The Tom Brady redemption tour is headed to the Super Bowl. After beginning the 2016 season suspended for four games for his role in the ''Deflategate'' scandal, the New England quarterback relentlessly carried the Patriots to an unprecedented ninth appearance in the title game, and his seventh. Brady threw for a franchise playoff-best 384 yards and three touchdowns in a 36-17 rout of the helpless Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday in New England's sixth consecutive AFC championship game.

Super Falcons: Atlanta routs Packers 44-21 for NFC title (Yahoo Sports)

Matt Ryan and Julio Jones teamed up for a dominant playoff performance, and the Atlanta Falcons ignored all those ghosts from the last half-century. Ryan threw for 392 yards and four touchdowns in another MVP-worthy showing, while Jones shook off a lingering toe injury to haul in nine catches for 180 yards and two scores, leading the Falcons to a 44-21 blowout of the storied Green Bay Packers in the NFC championship game Sunday. Atlanta (13-5) will face either New England or Pittsburgh in the Feb. 5 Super Bowl in Houston.

A man has been arrested and charged with setting off an early-morning fire alarm at a Boston hotel that roused the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers ahead of their playoff with the New England Patriots. Massachusetts State Police spokesman Dave Procopio says Pittsburgh's team was staying at the Logan Airport Hilton hotel when a fire alarm went off at about 3:40 a.m. Sunday. Procopio says evidence suggests the pulled alarm was meant as a prank against the Steelers.

Le'Veon Bell was hurt heading into AFC championship game (Yahoo Sports)

Steelers star running back Le'Veon Bell was bothered by a groin injury even before he was forced to leave the AFC championship game in the second quarter of Pittsburgh's 36-17 loss to New England. Bell had only six carries for 20 yards, and his absence was felt by an offense that sputtered near the goal line. DeAngelo Williams had a touchdown run for Pittsburgh, but the Steelers rushed for just 54 yards.

LeGarrette Blount burst through the line at the Pittsburgh 19, slipped one tackle and bulled into another defender at the 9. Safety Mike Mitchell wrapped him up, but just got pushed backward. Three more Steelers pitched in, still unable to bring the New England running back down.

Super Bowl will pit Brady's Patriots against Ryan's Falcons (Yahoo Sports)

A season that began with Tom Brady serving a four-game suspension will end with him in the Super Bowl, where his New England Patriots will take on Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons. While much of the attention between now and the NFL championship game on Feb. 5 in Houston will be focused on Brady vs. Ryan, the truly key matchup could be Atlanta's score-at-will offense, which produced the most points during the regular season, against the unheralded defense of New England, which allowed the fewest.

Oddsmakers like the New England Patriots by a field goal over the Atlanta Falcons in what experts think will be a high-scoring Super Bowl. Most are also expecting an offensive showdown, with an over/under of 59 at some sports books the biggest ever in Super Bowl history. ''You've got the Patriots and then you have this scoring machine in Atlanta,'' said veteran oddsmaker Jimmy Vaccaro at the South Point.

Rodgers unable to pull injury-riddled Packers off the mat (Yahoo Sports)

All afternoon, Aaron Rodgers watched a stream of teammates limp off the field with injuries. It got so bad toward the end that Green Bay's star quarterback had Letroy Guion, the starting nose tackle, taking snaps at guard. Rodgers kept his composure throughout the Packers' 44-21 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC championship game Sunday, but his emotions were raw when asked about Jordy Nelson, who played with broken ribs.

Colts fire general manager Ryan Grigson after 5 seasons (Yahoo Sports)

Ryan Grigson spent everything he could to bring another Super Bowl title to Indianapolis. On Saturday, Colts owner Jim Irsay fired his general manager after five up-and-down years that ended with Indy missing the playoffs in consecutive seasons for the first time since 1997-98. After almost three weeks of silence from the Colts, the assumption was that Irsay would again surprise Colts' fans by keeping Grigson and coach Chuck Pagano for another season.
