We will know the two Super Bowl teams after today.

It is Championship Sunday. The AFC and NFC title games are this afternoon. To start the afternoon, we get one more game of Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. Then in the evening, we get the 15-1 Panthers taking on the 13-3 Arizona Cardinals -- the two top-scoring teams in the NFL this season.

Are you planning on watching? Here is how to do it.

This is the 17th time Peyton Manning and Tom Brady face off. Brady has way more wins, but hasn't beaten Manning in the postseason since 2004. New England has all their offensive weapons healthy, so it will be tough for Denver to win this game, as no one has really been able to slow the Pats' offense when it is at full strength. Will Peyton get another shot a his second ring, or will Brady get another trip to the Super Bowl?

NFC Championship Game: Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers

Game time: 6:40 PM Eastern (4:40 PM Arizona times
TV: FOX
Announcers: Joe Buck, Troy Aikman
Radio: Cardinals Radio NetworkPanthers Radio Network
Online Streaming: FOXSportsGo
Odds: Panthers -4

We get to see the two top MVP candidates battle with the two top-scoring teams in the NFL. The thing is they also have very good defenses. Will this be an offensive or defensive struggle? The Cardinals have a chance to avenge last year's playoff loss in which they set a record for the fewest offensive yards ever. Will Palmer get to go to the Super Bowl for the first time in his long career, or will it be Cam Newton dabbing his way to a potential ring?
