Pre-season playoff picks – How did I do?
I went back to my 2014 NFL season preview to check out my playoff predictions. I did very well in the AFC getting 5 out of the 6 playoff teams correct (I missed the Colts). Along with this, I got the 1 and 2 seeds exactly correct. In the NFC, I only got 3 out of the 6 playoff teams (Green Bay, Seattle, and Detroit). I had picked San Francisco, New Orleans, and Philadelphia to make the playoffs, but they all missed. Further, I had picked San Francisco and New Orleans to be my top 2 seeds. In the NFC, the only seed I correctly identified was the Lions at the 6 seed.
So overall, I got 8 out of the 12 playoff teams correct. Not bad. imho.
Below are my playoff predictions along with the actual results in parenthesis.
1. New England (1 seed)
2. Denver (2 seed)
3. Houston (Missed Playoffs)
4. Baltimore (6 seed)
5. Pittsburgh (3 seed)
6. Cincinnati (5 seed)
1. San Francisco (Missed Playoffs)
2. New Orleans (Missed Playoffs)
3. Green Bay (2 seed)
4. Philadelphia (Missed Playoffs)
5. Seattle (1 seed)
6. Detroit (6 seed)
