Green Bay Packers
The San Francisco 49ers have had arguably the best defense in the NFL over the past two seasons, but Baltimore Ravens tight end Ed Dickson is not overly concerned about it.

The Super Bowl is rarely a match-up of two teams that cruise their way into the championship game. Only once since 1993 have the top seeds from either conference made it to the Super Bowl. The fact of the matter is that once you get in to the playoffs, anything is possible.So if that is the case, then the real goal is to simply make it in to the playoffs and then fight, claw, and...
