After a week of utter foolishness perpetrated by factors outside of the control of both the fans and the media, the sports world finally gets a chance to actually watch something decided on the field.
The San Francisco 49ers take on the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship Game in the Georgia Dome at 3 p.m. EST on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the Baltimore Ravens travel to Gillette to take on the New England Patriots in a rematch of the 2012 AFC title bout.
Are we looking at a "Harbowl"? Will there be a rare matchup between two preseason favorites in the Super Bowl? Will Ray Lewis finally play his last NFL game after what has been a mighty impressive run for the Ravens?
These questions and more are guaranteed to be answered by Sunday night.
Bleacher Report figured it made sense to take a gander at what experts around the world of football are predicting for championship weekend.
This article will give you those predictions, as well as a bit of my own analysis.
Sorry, ESPN (and B/R head honcho Matt Miller), I may just take some exception to what you are proclaiming to be the "truth" heading into Sunday.
This should be fun.
