Finally! Another NFL Season is upon us! Mercifully, the offseason has come to an end with training camps opening for all 32 teams within the last few days. Here is my annual attempt at amateur prognostication (admittedly I have been below average in my 30 years of predicting how NFL seasons will go.

1. New England Patriots
2. New York Jets

4. Houston Texans (This team is a trendy Super Bowl pick but I don’t trust their QB)

North:
1. Cincinnati Bengals
2. Pittsburgh Steelers
3. Baltimore Ravens
4. Cleveland Browns

West:
1. Kansas City Chiefs
2. Oakland Raiders
3. Denver Broncos
4. San Diego Chargers
