Found January 15, 2012 on Bears Backer:

The Baltimore Ravens will travel to New England next Sunday and the New York Giants will travel to San Fransisco.

Did anyone see that coming?

In the AFC the top two teams made the championship game as expected.

In the NFC, the 49ers took down the high flying Saints and the Giants upset the 15 win Packers at Lambeau.

When the Saints lost I figured the Packers would have an easy path the to Super Bowl, but the Packers blew their big chance.

Bears and Lions fans have to be smiling across the country over the Packers loss.

The next round will be a great test for both road teams.

Expect the Patriots and 49ers to represent their conferences in the Super Bowl.

Don’t be shocked if the Giants pull off another road upset, but it will be tough.

Next Sunday will be the best Sunday of football all season
