AFC/NFC Championship Game Picks

Who's going to Super Bowl 50? Here's our best guess....

Patriots at Broncos (Sunday 3pm)
You just knew it would be these two battling it out for the right to go to the Super Bowl again. Brady vs. Manning 17 (and possibly final time) is set but it'll be the defenses that decide this one.  Can Denver contain Tom Brady in the pocket with enough pressure to contain Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski? Can the Patriots force Peyton Manning to throw deep and make mistakes?  Close one here sealed with a late Pats score.
Winner: Patriots

Cardinals at Panthers (Sunday 6:40pm)
If not for their second half woes this season, the Panthers would be an overwhelming favorite here.  Can the Cardinals head East in less than ideal conditions to stop Cam Newton and Jonathan Stewart? Can the Panthers D stop the speed and athleticism of Arizona WR's Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and John Brown? Another close one to close out Championship Sunday.
Winner: Panthers
