Which team playing this weekend has the best chance of making it to Minneapolis?

AC: I think it has to be the New Orleans Saints. They look a lot like the Falcons did last year with a quarterback catching fire at the right time and two deadly running backs. Their path also could take them to see the struggling Philadelphia Eagles in the divisional round if the Rams beat the Falcons.

DH: Not sure, but it certainly won’t be an AFC team. If I had to guess, the Saints because of their veteran QB and ground game.

SB: Saints – they’ve been there before with this coach and this quarterback, and this defense is looking better than ever before. Factor in a pair of elite running backs, and you’ve got yourself a veritable Super Bowl contender.

SH: I think the Rams; they’re the best team who didn’t get a bye, in my opinion.

TF: New Orleans. They’re dangerous, well coached, and Brees and Payton have been there, done that, and got the T-Shirt. I don’t like Nick Foles and Case Keenum’s odds in a shootout with those guys when the pressure is really on.
