It's finally here. The big game, the Super Bowl, it's time. When it comes to a game of this magnitude, we have to take a look into the game at its most basic level.

Continuing with the Divisional Playoffs, let’s dive into the other AFC match-up!
Welcome to the NFL Playoffs, where the best teams get a rest and your record doesn’t matter. No one cares what you did in the regular season. Sorry, Kansas City, no one cares that you were the last undefeated team in the NFL. Sorry, Philadelphia, no one cares that you won seven of your last eight games. Sorry, Cincinnati, no one cares that you beat out Baltimore and Pittsburgh for the AFC North. Sorry, Green Bay, San Francisco doesn’t care what Aaron Rodgers means to your playoff hopes.
It might seem harsh, but that’s how the playoffs work. You fight and claw and give it all you have, but it’s not good enough if you aren’t hoisting the Lombardi Trophy. Ask everyone who doubted John Elway before he won two. Ask the people who currently doubt Peyton Manning. Ask those who continually defend Tom Brady because he has won three Super Bowls, the last of which was in 2005. The four losers of Wild Card weekend will not get to help continue the trend of Wild Card teams in the Super Bowl. However, San Diego, Indianapolis, New Orleans and San Francisco can continue that trend.
I’ll take a look at the Divisional Round and how each matchup will shake out.
