Week 13 of the 2011 season will quickly come to a close, as I look at the overall playoff picture, the only team that is head and shoulders above the rest of the league, are the Green Bay Packers. While the San Francisco 49ers only have two losses on the season, their defeat by the Baltimore Ravens last week exposed the 49ers offensive line and overall blocking scheme against pressure.

The path to the 2012 Super Bowl is set. The NFL playoffs are a gauntlet of games that teams will need to maneuver through in order to earn a trip to the 2012 Super Bowl and the winning team will hoist the Lombardi Trophy.

Super Bowl XLVI will be held on Feb. 5, 2012 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis at 5 p.m. Central time on NBC. Lucas Oil Stadium is the home of the Indianapolis Colts and also hosts number of conventions, exhibitions, trade shows, and NCAA basketball tournament games including the Final Four. It is also the home of the yearly Scouting Combine.

Yes, I know there is still a lot of football to be played this weekend, and Thursday night Seattle throttled the Philadelphia Eagles 31-14 to start this weekend’s games.
