AFC playoff predictions/breakdown

I did an NFC already. I wasn't gonna do this, but I decided to do it anyways despite the critics. Who will represent the AFC in the Super Bowl? Been pretty accurate these last few years. Well at least not my preseason predictions, but than again whose is?

I'll state why or why not I'm picking this team to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl.

Jacksonville Jaguars- Still have a shot to make the playoffs, but I'm not picking them to get in. With their starting quarterback David Garrard now on IR ending his season I highly doubt they will even win their last regular season game with Trent Edwards.

New York Jets- The media's pick coming into the season was the Jets. All the talking with the HBO show to the foot fetish. All the talking has come to an end. Now you got to prove it. New York Jets winning the Super Bowl talk all year. Now all the talking will be on the field. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Chiefs upset the Jets. I'm actually picking the Chiefs to upset the Jets. Jets offense isn't consistant enough in my opinion. Sanchez isn't great at all. Not even good. LOL! Running game is lost. Defense wouldn't be able to handle an offense like the Colts or Patriots. I doubt they will represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. Again prove me wrong.

Baltimore Ravens-To me the Baltimore Ravens are one of the most under-rated football teams in the league. Yes they were one of the media's so-called picked, but they don't get the respect they deserve. They are a great football team. Great defense! Offense will need to step up for them to get to the Super Bowl. I don't think their passing game is as good as one thought. Running game was thrown out of the window where Rice wasn't getting his carry's. I think their offense will cost their team a chance to be in the Super Bowl. It will come down to the passing game in the end. Ravens could definately surprise us though. They are in my opinion the 3rd best team in the league right now.

Indianapolis Colts-I like their chances of making the playoffs and winning their division. Despite the teams struggles on offense due to injuries I think they are still a bit of a force in the AFC. They would give the Pats a battle if they were to face again. Just an opinion of course. I think the injuries will haunt them and lead them out of the playoffs.

Kansas City Chiefs-Some people would call this team a darkhorse. This team surprised us all. New coaching staff really helped revive this franchise. Matt Cassel has done a great job at quarterback. The running game is the true leader of this football team o. Charles along with Thomas Jones have made a force in that department. That is one of the reasons why I like them to take down the Jets. They are pretty good on special teams as well. Not that bad in the passing game either. I like their chances. Wouldn't be surprised if they did lose in the wildcard round like everyone expect. Wouldn't be surprised if they won in the wildcard round either. Great season o.

Pittsburgh Steelers-One of the reasons I wasn't gonna create one of these for the AFC because I would be criticized cuz of my biased towards my favorite football team the Pittsburgh Steelers. I like their chances to be honest. To me they are one of the top 2 teams in the league right now. Best defense in the league always helps come playoff time. Great wideouts with one emerging Mike Wallace. Running game is pretty good. Mendenhall is in the top 10 in that category. I think the Steelers will represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. They have all the key components to get it done.

New England Patriots-Media's pick, majority of everyones pick. Of course they have a strong passing game. Under-rated defense among other qualities. Have a great quarterback who more likely than not will be named the MVP this year. They have one of the most praised head coaches in the NFL on their side as well along with home field advantage. You gotta think with all those advantages you gotta pick this football team. Any team can win on any given day. That's why we play the game. That's why I'm not picking the Patriots.

This is my breakdown of all of the AFC teams. Why and why not I pick them. So on and so forth. Tell me what ya think. Steelers will represent the AFC in the Super Bowl.

Win or stay home! Colts vs Jags preview:

As we all know the Colts have been one of the most successful frachises in the league in the last decade. Especially in the regular season. In the top 3 in winning percentage. That is very impressive if I do say so my self. The Colts are in a rough position right now. Ever since the loss to the Patriots in November they have not been the same. Injuries of course is a factor in all this. Peyton isn't playing all that well either. Interceptions has risen a lot in just these past few weeks. This game will be win or stay home for the Colts. That is how I'm looking at it anyway.

I'm surprised by the Jags play this season. Yes they won 7 games last year in last place I believe, but to be leading the AFC South. I had them at number 4 going in. Colts/Texans/Titans have not lived up to their expectations. I expected another 12 win season for the Colts. This will be the first season they havn't had 12 wins in I believe 8 years. That is impressive still, but the Colts have had losses in their division. 1 to start off the year vs the Texans. Of course they bounced back, but their season hasn't been successful at any means. The team won 14 games last year. Had a shot at a perfect season. In the Super Bowl last year as well. Ranked number 1 heading into the season over the defending champs.

Jags won the previous matchup vs the Colts earlier in the season thanks to the 3rd longest field goal ever made in the NFL set at 59 yarder. That just wowed me. I never expected the Colts to lose to a team like the Jags. Lucky for them they are still in this thing. This game will make or break their playoff hopes. If they lost this football game they do not deserve in the playoffs. No offense to Peyton Manning. He is a great quarterback and he will be listed as one of the best all-time when he is done. If the Jags sweep ya you just don't deserve in the playoffs. Don't know the last time they havn't made the playoffs. Again I'm still considered a teen so apoligies. I was playing outside on Sundays. Anyways good luck to both teams. If Jags win they definately deserve in the playoffs. This game is considered to me for the Colts anyways win or stay home. Surprised??SurprisedDon't be......STAY JEALOUS!!Cool
