    In the NFC, it’s going to be: 1) Seahawks 2) Saints 3) Cowboys 4) Lions 5) Panthers 6) Niners.

    If they make it that far I like TB and Pats in cold snowy windy Metlife Stadium

    Re: Breakdown of Playoff Picture

    I'm not sure that the Broncos can hang on to their #1 slot.

    The Broncos played an amazing 170 snaps on Monday night and into Tuesday, until about 12:25 a.m.  Then I assume that they took the redeye 2000 miles home, probably pulling in at 6:00 a.m.  The team got whacked around pretty badly in New England.  Then they have to play on a short week at Arrowhead Stadium. 

    This raises the question of whether the Chiefs can hang on to their #1 slot.  They aren't quite the Broncos.  Their two away games against divisional rivals are the best chance at a loss, also Indy at home.

    The Patriots are tired too, but at least they're playing a team that couldn't beat the Jacksonville Jaguars last week.  My guess is that they'll put Soap in at nose to counter Houston's great center, and that they'll double team J.J. Watt.

    Re: Breakdown of Playoff Picture

    I see three teams as possible SB winners: Broncos, Seahawks, and the Patriots.

     

    In the NFC I see Seattle win over the Saints this week, and more or less secure homefield. That makes them the safest bet to go to New Jersey in February. The AFC is a lot more open, but neither the Bengals, Ravens, or the Colts are for real this season. The Chiefs are going to drop a game or two more down the road, and wont win twice on the road against Broncos and the Patriots.

    The 6th spot in the AFC is up for grabs. Ravens are a game ahead of Jets, Steelers, Dolphins, Titans and Chargers. Hard to know who makes it off that list. If the Patriots have to go through Denver, that would be tough. Otherwise, The Patriots would be the favorites to make it to the SuperBowl.

    The NFC is a complete crap-shoot for the playoffs. Seattle is a Jekyll and Hyde team. If the Niners or Lions face them in the second round, it would not shock me if the underdogs come out ahead. If that happens, either the Niners or the Lions would be favorites for making it to the SuperBowl. The Lions' defense is awesome, especially up front. They could be the team that gives the Patriots or Broncos trouble. The rest of the NFC playoff teams are going to have a difficult time with either of the them.

    My prediction: Patriots over Lions 21-17.

    Interesting pick with Detroit, but I see where you are coming from. Personally, if Seattle gets the 1 seed, I think they go to the Super Bowl...they are very tough to beat at home.

    The 6 seed in the AFC is such a mess right now that I think it is hard to judge for a few more weeks.

    4 teams to me are Super Bowl worthy. Pats, Broncos, Saints & Seahawks. The 49ers are borderline contender dpends on what Crabtree  can bring to their O.

    I don't like anybody for that #6 AFC seed. 

    San Diego is the best team of the bunch with an 8.4 rating but they have the toughest schedule.  Tennessee's next three games will be tough.  Baltimore has a tough schedule and they're a pretty bad 7-9 team.  The New York Jets grade out at 4.2 wins out of 16 if they started anew right now -- they're horrid.  I'll give Miami the nod because their only really tough game is at home against the Patriots.  However, they're playing like a 7-9 team.  In short, the door is open for a team with seven losses to step on the gas and take the #6 seed with a 9-7 record.  That includes Buffalo, Pittsburgh and Cleveland.  Of this bunch Pittsburgh is the only one with even a 7-9 power rating.  Oakland is about as good as San Diego but they have eight losses already so they're microscopic.

    I say, give it to Jacksonville.

    I don't know if they make the dance, but Buffalo will finish no worse than 8-8. They're 4-7, next three are ATL at home, at TPA and JAX, then MIA at home and the Pats in Foxboro in a game that could be meaningless to the Pats.

    I think you nailed it other than the Panthers have a chance to take the Division causing the  Saints to land in the wild card game since they're only a game behind and they play them twice in the last 4 games?

    Worst case scenerio for the Pats would be to land the 3rd seed and have to face the Ravens in week one then on the road to Indy  and lastly Broncos/KC/Cinci, ----2nd seed is important for the Pats ---if They,(Pats), lose 1 more game the Pats need Cinci and the Colts to lose 1 more to secure the BYE!

    If that is how it ends up, I'll call this now ... Denver doesn't beat the Bengals or the Cheifs ... even at home. Not in cold/bad weather. Not against those defenses. I know it sounds crazy given taht Denver just beat KC twice ... but it changes.
