Your B8NFLL Season 14 AFC playoff teams

  1. Miami Dolphins
  2. Columbus Pioneers
  3. Portland Express
  4. Baltimore Ravens
  5. Denver Broncos
  6. Mexico City Browns


In spite of all the injuries on offense, the Dolphins managed to grab the conference's #1 seed for the second consecutive season and extend their record number of playoff appearances to 13.

Coming into S13 with a career 80-112 record, new management has led the Pioneers to a 23-9 record over the past two and the #2 seed in each.

Even after moving to a new city with a lot of roster turnover, the Express have their third straight playoff appearance and fourth overall. They have won a playoff game in every trip thus far.

This is the fourth consecutive AFC North crown and 10-6 record for the Ravens

Despite a 27-21 record and no losing records in the seasons after, this is the first playoff appearance for the Broncos since they made the Super Bowl in S10. This is also just the second time (S2) that they have entered as a wild card.

This is the first playoff appearance for the Browns since stuntman was at the helm in S7

Your B8NFLL Season 14 NFC Playoff Team
  1. Dallas Cowboys
  2. Green Bay Packers
  3. St. Louis Rams
  4. Atlanta Falcons
  5. Washington
  6. Minnesota Vikings


The Cowboys have extended their absurd division title streak to eight as they hope to extend their NFC Conference Championship appearances to the same streak.

After having one of the largest drops in our history from S12 to S13, the Packers had a huge leap from last season to this as they earned their third playoff bye in hopes of making their first Super Bowl.

The Rams have made the second-most trips to the playoffs (11) but are still seeking to become the first NFC West (the only division that has yet to do so) team to make the SB.

The Falcons had a losing record in the second half of the season, but they make their first playoff appearance since S10 as a healthy team.

Washington posted their third-straight non-losing season and second-straight trip to the postseason, but they seek to record their first playoff victory since Jukkie was in charge in S6.

An odd start to the season and unfortunately disproportionate injuries almost had the defending champs miss the playoffs, but they snuck in to make the playoffs for the 7th time in the past eight seasons.

Wild Card Round
Browns at Express
Vikings at Rams
Broncos at Ravens
Washington at Falcons

With the real Super Bowl taking place on February 7th, I am leaning right now toward doing the playoffs on Saturday the 6th and the award ceremony on Friday the 5th.

Okay, I post this every time the playoffs roll around, but I'm here to tell you who the SB contenders are this postseason based on historical data. I don't tell people ad nauseum that the best path to success is defense and the running game for nothing. Of the previous 26 teams to make the SB, all 26 have finished in the top half of the league in running offense while 24/26 have finished in the Top 10 on defense. The two exceptions were the inaugural season Dolphins (19th) and last season's Pioneers (11th).

Without further ado, your SB representatives are likely to come from this pool:
Broncos
Cowboys
Dolphins
Express
Rams
Ravens
Vikings

In other words all of the AI teams in the playoffs. All of the user teams do not meet the criteria, but Pioneers are very close as they do have a Top 10 defense, but their running offense finished 17th.

With that in mind, it is time for my postseason power rankings.

  1. Miami Dolphins
  2. Dallas Cowboys
  3. St. Louis Rams
  4. Portland Express
  5. Green Bay Packers
  6. Columbus Pioneers
  7. Minnesota Vikings
  8. Denver Broncos
  9. Washington
  10. Baltimore Ravens
  11. Atlanta Falcons
  12. Mexico City Browns


The Dolphins D is crushing it this season, and teams are averaging just 107 passing yards per game this season. HB Jacquizz Rodgers followed up his MVP campaign with another stellar one this season. Special teams have been solid in all phases. The issue for them is what version of QB Marcus Mariota will they get. If they get game manager extraordinaire, then the defense and Rodgers will take charge and likely blast through everyone. If Mariota falters or even worse becomes a liability, we've seen how much the offense sinks. No defense can save an offense that only scores a TD and a pair of FGs. Perhaps I am being too hard on a QB that finished with an 18:9 TD:INT ratio and 7th in the league in passer rating, but games against the Patriots and Express show how much this team can miss Sam Keller.

There is probably no single player more integrel to their team's offense than QB Vince Young is to the Cowboys. When he's not playing, the offense is beyond absymal. When he's healthy, they are as close to unstoppable as anyone. The defense in recent seasons has had its ups and downs, but this has been one of the finer seasons from that side of the ball. It's also really hard to bet against the most dominant franchise in league history, and the stars aligned for them in Week 17. That feels like a good omen for fans of the franchise.

