  They say that there’s wisdom in crowds. Well, we thought we’d put that to the test, and have all twelve of our NFL writers predict exactly how NFL playoffs will turnout, from the opening wildcard games this weekend to the eventual Super Bowl champion.

  To recap, this is how many ‘votes’ each team got for making it through to their respective championship game:

AFC

Patriots – 8 Steelers – 7 Broncos – 4 Bengals – 3 Chiefs – 2

NFC

Cardinals – 10 Panthers – 8 Seahawks – 4 Vikings – 2

  So there we have it. A majority our writers – seven, to be exact – have the oldest professional American football team, the Arizona Cardinals, winning their first ever Super Bowl this year. Two of our writers are also predicting first-time Super Bowl winners in the Panthers, while we also have two votes for the Patriots to win their fifth Lombardi trophy, and the one lone writer who predicts the Seahawks will make it to their third straight Super Bowl has Seattle reclaiming their crown. Do you think we’re on the money, or are we way off base? Let us know below!
