In the NFC I think the last game that Vick played vs the Vikings showed the league something and the Packers move on. New Orleans wins in Seattle. Sets up the Packers going to Atlanta. As much as I like the Falcons, I think the Packers will be rolling and the week off will hurt the #1 seed. Packers win. The Bears then get the Saints back in Soldier again, and with the help of the the elements knock out the defending champion setting up an NFC North NFC Championship game. Teams split in the regular season, home teams won, and home team wins again. Bears go to Dallas!
In the AFC, I think the Jets and Ravens will both roll through the first round setting up a great second weekend of rivalry games. In Foxboro Rex's fettish runs out and the Fighting Brady's put a big spot on the Jets again. Then in another hard hitting contest the Steelers avoid another Broken nose and move on to the title game. I think only 1 team can go in to Foxboro and win and that is the Steelers, and I think they control the clock and hit the Pats hard enough to win the AFC.
Super Bowl comes down to Pittsburgh and Chicago and the Steelers win title #7 after Cutler tosses two interceptions, one to Troy Palomalu who returns it to the house, 20-14.
Of course this will probably all be wrong after the first weekend....but that's what makes sports fun!
