Predicting The NFL Season

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?!

Posted on

Below are predictions for the divisions in the National Football League. This is just predicting the divisional winners and the wild card berths (noted with an asterisk *), no predictions beyond the regular season.

Don't like what you see? Give me some snark in the comment section!

AFC East

1. New England Patriots (11 - 5)

I just can't see the Patriots falling off just yet. Brady still has a bit more left in his tank.

2. Miami Dolphins (9 - 7)*

Tannehill improves off Miami's almost playoff year last year and takes Miami into the playoffs. They put the Incognito mess behind them.

3. New York Jets (7 - 9)

Geno Smith improves, but the offense still isn't good enough to push the team into the playoffs.

4. Buffalo Bills (2 - 14)

Sorry Bills fans, this year doesn't look too pretty like the past several.I believe there are some prime QB prospects in the next draft, though.

AFC North

1. Cincinnati Bengals (11 - 5)

Dalton proves his worth and finds success in Hue Jackson's scheme.

2. Pittsburgh Steelers (9 - 7)

Steelers got younger on defense, but the CB position is still a big worry. Todd Haley holds back the Pittsburgh offense enough for them to just miss the playoffs.

3. Ravens (7 - 9)

Baltimore struggles out of the gate and just can't dig themselves out of those early struggles. Steve Smith proves he's still got enough left in the tank by having a near career year.

4. Cleveland Browns (6 - 10)

The Browns have an incredible defense that will help them win games this year, but their offense is the epitome of the word 'meh.' If Cleveland had Josh Gordon (or a #1 WR), I'd say they'd be closer to 8-9 wins minimum.

AFC South

1. Indianapolis Colts (10 - 6)

Andrew Luck hype is real. The defense improves a little bit, but the Colts' woeful O-line costs them a few games this year.

2. Houston Texans (8 - 8)

The Texans reach .500 in spite of their QB situation. It also doesn't hurt that they play the Jags twice and the Titans twice.

3. Washington Redskins (6 - 10)

I hope not, but I believe RG3 will try to do too much and end up hurting himself once again. Cousins comes in and isn't the backup everyone thought he was.

3. San Francisco 49ers (7 - 9)

I really should put the 49ers where the Cardinals are, but I just think that there is too much bad juju surrounding the 49ers this season. I hope not since Jim Harbaugh is a joy to watch, but it just feels that way.
