2016 NFL Playoffs: Conference Championship Sunday Schedule

New, comments
Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

There are only three games remaining in the 2015-16 NFL season. . .and two of them will include commentary by Phil Simms, which really isn't fair, but them's the breaks. While there was plenty of drama in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, when the smoke cleared the top two seeds in each conference remained standing, and now we have what should be a pair of pretty solid Conference Championship games next Sunday.

The action next Sunday will start off in the AFC. CBS will be bringing you the coverage from Sports Authority Field at Mile High, as the top-seeded Denver Broncos will host the second seed, the New England Patriots, in the AFC Championship game. The Broncos managed to hold off the Pittsburgh Steelers by a final score of 23-16 on Sunday afternoon, while the Patriots halted the Kansas City Chiefs' 11-game winning streak on Saturday by a final score of 27-20. The kickoff for that game is scheduled for 2:00 PM Central time on Sunday.

That one will be followed by the NFC Championship Game, which you will be able to see on FOX. The conference's second seed, the Arizona Cardinals, will travel to face the #1 seed in the NFC, the Carolina Panthers. The Cardinals survived on Saturday night by defeating the Green Bay Packers in overtime by a final score of 26-20. The Panthers got out to a 31-0 lead over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday afternoon, and then held on for dear life to win by a score of 31-24. Kickoff for that game is scheduled for 5:30 PM Central time next Sunday.

Who do you think will be meeting in Santa Clara for Super Bowl 50, folks?
