After looking at each team's 2009 schedule and adding up their projected wins and losses, these are my projections for the season.
Patriots (14-2) Magic Tom is back...enough said.
Jets (8-8) Rex Ryan will have this defense in the top 10, but Sanchez will struggle.
Dolphins (8-8) Pennington can't and won't match last year's performance.
Bills (4-12) Team is tough to read, but they were the worst team in preseason.
Steelers (13-3) Superbowl 43 winner only got better.
Ravens (10-6) Flacco and Ray Rice will carry the offense. Can Ray still carry the D?
Bengals (8-8) A healthy C. Palmer and rejuvenated Ocho Cinco sparks this team.
Browns (4-12) Quinn will start and he will struggle. Defense still has holes.
Colts (11-5) Manning wants his AFC South title back...and will get it.
Jaguars (9-7) Young team full of good character and hungry players. Lots of ?s.
Texans (8-8) High-powered offense with a healthy Schaub. Can the D step up?
Titans (7-9) Collins will come back down to earth. Will V. Young finish the season?
Chargers (11-5) 6 guaranteed victories is always nice. This division blows.
Raiders (5-11) Don't get the wrong idea...the Raiders are still bad.
Chiefs (4-12) New coach, new QB, new defense...long season.
Broncos (2-14) See above
Eagles (11-5) A healthy McNabb with all kinds of weapons will take this division.
Cowboys (10-6) Felix Jones and MBIII will cary this team despite Romo.
Redskins (9-7) Jason Campbell will save his career this year. Big year.
Giants (8-8) Eli will struggle with his new WRs. Frustrating year in NY.
Packers (12-4) A Rodgers will join Peyton and Brady as an elite QB. D will surprise.
Vikings (11-5) Favre wins a few and also loses a few. AP and the D hold steady.
Bears (10-6) Cutler wins 5 by himself but the defense has some holes.
Lions (4-12) Better, but Stafford will struggle. Still no defense.
Saints (10-6) Brees will carry this team as usual, but can the D hold the lead?
Falcons (9-7) Matt Ryan is the real deal. D will be better, but still not ready.
Panthers (6-10) This team has problems...and it starts at the QB position.
Buccaneers (3-13) New coach, new team...long year in Tampa.
Seahawks (11-5) Hasselbeck is back and will carry this team...sleeper MVP candidate.
49ers (9-7) Young and hungry team. Not sure about S. Hill though.
Cardinals (7-9) Too old at QB...to many questions everywhere else. Luck runs out.
Rams (2-14) Team is a one man band named Steven Jackson. Just isn't enough.
New England over Pittsburgh
Green Bay over Philly
Rematch of Superbow 31.
Patriots over Packers - Magic Tom and Bad Bill re-take the crown.
