In April, right after the 2009 NFL schedule was released, I looked it over, predicted the winner of all 256 regular-season games, and came to the conclusion that the New England Patriots would defeat the New york Giants in Super Bowl XLIV.

A lot of things have happened seince then, including defections, free-agent transfers and the return to the league of Michael Vick and Brett Favre (again).

A new prediction, therefore, is in order. Playoff seeds are in parenthesis.
