NFL

There are only three games left in this NFL season, which on the surface is a sad thing (how did this season go by so fast??!?), but luckily for football fans, the two games this weekend are setting up to be a couple fantastic match-ups. The four remaining teams in the postseason – the Denver Broncos, New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers – each finished with 12 or more wins and are considered by football experts to truly be the four best teams in the NFL this season.

While being the best team is obviously important to having a awesome conference championship weekend, it's all the additional story-lines and rivalries that are setting this weekend up to be one of the greatest weekends of football in memory.

Brady vs. Manning

For the past decade, the debate has raged on across the NFL – who is better: Tom Brady or Peyton Manning? Whichever side you choose, there are plenty of good reasons why you are right. Manning has the huge numbers and more MVP awards; Brady has more championship rings and the most playoff wins in league history. I fall on the side of Tom Brady, although I am extremely biased due to the fact that I am a Patriots fan. However, for many people, this weekend's game between the Broncos and Patriots is the line drawn in the sand; whoever wins the game is the better quarterback and perhaps the greatest of all-time. Of course, that may be going a little overboard, but it has thrown gasoline on the fire of this QB rivalry, which is only adding to the anticipation of the game.

January 2013 Events Image

As we roll into 2014, we say farewell to all of the holiday-themed concerts that were so prevalent last month. Instead, it's time to start thinking about new tours, football, and a near-dead Broadway roster. (Just kidding about the last one, kind of.)

In concerts, the country music genre takes the reigns, with popular acts like George Strait and Florida Georgia Line kicking off their tours this year. Sports fans can check out the BCS National Championship Game (Florida State vs. Auburn) or any of the NFL playoffs. Lastly, in theater, three new shows will open up, including Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.

Here's our hand-picked list of the January's best live events in concerts, sports, and theater!

Concerts

Luke Bryan: The country crooner's 2014 tour, That's My Kind of Night, is a follow-up to his 2013 Dirt Road Diaries tour. This one kicks off in Columbus, OH, Jan. 16 and continues well into 2014; it includes two special Madison Square Garden shows, on Jan. 25 and Sept. 12.
