New England's offense will look to pave the way towards another Super Bowl appearance.

Well, folks, we’ve reached championship Sunday in the 2012 NFL Playoffs. There were plenty of fireworks and surprises last weekend and this Sunday figures to be no different as the final four teams compete to play in Super Bowl XLVI on February 5 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

The beauty of the NFL is that you never know what will happen week to week, much less season to season. There isn’t a single team in this year’s final four that was in last year’s final four.

The first game on Sunday will determine the AFC Championship. Tom Brady leads the top-seeded New England Patriots to their sixth AFC Championship game in the past 11 seasons as they host the Baltimore Ravens. This game will air at 3:00 p.m. ET on CBS.

The NFC Championship will take place at 6:30 p.m. ET on FOX and will feature the San Francisco 49ers playing host to Eli Manning and the New York Giants. This is a rematch of their Week 10 outing which saw San Francisco defeat New York 27-20.

There are so many intriguing possibilities with regard to potential Super Bowl matchups. Will we see a rematch of Super Bowl XXXV (Ravens-Giants) or Super Bowl XLII (Patriots-Giants)? Will we see brothers as opposing head coaches (Ravens-49ers)? Will we see Tom Brady face the team he rooted for growing up (Patriots-49ers)?

It’s time to delve into the X’s and O’s to see which teams have the advantage and will reach the Super Bowl!
