And then there were two... in the AFC. The one seed Broncos and the two seed Patriots are the last two teams standing in the AFC. Boring, I know, but that's what we are left with. Meanwhile, here is the information you need to know:
Who: (2) New England Patriots vs (1) Denver Broncos
What: AFC Championship game
Where: Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Denver CO
When: Sunday, January 19, 12:00pm Pacific Time (1:00pm MT)
Online: CBS Sports Live Extra
It's that classic clash between the former bitter division rivals Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. The NFL love that storyline so very much. They know it's followed by a ‘kaching' every time their names are mentioned together.
If you've watched any of the coverage of this match-up, you know all you ever needed to know and plenty you never cared about. And if you haven't heard it yet, don't worry, they will regurgitate it again at game time and feed it to you like small birds.
As Raiders fans, I'm sure you are a little torn here. The Broncos are the hated rival but how can you possibly root for the tucking Patriots? But at least either Tom Brady or Peyton Manning will leave the field defeated so some solace can be taken from that.
Enjoy the game.
