no it doesn't, dummy. there can only be one champion at any level. at the Super Bowl level there is one Champion. for the AFC Championship there is only one champion. NFC Championship there is only champion.
For the divisional round, two teams win in the AFC and two teams win in the NFC, and then they face in for the conference championship. but none of them are champions of the division round because there is still another team that also won the divisional round in both conferences.
