True or False: Dolphins v Saints International Series special

One of these teams will make the playoffs

John – At least one of them will I think it’ll be the Saints but wouldn’t be shocked if the Dolphins made a late run at the Playoffs.

Dan – False. When you start to look how the cards appear to be falling in both the NFC and AFC, it seems hard to believe that either team can make it. In the AFC the Dolphins probably won’t win the Division and I genuinely believe that 2 wild card teams come from the AFC West. In the NFC I can’t see the Saints beating out either the Bucs or the Falcons in their division and I think the 2nd Wild Card spot goes to either the NFC East or North. read more

First of all, although I use the word disappointment the Titans can look back on their first winning season since 2011 with no small measure of pride. The last 12 months have been a great step forward, and a sense of hope is returning to a franchise who have long been mediocre at best, atrocious at worst. read more
