Default Playoff Parity: Your AFC Projection

I posted this in another thread.

Got me to thinking about the play off turnover that usually happens from year to year. Most specifically, the AFC.
Quote:
The NFL proudly trumpets its playoff parity, with an average of five new teams making the postseason annually since 2000. Last season, six teams made the playoffs that didn't in 2010 -- Texans, Broncos, Bengals, 49ers, Giants and Lions. With that in mind, which five 2011 playoff teams won't be back and who will replace them?
That was a couple of years back. In 2013, the AFC Play off teams were
  1. Denver Broncos
  2. New England Patriots
  3. Cincinnati Bengals
  4. Indianapolis Colts
  5. Kansas City Chiefs
  6. San Diego Chargers

Both Kansas City (2-14) & San Diego (7-9) missed the play-offs in 2012. The Chiefs had a pretty good year finishing 11-5, the Chargers got in at 9-7 after beating the Chiefs in week 17. Had they lost that game, then the Pittsburgh Steelers would have won the final Wild-Card slot at 8-8.

So... it's a little early, but the idea is to get your early outlook for the upcoming season, who do you think will be in & who will be out of the 2014 AFC play offs?

Granted that it's WAY too early...

I expect the Division Winners to be:

1. Patriots
2. Ravens
3. Colts
4. Broncos

I expect the Wild Card teams to be:

1. Bengals
2. Chargers

I expect KC to drop back. And I'm half-expecting the Bengals to fall all the way out of the playoffs as well.

I think if we split with the Colts we will push them to the very end. They get the Pats and Broncos this time around and I don't see them beating either.

Default Re: Playoff Parity: Your AFC Projection

My best guess at this point:

1. Denver
2. New England
3. Indianapolis
4. Baltimore
5. Kansas City
6. Cincinnati

7. San Diego
8. Pittsburgh
9. New York
10. Houston

Definitely feel that after next season we will start to see a serious contender again though. I really think O'Brien has a plan.

You've got us being better than
  • Clevland
  • Jacksonville
  • Oakland
  • Buffalo
  • Tennessee
  • Miami

You sure we can't be better than New York?

No way in Hell the Texans don't win the division. The cots are the most over rated team with the most over rated QB in the NFL.

1. Broncos
2. Patriots
3. Texans
4. Steelers
5. Dolphins
6. Chiefs

Texanstalk board erupts in fit of hate on Texans for winning crappy division because "it was supposed to take 3 to 4 years of rebuilding damnit".
