NFL Playoffs 2012, Saturday Open Thread

Today's playoff matchups are New Orleans Saints at San Francisco 49ers at 4:30 p.m. ET on FOX, and Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos at the New England Patriots at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

Can the 49ers slow Drew Brees and the Saints? Can a team quarterbacked by Alex Smith reach the NFC title game? Can Tebow-Mania live for another week? Is Tom Brady headed a step closer to another Super Bowl?

All of these questions will be answered today. Here are some predictions for you to peruse. Which teams do you think will survive today? SB Nation's Andrew Sharp also ranked the potential Super Bowl XLVI matchups from 1-16.

Use this as an Open Thread to discuss all the action.
