At the midpoint of the 2015 NFL season, our analysts refresh their predictions on the major individual awards, the entire playoff field and Championship Sunday/Super Bowl outcomes.
AFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
Gil Brandt: Panthers over Packers. Right now, these are the two best teams in the NFC. Carolina has overcome so many things. The fact they have Cam Newton and Luke Kuechly will propel them into the title game. With Green Bay, it's all about Rodgers. The loss to Denver showed he can be negated by a great defense. I think the Panthers' unit can come close enough to doing what the Broncos were able to do.
