With the AFC and the NFC now wrapped up we move on to the chase for the Super Bowl!
In the NFC, I see both Wild Card teams, the Rams and the Vikings losing on that first weekend. I predict that the top seed will be the Saints, who finally can put something together and not get screwed over by bad calls and worse non-called penalties. I think this is the year they get it done but they will have to beat either the 49’ers or the Packers to get there.
My prediction is that the Saints will face the 49’ers in the NFC Championship game and this time, I think they get that victory and Drew Brees gets another title shot.
While there are teams getting better in the AFC, this conference is all about the Ravens and the Chiefs. Unless something unforeseen happens, this should easily be the conference teams playing for the Super Bowl. It should have been that way last but who would have predicted Ryan Tannehill?
I don’t see the Colts making the playoffs this year but it is going to be close as I think Rivers will make them a lot better. That being said, I also don’t think that Tannehill is going to have the magic he did last year so look for an early exit in week one. The Bills will play in the division round but they are not on the same level as the Ravens or the Chiefs so naturally, that is my conference predictions.
