You already know my AFC and NFC predictions. I may have screwed up SF's record. They will be the first wild card.

AFC
1.KC
2.Pittsburgh
3.Tennessee
4.Buffalo
5.Baltimore
6.Indianapolis
7.Cleveland

NFC
1.TB
2.Seattle
3.GB
4.Dallas
5.SF
6.NO
7.Detroit

Wild Card Round
AFC

Cleveland over Pittsburgh
When you play a division rival twice in a row, there's usually a tighter rematch. Pittsburgh's defense may have them playing down to less competition than in the past unless the team is underrated. Cleveland is, and it's hard to beat a team three times in a year without a fight. Pittsburgh hasn't done well in that department. If NE or LV get this wild card, Pittsburgh should easily advance.
Indianapolis over Tennessee
Tennessee is not as good at home as they tend to play with less of a chip on their shoulders, and the more seasoned Colts and Rivers should pull off the upset. The flashy team wins the regular season, but not in the playoffs.
Baltimore over Buffalo
After this, Buffalo fans will be calling for a new QB. The Bills get tough luck here because they face a team much better than them, but it will start to set in that the Bills can't win a playoff game. Buffalo, while a good defense, does not quite have what Tennessee and LAC possessed. That makes it easier for the Ravens to get over the hump.

NFC
Seattle over Detroit

Seattle hasn't lost at home in so long, and they won't lose this one either.
NO over GB
GB is a tough place to play in January, but NO is simply the better team all around. The Saints would have to collapse on defense to lose this game, even in the cold.
Dallas over SF
Dallas loses week 15 to San Francisco, which means when they rematch in the same place three weeks later, it's going to be a different result. Dallas hasn't lost a wild card round in their last three appearances.

Divisional Round
AFC
KC over Cleveland

This CAN be an upset if Mayfield wants to challenge Mahomes and shows up. Mayfield is hungrier than Mahomes, but KC may have too much talent for Cleveland to pull out the upset.
Baltimore over Indianapolis
I don't like picking the Ravens to beat the Colts twice, but I'm also not sure on the regular game. Ravens are just too good in this spot to lose to the Colts, especially in Baltimore. But if they did, the Colts are going to have a real shot at the title.

NFC
NO over TB

So, I'm taking a chance here, but Brees will be too hungry here. This is his shot, and he has to face a division rival, which makes the him much more focused compared to playing the Vikings. Also, they will have played this Bucs team three times, so surely they should figure them out by this point. The Giants lost a shootout to the 2007 Pats, but what happened in the SB? The Saints are one of those teams too good to get torched two times in a row by the same team.

Seattle over Dallas
The Cowboys are winning the week 3 game, but they're not winning in a colder Seattle or winning two times in Seattle. Seattle is limping to the NFCCG.

AFC Championship
Baltimore over KC

Baltimore is gonna be that hot team going on a run, and KC's weak home schedule of teams are not in this team's league.

NFC Championship
Seattle over NO

This is the SB. If NO knocks off TB, they deserve to win this game. Seattle won't be the 2013 team and NO is better than their 2013 team they were. But RW at home in the NFCCG could give him the spark to go all out to get back to the SB. That's what I think happens.

Super Bowl
Baltimore vs. Seattle
You have a motivated LJ who delivers on his promise to get his team to the SB going up against RW, who has waited to get back to this event. Baltimore may be more talented, but you can't overlook Wilson in this game. He's going to be too hungry and motivated. He's been here before. LJ hasn't.

Super Bowl Champions
Seattle Seahawks


IF NO does not beat TB, then TB goes to the SB and Baltimore wins.
If the Colts win their division, Baltimore is still facing them in divisional or AFCCG. Same result.
If Cleveland does not get the last wild card, Pittsburgh will move on and will lose to Indianapolis, who they will play three weeks earlier.

These days it's all but impossible for a team to repeat as SB champs. Too many variables, too many things can go wrong. But if there's any team that can double up on the trophy it's the Chiefs. I'll assume Mahomes can stay healthy all season long or if he does get hurt somewhere along the line, at the very least be completely healthy by playoff time. If so, then the Chiefs are my pick.

You nailed the AFC teams and were 11 of 14 not bad!
