Out of 32 teams that began the 2012-2013 NFL season, only four remain. All the chips are on the table for each team with one more win punching a ticket to the Superbowl.
In the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, the Falcons will try and replicate another win, this time against the San Francisco 49ers. The Falcons had a fourth quarter scare in their Divisional Playoff game last weekend against the Seahawks, giving up 21 points and the lead. Only an impressive drive down the field by Matt Ryan and his team with less than a minute left in the game, and then a 49 yard field goal, saved what would have otherwise been a tough loss for the Falcons to swallow. For Sunday, conditions outside the dome should be cool but pleasant, with mostly sunny skies and an afternoon high near 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Winds will be out of the northwest and calm at 5-10 miles per hour.
For the Baltimore Ravens, their final obstacle standing in the way of New Orleans is a rematch against the New England Patriots. This will be the third time these two teams have faced off in the post-season, cementing an intense rivalry. It being the middle of winter the weather will not disappoint with an afternoon high in the upper 30′s, but quickly dropping off to below freezing by or just after dark. Daytime skies will be mostly clear with clouds increasing through Sunday night. Winds will be out of the northwest and breezy, with gusts up to 25 miles per hour. These winds should weaken somewhat toward kickoff time at 6:30 PM EST. With Gillette Stadium open to the elements, fans attending the game will want to dress accordingly.
