Getting there won't be so easy. The Patriots have to beat the Denver Broncos in Denver to make it to the big game. Quarterback Peyton Manning and Brady are no strangers, having faced each other more than a dozen times over the years. Denver's offense has a record-breaking year, and Manning threw an NFL record 55 touchdowns to fuel that attack.
The winner plays the NFC champion. The San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks are vying for that title. Both are well-balanced teams with good quarterbacks who can run.
Game time: Sunday, Jan. 19, 3 p.m.
Location: Sports Authority Field (but everyone still calls it Mile High Stadium), Denver, CO
Vegas Insider consensus odds: The Broncos are five-point favorites to win the game.
