San Francisco is favored, but Baltimore has beaten the odds more than once this season. The hallmark of both teams are stout, smart defenses, populated from front to back with Pro Bowl-caliber players. On the other side of the ball, the Niners and the Ravens do things a little differently. 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick made the pistol offense a household name this year, elevating what had been a fairly common college system to everyday vernacular of NFL fans. Joe Flacco, runs an offense harkening back to the Air Coryell systems of the last decade.

The list of stories go on and on from there, from Ray Lewis' last game to a pair of head coaching brothers vying for the biggest prize in the land.
