Editor's Note: SB Nation's partner FanDuel is running a $1M fantasy football league on Sunday. First place wins $100,000. Join now!

We're almost out of meaningful football, ladies and gentlemen. After the two games this weekend, the only game remaining that means anything until September will be Super Bowl 50, which will take place on 7 February at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, CA. For now, we're staring down the barrel of Conference Championship weekend, as the NFL's Final Four will battle for the right to play in that game.

We're going to take a look at how and where you can watch both of Sunday's Conference Championship contests. Both of these games will be taking place tomorrow, which is 24 January 2016.

Things will get underway in Denver, with the AFC Championship Game between the visiting New England Patriots and the hosts, the Denver Broncos. Both of these teams received first-round byes in this year's NFL playoffs, and both of them collected seven-point home victories in the Divisional playoffs. The Patriots defeated the Kansas City Chiefs by a score of 27-20, while the Broncos knocked off the Pittsburgh Steelers by a score of 23-16.

The AFC Championship Game will be shown on CBS, with kickoff scheduled for 2:00 PM Central time. The broadcast team will be Jim Nantz and Phil Simms. In the Twin Cities area, that's WCCO, Channel 4.

If you're going to attempt to listen to the game on the radio, you'll have to find an affiliate on either the Broncos' Radio Network (hey, they even have an affiliate in North Dakota) or the Patriots' Radio Network. If you have satellite radio at your disposal, you can find the Patriots' feed on Sirius Channel 83 or XM Channel 226, or the Broncos' feed on Sirius Channel 82 or XM Channel 82. There will also be a national broadcast of the game on Westwood One, which you can find on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Channel 88.

If you're looking to find an online stream of the game, there are a couple of different ways of finding this one.

1. WATCH ONLINE WITH CBSSPORTS.COM: Simply head to this link to stream the Broncos-Patriots game in the NFL Playoffs. Live streaming on mobile devices is only available for eligible Verizon Wireless customers via the NFL Mobile App.

2. Via the CBS Sports Channel/App on Roku, AppleTV, XBOX One, Windows 10, and Chromecast. Plenty of streaming options should you be utilizing other methods of television watching.

That will be followed by the NFC Championship Game, which will be broadcast on FOX. Kickoff for that one is scheduled for 5:30 PM Central time, with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman bringing you the play-by-play. In the Twin Cities, the local FOX affiliate is KMSP, Channel 9. Both of these teams also advanced through close home victories. The Cardinals beat the Packers 26-20 in overtime, while the Panthers held off the Seahawks to win by a score of 31-24.

Radio stuff will be handled by either the Cardinals' Radio Network or the Panthers' Radio Network. On the satellite radio side, the Cardinals feed will be on either Sirius Channel 83 or XM Channel 226, while the Panthers' feed will be on either Sirius Channel 82 or XM Channel 82. Like the AFC Championship, there will also be a national broadcast from Westwood One, which will be on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Channel 88.

As far as online streaming, the game will be carried on Fox Sports Go, which requires a subscription.

As usual, do not promote illegal streams here at The Daily Norseman in any way, shape, or form. Anyone that does will be treated like the spammers that hammer our game coverage threads every week.

That's how you can watch the NFC and AFC Championship Games on Sunday, ladies and gentlemen. We will have Open Threads for each game up and running approximately half an hour before the kickoff of each contest.
