For all the parity Darth Goodell and NFL likes to claim, we are exactly where we thought we would be at the end of the regular season. Everyone had the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots as the top two teams in the AFC. The AFC South leading Indianapolis Colts were the trendy dark horse play to overtake one of the top two spots. The only surprise in the AFC was the Pittsburgh Steelers claiming the AFC North title, but that can’t be considered shocking. The NFC saw one anticipated contender, the San Francisco 49ers, fall from grace, but the conference race played out as expected.
