2016 is off and running. It begins with the NFL playoffs and will end with a newly elected President of the United States.
So in the spirit of election season and playoff time, let's see which presidential candidate matches with the playoff teams.
Heads Up: I am not a political expert. This is for fun. Don't take it too seriously, because I think you will enjoy them.
Denver Broncos: Ben Carson
-Like Dr. Carson's campaign, nobody really knows what the Broncos will do in the playoffs. Will they go far? Will they fall out in the Divisional round?
New England Patriots: Donald Trump
-It only seemed fitting the Patriots get the honor of being compared to Trump. Loud, annoying and like the Donald, many of us look at New England currently and feel like they won't get far, they might just win this whole thing!
Cincinnati Bengals: John Kasich
-Both hail from Ohio, and while they seem to have potential, they might be making an early exit.
Houston Texans: Rand Paul
-Both are here to stir things up, but they just get shouted down by a team like the Patriots (remember who the Patriots are?).
Kansas City Chiefs: Marco Rubio
-The Chiefs will either build on their momentum or fall flat and be out in the wild card round.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Ted Cruz
-Love them or hate them, they might be there near the end.
Carolina Panthers: Hillary Clinton
-Just on paper, they appear most likely to win going in. They can be beat, with most of the teams having their own weaknesses, it makes them look better.
Arizona Cardinals: Chris Christie
-Will they? Won't They? At times it can feel like a bridge to nowhere with both.
Minnesota Vikings: Mike Huckabee
-They're in it, but you have a gut feeling that it's not gonna work out.
Washington Redskins: Bernie Sanders
-Both attract attention in interesting ways, and we might be wondering why they are still in their respected campaigns.
Green Bay Packers: Jeb Bush
-They both have the name. They both have the reputation, but they are in trouble right now.
Seattle Seahawks: Marco Rubio
-I know, I know. I used Rubio twice because I ran out of other candidates that compared to Seattle. Don't count them out.
