Yesterday's AFC and NFC Championship games were ones to remember — especially for Broncos and Seahawks fans. In the early game, Peyton Manning led Denver to a 26-16 victory over Tom Brady and the Patriots to earn the right to represent the AFC in Super Bowl XLVIII. Denver's opponent will be Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks, who needed some late-game defensive magic from Richard Sherman to secure a 23-17 win over Colin Kaepernick's49ers and a place in the NFL title game.
