The Denver Broncos will host the New England Patriots at 3 p.m. ET Sunday, Jan. 19 in the AFC championship game. Seattle will host NFC West rival San Francisco at 6:30 p.m. ET in the NFC Championship.

Denver punched their ticket with a 24-17 win over a resilient Chargers team in the divisional round. San Diego upset Cincinnati in the wild card round to earn the right to take on Denver for a third time this season.

New England manhandled the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional round. It ended Indianapolis's season a week after launching a 28-point comeback to beat Kansas City 45-44.

Seattle survived a late push by New Orleans to host their first NFC Championship game since 2005. The Saints defeated Philadelphia to advance to the divisional round.

The 49ers defeated Carolina through attrition, beating them down throughout the second half. A chippy game that looked like it could be close by the end was handled in stride by the red-hot 49ers.

FOX will broadcast the NFC game, and CBS will handle the AFC game.
