Yeah, it's about that time. Yup, I'm making my NFL Playoff predictions RIGHT NOW.
The AFC East: It's pretty obvious that the Patriots win this division. Tom Brady's gonna come back with a vengeance and throw for about 30-33 TDs this year. Fred Taylor could actually be a big help if he's healthy as well. The defense is a little younger, but lacking much in the secondary. Still, I see this team possibly going 14-2.
The AFC North: Steelers win. Another obvious pick in my eyes. The Steelers just have too much on defense. Ben Roethlisberger has the cut out the extracurricular stuff, though. Willie Parker could have a 1,000-yard season. The same goes for Santonio Holmes, too. Steelers, I pick them going 12-4.
The AFC South: Brace yourselves. The winner of the divison will be...................The Houston Texans. That's right, you heard me. Houston WILL WIN the South. I see Matt Schaub going to the Pro Bowl this year and Andre Johnson joining him, as well as about 3 or 4 other Texans. Don't forget Steve Slaton at RB along with a young, tough defense. Houston will go 11-5 this year.
The AFC West: Everybody expects the San Diego Chargers to easily win this division with their "7 Bye Weeks" right? Right? WRONG!!!!! The Kansas City Chiefs shock everyone to win this weak division. I think Matt Cassel has something to prove, as does Larry Johnson the oft-spoken and oft-received runningback. Chiefs will go 8-8 this year.
Wild Card #1: This wild card will be picked by the Cincinnati Bengals. Can you believe it? The Bengals and Texans going to the playoff contenders? Yeah, I can. Carson Palmer is turning out to be the world's biggest sleeper in fantasy leagues and Chad 8-5's gonna get it done too. The defense looks cupcake, but it's a lot better than the Browns, I can at least say that. Look for the Bengals to go 10-6.
Wild Card #2: This berth prediction can get a lot of people mad at me, but I think the Jaguars win this berth. A football plagued by injuries, an Offensive line in shambles, and Garrard seeing the dirt every 15 seconds, I have to be crazy. No, not crazy, just a Jags fan. Anyways, I think the defense comes back to the form it was a few years back, and Mo Jones-Drew rushes for about 1,500 yards. So, with that, I have the Jags going 10-6 or 9-7 with many tiebreak wins.
