Over the last three seasons a friend and I have been picking playoff brackets during the preseason, and usually we've been 50-60% accurate.
Unfortunately, this season's projection looks A LOT like last seasons, so I've decided to throw caution to the wind and pick a couple of longshots.
I'm betting on the Colts to slip, the Ravens to show some serious improvement, and the Patriots to finally be unseated (which as a Raiders fan, I've
been praying for since 2001). I consider my AFC picks and superbowl pick to be ludicrous gambles, but picking a bracket that looks nearly identical to
last years is simply not that fun. Besides, if this comes out right, I can deny that I ever doubted myself and look pretty dang smart
Here's my playoff bracket. Division champs listed first, wildcards listed second in these matchups.
