With the Saints and the Eagles out of the running in the NFC, the chase to represent the NFC in Miami for the Super Bowl is wide open. The 49ers, Packers, Seahawks and Vikings all have Super Bowl aspirations, and we had media members from all teams join the Bill Michaels Show on Thursday to tell us why they think they're Super Bowl contenders.

The NFC's Divisional round of the playoffs gets underway Saturday at 3:35, with the Vikings traveling to San Francisco to take on the #1 seed 49ers, one week removed from upsetting the Saints in the Wild Card round.

The 49ers locked up the top seed with a goal line stand week 17 against the Seahawks, so the rest of the NFC has to go through San Francisco to make the Super Bowl.

The Seahawks and Packers are the last matchup of the NFL Divisional round, with kickoff at 5:40 on Sunday evening. The Packers earned a first round bye with a sloppy win over the Lions week 17, and look to be the healthiest team left alive in the playoffs.

The banged up Seahawks beat an even more banged up Eagles team 17-9 last weekend, and seem to be limping into this matchup with the Packers, but you can never count out the clutch play of Russell Wilson or the coaching of Pete Carroll.

Who do you think will come out on top and play in the NFC Championship game next weekend?
