vanhooligan it is wrong b/c you have no1 from the AFC West, which is the Chargers, Raiders, Chiefs, and Broncos and u cant take off the Texans either it would have to be 1 of them 2-6 on your list and in the NFC you need to pick a team from the NFC West which is the Rams, Seahawks, 49ers, and Cardinals

Obviously it most likely won't go down that way, but it's just the route I'm feeling right now at week 3. It's really hard to predict how these sort of things will going, and I'll be excited to redo my predictions once the playoff seeds are completely sealed, even then I'm sure it won't go the way I predict.

I highly doubt Buccaneers will do as good as I say they will, and I highly doubt the Lions will either, but you never know both of them are doing pretty good for themselves right now.

Bro I know you may not want anyone in the AFC South in the playoffs but the Colts, but you left out that division in the seeds. You do know that at least one team from every division gets into the playoffs for each conference right? And then two additional teams in that conference also get in.

Can I just ask because this has bugged me for quite some time.
Draws in NFL games are quite rare and happen a couple every decade if that. But still possible.

What would happen if the Superbowl ended up a draw? (or any knockout playoff match for that matter)

Do they reshedule, play another 15 minutes or both win/lose?

There can be no tie in any playoff game. It will keep going until one team scores.

I like New England and Tampa Bay.

Both of those teams have deep receiving corps and depth at the Running Back position.
I like Tampa's Defense, I think they're the only team so far that would be able to make Aaron Rodgers struggle with press coverage. Green Bay needs to get something going with their running game.

The colts are looking pretty good right now. They won't go to a playoff but they don't look terrible. Tennessee? I was fairly happy with my playoff picks but Tenn might need to replace Oak, idk. They'll still have a good season though.

Amazing what you think will happen at the start of a season and change quickly.

I would just like to point out. My Jags prediction changed half way to 5-11 when the Colts started doing really badly :)

The rest I have no excuse for. Texans are good but not as good as thought (don't count them out though, they're still pretty good)

True. Titans did a lot better then I thought. But then you have to remember they lost a lot of there easy fixtures. We beat them on week 1 and the Colts beat then week 16. Games they should be winning. Having said that, you're banned. So at least I don't fail on behaving on an internet forum :)

I didn't do too bad

Yeah, except you picked the Eagles to go to the Superbowl...

Then again, I picked the Bucs. Although in my defense, I even said that happening was unlikely...plus I was a little bias in picking who won what (I picked both Baltimore and New England to lose early on, although there's a good chance that could happen), but you were very positive that Philly was going all the way. And I said "HELL NO", and what happened?
