NFL Playoff Schedule 2012: Championship Round - Game Times, TV Broadcast Info, Announcers & More

Of course, this Sunday will bear witness to the AFC Championship Game and the NFC Championship game, as two lucky teams will punch their ticket to the Super Bowl. Many fans in the Bay Area are hoping one of those two teams will be representing Northern California.

We have all of your pertinent viewing and listening information right here.

The AFC Championship Game is perhaps the game you're not as familiar with, but the teams are certainly no strangers to football fans. Joe Flacco, Ray Lewis and the defense-first Baltimore Ravens will visit the offensively-inclined New England Patriots, led by the always-formidable -- but this week, slightly banged-up -- Tom Brady.

Time: Kickoff is scheduled for 12:00 PM PT/ 3:00 PM ET at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts.

TV: The game will be televised on CBS and on NFL Red Zone. Your announcers for the game are Jim Nantz, Phil Simms and Steve Tasker.

Radio: If you have satellite radio, you can listen to the game on Sirius 86.

Betting Line: The Patriots are currently favored at anywhere from 7 to 9 points, according to our friends over at OddsShark. The over/under is 50 to 50.5 points.

Then it's the game that the entire Bay Area has been waiting for all week. The NFC Championship pitting your hometown San Francisco 49ers against the New York Giants. This will be the historic eighth postseason meeting between these two teams, as you're all well-aware of by now.

Time: The game will begin at 3:30 PM PT/ 6:30 PM ET from Candlestick Park in San Francisco.

TV: The game will be televised on FOX and on the NFL Red Zone channel. Your announcers will be Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, Pam Oliver and Chris Myers.

Radio: If you have satellite radio, you can listen to the game on Sirius 86.

Betting Line: The 49ers are the slimmest of favorites here, favored at 1.5 to 3 points over the visitors. The over/under is between 41.5 and 42.5.
