With the end of the NFL season finally here, only 12 teams survived the 17 week battle of attrition and qualified for the National Football League playoffs. These are mostly the best teams in each conference, outside of Carolina which finished under .500 with a 7-8-1 record. But you won't be surprised to see teams like the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks, 2014's runner-up Denver Broncos and the always dangerous New England Patriots at the top of the contenders list. There's always a dark horse candidate, and the teams that could fit that bill are traditional football powers Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys.
