It’s Time to Look Back at Our NFL Playoff Predictions and See How We Did

bill-swift - January 3, 2013

Way back in August, a couple of us decided to make some playoff predictions and put them in print for eternity. Our video game guy Aaron was going to pick three teams in the AFC who made the playoffs last year but wouldn't this season, along with three teams who would return to the postseason after being out in 2011. I was doing the same for the NFC.

For the teams who we thought would return, Aaron went with Oakland, Tennessee and the Jets. Neither of those teams came close. I picked Seattle, Chicago and Dallas to get back. Seattle made it, and Dallas and Chicago were eliminated in the final week so combined we were 1-5 in that one.

Of the teams we picked to not get back to the postseason, I chose the defending champion New York Giants, New Orleans and Detroit. None of them made it. Aaron went with Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Denver, and only Pittsburgh didn't make it. Combined we were 4-2 on that.

Here at Egotastic!, we stand by our picks, right or wrong.
