So here we are, the first gameday of the new season: what a great time for everyone to layout their playoff predictions and maps, and claim bragging rights at the end of the season. If I was cleverer I'd come up with some sort of game or point system (probably easy enough, maybe we can revisit it at the end of the season) but for now consider this a dumping ground for everyone's predictions. If you like this idea or think this might be fun, go ahead and rec it so it stays up. And now my predictions after the jump, add yours in the comments!
Other Predictions: Texans will compete until the final 2 weeks of the season, the Dolphins will lose a tie-breaker to the Pats, the Steelers will do worse after Big Ben returns. The Bills will be the worst team in the AFC.
Other Predictions: The worst team in the NFC East will win 7 games. Brett Favre doesn't miss a start, but he doesn't finish at least 2 games. The Lions won't suck. The Bears will be the worst team in the north, it will be Martz deja vu, trying to run his offense with a line that can't protect 7-step drops. Matt Moore is the next Tony Romo. The Niners win 10 games but are still the worst division winner.
AFC Wild Card:
Patriots at Ravens - Ravens win
Raiders at Jets - Jets win
Jets at Colts - Colts win
Ravens at Chargers - Ravens win (poor Norv, probably gets fired)
Ravens at Colts - Colts win
NFC Wild Card:
Vikings at 49ers - 49ers win (dare I say this ends Favre's career - permanently)
Falcons at Cowboys - Cowboys win
49ers at Saints - Saints win
Cowboys at Packers - Packers win
Saints at Packers - Packers win
Colts beat Packers 34-28
