During the NFL regular season, we had our weekly fun with bold predictions, forecasting the result of each game and often with outlandish scenarios and familiar/historic references. It was hit or miss all season, most miss, but done tongue in cheek with the hopes of informing and entertaining at the same time.
Now it’s time to get serious.
The San Francisco 49ers, Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots are one win away from getting back to the Super Bowl, a feat that’s been a long time coming for the first three franchises listed. For the Pats, it could be business as usual, they'd be making a sixth Super Bowl appearance in the last 12 seasons.
But what will it take to get there and which players will play the most pivotal of roles on Sunday?
We join our first conference championship game of the afternoon already in progress.
