And then there were four.
A wild weekend of National Football League action saw two games come down to the wire, while the other two were decided fairly early on, as four teams advanced on to compete in their respective conference championship games.
In the American Football Conference, the Baltimore Ravens will head to Gillette Stadium to play the New England Patriots. The game will be held next Sunday, January 20, at 6:30 p.m. on CBS (all times listed in this article are Eastern).
Earlier in the day, the San Francisco 49ers will travel to Atlanta to play the National Football Conference's top-rated team in the Falcons, who barely survived a ferocious comeback effort today from the Seattle Seahawks and their phenomenal rookie quarterback, Russell Wilson. The game will begin at 3:00 p.m., and will be broadcast on Fox.
The winners of both the AFC and NFC Championship games will head to Super Bowl 47 (XLVII for you traditionalists) in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, to be held February 3 at 6:30 p.m. The game airs on CBS and will be announced by Jim Nantz and Phil Simms.
Who do you see going head-to-head in New Orleans? My dreams were crushed when the Ravens cheated (let me believe what I want to believe) to beat my beloved Denver Broncos. I think we are going to see the 49ers and their fantastic defense advance to the big game, where they will shut down the Patriots. Sorry Ray Lewis, the dream ends in one week.
