NFL Playoff Schedule: Conference championship dates and times set, teams to be finalized Sunday

With one half of the conference championship participants set, and one of the two locations determined, the times of next week's games are official.


The Seattle Seahawks will host either the San Francisco 49ers or the Carolina Panthers at 6:30 p.m. ET Sunday, Jan. 19. The game will be played after the AFC Championship, which will feature the New England Patriots and either the Denver Broncos or San Diego Chargers.

That game will be played at 3 p.m. ET. It will be in Denver if the Broncos defeat the Chargers at 4:40 p.m. ET today. Should the Chargers score the upset over the heavily favored Denver team, they'll travel to New England for a re-match of the 2007 AFC Championship game - which the Patriots won.
