I contend that Balt was very good that year, we were just clearly better. Much like the Chiefs and Broncos. The Broncos are the better team and have really not had much of a problem scoring on the Chiefs. Outscoring them 62-45 in 2 games. I'd be surprised if the Chiefs would beat them in a 3rd game, especially in Denver.
Right, but how common is that (for one team to beat another thrice in one year)?

The team that won the first two is twice as likely to win the 3rd meeting. Since 1970, teams have met for the 3rd time in the playoffs 19 times. The 2-0 team has won 12 of them, with the 0-2 team winning only 7.

Chiefs are better defensively and Peyton loves to throw interceptions in the playoffs.

I would say that from a defensive standpoint, but not offensively. In general, teams that have beaten another team twice tend to win the 3rd meeting as well. Add in to that the Broncos at home. If it happens they'll be a 7 point favorite to win.

A decent enough difference for such a SSS.

I wouldn't Invest too much confidence in a mere 63% historical rate, but it's semi justifiable.

I think it's the Seahawks time. They'll beat the Broncos in the SB.

It's completely wide open in the AFC. Are you seriously telling me the Bengals, Colts, and Chiefs are championship caliber? The AFC is so meh this year that the previously 0-4 Steelers have a chance to get in.

Peyton is going to choke again. Brady and the Pats will follow suit.

The Patriots will do their usual fluff. Romp through the regular season, win a terrible AFC East division. Get a high seed then flame out in the Divisional/Championship game.

Do not be surprised if the 6 seed reps the AFC in the Super Bowl this year. Though I only see Baltimore running the table. They have the stuff and the coaching to do it. They're not pretty, but they're gutsy. If by some miracle Pittsburgh gets in, I can see them beating Cincinnati/Indianapolis, but losing to Denver/New England.

Nobody is going into Seattle and beating the Seahawks. They're repping the NFC in the Super Bowl. Simple as that.

only afc 6 seed team in the running that can run the table is san diego imo. they are playing good football and have been consistent ever since getting on track.

our offense is looking good, but the way our D is playing, that would be our downfall and prevent us from making much noise in the playoffs
