First of all, here's a sneak peak at the final standings:
Eagles over Patriots in the Superbowl
Other fearless predictions:
Besides Peyton Manning, another top tier quarterback will miss much of the season due to injury.
Of the teams that are expected to be improved (Lions, Rams, Buccaneers), one will fall flat and finish last.
Of the teams that are expected to be elite (Patriots, Steelers, Chargers, Eagles, Packers, Saints, Falcons), one will greatly disappoint and struggle most of the season.
There will be one team that will come out of nowhere and do extremely well, defying all the odds with players experts thought to be inferior.
One and only one rookie quarterback will have a successful season.
Scoring will be down this year. The new kickoff rule and the short preseason will be the reason.
There will be a renewed emphasis of the running game for many teams in the middle of the season as many complex passing schemes fail.
At the end of the season, I'll go over these and see how I did.
