Incredibly, there are only six weeks to go in the NFL’s current season, although most teams have played only nine games so this makes some interesting early forecasting when it comes to the playoff picture.
AFC No. 1 Seed: New England Patriots (7-2) To say Bill Belichick’s club has turned things around following a mediocre 2-2 start is an understatement. The Pats have won five straight games by a combined score of 201-108, and quarterback Tom Brady has thrown 18 touchdown passes and just one interception over that span.
AFC No. 2 Seed: Denver Broncos (7-2) John Fox’s team bounced back from the debacle in Foxborough with a convincing win over the winless Oakland Raiders. The Broncos have limited three of their last five opponents to exactly 17 points, and Peyton Manning now leads the NFL with 29 touchdown passes.
AFC No. 3 Seed: Indianapolis Colts (6-3)
Andrew Luck and company had the week off and now prepare for a visit from the hot New England Patriots this Sunday night. The Colts’ third-year quarterback has already thrown a career-high 26 touchdown passes this season, and this club is 6-1 in its last seven games following that 0-2 start.
AFC No. 4 Seed: Cleveland Browns (6-3)
In a division where all four teams are at least two games above .500, the Browns have already totaled two more wins than they did all of last season. Cleveland’s defense is finally starting to come into its own after a shaky start, and quarterback Brian Hoyer has been steady for the most part.
NFC No. 1 Seed: Arizona Cardinals (8-1)
They’ll have to go the rest of the way without veteran quarterback Carson Palmer, but Bruce Arians’ resourceful team has won five straight games and continues to find ways to get it done. In Sunday’s 31-14 win over the Rams, the defense totaled six sacks and returned a pair of takeaways for scores.
NFC No. 2 Seed: Detroit Lions (7-2)
A year ago, the Lions lost six of their last seven games following a 6-3 start. This season, they have already equaled 2013’s victory total, and with stars such as Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush healthy again, this club could be ready to take it to another level on offense. Defensively, there’s been no better team in the league.
NFC No. 3 Seed: Philadelphia Eagles (7-2)
No Nick Foles, no problem for Chip Kelly’s club. The team’s 45-21 Monday night win over the Carolina Panthers saw all three phases of the Birds reach the end zone. They remain a smidge ahead of the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East.
NFC No. 4 Seed: New Orleans Saints (4-5)
So much for dome-field advantage? The Saints saw the 49ers interfere with their postseason plans Sunday by snapping the club’s 11-game home winning streak. And it was not a good afternoon for quarterback Drew Brees, who committed all three of the team’s turnovers in the 27-24 overtime loss to San Francisco.
At this stage of the season, any team with eight or more losses is basically playing for next season. In the AFC, the Oakland Raiders (0-9), Jacksonville Jaguars (1-9) and New York Jets (2-8) all fit the aforementioned criteria. On the other hand, in the NFC there are five teams in the conference with 3-6 marks and another, the Carolina Panthers, with a 3-6-1 record. While there’s still time for most of those clubs to still make a playoff run, especially the Panthers and 3-6 Atlanta Falcons in the woeful NFC South, we are not nearly as optimistic when it comes to the 3-6 Chicago Bears and St. Louis Rams. source: bleacherreport.com/
