The NFL Season starts Thursday!!! Might as well get the predictions out of the way…

Remembers kids. These picks are LOCKS!!!! Bet your house! Bet your dog! Bet everything! What’s the worst that can happen? You lose your family?

 

 

AFC

 

Division Winners

EAST
New England Patriots –They’ve been the class of this division since… forever. They still are.

NORTH
Pittsburgh Steelers –Not sure if this is more of a vote for the Steelers or a vote against the rest of the division.

WEST
Denver Broncos –They’re on a mission this year.

SOUTH
Indianapolis Colts –Is this the year that the Colts get to sit at the grown-ups table???

 

Wild Cards

San Diego Chargers –Interested to see how the offense does without Ken Whisenhunt. I still like them in a weak AFC.

Miami Dolphins –If this offense worked in Philly, why can’t it work in Miami? I expect Ryan Tannehill and Mike Wallace to have big years.

 

Playoffs

Wild Card Round
Colts (3) over Dolphins (6)
Chargers (5) over Steelers (4)

Divisional Round
Broncos (1) over Chargers (5)
Colts (3) over Patriots (2)

AFC Championship
Broncos over Colts

 

 

NFC

 

Division Winners

EAST
Philadelphia Eagles –Year 2 with Chip Kelly and Nick Foles at the helm should yield even bigger dividends in a weak East

NORTH
Detroit Lions –This is finally their year. Adding Golden Tate will help, but bringing in Head Coach Jim Caldwell will get these talented misfits going in the right direction.

WEST
Seattle Seahawks –All systems go for the Champs. Will Percy Harvin stay healthy?

SOUTH
New Orleans Saints -The unquestioned class of the NFC South.

 

Wild Cards
Green Bay Packers –Having the best quarterback in football will always get you into the Playoffs.
Arizona Cardinals –Wide Receiver Michael Floyd is about to burst onto the national scene. That defense ain’t no joke either.

 

Playoffs

Wild Card Round
Eagles (3) over Cardinals (6)
Lions (4) over Packers (5)

Divisional Round
Saints (1) over Lions (4)
Seahawks (2) over Eagles (3)

NFC Championship
Saints over Seahawks

 

 

SUPER BOWL
Broncos -45
Saints -31

 

This year’s Broncos remind me a lot of the San Antonio Spurs. They are an old, veteran team that will be on a mission from Week 1. They were humbled by Seattle last year in the Super Bowl and I believe that will be their fuel towards winning this year’s Lombardi Trophy.
