Having said all that I like the Bills to make some noise in that division.
I said that last year and they disappointed early.
Substitute the Bills with the Pats and NE with the Jets. Im almost tempted to drop Indy from the wild card but last year the Skins jumped all over the Gints in game 1. We all know how that turned out.
4 of my picks opened up with sorry performances.
heres the final revision. Yes im leaving out Carolina and da Bears.
The Saints because of Drew Brees and Sean Payton (no other sane reason)
Wildcard = Dallas + GreenBay
(Jets / NE) toss a coin
