Game-by-Game Outcome Predictions and Standings

I went through every game on the NFL schedule and predicted the outcome, added up the results, and posted the standings below. I have the game-by-game results in the linked spreadsheet. Division results and spreadsheet link after the jump.

So to begin, Green Bay once again ends up with the best record and the #1 seed in the NFL at 13-3. The 49ers finish 12-4 and get the #2 seed. Philly is 11-5 and is the #3 seed, followed by New Orleans winning a mediocre NFC South. Chicago puts in an impressive 12-4 record and is the #5 seed. Dallas edges out Washington for the #6 seed.

In the AFC, New England goes 12-4 and gets the #1 seed, courtesy of a win over Houston, who also goes 12-4 and gets the #2 seed. Baltimore goes 11-5 and gets the #3 seed, while Denver goes 10-6 to win the AFC West. Tennessee goes 11-5 for the #5 seed and Kansas City gets the #6 seed.

The Colts end up with the worst record and end up trading the Matt Barkley pick to Arizona, who was picking 3rd.

In the first round, (NFC) Philly beats Dallas and Chicago beats New Orleans, while in the AFC Baltimore destroys KC and the Broncos top the Titans. Divisional Round - Niners beat Philly, Chicago upsets Green the AFC, Denver upsets New England (Manning at full speed) while Houston exacts revenge on Baltimore for 2011.

Championship Games: Chicago Bears @ San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos @ Houston Texans.

Super Bowl: San Francisco 49ers vs Houston Texans. Winner: San Francisco 49ers

I appreciate any feedback and discussion; the linked spreadsheet should generate discussion about individual outcomes.
