Nit-picking, but definitely won't have it mathematically wrapped up. SD won't be a pushover, neither will KC I'm thinking. I can see both in the 7-9 win range. Nine wins may be a bit high.
SD may not have the horsepower to be in the playoffs but I expect they'll be in the hunt (for a wildcard). McCoy and Whisenhunt running the offense, those guys are pretty well respected. The DC is the same so they have continuity there.
KC is much better roster-wise than their record last year, and Andy Reid is no slouch. Again they may not make the playoffs, but I expect they'll be in the hunt (for a wildcard).
