Literally anyone except Pittsburgh. I don't even care really. Go Cleveland I guess.

I'll totally root for Buffalo. I've never hated them, even within the AFCE. Really fun fan base. Would love to see the Lombardi back in the division.

Tennessee by far, but I'd be happy for Buffalo or Cleveland. Vegas has no chance and every other franchise is incredibly hatable.

Cleveland/Bills/Vegas

edit: I also love how the Colts play but I don’t like that organization for some reason. I really hated Manning.

Anyone but Pitt, Balt, KC . . . . in that order.

Tennessee would be great because of Vrabel and my apathy for Tennessee fans.

Cleveland would be great because, well, Cleveland . . . and it would hurt Pitt fans somewhat.

Buffalo and/or Miami would be great stories — may be a bit too close to home though. Not yet until Belichick retires, please.

Vegas and the Colts would be fine — neither bother me — would lean Colts over Vegas despite DFG.

Should be a poll.

Not the Bills - I hate New York.
Not the Chiefs.
Not the Ravens.
Not Pittsburgh.

Cleveland or Tennessee would be preferable.

Bills Mafia are dancing on the Patriots grave today and celebrating the end of the dynasty. Screw them. Yeah, it’s petty of me. But whatever. Rooting for Indy or Tennessee.

Cleveland I think. But if they do well that's only going to lead to more Baker Mayfield commercials, and no one wants that.

Buffalo? LOL no.

Three B's: Bills, Browns, Bucs in the NFC because TB12. Zero fucks otherwise, rather agonize over the C's

No one, really. I’ll pull for a team on a game by game basis, but I hate most everyone in the AFC.

NFC too.
This.

I've been a Patriots fan all my life, at one time or another I've hated all the potential AFC playoff teams.

Except the Browns.

I'd say Tennessee, but the way Vrabel ran around the field last year like Spartacus after beating the Patriots, fuck them too.

Agreed about the Bills. Plus they’re in New York.

But I don’t understand the Tennessee love. Aren’t they the team that bounced us out of the playoffs last year and isn’t Vrabel the guy who did the victory lap around Gillette?

Cleveland. Vegas. Bucs. That’s it. And a horrible, ignominious loss for the Steelers in the most painful fashion imaginable. Edit: and the same for KC.

Bills. I have two friends who are from Buffalo and are diehard Bills fans. Plus, I watched the 30 for 30 about the four SB losses and no fan base should have to suffer through that.

And fuck Pittsburgh

I read somewhere that the most popular baseball team in Buffalo is the Yankees, so, eff them.

My in laws are from upstate New York and while they are not Bills fans there are a ton of people in their circle of family, friends and acquaintances who are. They have been some of the most aggressively dumb and obnoxious people in my life over things like deflategate. I cannot fathom ever rooting for the Bills. If they are ever good again I hope they lose four more Super Bowls in a row.

Not Pittsburgh. Not KC. Not Baltimore. Not Buffalo. Not Miami. So I guess Tennessee or Cleveland. Or I suppose the Raiders.

Yeah not Pittsburgh. Never Colts. Or Ravens. Not ever the Dolphins. Not the Chiefs,: I'm fine with their one title but would prefer them to stop right there. so Browns, Bills, Titans in that order I think. I don't have a problem with the Bills, really, and did root for them in four straight Super Bowls.

In the alternative conference I'm OK with Bucs or Cards or Seahawks or Football Team or Saints in that order. Packers, Rams, Giants/Boys um no. Eagles I like better without their fans.

Winter Derrick Henry is one of the most entertaining players in the league, him putting up 6-800 yards through a playoff run would be awesome football.

Bills. Browns. Titans.

Fuck the Chiefs. No back-to-back, no dynasty, no Mahomes GOAT. They need to lose and lose and lose. (I fear they will do the opposite.) Go, Bills!!!!

None of the above. Cleveland, Las Vegas, and Tennessee would be the least offensive in no real order of preference. I despise the rest of the field.

To the extent that I’m rooting for any team with the Patriots eliminated it will not be an AFC team. All NFC the rest of the way for me and I don’t particularly care which NFC team it is.

Couldn’t care less about who comes out of the AFC. I’m still rooting for The GOAT in Tampa.
