I agree that the Bengals are in serious trouble with their remaining schedule. Ravens should be a lock. I can't put my Bills in there yet though because of that week 17 game at New England. I could see the Bengals losing out but still getting in because all three of San Diego, K.C. and Buffalo will lose at least one game each. If one of those three can win out, they will be the team to take the final wild card.

In the NFC I will say Dallas is the team that does not make it. I think Green Bay wins out and takes the North. Philly wins out and takes the East. Detroit and Dallas each drop one more game but Detroit gets in over Dallas with a better conference record 9-3 vs. 8-4.

That poll didn't make sense.

Was I supposed to pick 6 total between the AFC & NFC??

Yeah, it wasn't clear to me either. But based on the OP's vote count, I went with 3 AFC + 6 NFC. Even though Arizona already clinched a spot.

I think the Chargers and Bengals are in trouble due to their schedule. Bills will have to beat NE when NE wants to protect their #1 seed, not gonna happen. Too little too late for them. In the NFC, I think the Eagles are in trouble with Sanchez at the helm. And the Cardinals are too with their 3rd string QB, but they'll at least make the playoffs.

I went 3 AFC (all North teams. Even though I think Cinci will lose twice, I also see San Fran beating San Diego & Pitt beating KC, so Cinci will probably get in by default and then lose by 40 to the Colts in the Wildcard round)
I went with 5 for the NFC (Cards [already win], Seahawks [basically already in], Packers, Eagles and yes Cowboys, sorry Lions). It's never easy with the Lions, and they have 2 straight on the road to end it. Who would you rather have in a win or go home game?? Mike McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers at home or Matt Stafford and an emotionless Jim Caldwell on the road?? Yah, I thought so!

I'm not up on what is really happening behind the scenes with the AFC. Pats, Broncos, Colts, Steelers, Ravens and between Chiefs or Bengals, I don't know. Bills making it? They might be too far back and needing too much help.

NFC is going to be Cards, Seahawks, Packers, Saints, and the next 2 I don't know. Lions, Eagles or Cowboys???

I don't see Packers missing the playoffs. Lions haven't been putting up points, been sporadic all year. Packers get their groove back and win out. People putting too much weight on the Bills loss. Packers aren't falling apart.

With apologies to whomsoever-created-this-poll, because it makes little sense to me... so here's my take instead...

Relaxing and Packing (Packers)
Cardiac'ing with the Cards (Cardinals)
Saints Ain't the Ain'ts, and Ain't gonna miss this! (Saints)
Fly, Eagles, Fly! (Eagles)
The 'Boys are back! (Cowboys)

The Pats have been a Quiet Riot this year (Pat Riots)
Only Gronk might eliminate the Broncs (Broncos)
Colts plus Luck = Plucky Playoffs (Colts)
Steelers Steal another one? (Steelers)
Chefs cooking up a playoff spot? (Chiefs)
