The AFC Championship Game kicks off the NFL weekend, while the NFC Championship Game will be played in primetime on Sunday night.

The NFL will once again use a schedule for their Championship games with timeslots slightly altered from the usual week-to-week timeslots. The AFC Championship Game will be first up on Sunday, with the NFC Championship game being played in primetime, but a tad earlier than the usual Sunday Night Football timeslot. CBS carries the Baltimore Ravens vs. the New England Patriots, while FOX carries the New York Giants vs. the San Fransisco 49ers.
