Are you ready for some football? The NFL season kicks off Thursday night with the Seattle Seahawks hosting the Green Bay Packers. One of these teams will play in the Super Bowl – read on to find out which team I pick.
Unfortunately, the Thursday game will be televised on KBGF (NBC in Great Falls) which is an analog low power television station. The only time I watch the local NBC station is when football is on because the picture is terrible.
If you follow me on Twitter or read this blog very much, you know that I am a Kansas City Chiefs fan.
Last year we (Chiefs) made the playoffs – and we blew a 28 point lead in the second half against the Colts. So, that makes me wonder if it’s better to not make the playoffs instead of getting in and losing like that. Discuss amongst yourselves. I am still hurting.
There is a ray of sunshine. The Great Falls (MT) Tribune Sports Editor, Scott Mansch, picked the Kansas City Chiefs and the Green Bay Packers to play in the Super Bowl – I hope he was not referring to Super Bowl I.
I have always been pretty bad at predicting who will win each division in the NFL. The last time I picked the division winners was for the 2011 season. There are eight divisions in the NFL. For the 2011 season I picked the winners in just three divisions.
So here goes – I’ve read the stories, checked the schedules, read what the teams and the fans are saying and here are my predictions for the National Football League’s 2014 season:
AFC East: New England
AFC West: Denver
AFC North: Cincinnati
AFC South: Indianapolis
Wild Cards: San Diego, Pittsburgh
I hope the Chiefs get one of the wildcard spots, but they have a tough schedule and it’s either a 7-9 or 8-8 season in 2014.
NFC East: Philadelphia
NFC West: Seattle
NFC North: Green Bay
NFC South: New Orleans
Wild Cards: San Francisco, Carolina
AFC: New England
NFC: Green Bay
Super Bowl Champion:
New England Patriots
– Tom Brady gets his fourth ring and joins Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw as the only QBs with four Super Bowl rings.
