Default Playoff teams....5 in / 5 out

5 is usually the magic number year over year. Give me your predictions.

OUT:
KC. SD should win the division rather easily and no AFC WC
OAK. See above
HOU. Sub .500
ATL. NFC South is always crazy + SB hangover + losing KS
NYG. I wouldn't be surprised to see them swing from 11-5 to 5-11

IN:
SD. 11-5 wins division easy
TEN. MM takes the next step
CIN. Cake schedule outside of GB & Pitt
NO. Just a hunch between them & TB
AZ. Best team in the division. (Seahawks make PO's again as WC though)

It's very probable, but I don't think anything is easy in the AFC West.

SD errrr LA can be very dangerous if they get the right coach and avoid a billion injuries.

AFC West is a legit toss up 1-4.

KC/Oak both probably wont go 12-4 again.

Lions, Dolphins, Cowboys, one of KC/Oak i think drops out.

NE, Pit, one of KC/Oak, Hou, Atl, Sea, GB, NYG i think all stay in. Dallas could still get in but tough schedule.

I agree about the Titans. Keep an eye on Mariota. He now has Decker, plenty of other weapons -- and an offensive line to protect him.

Hat, your predictiins are normally 180 off so I will say SD isn't making the playoffs and for sure wont win the AFC West. Titans are rising up and I think can take the division.

Kyle Sloter? I know ATL had him in for a workout and there's still time for them to sign him and save their franchise.

But Sloter is KS1.

HAHAAHA... Denver 19-0

Has one of the best defenses in the NFL and an offense that will be much better than the 9-7 team last year but you don't see how they win more than 5 games

Well, we went 9-7 with a worse team last year.

Not saying we'll win SB or anything but 5 wins is a stretch although if there's ever a year to suck....

I think Denver can get to ten wins. The angst over the backup QB position is justified simply on principle, but I am a Siemian optimist and the offense's performance this year was always gonna be about him. I feel like he'll surprise us in a good way.

This forecast has a wide confidence interval, though, due to the wtfpwn SOS. Five wins wouldn't shock me
