Rank the AFC contenders

Recommended Posts

Who do you have as the playoffs + seeding?

Current seeding:

1.  Steelers (7-2)
2.  Patriots (7-2
3.  Chiefs (6-3)
4.  Titans (6-3)
5.  Jags (6-3)
6.  Bills (5-4)

My prediction seeding:

1.  Patriots (12-4)
2.  Steelers (12-4)
3.  Chiefs (11-5)
4.  Jaguars (11-5)
5.  Titans (10-6)
6.  Ravens (9-7)

 

Jaguars:
@ CLE, @ARI, vs IND, vs SEA, vs HOU, @SF, @TEN 

Bills:
@LAC, @KC, vs NE, vs IND, vs MIA, @NE, @MIA

Ravens:
@GB, vs HOU, vs DET, @PIT, @CLE, vs IND, vs CIN

Raiders:
vs NE, vs DEN, vs NYG, vs DAL, @KC, @PHI, @LAC

Dolphins:
vs TB, @NE, vs DEN, vs NE, @BUF, @KC, vs BUF

 

Quick analysis:

-Jags have a cupcake schedule left.  I have them going 5-2 in that stretch, potentially better depending on how seattle does with Sherman out.   

-Titans have a similar schedule to the Jags but instead of SEA/CLE they have PIT/LAR which is obviously much harder (plus the head to head).  Have Titans at 10-6 but could see them at 9-7.  

-Bills will probably go 4-3 at best with that slate and up 9-7.  Ravens on the other hand have a much more favorable schedule.  

-I have the Ravens winning 4 of 5, maybe all 5 of GB, HOU, @CLE, IND, CIN and if they can squeeze out 1 win between DET/@PIT they are suddenly possibly10-6.  They've left little room for error, but Bills are going to get crushed by their schedule and might go 8-8 and Ravens can get in at 9-7 and still make the playoffs.

-Raiders win vs DEN, vs NYG, @LAC, lose vs NE, @KC, @PHI, and possibly can win vs DAL.  That is 3-4/4-3 and 7-9 or 8-8 which isn't going to be enough to get past the Ravens who I believe will endup at 9-7 or 10-6.  

-Dolphins don't have enough talent to keep up and three games against the Patriots (2x) and the Chiefs is going to be hard to get by.  Even if they split 2-2 between the four games of the Bills/Patriots and win 2 of 3 vs TB, vs DEN @KC - both optimistic scenarios, they're still 8-8 and miss the wildcard.

-I have the Patriots winning the head to head vs PIT but also dropping two games divisional games.   With the head to head tiebreaker, Patriots still get the #1 seed.

Jaguars:
@ CLE, @ARI, vs IND, vs SEA, vs HOU, @SF, @TEN  - giving them an 10-6

Bills:
@LAC, @KC, vs NE, vs IND, vs MIA, @NE, @MIA - 7-9

Ravens:
@GB, vs HOU, vs DET, @PIT, @CLE, vs IND, vs CIN - 9-7 

Raiders:
vs NE, vs DEN, vs NYG, vs DAL, @KC, @PHI, @LAC - 7-9

Dolphins:
vs TB, @NE, vs DEN, vs NE, @BUF, @KC, vs BUF - 6-10

Titans:

@PIT, @IND, vs HOU, @ARI, @SF, vs LAR, vs JAC - 11-5

 

Meaning, I am predicting; 

1. Pittsburgh

2. New England

3. Kansas City

4. Tennessee

5. Jacksonville

6. Baltimore

 

But Ten and Jac could go either way in that last game. What a crucial game that would be.

No Green means a win for that team.
