Who will reach the Super Bowl Feb. 1 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ.? We find out Sunday when the Green Bay Packers face the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game and the Indianapolis Colts meet the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.

Here is your game time, TV and betting information for Sunday's action.

NFC Championship Game

Teams: Green Bay Packers (13-4) vs. Seattle Seahawks (13-4)

Game Time: 3:05 p.m.ET

TV: FOX

Odds: Seahawks -7.5

The Packers advanced last week with a controversial 26-21 victory over the Dallas Cowboys, thanks to a replay reversal on what was ruled a non-catch by Dez Bryant and a terrific performance from an injured Aaron Rodgers. The defending champion Seahawks dispatched the Carolina Panthers, 31-17.

Can the Seahawks get back to the Super Bowl again?

"It’s exciting but the job’s not done," says Seattle quarterbac Russell Wilson. "We’re on one mission. You just have to take it one game at a time. Our goal is to go 1-0."

The Packers are trying to return to the Super Bowl for the first since winning Super Bowl XLV four years ago.

"We understand the job's not done," says Green Bay guard T.J. Lang. "Our expectation is to win a championship. Our goal is to go a lot deeper than the NFC Championship Game. Going up to Seattle, it's going to be a good matchup and we're excited about it. It's going to be a tough one, we understand that, but we'll be ready for the challenge."

AFC Championship Game

Teams: Indianapolis Colts (13-5) vs. New England Patriots (13-4)

Game Time: 6:40 p.m. ET

TV: CBS

Odds: Patriots -7

The Colts reached the championship game by upsetting the Denver Broncos, in Denver, 24-13. The led to the ouster of John Fox as Broncos head coach. The Patriots outlasted the Baltimore Ravens, 35-31.The victory moved New England coach Bill Belichick into a tie with Pro Football Hall of Famer Tom Landry for the most post-season wins by a head coach with 20. This Sunday's game will be the ninth AFC Championship for Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady together.

"That's what you play for," says Belichick. "You play to win your division, you play to be in the postseason and then you play to be in the AFC Championship Game and then you see what happens after that. That's what it's all about. That what you work all year for, it's to get to this point. Thankfully we'll be playing next week. It's great to have Tom and his ability and his poise and presence as our quarterback. Obviously he's done a tremendous job throughout the years. There's no quarterback I'd rather have than Tom Brady."

The Colts lost to the New Orleans Saints in the 2009 Super Bowl. This is their first championship game appearance with Andrew Luck at quarterback.

"The Patriots are a great, great team," says Indianapolis head coach Chuck Pagano. "Hall of Fame coach. Hall of Fame quarterback. We all know how hard it is to win there. We know it will be a tall order but it's going to be a great opportunity for our guys. We'll continue to embrace this opportunity and prepare accordingly."
