(Sporting Alert) — The NFL playoffs schedule continues on Sunday with the Conference Championships as old rivals set to do battle.
The AFC and NFC title games are matchups for the ages. Regardless of which teams you are backing in these games, Super Bowl XLVIII is going to be a wonderful matchup in its own right.
When the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots face off at the Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Sunday in the AFC title game, the match brings two of the league’s high-profiled quarterbacks in Tom Brady.and
It will be very interesting to see which of the two quarterbacks’ style will prevail.
Brady likes a running game, while Manning, who broke his rival’s single-season record for touchdown passes this campaign, has a passing game that broke every record in the book.
Can Manning follow up on the best single season any player has ever had? He probably can simply because the Broncos defense is just a little bit better than the Patriots defense.

In the day’s other contest, the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks will battle for the NFC crown.
The NFC title clash at CenturyLink Field, will see the battle of two burly defenses, while two young quarterbacks will take on one another.
Everyone knows that both San Francisco and Seattle have great defenses.
However, the Seahawks’ offense has been floundering for over a month and will be looking to get it going come Sunday.
At the same time, the 49ers, which held off the Seahawks 19-17 in Week 14, are getting hot at the right time, as they have beaten both the Carolina Panthers and Green Bay Packers in the playoffs.
They are the 5 seed and the last few Super Bowl winners have not had a bye. San Francisco will likely be the next.
