Conference Championships AFC New England 3 @ Indianapolis 51 NFC Carolina 24 @ Washington 25 Indy-NE match up for the first time in the playoffs, however with Gio not being able to make it, bILL and Indianapolis look to repeat as AFC Champs. Carolina-Washington meet for the fourth time in this OF, however first time in the playoffs. Each game has been close and each game has also gone to the visiting team, so it looks quite possible that there will be back to back Carolina-Indianapolis Super Bowls. Special notes: First time in the five seasons that the NFC has sent both the #1 and #2 seeds to the Championship, however its the third time it has happened in the AFC Championship. Last year Carolina was the first team to host an NFC Championship game and win, and to date the home team in the AFC is 4-0 in Championship games.
