From the Reality viewpoint, I think the Pats are clearly the best team in the mix and will likely win it all.

From the Fairy Tale point of view, two teams fit that category; the Ravens and SF.

The Ravens have "The Ray Lewis Story" (team identity, last season, yadda, yadda, yadda...) as well as the "Flacco Story" (Joe is determined to prove he's really an 'elite' QB, etc...) and SF has the " Kaepernick Story" (kid comes off the bench, guides the team to the playoffs and so on).

Both stories are good and if I was picking a winner based on the Fairy Tale aspect, I'd pick Baltimore.

But being a realist and seeing just how good New England is, I'm picking the Pats.
Don't forget Tony Gonzalaz is retiring after this year, so hopefully he'll be part of the Fairy Tale mix. Hate this season...smh
