2013 NFL Predictions

I have previewed and picked all eight divisions, so now is the time for me to reveal my playoff teams and predictions for how the playoffs will unfold. With parity in mind, I expect there to be 3 new playoff teams in both the AFC and NFC. Some of you will inevitably say I am biased in my Super Bowl pick, but I won't be alone in picking the San Francisco 49ers to win their sixth Super Bowl. It is the natural progression in their third year under Jim Harbaugh. First year was the NFC Championship, second year was making it to the Super Bowl, and his third year will culminate in a Super Bowl title. 


1. San Francisco 49ers (NFC West Champ), 12-4
2. Green Bay Packers (NFC North Champ), 11-5
3. New Orleans Saints (NFC South Champ), 10-6
4. New York Giants (NFC East Champ), 10-6
5. Atlanta Falcons (Wild Card), 10-6
6. Chicago Bears (Wild Card), 9-7
