I don't think it takes a brain surgeon to work it out, as most have mentioned, Seahawks and Broncos are pretty much locks.
I was never sold on Broncos last season because of Manning's arm. But, you can see he is close to 100% now and with the addition of Welker, the offense has become even more potent under Peyton's leadership. Their D is tough and when you add their special teams aka Holliday, they are just plain good in all phases of the game. Yes, Manning's playoff chocking has been well-documented, but I just feel their talent can take them over the edge. As far as the AFC is concerned, the Pats is probably their only challenger.It will be an interesting game when they play in Foxborough in week 12.
As for the Seahawks, they might have less talent than the Broncos on the offensive side of the ball, but they have a reliable formula. They play hard D especially their secondary and they always cause turnovers to get the ball back to Wilson. As for offense, they just pound the ball with Wilson making strategic throws. You might say the Texans gave them the win, but no matter how tough the situation is, it seems they always have the resolve to still pull out with a W.
As for the 9ers, we need to get all our WRs back. We MUST beat the Seahawks in week 14 at home just to prove to ourselves we can beat them before the playoffs. We will lose NFC West, but the wildcard spot is not automatic, so we will have to keep trucking in every game. Then, our fate will lie in getting a W in CLink in the Divisional Playoff game. That is why I said it is paramount we beat them at the Stick to make sure we are confident enough before we go up there for the slug fest.
