10. ENOUGH WITH THE QUESTIONS, PRICE — WHO’S GOING TO MAKE THE POSTSEASON?
In the AFC, it’s going to be: 1) Broncos. 2) Patriots 3) Colts 4) Bengals 5) Chiefs 6) Ravens.
In the NFC, it’s going to be: 1) Seahawks 2) Saints 3) Cowboys 4) Lions 5) Panthers 6) Niners.
Who's favored to win it all?
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.
