The football gods were kind to the football fans of the world, as perhaps the most intriguing matchups possible in the NFC and AFC Championship games are the actual matchups.
In the NFC, you have the two best teams throughout the season -- the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks. Both teams have exciting young QBs in Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick. They have top defenses and are bitter rivals.
In the AFC, you have Peyton Manning vs. Tom Brady. It is the QB matchup everyone wants. They both put up points.
In a nutshell, it is football porn. Would there have been a better pair of games for you?

San Fran/Seattle opened with a three-point line in favor of the Seahawks. The over/under is 40.5.
