The teams with a bye have a definite advantage (have to win only three playoff games vs. four games for the teams that play this weekend). However, that is no guarantee, with last year's Steelers being a perfect example (#6 seed). I think this is a very tough playoff year to predict. I'll try, but I wouldn't want to bet much money on my picks. NFC: Eagles over Giants Seahawks over Cowboys Eagles over Saints Bears over Seahawks Eagles over Bears AFC: Colts over Chiefs Patriots over Jets Chargers over Patriots Ravens over Colts Chargers over Ravens Super Bowl: Chargers over Eagles I could easily see Dallas or KC win this weekend, though, and the Bears get knocked out next weekend. I think San Diego, Baltimore and New England all have very good chances of winning it all. I also think either Chicago or New Orleans could easily win the NFC.
