I went through the season and picked a winner for each game. I don't know if I like the results I got, but I also don't want to go back and start cherry picking games to get my desired results. Anyway, this is what I got...

AFC:

New England(2)
Miami(6)
New York
Buffalo

Denver(3)
San Diego
Kansas City
Oakland

Indianapolis(1)
Jacksonville(5)
Tennessee
Houston

Cincinnatti(4)
Pittsburgh
Baltimore
Cleveland

NFC:

Dallas(3)
Washington(5)
Philadelphia
New York

Seattle(1)
Arizona
San Francisco
St. Louis

Carolina(2)
Atlanta(6)
Tampa Bay
New Orleans

Minnesota(4)
Chicago
Green Bay
Detroit

I know I overprojected Seattle, but they'll still win. I'm probably also over-favoring Miami, and one of the tweaks I'd make would be to go back and switch their wildcard with the Steelers. Washington and Dallas tied and I didn't feel like working through tie breakers, so they are interchangeable.

As for the playoffs...

Denver over Miami
Jacksonville over Cincinatti
Indianapolis over Jacksonville
Denver over New England
Indianapolis over Denver


Dallas over Atlanta
Washington over Minnesota
Carolina over Washington
Dallas over Seattle
Carolina over Dallas

Carolina over Indianapolis


whatever

Note - I am a homer and parity rules. If you can't be optimistic for your team going into the season, then what hope will you ever have?

Super Bowl
Giants over Patriots: I hate the QB of the Giants, but, for someone giving me a free bet at 18-1, I'm going directly in the tank for them. Free Money > Hatred of the Manning Family. Perfect world of course is Manning goes down early and the Hefty Lefty from Kentucky carries the Giants to victory.

AFC East:

1. Patriots
2. Dolphins
3. Bills
4. Jets

Pats and Dolphins are the class of this division. You really can't bet against Brady, and I'm wondering how Daunte will do this year. The Bills defense will be improved and keep them in games, and they have two spark plugs on offense in McGahee and Evans. The Jets better hope Chad doesn't go down again, because Ramsey looked bad this pre-season.

AFC North:

1. Steelers
2. Bengals*
3. Ravens
4. Browns

I think the Bengals can challenge the Steelers this year, but they're not ready to unseat the champs yet. I'm not buying the Browns as much yet, and the Ravens are the wild card (not the playoff) with Steve McNair at QB.

AFC South:

1. Colts
2. Jaguars*
3. Titans
4. Texans

I don't buy the Jags upending the Colts, only because of the Jaguars schedule, which is brutal. I don't think the Texans improved enough to make significant strides this season. The Titans could knock off some contending teams late.

AFC West:

1. Broncos
2. Chiefs
3. Chargers
4. Raiders

Denver still has pretty much the same team that was one win away from the Super Bowl last year. I like Herm Edwards, and he'll keep the Chiefs in contention. It will be interesting to watch Philip Rivers play this year. Oakland is still a mess despite the coaching change.


NFC East:

1. Giants
2. Eagles*
3. Redskins
4. Cowboys

Any of these teams could win the division. The T.O factor in Dallas (both on and off the field) could dictate their year. Do the Eagles have enough offensive weapons to contend? Mark Brunell is another year older in Washington, but Al Saunders could have an impact.

NFC Central:

1. Bears
2. Vikings*
3. Packers
4. Lions

The Bears have the league's easiest schedule, so they shouldn't fall. I like Brad Johnson, and he'll do a serviceable job in Minnesota. Favre's last season in green and gold won't be pretty. The Lions and Rod Marinelli will begin the turnaround in Detroit.

NFC South:

1. Panthers
2. Bucs
3. Saints
4. Falcons

The Panthers D is still too good to overlook. Tampa will have some growing pains with Chris Simms. I like the Saints additions of Reggie Bush and Drew Brees. The Falcons will still depend on Vick too much on offense.

NFC West:

1. Seahawks
2. Cardinals
3. Rams
4. 49ers

Seattle should defend their West crown pretty handily. The Cardinals D is now their weak spot, after years of carrying the team. The Rams have a tough schedule (including Panthers, Bears, Broncos) and SF will slowly try to climb out of oblivion.

Vikings over Giants
Bears over Eagles
Pats over Bengals
Jaguars over Broncos

Seahawks over Vikings
Panthers over Bears
Colts over Jaguars
Steelers over Pats

Panthers over Seahawks
Colts over Steelers

Colts over Panthers....I mean, it has to happen eventually, doesn't it?

Can't accurately predict all, but one thing is for certain:

Cincy vs. Seattle in the Super Bowl would make me very, very happy.
