The NFL is just three days away. With that said here are my predictions for the regular season!
While I didn't include a playoff bracket, I will include the most important factor: the champion. The Ravens will beat the Saints, becoming the first team to have a perfect season in NFL history.
There are definitely some surprising parts of this prediction. Here are some interesting, and subtle, takeaways:
-It's the first year with the expanded playoffs, and the Rams get in with an 8-8 record. On the other hand the AFC is stacked. The 7th seed is the 10-6 Patriots.
-In the NFC West, every team is .500 or better. The last time a division didn't have a team with a losing record was 2008, when the NFC East and the NFC South accomplished the same feat.
-Every division has a 12 win team-or better. That has never happened since the expansion to 32 teams.
-Three teams have a 1-15 record. There is a wide gap in these standings between the top and bottom teams.
-The Ravens are going to have the first perfect season in NFL history, going 16-0 and winning the Super Bowl.
