Have all the teams that are in the playoffs been decided yet or do we still need to wait for the games next week (final games of the regular season) to figure the rest of it out?

Glad the Patriots are in.

The AFC picture is clearer with all six teams being decided although how the top four will rank is still up in the air.

The NFC is a little more interesting going into week 17 with the winner of Sunday night's Dallas Washington match up advancing and the loser having their season come to a close.

Anyone planning on Sam Ryan's or other venues for live Wilcard games on Sunday morning (1/6 and 1/13)?

I have playoff guarantees:

Falcons will get bounced in their first game
Seahawks will make it to at least the NFC Championship game
Baltimore will be bounced in their first game
Patriots/Broncos AFC Championship game

I like Unibrow's predictions. We (Seahawks) just lost our top DE Clemons to a ACL tear, hoping it doesn't effect our pass rush as much as predicted... Our defense thrives off pass dependent teams (Falcons, Packers) So I will be a Green Bay fan for a day.

I see a Seahawks - Bronco SB. But it will be hard for my boys pull out a victory, Denver has been on a huge roll.

An NFC West team will be in the Super Bowl. I hope it's the Seahawks!

The Broncos will represent the AFC in the Super Bowl and will very likely win it all.

Next year, expect the NFC West to be the toughest division in the NFL, only three years after being the weakest. St. Louis will be a playoff contender along with Seattle and San Francisco. The NFC East, on the other hand, will continue to be so-so.

I don't get all the Broncos hype. They're the most heavily favored to win the Super Bowl, but I just don't see it. I wouldn't be shocked if they get to the SB, especially since the Pats have been up and down this year, but I think the Niners and Seahawks defenses could shut them down.

I'll be honest, I haven't paid much attention to the Broncos and haven't seen them play this season, but what do they have beyond Peyton? A decent defense I guess? What else? They also played in one of the worst divisions in football (Chiefs and Raiders were god awful and the Chargers weren't exactly amazing). Contrast that to the Pats, Niners, 'Hawks, and even the Packers schedules. All of them played in tougher divisons (well the Pats didn't really, but they had to play the Niners and Texans back to back).

I also am a little worried about the Niners. Their pass rush has gotten pretty weak since Justin Smith was injured. Their offense has also been up and down. I doubt they'll dominate the Packers like they did in Week 1. It would be awesome if they do, but I certainly don't expect to see it.

I really don't have a good gauge on the AFC. Out of the 4 teams left, the only one I can't imagine making it to the Super Bowl is the Texans. The Ravens are probably the worst team out of the bunch, but for some reason I can see them pulling something out of their ass the next couple weeks and making it to the SB.

And yes, i agree, in the NFC it will most likely be the Niners or 'Hawks. I think the Seahawks shouldn't have a problem with the Falcons and they obviously can beat the Niners (and vice versa).

i don't understand the broncos hype either. sure they went on a roll to finish the season, but look at the teams they beat. only the ravens made the playoffs, and they are a sketchy team. the three teams they lost to were atlanta, houston, and new england. i'm not saying they don't have a chance, because i see them beating the ravens, but i don't see them evening the series with the patriots. patriots have gronky back, who they haven't had for half the season, and that's huge. i see packers vs patriots in the super bowl. there hasn't been a better qb than rodgers this season in my opinion with the players he's lost and the sh* running game/offensive line he has had.

The refs were awful in that game. Pace was so slooow thanks to them. Still one hell of a game though and nice to know my gut feeling about the Broncos was right. Very Happy
