- Conference Championship Recap: The Conference Championship Round in the NFL saw both teams that were eliminated in the same round last year redeem themselves in a big way the second time around. How exactly did the 49ers and Ravens manage to punch their tickets to Super Bowl XLVII? We'll tell you.

- Te'o's Character Shattered?: Last week it was reveled that Manti's Te'o's "girlfriend" who supposedly died of leukemia back in September, never really existed. So the question is, was Te'o an innocent victim in an elaborate hoax, or the mastermind behind the sham? Hear our take.

- The Passing of Two Greats: On Saturday, former Cardinals outfielder Stan Musial and former Orioles manager Earl Weaver passed away. We reflect on their importance to the game and the lasting legacies they leave behind.


We give some early keys to victory for both the 49ers and Ravens in the big game, and share our thoughts on the ongoing "retirement tour" of Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis!

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