NFL Playoffs Breakdown and Super Bowl Prediction

It's prediction time! This will be one of the most competitive NFL seasons that we have seen in a long time. When I did all of these previews and predictions it was very difficult to choose who would even get into the playoffs. I saw at least ten playoff-caliber teams in the AFC and 11 in the NFC. I had to narrow it down to the best six teams in each league and here is how I see both the AFC and NFC ending up at the end of the season.

AFC Standings

1. Houston Texans 13-3

2. New England Patriots 13-3

3. Baltimore Ravens 11-5

4. Denver Broncos 11-5

5. Pittsburgh Steelers 10-6

6. Buffalo Bills 10-6

The top half of the AFC is a pretty safe pick. The Texans get the tiebreaker over the Patriots because I predicted that Houston would win their head-to-head matchup with New England. The Steelers get the fifth seed over Buffalo because Pittsburgh will have a better record within the division. Buffalo is my surprise out of the AFC because I think their defense will greatly improve with the addition of Mario Williams and Mark Anderson.

NFC Standings

1. Green Bay Packers 13-3

2. San Francisco 49ers 13-3

3. Atlanta Falcons 11-5

4. Philadelphia Eagles 10-6

5. Chicago Bears 12-4

6. Detroit Lions 11-5

I know what most of you are probably thinking, I left out the defending champions. I didn't leave the Giants out because I think they aren't a good team, but I left them out because Detroit and Chicago made great improvements in the offseason. Philadelphia has one of the most talented rosters in the league and if Vick can stay healthy, this offense will score a lot of points.

Now I will go through each playoff game, round-by-round, all the way to my Super Bowl prediction. Sit tight and enjoy the ride.
