everything is in place, /sp/
who will win it all?
The second coming of Edelman will save them
Is there some kind of text or video I can go through to learn about the game/modern history? The rules confuse me and I want to know the background for the teams so I can shitpost properly
Why wouldn't they? Unless the Redskins really reallyyyyyy fucking show up to play it's theirs for the taking. Green Bay is already dead in the water. Just awful all over the place
Seahawks played like shit for the first half of the season, and just lost to the terribad rams, vikings just beat won one rematch - i think they have it
>houston beating kansas city
>redshits beating GB
Today might have been a blessing in disguise. Getting your weaknesses exposed that hard right before the playoffs instead of in the playoffs gives you a chance to fix them. Plus that's a big wet dickslap in the face to wake up a good team that has gotten complacent.
If they use it as motivation they are going to be a nasty team to face.
I know you guys won't believe me but I already know what the league worked out the playoffs to look like. It's going to be super fucked up to create a lot of drama.
Confirmed for not paying any real attention to the games and just looking at end game stats. Hawks lost to the late season rams every superbowl season. Big thing for them is they have momentum
>no one has taken the chiefs
I can't wait to sit here smiling and laughing at all the peasants and fools who dared doubt the best team in the NFL and the best sporting city on the planet. It just makes me laugh so hard I'm almost in tears
KC 18 HOU 11
KC 23 NE 19

If you don't do it this way you're a retard.
50th anniversary back at Lambeau. Underdog vitory, everyone loves a story like that.
I have them in the afc chip game and gave serious thought to putting them in the owl
I haven't watched a single chefs game this season 2bh (who would?), so I'm just going with what I've heard and they ave a lot of momentum
>my team's games fit right in line with my work schedule's free time
oh fuck yes
>inb4 someone posts a bracket with improper seeding and everyone goes apeshit
Pats fan here. Realistically this is the best thing that can happen.
Gonna be rooting for the good guy cardinals once my pats are 1 and done.

again, another moron who doesn't understand the matchups in round two.
this isnt a bracket you faggots. the #1 seed plays the LOWEST REMAINING SEED in the second round. it's impossible for the packers to play the cardinals in round 2 if the Vikings are beating the Seahawks first round.

really hoping for a 2009 rematch
A Texans team with a defense thats shut down every team but New England for the past 2 months and a QB that no matter how shitty can actually throw the ball more than 7 yards downfield without suffering a panic attack.
If I need to explain Green Bay then you're an ever more casual faggot than I thought
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS GAMES AGAINST PLAYOFFS TEAM SINCE NOV 29, WHEN THEY CAUGHT FIRE:
>Nov 29 vs Pitt.
>Dec 6 vs Minn.
>Jan 3 vs Ariz.
>not choosing Seattle
>Lose to Denver by 3 points with the ball at midfield
>Lose to Cardnals by 3 points with the ball, within FG range but fumble
>Lose to Packers, beat them in the rematch
I wouldn't count them out to beat the hawks, yeah they lost to them badly but the hawks lost a few games early and reffballed the lions and cowboys, and just lost to the rams, no reason to think they're unbeatable
Everyone picking the seahawks, you should know how hard it is to beat a team twice. Also consider the Vikings were missing Anthony Barr, Harrison Smith, Linval Joseph, and Everson Griffen for their first matchup.
You my friend on a scale of 1 to full autism have 99 autism...
You get angry in a bullshit thread on a fucking mongolian hand painting forum where everyone posts bullshit predictions. Think about your fucking life right now. Yeah, that's right...
>tfw based jew comes back and the Patriots offense is unstoppable again
The Cardinals getting BTFO today might have actually been a blessing. Seahawks exposed whatever weakness the team had and now the Cardinals can prepare for the better. Seriously though, Seattle is pretty fucking scary right now.
Search your heart. You know it to be true.
SB50 score will also be Hawks 43, Broncos 8 again
The Bills just roasted the Jets for the second time and kicked them out of the playoffs, faggot.
The Rams beat the Seahawks twice this season.
What the fuck are you talking about? Are you retarded or retarded?
>All these people picking Shitatle to even make the owl
Teams with realistic shots:
Young teams/"dangerous teams":
Should just be happy to be there:
Ebin meme 1 and done tier:
>Pats ahead at the end of the fourth quarter again
>Seahawks get a miracle catch again
>Get down to the one yard line
>Decide to run it this time
>[spoiler]Lynch fumbles, recovered by eighth string D lineman[/spoiler]
where my Steelers bros at?
7th Heaven confirmed, baby
If Patterson hadn't fumbled that would've been a 27-13 game. The vikings did everything wrong at the end and still won. I think stopping them 3 times on the goal line in the fourth quarter with literally no rest just shows the absolute tenacity of our defense.
>calls people idiots while putting the chiefs in the superb owl
when will you fairweather retards quit latching on to some shit team that plays no one down the stretch and goes on 7 or 8 game winning streaks because of it. it happens every goddamn year
Okay, well considering momentum, I'd say the Seahawks have huge momentum right now. And they should have Lynch and Chancellor back from injuries.
The Vikings have a lot to prepare for.
>tfw no one laughs at your shitty picks
Are my picks GOAT?
Steelers > Bengals
Texans > Chiefs
Seahawks > Vikings
Packers > Redskins
Steelers > Broncos
Patriots > Texans
Seahawks > Panthers
Cardinals > Packers
Patriots > Steelers
Cardinals > Seahawks
Cardinals > Patriots
But honestly, we should easily beat GB. Which is to say, we'll lose.
Cardinals getting to the NFCCG is pretty realistic. Seattle could get there but the Vikings, who already got ass raped by the Hawks, are going to be better prepared. And then the Panthers are still a really good fucking team.
As far as the AFC goes, I think that entire thing is open to anyone. I don't think any one team has the advantage in the AFC.
Said this several times today, don't get it twisted. If you think the Vikes are going to lie down and die like the last time the seacucks came to town, you're delusional. Barring any setbacks from the injuries tonight, the Vikes will be whole again next weekend. The seacucks better be prepared for more of a challenge this time.
Very good point
That Cheesefags/Shitskins game next weekend may be the most memetastic of the entire playoffs
Fuck Snyder, fuck Gruden, fuck Cousins, fuck that insufferable nigger D-Jack, fuck that entire franchise
That's where my new goal for the Vikes is: getting to the NFCCG against the Cards. Sure, we'll die a painful death there most likely, but just to be there
Seeing some Broncos over Seahawks pics.
Remember how awful and slow Peyton looked last time they met in the Owl? Remember now that he's also two years older?

