After 17 weeks of grueling action, the NFL Playoffs begin Saturday with the Wild Card round to begin the road to Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans.
Many of us as Bleacher Report writers are analyzing the playoffs and I'm sure I'm not the first to write predictions on how the postseason will go. Just like the NCAA Men's Basketball bracket challenge, predicting who will go to the Super Bowl is a fun way to earn bragging rights amongst your fellow sports fan.
Many of the matchups in the first round feature teams that are similar and rivals that go into round three of their season-long battle.
There are veterans looking to add another ring on their hand, and rookies looking to further deepen their early impact in the NFL.
The potential storylines that could develop as the games conclude excite football fans and writers alike.
But before one can predict the Super Bowl, one must start with the opening round and work their way to the championship game.
