The regular NFL season is in the rearview mirror, playoff clashes have been established and the wild card weekend is on the horizon.
The Ravens, behind the probable quarterback MVP Lamar Jackson, will enter as the No. 1 seed in the AFC and favorites to win Super Bowl 54. Defeat of Week 17 of defending champion Patriots against the Dolphins pushed them into the seed No. 3 and allowed the Chiefs to enjoy a first-round goodbye.
The NFC image is fuller. The 49ers are the number 1 seed, but they will not be favored too significantly over the Saints, Packers, Vikings and Seahawks.
Here is everything you need to know about what will surely be an exciting postseason football month.
