Seahawks. 1st seed and nobody's gonna beat them at home.

No AFC team really impresses me. Choke artist manning or Patriots* without their best weapons are the frontrunners, but neither seem dominant. Chiefs have a good defense, but in the past 2 decades, the 'defense wins championships' thing no longer applies. In fact the only teams I've seen that won off defense alone were the 2000 ravens and 2002 bucs. Offense / elite qb play wins championships now, and that's what the chiefs lack.

I could see a case for carolina though, they also are very tough and if any team can go to seattle and leave with a W, they have the best chance.

Seattle is the frontrunner, but I think it's wide open on who wins the SB this year. There are a few teams that are going to get in that I would be shocked to see win. The Pats come to mind, and at this point I don't know if Cincy is going to make it. Those two teams look incredibly weak right now.

Seahawks should win the NFC and Denver should win the AFC, which means at least one of them should not.

I think the 49ers will win because they hate the Seahawks enough to do whatever it takes to knock out Russell Wilson if they play again

Probably Baltimore. Until the Steelers rise up to stop them, they'll just run roughshod over the league. :P

The Patriots. Yeah, I said it. Sue me.

Seattle is going to be tough to beat and I'm not sure Cam has the ability to turn on the offense when he'll need to in the playoffs.

Chiefs just seem...off. Like there's something major wrong with them that I can't see that'll get exposed in the playoffs. Pats are a wash without Pushoff Gronkowski. Bengals and Ravens won't be able to string enough playoff luck-up wins together to make it. So, probably Denver by default unless the Chiefs pull a rabbit out of the hats.

Elite QBs aren't always elite - they are just elite when they have to be

It pains me to say this, but UniBrow had the statistically best postseason for a QB since Montana in the playoffs last season
