Week in review

Virtually every football fan has an opinion on who’s bound for Indianapolis and the Super Bowl after the AFC and NFC Championship Games this weekend.

With my Raiders watching from the sidelines yet again, I don’t have a dog in this weekend’s fights.

But I’d like to see the Harbaughs square off for family bragging rights. I’d like to see a Ravens-49ers Super Bowl — and see the inevitable story about the seer who predicted such way back in September.

Our experts have their opinions about what’s going to unfold Sunday.

Check out Stephen A. Smith‘s thoughts on the NFC Championship Game in the video above.

On ESPN First Take Jemele Hill and Skip Bayless made their predictions for the AFC Championship game in the video below.
