Baltimore, Houston, and New England are the top teams.
I absolutely think Denver and San Diego are pretty well matched as far as talent goes, but there is something to be said about emotions in this game. Epic Monday Nighters like that can sink teams and raise others (2002 Raiders/Broncos, anyone?). Everyone else kinda washes together. The Browns are much stronger than their record indicates. The Chiefs, who actually have a lot of talent all over the field, are somehow just awful. Crennel-effect. The Raiders are better than their record indicates as well, but they're still the Raiders. I got Miami and Tennessee as the current dark horses to make the playoffs.
