- Divisional Round Review: Round 2 of the NFL playoffs saw the Ravens shock Peyton and the Broncos, Colin Kaepernick have his way with the Packers, Matt Ryan score the first postseason win of his career, and the Pats hang 40+ on the Texans for the second time this season. Hear our take.

- NFL's Final 4: The race for the Lombardi Trophy has come down to the 49ers, Falcons, Ravens and Patriots. What are the keys to each Conference Championship Game, and who will ultimately meet in New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII? Our answers may surprise you.

- None to the Hall: Last week, steroid-tainted stars Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa were denied entry into baseball's Hall of Fame, with voters failing to elect any candidates for only the second time in 40 years. Was this decision fair or foul? We'll tell you.


We debate whether or not former Braves outfielder Dale Murphy is Hall of Fame worthy, and if the Ravens have made a big mistake by poking the Patriots with a proverbial stick just days before their AFC title game matchup!

All this and more in this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast!
