Half of the NFL's Final Four is set, as the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots moved on to their Conference Championship Games with their victories on Saturday. Today, we will find out who each of those teams will be playing and, in the case of the AFC Championship Game, where the match-ups will take place.
The festivities will start at 12:00 Noon Central time with the NFC Divisional Playoff game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Carolina Panthers. The game will be broadcast on FOX and your team in the booth will be Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. Your referee for this one will be Carl Cheffers. If you're looking for the game on satellite radio, you can find the national feed from the Dial Global Radio Network on Channel 88 on both Sirius and XM Radios. The Panthers' feed will be on Channel 86 on both Sirius and XM, while the Niners' feed will be on Sirius Channel 92/XM Channel 225.
That will be followed at approximately 3:30 PM Central time with the AFC Divisional Playoff game that will feature the Denver Broncos hosting the San Diego Chargers. The game will be on CBS, and your announcing team will be Jim Nantz and Phil Simms. The referee for this game will be Clete Blakeman. The satellite radio setup is basically the same, with the Dial Global broadcast happening on Channel 88 on both Sirius and XM, the Broncos' feed on Channel 86 on Sirius and XM, and the Chargers' feed on Sirius Channel 92/XM Channel 225.
The NFC Championship Game will take place next weekend in Seattle, regardless of whether Carolina or San Francisco emerges victorious this afternoon. The AFC Championship Game will take place in either Denver or Foxboro. If the Broncos win this afternoon, they will host the Patriots next Sunday. If the Chargers win, they will travel to take on the Patriots.
We're about an hour away from kickoff time for the early game, ladies and gentlemen. If you're going to be watching the games, come hang out and talk about them with your fellow Vikings fans!
