At the beginning of the NFL season, I made some personal picks of who would make the playoffs. These were the teams I thought would be strong and win their divisions. Well, my Superbowl pick was one ESPN analysts most disappointing team- the Jacksonville Jaguars. This was for good reason as the Jag’s offensive line was injured the majority out the season. Therefore their ground game, which is the team’s strength was never at full strength. I’ll keep my day job.
The playoffs matches up like this:
Falcons @ Cardinals
Eagles @ Vikings
Byes- Giants and Panthers
Colts @ Chargers
Ravens @ Dolphins
Byes- Titans and Steelers
To my credit, 5 of my 8 picks from the beginning of the season did make it to the post-season. The short story in my opinion for each conference is this– the AFC is defense heavy and should be decided with low scoring games, whereas the NFC will be more fun to watch with more explosive offenses.
Superbowl Prediction- Panthers over Steelers
