Notice that their cakewalks normally involve them as the 1 seed though. At that point, odds are always in your favor. Rodgers' Packers have been the 1 seed once in his entire career. That's almost unthinkable. 

yeah, they had the 5th easiest schedule...

Conservative coaches who tighten up when in big moments.  Schottenheimer first .. now Andy Reid.

Awfully easy to consistently be the one seed when your conference is a tire fire and you play powerhouse teams like the Colts and Texans on your way to an easy *** conference championship game. AFC has been top heavy for a long time. Compare that to the actually challenging NFC over the years.

Andy reminds me a lot of Mac, both in coaching habits as well as results.

Yea, it probably has nothing to do with the fact that the Pats are just consistently a good team that takes care of business in the regular season year after year. The NFC is a harder conference no doubt but let's not act like GB would do what NE does year in and year out if we switched places with them in the AFC East, because we wouldnt.

Hard to say. Match the success, probably not. Would bet big money they make at least two more Super Bowls playing in that conference. 

Likewise, not sure the Pats have the same success being in the NFC the last decade either. Much greater teams in the playoffs over that time compared to the AFC.

Man the Rams front 4 gets after it. Feels weird to watch a team that actually forces a QB to move around back there.

How come I never heard anybody say this before (?) and how can this not be a "fire the guy" stat?

"The Chiefs are now 1-11 in their last 12 playoff games. They've lost six straight in the postseason at Arrowhead, four by four points or less"

Because they did have that conversation when Schottenheimer was coach.  And again when they had Vermeil.  Andy Reid is the coach that led them to their first victory in like 20 years against the Texans... was that last season or two seasons ago?
