FINALLY! The NFL season is here and that means meaningless NFL predictions make their way onto the timeline.
Right here, right now, I’ve got predictions for:
· Team records
· Postseason predictions
· Breakout players
· Disappointing players
· BOLD predictions
· Which head coaches get fired
So let’s get started…
Eagles: 10-6 (3)
Buccaneers: 12-4 (1)
Saints: 11-5 (5)
Cardinals: 12-4 (2)
Seahawks: 11-5 (6)
49ers: 8-8 (7)
Packers: 10-6 (4)
Dolphins: 10-6 (3)
Bills: 9-7 (6)
Colts: 10-6 (4)
Chiefs: 12-4 (1)
Ravens: 11-5 (2)
Steelers: 11-5 (5)
Browns: 9-7 (7)
Saints (5) @ Packers (4) = Packers win
Seahawks (6) @ Eagles (3) = Eagles win
49ers (7) @ Cardinals (2) = Cardinals win
Packers (4) @ Buccaneers (1) = Buccaneers win
Eagles (3) @ Cardinals (2) = Cardinals win
Cardinals (2) @ Buccaneers (1) = Buccaneers win
Steelers (5) @ Colts (4) = Steelers win
Bills (6) @ Dolphins (3) = Dolphins win
Browns (7) @ Ravens (2) = Browns win
Browns (7) @ Chiefs (1) = Chiefs win
Steelers (5) @ Dolphins (3) = Steelers win
Steelers (5) @ Chiefs (1) = Chiefs win
Super Bowl 55:
Chiefs (1) @ Buccaneers (1) = Chiefs win
MVP: Kyler Murray
OPOY: Russell Wilson
DPOY: Darius Leonard
OROY: Tua Tagovailoa
DROY: Isaiah Simmons
Comeback: Ben Roethlisberger
Coach: Brian Flores
Kyler Murray, Miles Sanders, Marquise “Hollywood” Brown
Kyler Murray: DeAndre Hopkins will be a big reason why, but I believe Murray has the best opportunity to make the biggest second-year-jump we’ve seen with quarterbacks over the years.
Miles Sanders: Eagles are going to ride Miles Sanders all season long, especially with the offensive line in flux.
Marquise “Hollywood” Brown: He has the swagger teams wish they had in all of their players. Brown said he’s gained a lot of muscle this offseason and still didn’t lose any speed. Watchout!
Cam Newton, Derek Carr, Ryan Tannehill
Cam Newton: I don’t see a player as free-spirited as Newton gelling with a coach like Belichick who seems to be the “my way or the highway” type. Newton’s best days are behind him and his body can no longer last a full season.
Derek Carr: This is the year where Jon Gruden gets fed up with Derek Carr, who seems to always try to impress his coach, but gets no love in return.
Ryan Tannehill: He’s a backup quarterback at best. Teams will be a lot more prepared for him this year and he got paid– he’s got nothing to worry about anymore. Tannehill will go back to his old self sooner rather than later.
