After 264 regular-season and playoff games, the 2012 NFL season is down to its version of the final four.

Will we get a Har-Bowl in Super Bowl XLVII? Maybe a rematch of that epic Week 15 game when the San Francisco 49ers laid the wood to the New England Patriots for one half then got dominated in the next? Will the Atlanta Falcons take the next step to their first championship? Or will Tom Brady and Belichick burnish their reputations by getting ring No. 4 for the Pats?

We'll find out Sunday, but here are the best guesses from our experts:
