AFC Seeds:
1. Denver Broncos
2. New England Patriots
3. Indianapolis Colts
4. Cincinnati Bengals
5. Kansas City Chiefs
6. San Diego Chargers

NFC Seeds:
1. Seattle Seahawks :(
2. Carolina Panthers
3. Philadelphia
4. Green Bay
5. San Francisco (FTW!)
6. New Orleans Saints
Highlights of Week 17: A possibly intoxicated Franklin telling everyone how much he fucking hates the Packers and how pissed he was that they made the playoffs.

Seriously, fuck the Packers. And fuck the Lions too, for failing to win such a fucking easy division. And while we're at it, Fuck the Bears too.

But, as for my playoff predictions:
Saturday, Jan. 4
4:35 p.m. ET -- Kansas City Chiefs at Indianapolis Colts (NBC)
This is an interesting game, because the Chiefs strike me as a team built to win the Superbowl. A pass-rushing defense, a good running game, and a QB that doesn't fuck up. However, the Colts and their neckbeard savior Andrew Luck have shown they can beat any team in the NFL, and lose to any team in the NFL. Ultimately, without the stability that is Wayne, I think they'll struggle to make plays against the Chiefs scary D.
8:10 p.m. ET -- New Orleans Saints at Philadelphia Eagles (NBC)
Brees and Sean Payton have been in the playoffs before, and I think their experience will give them the edge over Foles and Chip Kelly. It'll be a lot closer than most people expect, because the Saints have looked like shit on the road in the final stretch of the season (they lost to the Rams, for fucks sake)
1:05 p.m. ET -- San Diego Chargers at Cincinnati Bengals (CBS)
Maybe I just like the narrative of the Bengals being one-and-done every year, or maybe I believe that Rivers is a very, very good QB that just needs his defense to keep the other team down. Regardless, I'm feeling the Charger's could surprise a lot of people if their defense can get hot enough to let their offense win games.
4:40 p.m. ET -- San Francisco 49ers at Green Bay Packers (FOX)
Fuck the Packers. Harbaugh dusts off the read-option playbook, and Kaep runs for 300 yards while Gore runs for 500. Aaron Rodgers throws 19 picks to Kaep's 21 TDs. San Francisco wins this blow-out, 289-2, as the 49'ers give a mercy safety to end the game.
You don't think I'm going to post here sober, do you?  ???

I have embraced my Benny Franko side. I'm sleazy.

Colts - KC pass defense is based on dominating man coverage.  Luck is going to have his way at home.

Saints - Only because I really need them to win this week so SF doesn't have to go to Seattle next week (or at all).

Chargers - Because they are still the Bengals.

49ers - Franklin's assessment works for me.

Pro-Tip for OSU: tackle Watkins before he gets a first down.

Both of the games were great yesterday. Colts had an amazing 28-point comeback, and now I just need to find Roundy and laugh at him.

But Chip Kelly FTW!  I just need to hope the 49ers don't get Rodgered at Lambeau. I would commiserate with Junker but I think he is six feet under after OSU shat the bed on Saturday.

I am in fact alive, better than ever.  SF pulled out the win in freezing temps.  I anticipate a low-scoring, smash-mouth game at Carolina next week (which means it probably won't be) in which SF gets revenge.

As far as OSU goes, I am unaware of any game that took place recently.  I spent the weekend with Secret User and have no recollection of any game being played by OSU.

With SF's receivers at full strength again, I think they can can cause some problems for Carolina as well.  I am looking forward to the rematch.

Would you like a recap of the OSU game?

Agreed.  SF is also the hottest team in the playoffs right now.

Won't be needed.  I watched them lose to MSU which was the last game of the season.  I will look forward to next season.

Now if NO can take out Seattle, SF will even get a home playoff game if they beat CAR.

The Flyers have been really hot lately.  Maybe they'll make yet another failed run at the Stanley Cup this year.
