St. Louis 2001 1007 6690 952 4471 6.64 4.70 1.95
Baltimore 2000 1058 5014 924 3967 4.74 4.29 0.45
NY Giants 2000 1064 5376 988 4546 5.05 4.60 0.45

In the first sheet the bold teams are the divisional winners and the italic are the wild card teams. In the second sheet I have the SB winners in Bold and the italic are ones that fall outside of the norms.

For the NFC I am going with the winner of the New Orleans vs Detroit game to get to the Superbowl. I think either team is strong enough defensively and offensively to run the table. SF is not strong enough in the offense to do anything. Atlanta is in a similar boat however I do see them beating NY. NY is the better team and should win this weekend. As for Divisional playoff weekend. If Detroit wins then SF will get handled by NY. In NO wins then they will destroy SF with NY losing a close one to GB. The conference game will then be either NO vs GB or NY vs Detroit.

For the AFC I think Baltimore has the best shot to take go to the Superbowl. Pittsburgh will destroy Denver along with Cincy losing a close one to Houston. In the divisional round I could for see a close game between Pittsburgh and New England with Pitt closing out the game. As for the other game I see Houston getting crushed by Baltimore. The conference game will see Baltimore beating Pittsburgh for the 3rd straight time this year.

As for the Superbowl it will be New Orleans vs Baltimore with a Baltimore close pull out victory or a Detroit victory in a nail bitter.
