Other thoughts:
Worst team in the playoffs: Texans
Not by much though. They could still contend.

Best team that missed the playoffs: Jets
It's always rough to go 10-6 and still be shut out. Sorry, Jets.

- The team with more points will win each game.

- One game will go into overtime, prompting Octavian to write an impassioned plea for ties in the playoffs.

- The Patriots will either cheat a lot and get away with it, or cheat a little and everyone freaks out.

- Everyone will marvel at how much slimmer Super Bowl 50 looks compared to 10 years ago.

- A combination of booze and Coldplay ensures nobody stays awake for the second half of the Super Bowl.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

Hopelessly optimistic, I voted for my beloved Broncos to win it all. Not that I think they are the best team in the NFL - the Seahawks hold that honor. But Peyton's clock is about to tick zero, and the defense is good enough (when disciplined) to keep them in any game. I see a team rallying around their aging leader, stepping up, and delivering the unlikely victory.

...why does this scare me?

Leezer: I'm surprised to see you having the Vikings beating the Seahawks and losing to the Cardinals.

The Vikings have had a lot of trouble with mobile qbs all year. And the Seahwaks mopped the floor with them the last time they played. Personally I don't expect them to win.

However, the Cardinals game was very nearly a win for the Vikings. I think the Vikings have a much better chance beating the Cardinals than the Seahawks.

Well, I don't think they have a much better chance of beating the Cardinals mainly because the Vikings won't have a chance to play them at all after being eliminated in the Wildcard round.

I think the Superbowl will be Chiefs vs Cardinals with the Chiefs winning Kansas City's second championship in 6 months and third in the last few years with Sporting KC being the MLS champions 2 years ago.

Seahawks are going to freeze to death. Forecast for the Vikings game is a high of 1 degree and winds 10-15 mph.

Note the Vikings home bench is on the north side of TCF Bank Stadium (The Vikings temporary home until next year when they get their new monster sized stadium) rather than the traditional south. That's because they tested and found out the north side of the field is warmer. The press box casts a shadow over the southern sideline. Last year when they played Carolina in 12 degree weather the Panthers' sideline which was in shadow was 20 degrees colder than the Vikings sideline which was in sunshine.

Wanna place a bet on that? Seahawks win, you have to display Bills microbadges for the remainder of the playoffs. Vikings win I do the same for whichever team you choose.

I'm pretty sure they have lots of heaters on the sidelines. I think the temperature will affect the game on the field, but I don't think the different temperatures on the sideline will make a difference.
