The Super Bowl is rarely a match-up of two teams that cruise their way into the championship game. Only once since 1993 have the top seeds from either conference made it to the Super Bowl. The fact of the matter is that once you get in to the playoffs, anything is possible.
So if that is the case, then the real goal is to simply make it in to the playoffs and then fight, claw, and will your way to a title. The 49ers and Ravens have done just that this post-season and one of them will walk away with a ring. Either way, the one seeds are long gone and are just a distant memory.
So how did they get to this place? That is what I’d like to look at. Let’s check out those forgotten moments from the regular season that allowed these two teams to land where they are today. Here are the top five moments that sent the Ravens to the playoffs. Check out the top five reasons the 49ers made it in in my sister article.
