Lets make predictions!

June 6, 2012

Hello NFL Lovers,

Recently in the NFL there are no major news stories. The only thing to look forward to at this point in football is for  Week 1 of  the NFL to start. So I decided to go over all eight divisions in the National Football League, and make predictions for the division winners.

So lets take a look at the AFC West Division. This division is pretty interesting. Because, it has three very talented quarterbacks in the division. Former four time NFL MVP is the best in the division. Followed by Phillip Rivers of the Chargers, and then Carson Palmer of the Raiders. Some say Carson Palmer is past his prime, but I think he will surprise a lot of people in the league. The Kansas City Chiefs are a young, and dangerous team. But, without a start quarterback they will go no where. The Kansas City Chiefs will finish no better than fourth, especially since they have to rely on Matt Cassel. They will finish the season with a 6-10 record. The Oakland Raiders will be a surprise team, but firing head coach Hue Jackson was a mistake. They finish the season at 8-8. The San Diego Chargers will have a comeback season. Expect Phillip Rivers to have a MVP type of season, and help lead the Chargers to a 9-7 record, and just miss the playoffs. The Chargers will have to clean house(removing general manager A.J. Smith, and Norv Turner from the head coaching position). The Denver Broncos will win their division, led by four time MVP Peyton Manning. Peyton Manning will get the Broncos deep into the playoffs. The Broncos will finish the season with a 11-5 record.

Moving on to the AFC East Division. The Miami Dolphins will continue their struggle. The Dolphins will finish the season at 4-12, and finish last in the division. The New York Jets will continue their decline, early in the season. The season will lead the Jets to some controversy, since the Jets will replace starting quarterback Mark Sanchez, in favor of Tim Tebow. The move will not help the Jets season much, since they will miss the playoffs for the second consecutive season. The Buffalo Bills will shock the NFL. The teams offense will have a top-15 season, while the defense will play like a top 10 defense, thanks to the addition of defensive end, Mario Williams. The Bills will enter the playoffs with a 10-6 record. The New England Patriots will continue their dominance. They will win the division, and end the season with a 12-4 record.

The AFC North is the toughest division in football. The Cleveland Browns will continue to be awful. They will finish the season as a 3-13 football team. The Cincinnati Bengals surprise the football world last season. But, Andy Dalton will go through the sophmore slump. They will miss the playoffs barely, with a 9-7 record.  The Pittsburgh Steelers will finish second in the division, with an impressive 11-5 record. The Baltimore Ravens will be the best football team in the AFC conference. The Ravens will finish the season at a 13-3 record.

The AFC South will showcase the number one pick of the 2012 NFL Draft. Andrew Luck will see the difficulty of the National Football League. Andrew Luck will lead the Colts to a four win season, and finish dead last in the division. The Jacksonville Jaguars will have a very impressive defense. But, the offense will make strides. The Jaguars will finish the season at 6-10. The Tennessee Titans will play great football, but will finish the season at 8-8. Look for the Titans to start Jake Locker toward the end of the season. The Houston Texans will be a dangerous team. They will finish the season at a 12-4 record, and be the number two seed in the AFC.

Moving onto the NFC West division. This will be the worst division in football. The Arizona Cardinals will finish the season at 3-13. They will struggle, since they do not have a good quarterback. The St. Louis Rams will improve with head coach Jeff Fisher. They will finish the season at 5-11. The Seattle Seahawks will play really hard, for head coach Pete Carroll. But, they will finish the season at 8-8. The 49ers shocked the football world last season. The 49ers will finish first in the weak NFC West division, with a 10-6 record.

Moving onto the toughest division, the NFC North. This division hosts the best quarterbacks in any division with MVP Aaron Rogers, Matthew Stafford, and Jay Cutler. This will be the most exciting division in football. The Minnesota Vikings will finish the season with a 3-13 record. The Vikings need to bring talent to the defense. They should trade Jared Allen for some draft picks. The Detroit Lions impressed everyone in the league, last season. But, last season was a fluke. The Lions will barely miss the playoffs at a 9-7 record. The Packers are favored to win the division, but I see them as a solid team. The defense will lead them to their doom. They finish with a 11-5 record. The Chicago Bears will be the best team in football. The additions of Brandon Marshall, and the return of Jay Cutler will make the Bears a scary team. They will finish the season with a 13-3 record.

The NFC South has exciting young quarterbacks. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will finish the season at a 5-11 record. The Carolina Panthers will be an exciting team. Cam Newton will lead the Panthers to a 8-8 record, and finish third in the division. The New Orleans Saints will struggle. The Saints went through too much controversy in the off season. Drew Brees will lead the Saints to an 8-8 record. The Atlanta Falcons will win the NFC South. Matt Ryan leads the Falcons to a 11-5 record.

The NFC East will be an exciting division. The Super Bowl winning New York Giants, will have a poor record. Expect the Giants to finish with a 7-9 record. The Washington Redskins will make strides with Robert Griffin III. RG3 will lead them to a 8-8 record. The Philidelphia Eagles will have a great season. They will finish with a 12-4 record, and be the second seed in the NFC conference.

This is the off season. We can make decisions all we want. I may look really intelligent after the season, however I could look really dumb. That is the game with predictions. Post comments, and tell me what teams will be division winners.
