I predict it will be Rogers vs Brady. Can you even imagine the hype machine for that game?
Let's face it: nobody but NE in the AFC is up to it. Pittsburgh has never beaten Brady that I remember. Who else is there? KC is due to win 12 games and then lose their 1st playoff game, unless it's against Houston. NE will get their usual KC/HOU bye week and be in the AFC Title game without breaking a sweat.
The NFC is a lot more interesting. My top contenders for the NFC SB berth are:
#1 Green Bay: who are always close and got better on offense. The way they get hot I could see them getting back. If they are red hot going into the SB I could see Rogers winning his 2nd ring. He has the "it" factor that few have.
#2 Dallas: A young stacked team that might finally break through.
#3 Atlanta: A NE/ATL rematch where Atlanta wins would be cool, and I might ease up on Ryan a bit. But we all know that isn't going to happen.
#4 Seattle: They might have one more run in them before the wheels fall off.
Green Bay, as someone else said in this thread, their defense always seems to let them down.
Dallas, i dunno. Prescott will have to prove he is more than a flash in the pan. Sophomoric years can be tough.
Atlanta, again i dunno. Ryan will have to prove he can do it without Shannahan. not sure he can.
Seattle, they just seem to be missing something since Russell Wilson signed that mega contract.
with all that being said, someone has to go from the NFC and short of a surprise team, these are definitely the best in that conference.
as for the AFC, i think NE is on a mission this year. a 19-0 mission.
