Peyton Manning & Russell WilsonIn this episode of the Red Light Sports Ramble, Evan and Troy will recap the NFC and AFC Championship games.  Peyton Manning will get a shot at that second ring, this time with the Denver Broncos.  Russell Wilson, has silenced his critics and will try to win his first ring.

The early game of the day saw the Denver Broncos come out and completely outplay the New England Patriots.  Tom Brady did not get the New England Patriots into the end zone until the fourth quarter.  Denver forced the Patriots to a 3 and out on their first two possessions and that set the tone for what would be the AFC Championship game.  The Bronco defense must not have bought into the hype of the Offensive line (like co-host Troy did), and they not only stuffed the running game but applied pressure to Tom Brady throughout the game.  There would be no last minute heroics for the New England Patriots on this day and “Omaha” will move on to New York.

The rivalry game took place in the evening and it was nothing short of the billing.  Two teams that literally “dislike” each other and that is being nice.  A low scoring first half was expected with two of the leagues best defensive units battling all day long.  The scoring picked up in the second half and this game would come down to one last drive.  Colin Kaepernick drove the 49ers down the field and put them in prime position to make their 2nd straight trip to the Super Bowl.  However, on a corner route to Michael Crabtree (one on one coverage with Richard Sherman), Sherman deflected the ball in the air that was subsequently intercepted and ended the game.  An emotional Richard Sherman after the game, a baffled Erin Andrews and everyone else knows the extent of that rant.  If you don’t – he is still trending on twitter.

Listen to the boys recap the game and maybe mention the post-game interview on the Red Light Sports Ramble.
