NFL Playoff Predictions: Top 5 Overachieving Teams Sure to Choke in the Playoffs

The NFL playoff picture is becoming much clearer as we enter the last three weeks of the regular season. The overall favorite is obviously the undefeated Green Bay Packers, but there are others that are getting Super Bowl talk.

The road to the Super Bowl on the AFC side is pretty much wide open with the normal favorite Indianapolis Colts being 0-13 right now. There’s not a clear-cut favorite with the rest of the teams due to all having very visible weaknesses.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens are duking it out for the AFC North crown and the loser will most likely be getting the fifth seed.

The New England Patriots are getting lots of talk, but their defense is struggling so bad they may get ousted early.

The Houston Texans have clinched their first playoff berth in franchise history, but they’re going forward with a third string quarterback.

If you want to look on the NFC side of things, the New Orleans Saints seem to be the biggest threat to the Packers, but they struggle to play outdoors.

The two wild card spots will be won by teams backing their way into the playoffs instead of making headway and gaining momentum going into the playoffs.

This is really the first year in a long time that there’s really no clear cut Super Bowl matchup looming. This slideshow though is a list of the top five teams that really have no shot at the big game in Indianapolis.
