5. Detroit Lions (12 - 5)
Losing Sam LaPorta to start the playoffs would be a significant blow to the Lions offense but reports say he has an outside shot of playing. The Lions still have a good group of skill position players with Amon Ra St. Brown and running backs David Montgomery and Jahmyr Gibbs. Jared Goff is a seasoned vet with a ton of playoff experience as well. This matchup of Goff versus his old team, the LA Rams will be a fun one to watch.
4. Cleveland Browns (11 - 5)
There are really three teams in the AFC that I'm keeping an eye on to make the conference title game and the Browns are one of them. Joe Flacco has as much playoff experience as anyone in the postseason and he's playing like he's in prime. The Browns also bring the league's best defense to the field. They are also one of the few teams that were able to beat the Ravens, defeating them 33 - 31 back in November.
3. Buffalo Bills (11 - 6)
Just five weeks ago, the Bills were 6 - 6, sitting as the 11th seed in the AFC and three games behind the Dolphins in the AFC East. Five straight wins later, the Bills were crowned division champs and awarded the conference's number two seed. They'll host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday and begin their trek towards a potential Super Bowl.
