Starting with NFC
It still looks like we'll end up with the #2 seed unless New Orleans wins out and we drop two games (we win tie-breakers) -- I see that as unlikely. So, the top 4 seeds go
1 - GB
2 - SF
3 - NO
4 - DAL
*5 - CHI
*6 - ATL
For the wild card slots, it's pretty much locked up. It looks like Detroit is done, with remaining ROAD games against New Orleans, Green Bay, and Oakland...and home games against MIN and San Diego...they will be lucky to finish 8-8. The Giants have murderers' row coming up (GB, @DAL, WAS, @NYJ, DAL) and they're already at 5 losses. So that leaves Chicago and Atlanta to take the two wild card slots -- if they end up with same record Chicago will get the #5 seed. I'll give Chicago the edge here and I expect Cutler to start the wild card game.
NFC Wild Card Round
ATL@NO - A third game between the two in 2011 - this is a pick 'em. Saints in a coin-flip.
CHI@DAL - With Cutler back, Chicago wins
CHI@GB - Will be close, but I'll give the edge to Green Bay
NO@SF - Saints aren't the same team on wet grass, and they're not that good against the run and terrible in short yardage run defense (and in open field tackling). Expect a good day from Frank the Tank. Niners win
NFC Championship - SF@GB: Will not discuss this matchup at this time.
AFC Playoff Picture - much murkier
NE Doesn't play anybody going forward, so they'll end up with the #1 seed. Baltimore plays a fairly soft remaining schedule too, so as long as they win the division they'll get the #2 seed. Houston is going to belly-flop into the playoffs at 11-5 with losses against either ATL, CIN, or TEN. I expect the Raiders to lose two more games against GB and someone else -- Denver will not catch them unless the Raiders collapse or Denver wins 4 out of 5 (they still have to play CHI and NE). PIT is no surprise as the #5 seed, and I expect Cincy to edge out the Jets, JUST BARELY, to make the playoffs. The Jets have to win out to make the playoffs because Cincy wins tie-breakers...one of Cincy's losses came out of conference against the 49ers.
AFC Wild Card Round
CIN@HOU - without a decent quarterback, Houston loses in the first round to the Bengals
PIT@OAK - Sorry raiders fans, I don't see how you beat the Steelers in January.
CIN@NE - Patriots should make quick work of them -- probably a blow-out.
PIT@BAL - Another great game, but I don't think the Ravens can beat the Steelers for a third time in the same season...very hard to do. Steelers win
AFC Championship game - PIT@NE. Steelers won this one earlier in the year, and I expect similar results.
Super Bowl. PIT or NE vs SF or GB. Most likely outcome is a Super Bowl XLV rematch.
