Bold NFL Predictions


Are you ready for some football?  It's always hard to predict what's going to happen between now and February. But we're going to try! Here are five bold predictions for what's going to happen during this unusual NFL season. 1. The Patriots will win the AFC East. Again.  Some pundits in the national media are drinking the Buffalo Bills kool-aid, especially now that Tom Brady is a Tampa Bay Buccaneer, but this division is still the Patriots to lose. Does Buffalo have some nice pieces? Yes. The Bills added receiver Stefon Diggs in the offseason. Their defense is still solid.  Josh Allen does have a big arm but he has a Drew Bledose-like penchant for an inopportune sack or interception.  That said, the Patriots should win 11 games. Cam Newton, is hungry and has a chip on his shoulder. The Pats still have the best secondary in football and Bill Belichick along the sidelines. Their schedule is tough with early-season trips to Seattle and Kansas City, but the Patriots are still the Patriots.  2. Tampa Bay will score 500 points.  Can anybody name a defense in the NFC that can slow down Brady's Bucs? ' I didn't think so.  This Tampa offense is the best bestowed upon TB12 since the 2007 Pats that was a helmet catch away from a perfect season. Their opener against the Saints in New Orleans is guaranteed to be a shootout between Brady and Drew Brees. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are as good a 1-2 receiving punch as their is in the NFL. O.J. Howard and Rob Gronkowski at tight end? Defensive coordinators will have nightmares.  It doesn't hurt the Bucs have LeSean McCoy and Leonard Fournette headlining the backfield.  3. The Dallas Cowboys will not win the NFC East.  Sorry Cowboys fans, but it's not happening. Every year, the Cowboys are overhyped the way the Philadelphia 76ers are by NBA pundits, and every year, Cowboys fans are left with playoff exits or 8-8 finishes. This organization hasn't gotten past the Divisional Round since a former Arkansas Razorback was President and Steve Urkel was bringing laughter into living rooms.  Is their offense potent? Absolutely. But their defense will give up some points, And with the NFC loaded with dynamic offense in Tampa, New Orleans, Seattle and San Francisco, I don't see the Cowboys getting past the Wild Card round at best.  Philadelphia will find a way to win the NFC East again.  4. Aaron Rodgers will be done in Green Bay after this season.  Rodgers has had a great career in Green Bay, but he was understandably a bit perturbed when the Packers drafted Jordan Love last spring.  Rodgers has put up great numbers, with only one Super Bowl championship to show for it. He's signed through the 2023 season, when he'll turn 40 years old. Trading Rodgers after this season would give the Packers some cap flexibility and a change to reload under Love.  5. Super Bowl LV?  Tampa Bay versus Baltimore.  No team in NFL history has hosted a Super Bowl in its stadium. Super Bowl LV is at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium. If Brady were to win a seventh championship, this would be the most poetic of fashions.  Tampa Bay will defeat Seattle to win the NFC, and Jackson's Ravens will outduel Newton's Pats to take the AFC.  Let's finish this off with some division winners/Wild Card's, leading off with the AFC. Bear in mind the playoffs are now featuring seven teams per conference, with only the No. 1 seed earning a first-round bye. AFC EAST: Patriots NORTH: Ravens SOUTH: Texans WEST: Chiefs WILD CARDS: Titans. Steelers. Bills.  NFC EAST: Eagles NORTH: Vikings SOUTH: Buccaneers WEST: Seahawks WILD CARDS: 49ers. Saints. Packers.
