Since there seems to be no other liveblog for the AFC NFC Championships of American NFL football: here's one


AFC Championship is on now on CBS featuring New England at Denver
NFC Championship will be on Fox at 630pm ET featuring San Francisco @ Seattle

Although recent NFL postseasons have seen numerous upsets and surprise champions, the 2014 iteration has provided a return to chalk. Many saw the Seahawks, 49ers, Broncos and Patriots as the league's four best teams, and those four have weeded out the underdogs.

However, that does not mean surprises are not in store for the conference championships. Both games pit teams that are not only evenly matched but remarkably similar. Consequently, something must give in each contest, for none of the four teams can expect to impose their preferred style on the opposition.

It seems likely we are in store for some surprises after a straightforward divisional round. Here, then, are bold predictions for each conference championship game.

1:35 PM PT: Denver leads New England 13-3 at the Half

1:55 PM PT: Denver leads New England 20-3

2:29 PM PT: 4th quarter Denver leads New England 23-3

2:48 PM PT: Now Denver still leading 26-10.

2:52 PM PT: Denver still ahead, but now 26-16 (failed 2-point try)

3:11 PM PT: Denver wins -  NB: MTmofo will have a NFC diary up

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
