AFC Playoff Prediction: 2016

AFC Playoff Prediction While seeding is still in question, we know who will represent the AFC in the playoffs. But who is going to emerge as the Super Bowl team? Quarterback injuries and other deficiencies will play a role. Here is who I suspect has the best shot, in reverse order.
