Predicting The NFL Playoff Field Irresponsibly Early

If you're not going to do it before it's even vaguely logical to try, why even bother?

Yes, it's time for yet another irresponsibly early prediction. This time, I'd like to see everyone guess who will make the playoffs from both the NFC and AFC.

My predictions feature a couple of mild surprises, chief among them that I have three NFC South teams making the playoffs. I bet you'll never guess which three. If you'll look below, you can see mine, and challenge me with (probably better) picks of your own.

The winner gets...something. I'll figure that out closer to the end of the upcoming season, if that works for all of you.

Time to go crazy. But not too crazy:

AFC East: Jets
AFC North: Ravens
AFC South: Colts
AFC West: Chiefs
Wildcards: Jaguars, Chargers

NFC East: Eagles
NFC North: Packers
NFC South: Falcons
NFC West: Rams
Wildcards: Saints, Bucs

As a quick FYI, I'll be basically without a computer for the next three days. Adam, Caleb and James will be your erstwhile guides until then. Adieu!
