The NFL playoffs are nearly here. Which team do you think is going to win the 2015 Super Bowl?

The Detroit Lions are back in the playoffs, adding a bit of a twist to our annual playoff predictions. This year, we're not just predicting which teams will meet in the Super Bowl and which team will win the whole thing, as we're also predicting just how far the Lions will go in the postseason.

My predictions can be found below. Leave yours in the comments.

Wild-card round

NFC

(3) Cowboys beat (6) Lions
(4) Panthers beat (5) Cardinals

AFC

(3) Steelers beat (6) Ravens
(4) Colts beat (5) Bengals

Divisional round

NFC

(1) Seahawks beat (4) Panthers
(3) Cowboys beat (2) Packers

AFC

(1) Patriots beat (4) Colts
(2) Broncos beat (3) Steelers

Conference championships

NFC

(1) Seahawks beat (3) Cowboys

AFC

(1) Patriots beat (2) Broncos

Super Bowl

Seahawks beat Patriots

Much like last year, I don't expect there to be many upsets. Also much like last year, I'm going with the Seahawks to win it all. Before the season, I had Seattle beating Denver in a rematch of last season's Super Bowl, but I think the Seahawks will take down Tom Brady and the Patriots this time around.

As for the Lions, no, I don't expect them to get by Dallas on Sunday. I'm obviously hoping to be pleasantly surprised, but the Lions winning a playoff game? I'll believe it when I see it.
