Inevitably, each year the playoff teams will be reshuffled and some teams who made it the previous year will falter and teams who didn’t quite make the cut the year before will find their way into tournament. Around the NFL’s Marc Sessler and Conor Orr went through (a scooch early, if you ask me) the five teams who they think will miss the playoffs this season and the five new teams who will be going to the playoffs in 2015.

Sessler predicts the five teams not returning to the playoffs will be the Bengals, Cowboys, Panthers, Lions and Broncos. Orr has predicted that the Saints, Bills, Eagles, Texans and Falcons will be making the playoffs in 2015. I honestly forgot that the Bengals actually made the playoffs last year. Their first-round exit has been so common that it’s almost like they don’t make it anyway.
