NFL Championship Games Set

The Denver Broncos celebrated for the second time in as many days. Less than 24 hours after Denver ended New England's quest for its third straight Super Bowl victory, Pittsburgh held on to beat Indianapolis, 21-18. That ensured that the Broncos will be home for the AFC title game next Sunday at 2:00. The Broncos also are grateful they won't have to visit the R-C-A Dome, where they allowed 90 points in playoff losses to the Colts the past two seasons.

The Carolina Panthers, who were in the Super Bowl two years ago, will go to Seattle to play for the NFC title after winning 29-21 in Chicago. Both the Steelers and Panthers will be trying to get to the Super Bowl by winning three road games, something accomplished only by New England after the 1985 season. The Panthers also will be without their leading rusher, DeShaun Foster, who suffered a broken ankle in the win over the Bears. Carolina already is without running back Stephen Davis, also out for the year with injuries.  That game in Seattle will kick-off at 5:30.
