The 2012 NFL season may be over, but football in America never ends. Now begins the long march to Super Bowl XLVII. It's a route that winds through the start of free agency on March 12 and continues through the draft, on April 25, 26 and 27.

Still, the path to glory is different for every franchise. So SI.com is laying out offseason road maps for each team -- two teams per day, from the teams that need the most work to contend in 2013 to the ones that are in pretty good shape. Thirty-two teams. Sixteen days. One Lombardi Trophy.