The Rams are arguably the best team in the league this season. The trio on offense of QB Ryan Tannehill, HB Eddie Lacy, and WR Patrick Turner were as good of a threesome as anyone. Even as they endured so many long-term injuries to that OL, it didn't knock them down. The defense, which has been one of the league's best over the past several seasons, put up another elite season, which included allowing a league low 12.8 points per game. Their +1 turnover differential is the worst among playoff teams. There are two reasons why the Rams aren't above the Cowboys even with the head-to-head victory earlier in the season. One is that because they are a #3 seed, they will likely have to play two road games to make the SB. The second is that they have arguably the toughest assigned out of any home team in the Wild Card round. The reigning champion Vikings are statistically a Top 5 team in the league. They finished in the Top 10 on O and D, they have a point differential over +50, and their turnover differential even with QB Josh Portis throwing 21 INTs was tied for 7th at +5. The Vikings won five of their final six games and all those wins came by two TDs or more. If one team can handle the Vikings, it's the Rams, but there is still high upset potential.

The Express had the league's toughest schedule with an opponent winning percentage of .543. They still managed to go 11-5 and beat every team in the AFC playoffs except the Pioneers. They get the Browns who will be without their top receiver, so they probably have the best odds of winning in the first round. Then they would get a Pioneers team that is dealing with offensive issues right now, with a theoretical matchup against the Dolphins whom they spanked 37-7 ealier. An Express SB run is not at all farfetched, and with the defense falling in the Top 10 and HB DeMarco Murray ending the regular season on a high note, they just might.

The Packers come into the postseason with the worst defense among playoff teams, and QB Tyrod Taylor posted his worst passer rating (70.4) since S9. They also enter the postseason having played the league's easiest schedule among playoff teams. They also enter with three OL done for the season. Yet in addition of having the advantage of being the #2 seed, there's just something about this team that I believe in. Even if they did play a cupcake schedule, having a +109 point differential is still impressive, and this team has often pleastantly surprised me throughout the season. While I would be shocked if they win the SB, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they make it.

The Pioneers defense began the season with a pair of horrible outings against the Giants and Wildcats, but they righted the ship soon after and never really let up. They allowed fewer than 250 yards in 11 of their 16 games. Many of the potential offenses they can get matched up aren't world beaters, so it stands to reason that the defense can still play at a high level. The offense though has showed some unencouraging signs lately, which included losing three of their final five games while scoring a combined 30 points in those losses. The receivers are playing better, but QB Russell Wilson threw 5 INTs two games when he had thrown five across the first 11 games. He then got injured, and while the backup QBs have been phenomenal, neither have the talent as Russell Wilson does. The running game and OL play have been relatively disappointing as well. As we've seen in past seasons, the Pioneers offense can be prolific, and it did finish 11th overall, but several playoff teams have been able to neutralize this season to where there's some lost faith.

Honestly the Vikings should be 4th based on talent and team production this season, and I already highlighted some important stats when I talked about the Rams. The reason why I can't put them higher is that they would have to win three straight road games to make the SB, and not only is that a tall order, but the Vikings went 3-5 on the road this season.

Unless the Browns upset the Express, the Broncos too would have to win three straight road games to get back to the SB, so that alone makes it hard to put them higher. That's a shame too given their defense played extremely well, and this was definitely their best offensive season since Michael Vick was with them. The one ref flag though is the OL. The OL came into the season with a filthy ridiculous career line (the OTs along had like a 13:1 block:sack ratio), but they just feel apart, though injuries certainly played a role. Teams like the Ravens (their Wild Card opponent), Express and Pioneers finished in the Top 10 in sacks, so they would have to be matched up with at least two teams en route to the SB that can attack their achilles heel.

Washington never fell below .500 this season and ended it winning three of four, including games against the Pioneers and Cowboys. Injuries haven't slowed them down like I thought they could. They aren't the most balanced team, so it's hard seeing them knock off high-quality teams on the road several times, but they do get a juicy matchup against the Falcons right away.

The Ravens D went on an absurd tear to end the season, and the Ravens do have the honor of playing at home, but they don't have a high ceiling in the playoffs. QB play has been underwhelming, special teams outside of the punting unit have been disappointing, and the running game is now down to their 3rd option. When nearly every other AFC playoff defense is playing at a high level, it's hard seeing them have an advantage over anyone. That being said, their last game against the Steelers was an encouraging sign that they are capable of stringing together a balanced performance.

MMX really, really should have done in-season adjustments. It certainly cost the Falcons seeding that they definitely could have used. They are limping into the playoffs with a struggling offense, but the team is now virtually injury-free. It won't be an easy task, but as many teams have shown over the years, being able to place the best team you have forward can be quite valuable.

This is nothing against the Browns. There are a lot of excellent football teams in the postseason, and the Browns have had a lot of great individual player performances this season with some impressive wins. However, QB Dak Prescott regressed significantly in the second half, and they are already going to be without top WR DeAndre Hopkins for at least the first two rounds. I don't have much confidence that they can score enough, and the defense overachieved and doesn't really hold a candle to the other AFC playoff teams.
