The last time a No. 6 seed made it to the Conference Championship round of the NFL playoffs was during the 2010-2011 season. Both the New York Jets and the Green Bay Packers were No. 6 seeds that season and both made it to their respective conference championships. The Packers, memorably, defied the odds to take down the No. 2 seed Chicago Bears and ride the momentum all the way to a Super Bowl victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

This year, the Packers are back with their eyes set on the ultimate prize but as a No. 2 seed. Instead, the Tennessee Titans are the lone Wild Card team still in the race and cannot be counted out with Derrick Henry coming off of his third straight 180-plus-yard performance.

Do our experts think the Titans can continue this wild run of success? Or will the top-seeded teams continue their winning ways?
