The NFL preseason begins in less than 24 hours, so why not make those early playoff predictions? Normally, these predictions look legitimate when they are made, but we can all look back on them and laugh at the end of the season. Not many people guessed the Chiefs and the Seahawks would make it last season, and there will probably be a couple more surprises this year.
In my opinion, the majority of the playoff teams from last year will return this season. The teams with serious shots at winning it all, such as the Steelers, Patriots, Colts, Packers and Eagles, should all return once this season concludes. There are three teams, though, that I do believe will be watching the playoffs this year instead of playing in them.
