I will just do AFC for now,

 

This is early as I will put in bold = early. Things could be tweaked after pre-season but I will predict this:

 

AFC East

Bills win the division with a 13-4 record, gets #1 seed.

 

AFC South 

Colts win the division with a 11-6 record, gets #2 seed, Colts will get tiebreaker over KC due to head to head win.

 

AFC West 

Chiefs win the division with a 11-6 record, gets #3 seed, they will get the tiebreaker over the Chargers due to divisional record.

 

AFC North

Cincy wins the division with a 10-7 record, gets #4 seed, they will get the tiebreaker over the Ravens due to divisional record.

 

3 AFC WildCards

Chargers = #5 seed with an 11-6 record.

 

Broncos = #6 seed with a 10-7 record - tiebreakers will help them.

 

Ravens = #7 seed with a 10-7 record - tiebreakers will help them.

 

- The AFC is so deep I can see the Titans, Patriots, and Raiders all going 10-7 and missing the playoffs. Where the conference will even out is, teams like the Texans and Jets will probably only win 3 or 4 games. If Watson doesn't play at all for the Browns, that is a 5 win team at best. My bold pick = Mike Tomlin will have his first losing season as head coach of the Steelers, I have them at 8-9. 

 

So we are looking at:

#1 Bills

#2 Colts

#3 Chiefs

#4 Cincy

#5 Chargers

#6 Broncos

#7 Ravens

 

My AFC Title Game = Colts at Bills

 

Unfortunately I have the Bills winning the AFC but we could beat them. We smoked them in the Regular Season last season with Wentz at QB.

To follow this up, there is a lot of hype behind the Dolphins. I just don't trust Tua, I see them at 9-8 and missing the playoffs. I have a sneaky feeling the Ravens snag that 7th spot because Lamar is playing for a contract and I can see him staying healthy. It is going to be a deep and good conference. There are a lot of average to bad teams in the NFC outside of the Bucs, Rams, and Packers.

Breaking news:

 

Deshawn Watson suspended for the 1st 6 games. The NFL said they probably won't appeal as the Browns feel the suspension is fair. Not sure if Goodell thinks this is too light?? I thought he would get 8 so I was close. 6 games still wrecks their season somewhat but Watson I am sure is breathing a sigh of relief as it could've been 8 games or even the whole season.

 

I have the Browns now at around 8 or 9 wins which won't get them in the playoffs IMO.

    • What the heck happened to KJ Hamler?
    • He's a rookie HC and it's probably too early to make some huge proclamation but so far so good. He's checking a lot of the boxes I want our HC to be checking and the areas of the team that most depend on his expertise are doing above expectations based on the talent we have. How are we scoring so much with Minshew play at the putrid level he's been playing for most of the season is beyond me.    I don't know if it's still honeymoon time and I'm not focusing too much on his mistakes(because just like any coach he will make mistakes too), but I never feel worried or anxious about what he's going to call offensively. Purely subjectively, his playcalling just ... feels right. It feels like the offense is in rhythm, feels like he's switching things around and keeping the opponent on their heels. It never feels to me like the opponent knows exactly what we are going to run and is ready to stop it play after play... like the situation was last year.    His offensive coaching hires have been great too... the OL seems to be back on track with the new OL coach(props to him too BTW - finally was able to stop the slide of otherwise talented unit). He seems to be running a good operation with his assistants and QB coach. Just... in general the Colts seem like a well coached team. A team that you will have to work hard to beat, even if our talent is probably not at the level of some of the current juggernauts in the league.    With all that said... I really hope Ballard doesn't come away from this year with the impression that the offense is fine and he doesn't need to invest in it. NO! On the contrary. When you have what seems like a great offensive mind, you don't sit on it - you go get the guy the best talent you can find in order to make that offense not just good(which it is right now), but dominant. Go get a legit no. 1 receiver if you can... go get a TE who can stretch the field and/or make plays after the catch... hell... if you love a RG in the draft... spend a 3d rounder to totally solidify that line and eliminate what seems to be the only weakness/question mark or give the line some much needed depth. Just... in general... don't be complacent with the offense. 
    • I think Kelly will come back next year health permitting.  He is due to make the most that he ever has and its quite a bit more than every season he played besides this one.
    • Like I said above, unless there is a major injury to a team I picked, I am keeping everything the same this week. I got burned this past week switching my Falcons/Saints pick. That won't happen again. Carr plays great against us, then on Sunday he played like Curtis Painter. Carr can go suck a fat egg 
    • Broncos are hot but Stroud is playing out of his mind, and they are at home. If that was at Denver, I would have took the Broncos. As long as we don't turn the ball over, I think we beat the Titans by at least a TD.
