After an exciting round of divisional matchups, only four teams remain in the postseason picture.

A week ago, it seemed unthinkable that both the New Orleans Saints and the Green Bay Packers would be watching the NFC Championship game on TV, but the San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants showed no respect for conventional wisdom, delivering season-defining performances to advance.

Over in the AFC, the Tim Tebow bandwagon came to an abrupt halt at a cold Gillette Stadium, as Tom Brady and the top-seeded New England Patriots held a passing clinic to re-assert their Super Bowl credentials. 

They will face the Baltimore Ravens, who gutted out a win over a spirited Houston Texans team that struggled in the face of three key turnovers by rookie quarterback T.J. Yates.

Our final four throw up some exciting Super Bowl possibilities, with great storylines and intrigue by the truckload. To borrow the old boxing cliche, "styles make fights", and the main event—Super Bowl XLVI—promises to be one of the best in recent memory.

Let's take a walk through some of the potential themes we could be treated to in Indianapolis.
