One more slate of games until the big one. Of course, there's more than enough to keep fans of the St. Louis Rams occupied. The AFC opens things up today, with the Baltimore Ravens traveling to play the New England Patriots.

The Rams played three of the four teams in the conference championships today. The Pats were the only team they did not play, but will have that opportunity later this year in the London game.

Baltimore beat the Rams by a final score of 37-7. The game was one of those rare occasions to piss off Steve Spagnuolo, who in a huff told his wife that they would no longer be speaking with the Harbaughs. He softened his stance a day later.

I really have no vested rooting interest in either of these teams. It's a sham if Josh McDaniels ends up getting a Super Bowl ring this season given his body of work in St. Louis, so there is that.

Complete coverage of the game can be found over at SB Nation's dedicated AFC Championship story stream, including highlights, news, etc.

I've got my weekly mock draft posting tomorrow at SB Nation, so stay tuned for that.

Catch up on the week that was in the multitude of stories below!
