    Now that the home/away teams have been released, and honesty this year some teams surprised me with how bad/good they did (for example, the Broncs went from 12-4, 9-7 to 5-11) and some teams did weirdly good (for example, the Eagles went from 7-9 to 13-3, should have 14-2).

    I'm going to re-predict my NFL playoffs since the AFC/NFC West was just absolute garbage this year.

    Divisional Playoff:

    Atlanta
    v Eagles, Saturday 13th.
    I believe the Eagles are going to flop as they did against the Cowboys (6-0 was the score), especially since Matt Ryan is healthy along with a monster defense still at play. Statistics show that Atlanta's Matt Ryan also does far better in the playoffs versus the regular season.

    Titans v Patriots, Saturday 13th.
    I believe that this match-up is a toss-up game. Part of me wants to think that the Patriots will easily win this game, the other part of me says that the Titans are still powerful regarding beating the Chiefs (who did go 5-0 to start the season, including beating the Patriots). For me, this will be undecided, I will be watching this game.

    Jaguars v Steelers, Sunday 14th.
    This game will be a good one, I am sure about it. I do not think that the Jaguars are capable of beating out the Steelers, although, I do believe with enough luck, and if they play like the played against the Steelers in Week 5, getting 5 picks and shutting the Steelers out). I would make this my toss-up match, however the Patriots have a tendency to losing to peculiar teams after winning a Superbowl the season prior.

    New Orleans v Minnesota, Sunday 14th.
    My prediction about Minnesota winning has to tie on with a lot of important factors here. Minnesota is playing at home, which per se does give them an advantage. Other statistics show that Minnesota has a better chance at winning over New Orleans, and their playing to go to the Superbowl to go to their own stadium to play. I think this one is going to Minnesota.

    Conference Championship:

    Atlanta v Minnesota, Sunday 21st.
    This one was a tough one to decide, especially since Minnesota has never made it this far in the playoffs for YEARS however, the Vikings are not the best in ceasing the moment (hint to the missed field goal against the Seahawks). Atlanta still has a much higher chance of winning, and if they do win, they'll be playing in the same stadium 2 weeks from then. I think Atlanta will take this one.

    Tennessee/Patriots v Steelers/Patriots, Sunday 21st.
    (I put patriots twice since they are the 1st seed)
    Despite the fact that I do have 2 teams that could be playing the Steelers in the conference championship, I do believe that neither of them will be able to beat the Steelers fire (I put patriots twice since they are the 1st seed) on the offensive side of the ball. I say Steelers will go to Minnesota to play Atlanta in the Superbowl.

    Superbowl:

    Atlanta v Steelers, Feb. 4th
    Atlanta will get their first Superbowl ring after their devastating loss against the Patriots last year. I just believe that it's not only plausible, it's going to happen. Either way, this will be a fun one to watch if both teams make it this far.

    2018-2019 top 2 teams records:

    North:
    Steelers, 12-4
    Ravens, 9-7

    East:
    Patriots, 13-3
    Dolphins, 9-7​
    West:
    Chargers, 11-5
    Broncos, 10-6
    *the AFC West is incredibly unstable, so I don't trust either of these records.
    South:
    Jaguars, 9-7
    Titans, 8-8​

    North:
    Vikings, 12-4
    Packers, 9-7
    East:
    Eagles, 11-5
    Cowboys, 9-7​
    West:
    Seahawks, 10-6
    Rams, 9-7 (OR) Cardinals, 9-7
    *both AFC West and NFC West are incredibly unstable, don't trust these records.
    South:
    Panthers, 12-4
    Falcons, 10-6

    *there are a lot of good teams here, these 2 have the most stability though.
    Post your predictions below, maybe you'll predict them all!

    Now that the Falcons have lost to the Eagles, my new Superbowl prediction is the Vikings.
