I like the Detroit Lions and the Atlanta Falcons to grab the AFC Wild Card spots. Detroit plays stellar defense and gets dominant play from receiver Calvin Johnson. Quarterback Matthew Stafford has been an excellent facilitator and playmaker, as well.
The Lions need to find something of a running game for this to come to fruition, but Jahvid Best's return should help alleviate that problem.
The defense continues to play at a high level behind Ndamukong Suh, and if this team can keep from imploding down the stretch, the wild card is theirs to lose.
Atlanta is also playing pretty well lately and looks to be the most talented team outside of the Eagles and the Cowboys, both of which have struggled this season.
Matt Ryan, Michael Turner, Roddy White and Julio Jones should be able to secure them the other spot.
Other possibilities: Chicago Bears, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