The only thing that flaming faggot Roger Goodell cares about is an AFCC one final matchup with those two faggots Manning and Brady...for $$$$$$, for ratings, for all the money-grubbing jews
Can't wait too see both the Bengals and Vikings get absolutely BTFO
You are so fucking delusional, I want to pat you on the back. It's like you don't even watch football.
the one guarantee is that the AFC is going to be a shit show and is totally open. The Pats and Steeler are decrepit and everyone else are choke artists with average or worse qbs. I can't wait
I love these threads. You get to see who doesn't know the first thing about seeding in the playoffs.
80% of /sp/ is picking the Steelers to beat the Bengals
fuck you this is our year
fuck you Aj McCarron isn't Andly Dalton
>vikings fans faces tonight when they realize they have to play the seahawks next week
It'll be a better game than last time
As much as I despise both franchises, I almost want to see a Bengals/Shitskins superb owl so that pathetic faggot Nantz has to sit there and talk about Dalton/McCarron/Cousins as opposed to his butt-boy Brady
dont forget, youll have to do it twice
Because even with a potent running game, they can't do both. They either do great running and suck at the pass, or vice versa. They take too long to get into a rhythm. But if that offense clicks, they are just too much. AB is the best WR in football, and if they learned from their mistakes, Ben will sell passes to him and then just go to Wheaton.
Just wish Bryant could fucking catch...
Even if that is the case, the opposing team doesn't know what they'll get on any given Sunday, so they do have to gameplan for both.
The gameplan vs the Steelers will be 'Double Team Tony Brown' and put someone on every other receiver for all 55 times Ben Drops back.
>all these people mad about people picking out not picking their team to win
That's the joy of being a Seahawks fan. I truly don't care. Neither does the team. Fans, analysts, and enthusiasts have been saying the hawks "can't make the playoffs" and "can't win the super bowl" for the last few years, and you've been proven wrong over and over. Your opinions mean nothing.
Hawks are winning it all.
Don't be a prisoner of the moment, don't count the Cowboys out just yet, they'd be 16-0 right now if it wasn't for fluke injuries, I think Romo and Dez might have 1 last trick up their sleeve.
But seattle lost their best receiver and their best running back for the season.
How will they survive the tough defenses like the Panthers, Broncos and Cardinals in the playoffs?
Also, they don't have home field at all.
Chiefs > Texans
Steelers > Bengals
Seahawks > Vikings
Packers > Redskins
Patriots > Chiefs
Steelers > Broncos
Cardinals > Packers
Panthers > Seahawks
Patriots > Steelers
Panthers > Cardinals
Patriots > Panthers
if panthers stayed undefeated I would have them winning it out from a multitude of reasons including psychological reasons
This is going to happen and despite the
this will happen because one
>vikings can't beat good teams
>rodgers has been exposed since his week in denver and since then the bottom of the barrel have feasted on him even the raiders picking him off twice in the end zone which the vikings did to essentially win the game , along with the fact that redskins rested their starts and some are even coming back
>seahawks will beat the panthers because of their heated momentum that will most definitely carry on to the playoffs and after they steam roll the vikings will go onto the panthers
>cardinals have just gotten humbled for the third time and this one will just bounce them back up like the last two have , they're going to win the owl and the NFC west will be the first division to have an all owl winning division
>texans are coming off a big win against a shit team , they lost their best offensive player a LT , chiefs are not the team shitposters say they are and have not faced a legitimate team . This is no different but remember alex without harbough is like patriots without a first seed and week bye
>texans will lose to broncos
>pats are heavily injured and are horrible as a second seed statically plus steelers are slowly getting back to their form and are only injured offensively
SB will be a easy win for the cards cap this
The only bit that maters is the end result, all the rest is irrelevant.
>all these people picking the seachickens
Also, how can you even make a bracket for the NFL? The matchups are re-seeded after the first round.
Pats return 6 or so good players soon. Chiefs are built to beat them, but won't have nearly enough to stop them. Seahawks and Carolina is slugfest, with Carolina barely outlasting them. Pats win narrowly, or lose.
This would be the most based outcome
Bonus points for keeping some pretty clean copied boxes.
guys, what if...
now hear me out on this one...
guys hear me out on this one
You guys, the Texans...
...make it to the owl against either the Redskins or the Vikings
Points deducted for not understanding seeding.
Fixed that weak shit.
Is this the worst playoff field in recent memory? I can't recall so many teams with so many glaring flaws being in the playoffs? There are really only 3-4 teams who could really win it all.
Deangelo will be back. He was back on the field stretching during the 2nd half.
Pittsburgh is a real hit and miss team. One game Big Ben is throwing for 5 TDs against a top 10 defesnse then next week he can throw 4 picks. That's why nobody wants these fucks in the playoffs. Very unpredictable.
>mfw all these delusional as fuck bungles fan think their shit back up qb can save them from being raped by Rapistburger
bangles over steelers
Bangles over broncos
cheifs over Texans
Patriots over cheifs
vikings over Seahawks

