My predictions for the 2011 Season

Looking at the schedule for the season, I have think I've got a few suprises. I'm curious what you guys think. Keep in mind I'm not one of those so-called-experts, just an average guy.

AFC

New England Leads the league with 13 wins

Pittsburgh (11-5), San Diego (11-5), Houston (9-7) win their Divisions

New York Jets (11-5), Kansas City (10-6) win wild cards

Cleveland (9-7), and Buffalo (7-9) make big strides

Baltimore (8-8), Indianapolis (6-10), Oakland (5-11) take steps back for various reasons.

NFC

Green Bay leads the Conference and home field advantage with 12 wins (Losses at ATL, at SD, at NYG, at KC)

Atlanta, Philadelphia, Arizona all win their Divisions with 10-6 records, ATL with bye

Dallas and Detroit win wild cards with 10-6 records

New Orleans barely misses playoffs with a 9-7 record, NYG's and Chicago both have 8-8 records

Minnesota goes to their rookie QB quickly after a bad start, 5-11

ACF Championship

NY Jets @ San Diego WINNER New York Jets

NFC Championship

Atlanta @ Green Bay WINNER Green Bay

Super Bowl

New York Jets 28

Green Bay Packers 30

Obviously I'm a bit biased in the Packers realm, but really it's a disappointment if they don't get to the conference championship. I'm also not sold on the "dream team". Anyone but the origional hasn't really lived up to billing. I was suprised to find that the Saints didn't make the playoffs in my prediction of the season. And the Browns are getting there, but they are one more season away from a playoff spot. They're gonna be good this year.

I'm sure many of you will disagree with my NFC, but just tell me what y'all think.
