vs. Falcons

SB Nation blog: Niners Nation | The Falcoholic

Where: Georgia Dome, Atlanta, GA
When: Sunday, January 20, 3:00 p.m. ET
TV: Fox
Odds: 49ers -4
Picks: Falcons, 27-20

The 49ers are the favorite but it's the Falcons who were the number one seed in the NFC so they host the game in Atlanta. The Falcons hope to prove their doubters wrong who say they're overrated and the 49ers look to Colin Kaepernick again to see if he can keep his magical run alive.

Ravens vs. Patriots

SB Nation blog: Baltimore Beatdown | Pats Pulpit

Where: Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, MA
When: Sunday, January 20, 6:30 p.m. ET
TV: CBS
Odds: Patriots -8
Picks: Patriots, 35-27

The Patriots host and are favored in a rematch of last year's AFC Championship game. The Ravens hope to avenge their close loss last season and make a trip to the Super Bowl in Ray Lewis' final season in the NFL.