No se puede demostrar que estoy equivocado
Only game I give a fuck about is Bengals-Steelers. I can already see the future, like it's already happened multiple times or something:
Close game at half, let's say 10-7 Bengals. Second half rolls around and the Bengals literally get BTFO and are manhandled like the little bitches they are. Final score 34-13.
Fuck this team. Same old shit, different year. Marvin Lewis will be 0-7 in the playoffs here shortly, an NFL record. God forbid we fire him for Hue Jackson though. Let's just let him walk right out of the building to fuck us up later down the road with this same piece of shit Marvin Lewis.
Seahwks are the probably the most dangerous team in the NFC right (lol panthers) Everyone is doing their best to avoid them. Nothing is concrete but the Hawks have beaten every NFC playoff team this season except the Panthers
Pittsburgh is always the AFC to keep an eye on and the Patriots are suffering from the absence of their best players. Pey Pey is back but he has a terrible playoff record.
I'm betting on Hawks-Steelers
>Thinking the Bungles will win without their precious Dalton
>Steelers on the road
I'm a Steelers fan lad, but don't expect much. They can definitely at least handle the Benglels but any real playoff teams will fuck them up if it's an away game for Pittsburgh.
>being dead wrong and still calling someone else retarded
No they don't you fucking retard. If the Steelers win, they play the Broncos. The lowest seed plays the highest in the second round. Idiot
I live in Arizona.
It's Raiders and Cowboys. It's all the white people who couldn't even point out Pittsburgh on a map and have never been, nor would ever want to go there, who like the Steelers.
There are an awful lot of toss-ups this year. It's pretty clear that Arizona wasn't trying yesterday and Green Bay intentionally threw in order to acquire the much easier game.
Some of these memes need to die though. The Steelers, Seahawks, Redskins, and Bengals have no chance of making it to the Owl. Stop propagating these memes.
If your name has been called, you need to come see me after class and review NFL playoff seeding before the test on Friday.
Dalton will win his first playoff game and not lose after that
Eifert will be Owl MVP
Gio will break 100 yards in Owl
Seacuck fans will all become Bengal fans
The funniest part isn't that the chiefs are in the AFCCG it's that the Broncos beat them in the AFCCG. If the chiefs even make it that far they're going to beat peypey who gets started that game.
>Only one game to decide it
you lose and season over
>Seahawks gets to play at home all the way to a potential super bowl?
they are the 6th seed, meaning last in thier conference. They will not have another home game.
i'm sure the [insert assblasted team here]'s will do better next year

He is a dumb ass, yes.
But why are Canadians so unfunny and unoriginal?
>mfw Native American activist groups blockade the stadium and the game is delayed for 2 hours
Not with Arizona in their side of the bracket
No RB, not happening
Everyone only thinks they're good because they beat up a bunch of bad teams in a row.
Win by the Dalton, die by the Dalton
as a pats fan, sure. if they are still as injured as they have been and they run the ball for no raisins then i cant see pats winning at denver.
i mean the moment blunt learns how to move north/south without just running into a pile he gets injured. hopefully the edlegronk combo still works
>Steelers having a real chance
>get swept by the Baltimore Ravens practice squad
they'll beat the Bungles since they can't win playoff games, but they are guaranteed to get blown out by the Pats
I'm calling this right now. Screencap this for the ages, this is happening.
You're not exactly wrong, but Minnesota also isn't the strongest defensive team, which I guarantee will come into play. Also, right now Bridgewater is definitely a meme QB, but I'm sure in a few seasons he'll develop an actual play style. Not that that helps right now...
