AFC East
Patriots: 12-4 - Tom Brady will have one or two more good years.
Bills: 10-6 - The Bills with a better offense with that defense...
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.

NFC East

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.

-There's no way the Bucs go 2-14 again. They'll be like the 2014 Texans who had the number one pick the previous season and be average.
-With the most dominate defense in the league and a dominant rushing attack I don't see how seattle goes 8-8.
- Wade phillips will have the Broncos Defense performing at a top 5 level(most talent he's ever had on that side of the ball) and CJ Anderson will have a great year in Kubiaks offense(he was their mvp down the stretch). Even if Peyton is average they win 10 or 11 games

Bills over Patriots in the playoffs? What are you smoking, and can I have some?

It's way too early to tell, but I will say that OP's prediction about the Browns going 3-13 is not out of the question. All of the improvement they showed last year will be undermined due to the fact that they have still failed to address the QB situation! Siging Josh McCown is NOT addressing the QB situation, and I cannot believe that they actually did that! They should have stuck with Brian Hoyer, and sadly the hometown guy will be moving on! Throw in the fact that they have a tough schedule this year in playing the NFC and AFC west divisions as well as playing their own rivals twice! My optimism about them turning the corner has seriously waned!

Thank GOD for the Ohio State Buckeyes!

I wondered why you thought so highly of the Bills until I saw where you are from. I don't see them making the playoffs.

I think you are being generous with the Browns getting 3 wins. They won't win any but their opponents may lose a few.

perhaps you should wait until after draft day, and after the free agency dealing is done with, and after the inevitable trading has been done before you make predictions about what the teams are going to do this season. for instance, if the cowboys let murray go, keep bryant, bolster their defense more(remember sean lee is coming back for the cowboys), and pick up adrian peterson, they may end up having another season like the last one.

Good point, I don't see the Cowboys at 8-8 but there are always big IFs! Cowboys do have cap issues though compared to some teams, plus Romo's $$$ hit this year unless he restructures is huge.

Why the Bills will beat the Patriots:

Jets beat the Patriots in the Divisional Round 28-21. The 2015 Bills will likely have a better defense and likely a better offense than the 2010 Jets.

The Bills have no playoff experience.

Rex always plays them tough. They lost 27-25 in Foxborough and 17-16 at MetLife. In both games, their kicker missed field goals.

Detroit does not go 12-4, more like 9-7. Minnesota goes 10-6. Bears go 2-14 or 3-13 at most.
