The 2011 NFL season was full of surprises, shockers and a few things we all expected. The Packers continued their hot streak and nearly went the entire season without a loss, and the Steelers and Ravens once again were their dominant selves.
On the flip side, the Detroit Lions finally became relevant again, the 49ers dominated on defense and Tim Tebow answered God's calling and put the Broncos in place to make the playoffs despite completing less than half of his passes.
As the season comes to a close and the playoff picture becomes clearer, I take a stab at predicting how the playoffs will turn out. Of course, we still don't know who the final teams in the tournament will be or who will play where, but that doesn't matter too much as the cream will rise to the top regardless.
Here we go.
