Athlon Sports Cover 2 Podcast: Official Conference and Playoff Predictions


We’ve had all offseason to think about this, but the time has final come:

Time to make our official conference and playoff picks.

Though Athlon Sports magazines have been on shelves since the summer, the debate over teams and leagues has been ongoing here in our newsroom and our podcast.

Now, however, is when we’ll put our pen to paper — figuratively speaking — on our picks for the season. Athlon’s brain trust of Mitch Light, Braden Gall, David Fox and Steven Lassan picked every division and every conference, plus playoff teams, sleepers and potential Heisman finalists in this rapid-fire edition of the Athlon Sports Cover 2.
