With only five or six games left, only one team so far is guaranteed a playoff berth (Philly). The following are my predictions of who will make the playoffs, in order of best record first:

AFC:
New England – AFC EAST CHAMP (bye)
Pittsburgh – AFC NORTH CHAMP (bye)
San Diego – AFC WEST CHAMP
Indy – AFC SOUTH CHAMP
Denver (Wild Card)
NY Jets (Wild Card)

Any questions?

    Detroit?!?!

  • http://theugliestamerican.blogspot.com/ andy marsh

    3 teams from the NFC north? I’m kinda hoping my Giants will PULL THEIR HEADS OUT sometime this month!

  • http://www.roblogpolitics.blogspot.com RJ

    “Detroit?!?!”

    Good question! :)

    Well, they are 4-7. And that’s not a very good record…

    BUT, after SL loses to GB tonight (just watch and see!), the best record any team will have for the final NFC wild card slot will be 5-6.

    The 2 teams with 5-6 records at this point will be the NY Giants and SL. The Lions beat the Giants, so the tie-breaker (if there is a tie and the end of the season) goes to Detroit.

    And I fully expect SL to collapse.

    So, Detroit, if they win all but one of their remaining games, goes 8-8. And if they end up tied with Arizona, they win the tie-breaker there as well (Detroit beat Arizona earlier this season).

    So, the big question is, can Detroit go 4-1 for the remainder of their schedule? Well, they HAVE lost their last 5 games. BUT in that stretch, they nearly beat quality teams like Minnesota (on the road) and Jacksonville (they lost in OT). And they have beaten the 9-2 Atlanta Falcons already.

    So. If Detroit goes 4-1 the rest of the season, I think I will be proven correct.

    And if they don’t? I expect Arizona to grab that final Wild Card berth…

    (BTW, I am an almost-religious Lions fan. Not that this would BIAS me in any way…) ;-)

    “3 teams from the NFC north?”

    Why not? The NFC is weak this year… :)

    “I’m kinda hoping my Giants will PULL THEIR HEADS OUT sometime this month!”

    With Eli Manning as QB? Not this season… :-/

  • http://theugliestamerican.blogspot.com/ andy marsh

    Eli did look pretty bad yesterday. No number of beers could make him look better! I tried! But I’m hoping he’s gonna get better…I mean, he can’t get much worse!

  • http://www.roblogpolitics.blogspot.com RJ

    Heh…

    Well, he IS a rookie. And he’s under a great deal of pressure, being in the NY media market.

    I expect he’ll be a fine NFL QB…in two or three years.

    For now, he’s meat.

  • http://theugliestamerican.blogspot.com/ andy marsh

    you’re trying to hurt my feelings…you know how sensitive I am!

    I think if his receivers start catching the ball he’ll be doing a lot better. Although, Philly’s d-backs sure didn’t seem to have a hard time holding on to them!

  • http://www.roblogpolitics.blogspot.com RJ

    “you’re trying to hurt my feelings…you know how sensitive I am!”

    Heh.

    Not at all! You know I like you, AM. I just offer the most blunt and pithy wisdom I can, and let the cyber-chips fall where they may…

    “I think if his receivers start catching the ball he’ll be doing a lot better. Although, Philly’s d-backs sure didn’t seem to have a hard time holding on to them!”

    Heh…

    The learning curve is quite steep for a rookie QB. Like I said, give him another 32 starts or so…

    It wasn’t for Rothlisberger!

  • http://www.roblogpolitics.blogspot.com RJ

    Big “R” will be a non-entity in 2-3 years. Mark my words…

  • http://theugliestamerican.blogspot.com/ andy marsh

    Seriously? What makes you say that? He seems to be doing a helluva job right now!

  • http://www.roblogpolitics.blogspot.com RJ

    “He seems to be doing a helluva job right now!”

    He is. Right now.

    I could be wrong, and would love to be proven wrong, but he seems like a freshman fluke to me.

    Maybe he’s another Bradshaw. But I doubt it.

    I still think Denver will win the AFC West. If they win next week, they’ll have swept SD, which means they’ll have the inside track. Plus, I think SD is still a fluke of a team.

  • MCH

    Here’s my prediction for the Detroit Lion’s final season record: 6 wins, 10 losses.

    Heh…

    Well, no one is PERFECT! I never claimed to be psychic or anything.

    But my track record isn’t half bad. I got the election mostly right. I got the NBA playoffs mostly right. My prognostications are more credible than most, IMNSHO… ;)

    “I still think Denver will win the AFC West. If they win next week, they’ll have swept SD, which means they’ll have the inside track. Plus, I think SD is still a fluke of a team.”

    Quite possible. But Denver blew it AT HOME against Oakland last week. And Brees is having a super year thus far.

    I’m sticking with the Bolts…

    “Here’s my prediction for the Detroit Lion’s final season record: 6 wins, 10 losses.”

    They are currently 4-7. 6-10 is possible, but I feel 7-9 is more likely. And as a die-hard fan, I’ll go out on a limb and say they go 8-8 and make the playoffs by the skin of their collective teeth. ;)

    – Bobby Elliott, 11/29/04

    I predict that Ben Roethlisburger, on the way to proving Bobby Elliott the fool that he is, will (barring injuries)turn out to be a marquee NFL quarterback for 10-12 years and – if he stays with the Steelers – win nine or 10 Division titles and two or three Super Bowls.

    And no matter how many Division and Super Bowl championships Roethlisberger wins, the number will be that many more than any Lions QB during the same tenure.

    FINAL 2004 RECORD:
    Detroit Lions – 6 wins, 10 losses

  • http://www.roblogpolitics.blogspot.com RJ

    Great pick in the Buffalo – Pittsburgh game last week, MCH…

    Since you’re follwing these threads so closely, one wonders why you never bothered to actually PICK a full set of 16 games…
