The Way Too Early 2019 Playoff Prediction Thread

Alright, just for funzies at this point because it's the off-season and we need something else to debate about... Who do you think will make the playoffs in 2019 and why? I'll start with my picks:

AFC:

Patriots - No explanation needed. They have the best coach, quarterback, and probably overall roster in the division.

Colts - Rebuilt OL, Luck at the helm, and a defense on the rise should propel them to another playoff berth.

Browns - One of the most talented rosters in the league hands down w/ an All-Star caliber QB at the helm and many playmakers on defense.

Chargers - Stability at QB, top-flight arsenal of offensive weapons, and strong set of pass rushers on defense.

Texans - Simply a solid team all around and Watson will have another year under his belt.

Bills - I think Josh Allen takes a big step this year. Zay Jones is poised for a breakout year, and Robert Foster is an emerging potential star who had a fantastic rookie year, especially late.


NFC:
Rams - They have tons of talent on both sides of the ball still.

Saints - See above.

Cowboys - Hate to say it, but it seems like they are set to make another run.

Packers - Hate to say it again.. but it seems like they may have fixed some of their issues.

Eagles - Feel like it'll be close, but they have to talent to make it.

49ers - Homer pick here. Feel like our new weapons, healthy stable of runners, addition of pass rushers, a couple corners, a couple replacements at LB, and the return of Jimmy will push us to a winning record.
9ers will win the west. You heard it here first.

Talent wins right?

Miami - 1

AFC North:
Pittsburgh - 5
Cincinnati - 5
Baltimore - 3
Cleveland - 3

Tampa Bay & NYJ would be the only surprises here (and no Pats).

I agree. Also, I got them sending BB and Brady into retirement after they whip them in the SB.

Shanny is licking his chops right now (all his shiny toys). If healthy, this could be the best offense this year, especially if Hurd clicks right away #NightmareMismatch. The D has me a little worried and so does the depth on oline, but again, if we stay healthy #GameOver for BB and Brady and the rest of the league

AFC:
Patriots
Steelers
Colts
Chiefs

Wildcard: Chargers, Ravens

NFC:

Lambs
Saints
Packers
Eagles

Wildcard: Cowboys, Bears
