The NFL is just three days away. With that said here are my predictions for the regular season!
While I didn't include a playoff bracket, I will include the most important factor of all: the champion. The Ravens will beat the Saints, becoming the first team to have a perfect season in NFL history.
There are definitely some surprising parts of this prediction. Here are some interesting, and subtle, takeaways.
It's the first year with the expanded playoffs, and the Rams get in with an 8-8 record. On the other hand the AFC is stacked. The 7th seed
is the 10-6 Patriots.
In the NFC West, every team is .500 or better! The last time a division didn't have a team with a losing record was 2008, when the NFC
East and the NFC South accomplished the same feat.
Every division has a 12 win team-or better! That has never happened since the expansion to 32 teams.
Three teams have a 1-15 record. There is a lot of contrast in these standings between the top teams and the bottom.
