Rex always plays them tough. They lost 27-25 in Foxborough and 17-16 at MetLife. In both games, their kicker missed field goals.
So you're basing what happened in previous seasons as an indication of what will happen in this upcoming season? What does the 2010 Jets have to do with the 2015 Bills?



I won't make win predictions, but I will say that the AFC South will continue to be the worst division in the AFC.

Houston Texans make the playoffs at 10-6 because JJ Watt plays QB this year.

I find the 9-7 prediction for the Broncos to be rather questionable. Manning's "regression" was nothing more than an injury, and assuming he stays healthy this year there is little reason to think he won't be performing at an elite level again. We also have a better coaching staff that will install systems that make better use of our current players and what should be an easier schedule.

I'm planning for another 13-3 or 12-4 season.

It wouldn't be shocking to see the Cowboys make the playoffs again but I would guess a 10-6 or 9-7 wild card team. Dallas played so well for most of the 2014 season, especially in the December for the first time in my lifetime. Murray meant a lot more to the team than some people think, the established run game and consistently going back to the run game was a big part of the Cowboys' success and breaking the 8-8 curse. As a Texans fan, I still hope the Cowboys do well with McFadden.

Dolphins: 8-8 - Phins will go 8-8 again, not 9-7.
Jets: 6-10 - I have a lot of faith in Todd Bowles

AFC North
Ravens: 11-5 - Harbaugh (the one not named Jim) always finds ways to win.
Steelers: 9-7 - The Steelers are a below average team, but play tough in their divisional games.
Bengals: 9-7 - Steelers will sweep them again.
Browns: 3-13 - Only reason they went 7-9 was because they played the weakest divisions.

AFC South
Colts: 11-5 - Luck is an interception machine, but they take the division.
Texans: 10-6 - Their future looks good.
Jaguars: 7-9 - If they get the right players in the draft, they will improve.
Titans: 2-12 - Sorry, not this year.

AFC West
Chargers: 10-6 - This is their year. Also likely their last season in SD.
Broncos: 9-7 - Declining Manning, they will regress this year.
Chiefs: 9-7 - Maybe next year.
Raiders: 4-12 - Not this year IMO, but still a team to watch.

Seed 1: Patriots
Seed 2: Ravens
Seed 3: Colts
Seed 4: Chargers
Seed 5: Bills
Seed 6: Texans

#5 Bills over #4 Chargers
#3 Colts over #6 Texans

#5 Bills over #1 Patriots
#2 Ravens over #3 Colts

#2 Ravens over #5 Bills

NFC East
Eagles: 11-5 - Chip is in his 3rd year, I see success.
Giants: 10-6 - I see a comeback this year.
Cowboys: 8-8 - Had a good year, now the start of their demise and Romo is declining.
Redskins: 3-13 - Not this year DC.

NFC North
Packers: 12-4 - The Big Green Machine!
Lions: 12-4 - Another good year for them.
Vikings: 8-8 - Break even this year.
Bears: 5-11 - Same as last season.

NFC South
Falcons: 10-6 - Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, and an upgraded defense.
Panthers: 8-8 - Meh, they will be eh again, but finish strong.
Saints: Brees is getting older.
Buccaneers: 2-14 - Another bad year.

NFC West
Cardinals: 12-4 - If they stay healthy, they will win.
Seahawks: 8-8 - They will collapse again, look for Pete to be fired in 3-4 seasons from decline.
49ers: 6-10 - Without the other Harbaugh not named John, this team isnt going anywhere.
Rams: 5-11 - Good front 7.

Seed 1: Green Bay
Seed 2: Arizona
Seed 3: Eagles
Seed 4: Falcons
Seed 5: Lions
Seed 6: Giants

#3 Eagles over #6 Giants
#5 Lions over #4 Falcons

#1 Packers over #5 Lions
#2 Cardinals over #3 Eagles

#1 Packers over #2 Cardinals

Super Bowl
Packers over Ravens

Thoughts??
The Bengals swept the Ravens last year. Not sure why you put the reasoning the Bengals finish 3rd.

Anyway, both the Bengals and Steelers will finish ahead of the Ravens.

Hey, do you remember last year when people predicted the Steelers to finish 8-8, 7-9 or 6-10, and then they finished 11-5 and won the AFC North? That was awesome.

You'll have to pardon me if I don't consider a team that's won 19 of their last 28 games to be mediocre.
