The 2017 NFL playoffs are coming to a close with what will be two awesome games in the AFC Championship and the NFC Championship and here’s game time, TV info, odds, and everything else you need to watch the game.

The early game is the Green Bay Packers visiting the Atlanta Falcons. The Packers are the most surprising team left in contention. A series of injuries and bad luck throughout the season saw them sitting with a 4-6 record by Week 12, but they battled back to steal the division from the Detroit Lions. The Packers earned the NFC’s No. 4 seed in the process, the lowest of all remaining teams. The Falcons are the No. 2 seed in the NFC and have every chance to make it back to the Super Bowl after an MVP-esque season from Matt Ryan. Will Aaron Rodgers be able to take down both of the top two seeds in the NFC and play in his second Super Bowl?

The late game is the New England Patriots hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Patriots are the highest remaining seed, being the No. 1 team in the AFC. They’re the favorites to defeat the Steelers in Foxborough this week and also the current Super Bowl favorites. If successful, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick will surpass Terry Bradshaw and Chuck Noll as the most successful quarterback-coach tandem of all time, at least in terms of Super Bowl victories.
