San Fransisco 13-3
Seattle 13-3
Arizona 10-6

That's just the way it turned out when I quickly went through the schedule below. Give it a go. It will be interesting to compare the averages. (site below) Try not to mess with the results, just click each game as you think it would unfold.

Both Indy & Houston predictions are pretty far-fetched. Colts D isn't good enough to win 14 (or their offense as good as they might be) and Texans D will manage to win 3 games on their own. Everything else I mostly agree with.

Indianapolis has a cake walk schedule.

Yeah but I still don't think they win more than 12 and here's my results for fun comparing -

AFC East
NE 11-5
NYJ 7-9
BUF 6-10
MIA 5-11

North
CIN 9-7
PIT 9-7
BAL 8-8
CLE 6-10

South
IND 10-6
HOU 9-7
JAX 5-11
TEN 3-13

West
DEN 12-4
KC 8-8
SD 7-9
OAK 3-13

NFC East
PHI 9-7
NYG 8-8
WAS 8-8
DAL 7-9

North
GB 12-4
DET 9-7
CHI 8-8
MIN 4-12

South
NO 11-5
TB 8-8
ATL 7-9
CAR 7-9

West
SF 13-3
SEA 12-4
AZ 8-8
STL 7-9

You know my NFC East outcome is realistic but I'm sure I'll be off by a couple games on some teams. Pretty fun prediction selector.
I think it's gonna be an incredibly competitive year full of tie-breakers, upsets, and a shocking return of the Steelers. We're in for some great games from both conferences.

NFC
(1) 49ers (14-2)
(2) Saints (13-3)
(3) Bears (11-5; Division tie-breaker)
(4) Eagles (10-6)
(5) Seahawks (11-5; tie-breaker gained from week one against GB)
(6) Packers (11-5)

AFC
(1) Patriots (13-3; tie-breaker gained from week 9 against DEN)
(2) Broncos (13-3)
(3) Colts (11-5)
(4) Ravens (10-6; Division tiebreaker)
(5) Steelers (10-6)
(6) Chargers (9-7; narrowly acing the Chiefs out)

Minnesota - 3-13 (0-6 in division)

NFC South

New Orleans - 12-4 (4-2 in division) 3rd seed
Carolina - 10-6 (5-1 in division) 5th seed
Atlanta - 9-7 (3-3 in division)
Tampa Bay - 0-16 (0-6 in division) LOL

NFC West

San Francisco - 13-3 (5-1 in division) 1st seed
Seattle - 10-6 (4-2 in division) 6th seed
St. Louis - 9-7 (2-4 in division)
Arizona - 9-7 (1-5 in division)

AFC East

New England - 12-4 (6-0 in division) 3rd seed
Miami - 6-10 (4-2 in division)
Buffalo - 3-13 (2-4 in division)
NY Jets - 0-16 (0-6 in division) LOL

AFC North

Pittsburgh - 13-3 (4-2 in division) 1st seed
Cincinnati - 11-5 (4-2 in division) 6th seed
Baltimore - 10-6 (4-2 in division) miss playoffs
Cleveland - 2-14 (0-6 in division)

AFC South

Indianapolis - 13-3 (6-0 in division) 2nd seed
Tennessee - 5-11 (3-3 in division)
Houston - 3-13 (2-4 in division)
Jacksonville - 2-14 (1-5 in division)

Worst division in football.

AFC West

Denver - 12-4 (5-1 in division) 4th seed
San Diego - 11-5 (4-2 in division) 5th seed
Kansas City - 10-6 (3-3 in division) miss playoffs
Oakland - 5-11 (0-6 in division)

Obviously, two 0-16 teams is unlikely, but I didn't even realize I had never picked either of them to win a single game.

Right? It's kinda funny if you don't keep track of the records and just pick the winners/losers each week. And I've done the thing 3 different times and came up with 3 different results. lol Generally the same each time but I had Indy going undefeated once.

The 30th? English, are you posting...from the future?

Nice! We're almost on the exact same page. I also got the Ravens and Steelers back in the playoffs, but I got the Chiefs going 9-7 and barely sneaking past the Chargers.

I find it tough to say that we win 14 games... 11-12 for us this season I think.

Unless we drop a couple games that we shouldn't, I'd say 14-2 is very possible.

Yeah, I think the Steelers are gonna come back with a vengeance, and John Harbaugh is too good of a coach to lose two straight seasons (Superbowl/contracts just got to their heads, like it will with Seattle). I think Seattle won't cut it under that grueling road schedule, and they could lose the division after we sweep them.

The only team that scares me most in the NFC is the Saints, I think we face them in the NFC Championship this year.

I agree with this re Pitt - I think the Steelers are going to be in the play-offs this year and be better than expected. I also think the Eagles and Saints are going to be very good. The NFC will be much more than the Niners v Hawks. Tampa also looks to be a sleeper team that could rise up.

The reason I am not giving a prediction for the Rams is I honestly have no idea how they will play this year. They have added some talent, have a lot of the needed pieces and GW now as DC. But we still have Bradford, and a young team that played with amazing undiscipline at times last year. Just no idea what to expect.

Overall, I think it will swing one way or the other - either a 4 win season, or a 10+ win season.

For the AFC, I think the Chargers are a team that will be much better than anticipated. I think they surpass the Chiefs and get into the play-offs again on a wild card. They were playing good at the end of the season last year, and with Flowers now on the secondary - I think they do well.

Yep, let me shake the magic 8 ball.....it says: "Chiefs season not looking so well".
