FOOTBAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALL predictions in one sentence or less, as per tradition.
( * for wild cards)
Patriots – Yeah.
Dolphins – Not an inspiring bunch behind the perennial leader.
Bills – Might not be terrible, depends on Manuel.
Jets – This, on the other hand, will be hilariously bad.
Bengals – I’m not happy about it, because Dalton sucks, but they’re still the best.
Ravens – Hoping for some Ray Rice karma here.
Steelers – Feels like a 7-9 season.
Browns – Jason Whitlock’s “Johnny Bench” nickname for Manziel is the greatest thing.
Colts – Could be 10-6, but still the class of the division.
Texans* – Fitzpatrick being the QB is frightening for them, though.
Titans – Hard to see them getting much better.
Jaguars – Hard to see them getting much worse.
Broncos – Probably not as dominant as a year ago.
Chargers* – It’s less that they’re better…
Chiefs – …and more that the Chiefs will be worse.
Raiders – Another couple of years of awful football awaits.
Eagles – Fun to watch, and mostly good.
Giants – They zig when everyone thinks they’ll zag.
Cowboys – That defense… woof.
Redskins – Trying to make RGIII into a pocket passer seems like an odd fit.
Bears – Sorry, Dennis.
Packers* – Always seem to get hurt, lost some of the offense.
Lions – All sizzle, no steak.
Vikings – Upward trending, but a few high fences to leap.
Saints – Though it’ll be close.
Falcons* – Back in black, and hopefully not as snakebitten with injuries.
Buccaneers – Sneaky good late last year.
Panthers – Lost a lot of key contributors.
Seahawks – A really, really good team, and it kills me to say that.
49ers – Feel like Harbaugh starts to wear on them this year.
Cardinals – A Carson Palmer team almost made the playoffs, and I’m not sure how it happened.
Rams – Bradford done, and so are they, even with a good defense.
