The table has been set for both the AFC and NFC Conference Championship games next weekend for Saturday, January 17th and Sunday, January 18th. The Seattle Seahawks will take on the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game and the Patriots will take on the Colts in the AFC championship game after Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts upset Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.
The next Super Bowl will be held in Glendale, Arizona on February 1st 2015. The two teams that will play for the NFL championship have not been decided but the odds on favorites from the NFC are the Seattle Seahawks while the New England Patriots are the favorites from the AFC conference. Currently, websites have each of these two teams listed at 5/2 in terms of NFL futures odds.
Other teams such as the Green Bay Packers are currently 5/1 while the Broncos are 6/1 to win the Super Bowl this year. Teams that have the longest of odds are some of the teams who barely made it into the playoffs this year including the winner of the NFC South conference. Regardless of the odds the line setters have made each team, the NFL playoffs are always fun to watch because you never know which team could break through and represent their conference in the Super Bowl.
Could we see a coach or a quarterback that has never made it to the big game hoist the Lombardi trophy at the end of the season? NBC will be responsible to internationally televising the Super Bowl this year with Al Michaels doing the play-by-play and Cris Collinsworth providing the color commentary.
