Day 2 of the season predictions kicks off with the worst division in football lately — the AFC South. The Texans and Colts have been the only winners of this division since 2008, when the Titans went 13-3 to take first place. The Titans seemed poised to snatch the throne from two time defending champion Houston, with their young core starting with QB Marcus Mariota. Let’s take a look at the picks:
“Put the Browns in the AFC South and you have a 10 win team.” – Danny
- Only Danny has the Texans repeating as division champs — everyone else is betting on the Titans to finally reach their potential and snatch the division crown.
- Everyone agrees the Texans remain an above .500 team even with the question mark at QB after shuffling through 3 last year.
- Kevin likes the Colts to finish above .500 while the other three are looking at a grim 6-10 finish and likely firing of Chuck Pagano.
- Everyone likes the Jaguars to improve upon their 3-13 record in 2017. Blake Bortles faces a ton of uncertainty in what will be a huge year for determining the future of the Jaguars.
Since this is the first week with football back, we figured it’d be best to start our predictions for the 2017-2018 NFL Season.We’re going to break it down by division daily but here is our not-so expert prediction for the AFC East.
“16-0 — never been more sure of anything in my life” – Kevin
- No surprise that the Patriots fell on top of everyone’s list — seems to be a consensus that the reigning SB champs have bolstered their lineup and are ready to take the AFC East for the 14th time in the last 15 years.
- Kevin is the only one who thinks first year coach Sean McDermott leads the Bills to a second place finish — bold prediction there.
- Seems that nobody thinks a second AFC East team will make an appearance to the playoffs — only Kevin & Tyler have another team above .500.
- Looks like it’ll be a tough year for the dumpster fire known as the Jets organization.
Fresh off a historic comeback in Super Bowl LI, the New England Patriots are storming into the 2017-2018 season with key acquisitions on both sides of the ball. Though raising some eyebrows with all these seemingly “win-now” pick-ups, the Patriots know their window with Tom Brady at the helm are dwindling down.
Let’s take a look at the key games on the schedule:
