It’s that time again. The season is beginning, so we fast forward to the end.

Here are the PFT staff picks for playoff trees, playoff outcomes, and Super Bowl winner.

Only one is picking a repeat champion, but three of us have Tampa Bay getting back to the Super Bowl. Three have picked the Chiefs to win it all. One of us has the Packers, and one of us picks the Bills.

Last year, one of us got it right. I only mention that because it was me.

Check out all of the picks below.
