Entering the week, we have the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks tied as the favorites, which comes as no surprise with the two teams putting together some of the most impressive seasons so far.

Broncos haven't look too impressive in recent weeks. They definitely have the vibe of a team that's running out of steam.

I wouldn't recommend putting money on them.

Really, since the bye week, the Tennessee win is the only game that looks impressive. At least when you compare it to the standards Denver set during their first eight weeks.

The lack of defense is going to catch up to them. They simply allow too many points and I just can't see the offense pounding out 50-burgers every week of the postseason, which is pretty much what they're going to need to make it through.

The AFC is wide open. No clear favorite.

SMH, I can see a repeat of last year were the Ravens get on roll and get luckier than their opponents in the playoffs. You still need a good defense to win in the post season, and if the Chiefs get healthy on that side of the ball they also could sneak into the Super Bowl.

Or like the Giants the year before that.

Momentum with flurries of luck seem to be the ingredients necessary to win Super Bowls today.

A winout by NE and the road to NY goes through Foxborough to face the battle tested Pats.. Injury riddled or not.

I didn't pick them, but I think the Giants have a shot of beating Seattle this weekend.
