Are you ready for some football? You still have time to purchase that new television! This is also a good time for my annual reminder to put new batteries in your remote control!
Please Note: I have written this column at a sixth grade level so Broncos, Raiders, and Chargers fans can understand it.
The NFL season kicks off Thursday night with the New England Patriots hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers. The game will be televised on NBC.
If you follow me on Twitter or read this blog very much, you know that I am a life-long Kansas City Chiefs fan. Last year we (Chiefs) missed the playoffs. I don’t know if head coach Andy Reid is the person to get the Chiefs to the promised land or not. Most folks, me included, don’t have the Chiefs making the playoffs this season. I think the Chiefs will be fortunate to get back to 9-7. Plus, the Chiefs gave up a home game to play in London. Freaking LONDON.
Now on to the predictions…
DISCLAIMER: I am a professional football watcher so be careful if you try this at home.
I have always been pretty bad at predicting who will win each division in the NFL, but in 2014 I did pick five of the six AFC playoff teams correctly. As for the NFC in 2014, I picked three of the six playoff teams correctly.
So I am feeling pretty good about this year’s predictions.
I did correctly pick last season’s Super Bowl winner – the New England Patriots.
So here goes – and this is not for the faint-hearted. 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 2015 season:
AFC East: New England
AFC West: Denver*
AFC North: Pittsburgh
AFC South: Indianapolis
Wild Cards: San Diego, Baltimore
NFC East: Dallas
NFC West: Seattle
NFC North: Green Bay
NFC South: New Orleans
Wild Cards: Philadelphia, Arizona
NFC: Green Bay
Super Bowl 50 Champion…
…Green Bay Packers**
*Bold Prediction: This will be Denver QB Peyton Manning’s last year. He is in a new offense and his offensive line is weak. He will be beaten up pretty badly this season. It will be his last.
-I also predict the Chiefs will beat the Broncos badly at Arrowhead on September 17 – which is Thursday Night Football and the home opener for the Chiefs. The final score will be in the neighborhood of Chiefs 96, Broncos 3…
-By the way, Arrowhead is the home of the loudest outdoor stadium – so take that Seahawks and Montana Griz fans…
**After treating former QB Brett Favre like crap for several years, the Packers will place his name and number on the Lambeau Field Ring of Honor Thanksgiving night. This will turn the Packers’ luck around and they will win Super Bowl 50.
