By Sunday night, we'll know the two teams left standing as the road to the Super Bowl nears its conclusion with the AFC and NFC Championships. The Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos and New England Patriots are your four teams left standing in the 2014 NFL playoffs, and two of these teams will earn a trip to New Jersey and a spot in Super Bowl XLVIII. It all gets underway on Sunday afternoon with the AFC Championship, followed by the NFC Championship as a nightcap.

2014 NFC Championship

There's also the whole Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick -- two of the bright young quarterbacks in the game -- thing going on.
