Poll Friday: Who wins AFC?
By James Walker
Our latest edition of "Poll Friday" is a good one. With the playoffs starting this weekend, which team will prevail and make it to the Super Bowl from the AFC?
There are several teams capable of making a title run, starting with the New England Patriots (13-3). They have won eight straight games and have home-field advantage throughout the postseason. Is this the year Tom Brady and Bill Belichick get back to the big game?
What about AFC North powers like the Baltimore Ravens (12-4) and Pittsburgh Steelers (12-4)? Baltimore can beat you in a lot of different ways offensively and defensively. Pittsburgh is the reigning AFC champs and will be a tough out, despite suffering big injuries recently.
Those are the favorites. But there also are dark horses like the Cincinnati Bengals (9-7), Houston Texans (10-6) and Denver Broncos (8-8) if you like the other teams in the field.
Using our SportsNation poll, vote on which team represents the AFC in the Super Bowl. You can also share your thoughts in the comment section below.
