AFC, NFC championship games: Giants vs. 49ers, Ravens vs. Patriots

Only two more weekends of NFL football remain — sorry, Pro Bowl. What we’ve learned so far is that home teams rule, except for those pesky New York Giants, and that the officiating has been questionable at worst, inconsistent at best.

The MVP so far, right now? Jack Harbaugh, father of two of the four head coaches who will be working Sunday. The Baltimore Ravens, with John Harbaugh the only man to advance to the playoffs in his first four seasons as head coach after taking over a team with a losing record, play the New England Patriots for the AFC title in a 3 p.m. EST matinee (CBS).

In the 6:30 p.m. game (Fox), the Giants — the only road team to win in these here playoffs — travel to San Francisco to face the 49ers, with Jim Harbaugh in his first year as coach, in a matchup that sounds like something out of the history books.

What’s your take on which teams will play in Super Bowl XLVI? Which of these four teams do you want to see in the Super Bowl?
