What team is under the most pressure to reach the Super Bowl?

Under pressure. Queen and David Bowie wrote a song about it. And as it relates to the NFL playoffs, everyone is feeling it.

The Colts, Jets, Saints and Vikings find themselves one game from the Super Bowl, one game from their ultimate goal. However, each team followed its own path to reach this point.

The Colts surrendered a chance at the perfect season to rest their starters late, claiming all along that the Super Bowl was their true objective. The high-powered Saints recaptured their aura in the divisional round, putting themselves in position to erase playoff demons of the past. The Vikings went out and convinced Brett Favre to suit up again, and nothing less than a Super Bowl will do. The Jets? They're led by a brash rookie coach not afraid to map out the team's celebration parade in Manhattan.

Jason and Solomon have made their picks. Read their take, and then enter into the discussion below.
