Which Is the Hottest Team Entering the NFL Playoffs?

Phil SimmsCorrespondent IJanuary 2, 2013

The NFL playoffs are finally here, and the time to crown this season's Lombardi Trophy winner is just weeks away. Of all the teams fighting for the right to be called world champion, which one is playing the best football?

Phil Simms sat down for Behind the Mic on Bleacher Report to let us know which team is hitting its stride at the perfect time.

The Falcons have the best record in the NFC, but are they the hottest team in the NFL right now?

The 49ers are a balanced team with a strong offense and stifling defense, but are they at the top of their game?

Denver looks dangerous behind the arm of Peyton Manning, but does he have enough in the tank to carry the Broncos to the Super Bowl?

Check out the video to get Phil's take on the hottest team entering the NFL playoffs, and don't forget to give us your thoughts in the comments section below.
