The playoffs continue today as the Seattle Seahawks take on the Carolina Panthers and the Pittsburgh Steelers play the Denver Broncos to decide the final two spots in the conference championship games. Yesterday had some really weird games, with traditionally horrible clock management by Andy Reid dooming the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Arizona Cardinals and Green Bay Packers producing the wildest finish we've seen in quite some time.
Today's games should be good, too, especially the early game: the Seattle Seahawks play the Carolina Panthers. Also known as the battle between the two best teams in the NFL. Chances are, whoever wins this game wins the Super Bowl. The late game's a lot more mediocre, with the Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers facing off for the right to lose to the New England Patriots next week.
Here's everything you need to know to watch today's games.
