NFL Playoff Preview 2016: An Early Guide to This Year's Postseason
David Richard/Associated Press

The playoffs are here as the 2015 NFL regular season came to a close Sunday night. We thought we had a good grasp on what the seeding and matchups would be, but several key contests went awry for playoff teams. We’ve got your updated early guide to this year’s postseason picture.

While the AFC is struggling with key injuries, the NFC has six teams that have shown Super Bowl potential. Headlined by the Carolina Panthers as the No. 1 overall seed, the NFC’s Wild Card Weekend should be filled with great matchups. The recent surge from Seattle and Washington mean we could see some upsets brewing.

As mentioned, the AFC’s outlook is filled with teams limping into the playoffs. Only Kansas City and Houston have been playing especially well down the stretch. The two wild-card teams, Pittsburgh and Kansas City, might be the best overall teams left.

Let’s jump in and map everything out for the 2016 playoffs. Leave your predictions for what will happen in the comments section below.
