So its getting to that time of the year agian when questions are asked about who is going to make the playoffs.Three teams have clinched their place,
and two have pretty much clinched a home field divisional spot. So, Indianapolis and New Orleans will play at home, and Minnesota will too, barring a
complete FUBAR for the rest of their season which I cant see happening.
There are a number of teams in contention for the remaining positions, some with better schedules and chances than others. So considering this Ive
come up with my predictions for the playoffs (I may have got the format wrong, so let me know if I have
Home team first
Wild Card Round
Cincinnati v Baltimore
New England vs Denver
Philadelphia vs NY Giants
Arizona vs Greenbay
Indianapolis vs New England
San Diego vs Cincinnati
New Orleans vs Greenbay
Minnesota vs Philadelphia
Indianapolis vs San Diego
New Orleans vs Minnesota (tough one between the Viking and Eagles as 2 experienced QB's, but Favre is too good I think, will be close game)
Indianapolis vs New Orleans
Ravens have the best chance of any team to make the wildcard round with Chicago, Pittsburgh and Oakland coming up, and the Jags have the toughest
which I think will see them just miss out. I think the Dolphins will have the same number of wins as Baltimore but still just miss out, with New
England winning the Division. Cincinnati should comfortably make it, as will the Chargers.
On the other side, I think Greenbay will storm through and win their last 3 games making it 8 straight. Arizona will win the division on 10-6 record,
and the Giants will just scrape in ahead of Dallas, who arent consitent enough. Atlanta will crash and burn (just like my fantasy team) and lose their
next three. There could be an upset if the Eagles and Vikings meet, but its too close to call. I think the Packers will continue there streak into the
playoffs, accounting for the Cardinals, but that will end against the Saints.
Saints and Colts will fight it out in the superbowl, both with perfect records (unless they both decide to rest players to prevent injury), and
hopefully the Saints will win it
So thats mine
Whats everyone elses predictions so far?
