Whether in the AFC or NFC, it was a good day for several football players with Utah ties in Sunday's NFL playoffs.

Five Baltimore Ravens have ties to the Beehive State, and each will represent the team in Super Bowl XLVII in two weeks after the Ravens knocked out New England 28-13 in the AFC title game.

In the NFC, a pair of 49ers with Utah ties moved on to the Super Bowl when San Francisco rallied to defeat the Atlanta Falcons.
