Super Bowl 2014 – 2013-14 NFL Playoff Picture
Super Bowl 2014 and the 2013-14 NFL Playoff Picture is finally shaping up.
The rule in the playoffs is that the Lowest Seed plays the Highest Seed, all the way throughout the playoffs. The Chargers/Bengals game is the deciding game on who plays in New England or in Denver.
In the AFC, the winner of the Chiefs/Colts game will have to wait until Sunday to find out who they will play next. A Chargers win means they go to Denver. A Bengals win means they go to New England.
In the NFC, the the opposite is true. The New Orleans/Philadelphia game on Saturday decides who goes to Seattle to play the #1 Seahawks. If The Saints win, they go to Seattle. If the Eagles win, they go to Carolina and the winner of the 49ers/Packers game on Sunday goes to Seattle.
