Taking schedules into account, remember the teams play against the NFCW and AFCS, undoubtedly the two worst divisions in football.
Lions won't get in. That defense goes from bad to really bad without Delmas. Read somewhere teams put up 27+ per game on them without him, not including the near 50 from the Saints in the playoffs.
The offense, while dangerous, can't rely on another 5000/40 season from Stafford and doesn't have anything to rely on in the run game. Schedule is ok but I see 8 games off the bat I wouldn't favor them in.
Just a guess, I'd replace ATL/DET with Philly/CHI from last year's playoff teams.
