We are officially two days away from the beginning of the NFL season. Here’s a division breakdown of what team will win their division and who has a chance at the wildcard spots! I don’t know about you guys but I am ready for some football!!!!!!!!!
NFC North: This by far is the hardest division to call with the Bears going through some serious offensive upgrades and Jay Cutler hopefully being healthy this season-the Bears could give the favorite Packers a run for their money. Of course you can’t count out Detroit and their high-powered offense, but their defensive, lack of discipline and youth could all count against them in their first season with real expectations. Vikings are clearly rebuilding mode and who knows where Adrian Peterson will be this year coming off a tough ACL tear. With all that being said this division belongs to the ….
PACKERS!!!!!!! Aaron Rodgers is just too good. But I do have my Bears as a Wildcard and not the Lions.
NFC EAST: Again this is another division that is impossible to call. Each year an NFC East team on paper looks like the odds on favorite to win the Superbowl. Though the Giants won it last year their road to Superbowl was not what was predicted. With that being said you can’t count the Giants out they always seemed to be in it even when their not in it. This year is really make or break for the Cowboys-however this year they are not nearly as talented as years before and with every veteran receiving option hurt it maybe a long season for the Tony Romo and the Cowboys. The Eagles are mind-boggling frustrating they’re so hard to predict although they had a disappointing season last year they showed sparks of what they could become. The biggest issue holding the Eagles back is Michael Vick and his injury problems no team can develop a consistently winning formula when their quarterback is in and out of every other play. Finally, you have the Redskins who will be competitive and exciting this year with the addition of RG3, but I can’t place too many expectations on a rookie quarterback. So who will win this division…….Giants- but who really knows. A NFC wild card will come from this division!!!!
NFC SOUTH: This division will be closely watched because of the Saints bounty gate scandal. The Saints have a good team, but losing your head coach for a year can only be a rally cry for so long. The Falcons are boring but good enough to win the division, the Panther are still a year or two away from being a legit playoff contender, and the Bucs have a rookie coach and just aren’t that talented. The Division winner for the NFC South….Falcons.
NFC WEST: This division probably the easiest to call-the 49ers should win this division with no problem. Seahawks could’ve made waves, but starting Russell Wilson is somewhat of a puzzling move. Winner of this division will be the 49ERS.
AFC NORTH: Steelers will win this division-the organization is too well run. Ravens are older and hurt on defense with T-Suggs not playing to at least the 6th game. The Ravens will probably be a wild card team this year. The Browns and the Bengals are too young to really compete with the powerhouses of this division. -Steelers win without much competition
AFC EAST: How the hell did the Patriots get the easy schedule again. Seriously their division is next to terrible and they only play 4 team that made the playoffs last year!!!! This is again a road paved in gold for the golden boy Tom Brady to capture that elusive 4th Superbowl ring. The Jets are a joke -I’m sorry that team offensively is terrible and Rex Ryan is out of a job this year if they don’t win-which they won’t. Bills are still the Bills, and after watching Hardknocks I’d be surprised if the Dolphins win 4 games. -Patriots -the division is theirs to lose.
AFC South: Texans have a good defense-their QB Schaub and WR Andre Johnson will finally be healthy. Not much competition from Jacksonville, Colts with rookie Luck, or Tennessee with young QB Jake Locker. Texans this division is theirs if injuries don’t decimate them again.
AFC WEST: Peyton’s back!!!!! Peyton Manning makes his return to the NFL in a Broncos uniform nonetheless. I love Peyton Manning -in my humble opinion he is the greatest quarterback of all time. With all that being said I still think the Chargers are the best team. I don’t know if this is the year where it will finally click for this team and they’ll put it all together to make a serious playoff run, but looking at Chiefs and the Raiders, the Chargers have the most intact team from last year and should be able to hit the ground running when the season starts. However, I would not be surprised if a wild card team does come from this division. But for the division win I’m going with the Chargers!!!!
*As always who you got!!!!!
