My 2015 NFL Predictions

  Every year since I have written for the NFPost I have done a season prediction. Last year I was awful as I had New Orleans winning the NFC South and Chicago winning the NFC North. I also had Cincinnati winning the Super Bowl. Yes, I know…it was bad! I also did a Sunday preview with my predictions of three to five games going against the spread. While I don’t bet in real life, I did OK for my first attempt. I finished the season, including the playoffs, with a 35 and 32 record against the spread.  We will run the feature again starting this Sunday morning. If you don’t win, don’t blame me….as I am a novice. I may be a professional evaluator, but I’m not a professional gambler! AFC EAST New England Patriots – I am picking the Pats for two reasons, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. Until someone else proves otherwise, they are the best combo in the AFC. That said, I think Buffalo will give the Pats a run for their money. AFC North Cincinnati Bengals – Marvin Lewis is a great coach and Andy Dalton is maturing as a player. It will be a tough battle as Baltimore and Pittsburgh will give the Bengals tough competition. AFC South Indianapolis Colts – Andrew Luck just keeps getting better and easily is the best quarterback in the AFC South. A top quarterback almost always leads a club to the playoffs. AFC West San Diego Chargers – I feel this is just might be the year for Phillip Rivers and company. Kansas City, not Denver will be their closest challenger. AFC Wild Cards Buffalo and Kansas City. The Bills will challenge the Patriots and the Chiefs will challenge the Chargers. Baltimore will also challenge for a playoff spot. I don’t think Denver or Pittsburgh have enough this year to make the playoffs. John Elway will regret not keeping John Fox. AFC Champion Like I said above, until someone proves otherwise, the Patriots are the best the AFC has to offer. NFC East Philadelphia Eagles – The NFC East is a weak division. Dallas should give the Eagles their biggest challenge but in the end they just don’t have enough. Their once powerful run game won’t be as strong as it was a year ago. NFC North Green Bay Packers – I don’t think Green Bay will run away with the title as both Detroit and Minnesota have talented clubs, but with Aaron Rodgers, they are the class of the North. NFC South Carolina Panthers - As we saw last year, this isn’t a very strong division. In reality, every team is in rebuild mode. Ron Rivera is the best coach and that will prove the difference. NFC West  Seattle Seahawks – San Francisco isn’t what it once was and may finish last. St. Louis will be improved but not enough to challenge. While I like Arizona, I don’t think Carson Palmer gets through the season. Seattle is by far the class of the division and the NFC. NFC Wildcards Detroit and Dallas – for years, the NFC had the deeper conference. I don’t see that right now. While I don’t think Dallas is that good, they play in the NFC East which is weak. The only other team that I feel will challenge is Arizona and that is only if Carson Palmer can stay healthy. NFC Champion Seattle – I know, a boring pick but they are clearly the best team in the NFC right now. The Super Bowl will be a repeat of last year’s. World Champion Seattle – they will do enough to beat the Patriots this year. Right now, Seattle may be the best organization in the NFL. Follow Greg on Twitter @greggabe
