The AFC and NFC Championship games are over which can only mean that Super Bowl XLVII is right around the corner. The Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers are set to battle it out in hopes of being named NFL Champion. The Ravens got to this point by finishing the regular season with a 10-6 record and by defeating the Colts, Broncos and finally the Patriots in the AFC Championship game. The 49ers got to the Super Bowl by finishing the regular season with a 11-4-1 record and by defeating the Packers and then the Falcons in the NFC Championship game.
The biggest game of the season goes right along with the largest media hype of the year and, while it would be hard to miss the Super Bowl even if you live in a cave without a TV, it has probably happened. If you're worried that you'll show up to work on Monday, Feb. 4 with nothing to talk about at the water cooler, here's some information on the game to keep you in the loop.
