The two wild card teams in each conference, selected from all other teams in the conference, are seeded fifth and sixth respectively, also based on their winning records, etc. The top two seeds get a bye during the first week of the playoffs. With this in mind, here is how we are predicting the 1-6 seeds in each conference. AFC: #1 New England, #2 Pittsburgh, #3 Oakland, #4 Tennessee, #5 Kansas City, #6 Baltimore. NFC: #1 Green Bay, #2 Seattle, #3 Tampa Bay, #4 Dallas, #5 Atlanta, #6 Arizona The Playoffs In the AFC Wild Card round, the #4 seed Tennessee Titans will defeat the #5 seed Kansas City Chiefs, while the #3 seed Oakland Raiders will beat the #6 seed Baltimore Ravens. In the NFC Wild Card round, the #5 seed Atlanta Falcons will upset the #4 seed Dallas Cowboys, as the #3 seed Tampa Bay Buccaneers upend the #6 seed Arizona Cardinals. In the AFC Divisional title round, the #2 seed Pittsburgh Steelers will top the Raiders, while the #1 seeded New England Patriots defeat the Titans. In the NFC, the Buccaneers will upset the #2 seed Seattle Seahawks, while the Falcons fall to the #1 seed Green Bay Packers. In the Conference Championships games, New England will return to the Super Bowl as they topple Pittsburgh in AFC, while Tampa Bay falls to Green Bay, sending the Packers back to the big game for the first time since 2011 when they beat the Steelers in Super Bowl XLV. The Super Bowl In a rematch of Super Bowl XXXI when the Green Bay Packers beat the New England Patriots 35-21, Super Bowl LII will have a much different result. Expect the Tom Brady-led Pats to beat the Pack, winning their third World Championship in four years and their first back-to-back world titles since they did it for the 2003 and 2004 seasons winning Super Bowls XXXVIII and XXXIX, respectively defeating the Carolina Panthers and the Philadelphia Eagles.
