Top 2023 NFL playoff predictions
One of the NFL playoff bracket predictions from the model: It says the 49ers only have a 25.4% chance of winning the 2023 Super Bowl, the third-lowest percentage of the teams remaining in the field. There are plenty of reasons to like the Niners. They have won 12 straight games and rookie quarterback Brock Purdy, surrounded by a loaded roster, is playing well above expectations.
But the model has also factored in an extremely challenging trip to Philadelphia for the NFC Championship Game 2023 and the fact that the Niners are underdogs for the first time since last October. The 10-game winning streak San Francisco ended the regular season on came only against teams that didn’t make it past Super Wild Card Weekend. The last time the Niners faced an elite team, they were blown out by the Chiefs in October. The model likes two other teams’ chances to win it all more, making the 49ers a team to fade in NFL bracket picks. See which teams to back right here.
