Philadelphia - #1 seed in a very tough NFC. - #3 ranked offense, #4 ranked defense. - #1 point differential in the NFL this year. - Home field advantage in the NFCCG. - Points allowed at home this year: 24, 7, 24, 10, 23, 3, 10, 6, 10. Last four home games, they've allowed a total of 29 points (7.3 per game). - Nick Foles, outside of his time with a terrible StL team in 2015, has a record of 18-10. - Power running game in Blount and Ajayi. Minnesota - #1 ranked defense in the NFL. - Dynamic receiving threats in Diggs and Thielen. - Keenum has been really solid for them. - Riding momentum from an incredible divisional win. - Very good on the road (25.8 ppg in their last 6 road games, 6-2 record). - If they win the NFCCG, they will have, in effect, a home game in the Super Bowl. Jacksonville - #5 ranked offense, #2 ranked defense. - Can win low scoring game (10-3 vs Buf) and high scoring game (45-42 vs Pit). - Proven it can win big games on the road. - Dynamic running game with Fournette. - Defense generates a ton of turnovers. - The Tom Coughlin factor vs. NE - he might make a huge difference. New England - #2 offense in the NFL (#2 points, #1 yards). - #5 scoring defense. - Tom Brady is the greatest QB of all time, and the winningest playoff QB ever. - Home field advantage. - By FAR the most postseason experience of the remaining four teams. - Their running game matches up well with Jacksonville's main defensive weakness (the inside run). - Gronkowski is practically impossible to match up with. - Belichick has a massive coaching advantage. How I'd rank them in terms of likelihood of winning it all: 1. New England - Best overall team, best player, best coach, HFA. 2. Minnesota - Best defense, must win on the road in the NFCCG, but HFA in a Super Bowl if they get there. 3. Philadelphia - Great defense, HFA in NFCCG. 4. Jacksonville - Great defense, but have to win a road game in the AFCCG, and then possibly another "road" game vs Minnesota in the Super Bowl.
