Indianapolis Colts: Prediction 10-6. Result 14-2.
I misjudged this team a lot; I thought this team would be in dismay with the coaching changes at the start of the year. The players weren't getting any younger, and holes were ripped with the losses of Marvin Harrison and Tony Dungy.
But folks, these are the Indianapolis Colts we're talking about here, and they alway make something out of nothing. Their 14-0 start was great for this franchise, nothing can stop them, and they helped Buffalo feel good about themselves in the last week—always feels good, people.
Houston Texans: Prediction 10-6. Result 9-7.
I saw them doing very well; I got something right. They had a big confidence boost by beating the big bad Patriots to finish off their first winning season in franchise history. They'll be back next year to give the playoffs another shot.
Tennessee Titans: Prediction 11-5. Result 8-8.
I didn't think Kerry Collins was that bad—oops, wrong again. I've always liked Vince Young and thought he was destined to be their franchise QB.
They proved critics wrong after an 0-6 start, finishing the season strong with an 8-2 record and a brilliant 2,000-yard season from Chris Johnson. They're the exact opposite of the Broncos—isn't that strange?
Jaksonville Jaguars: Prediction 11-5. Result 7-9.
Hey, I thought I saw a pattern: good, bad, good, bad, good, bad...you get the point. They were bad last year, and they did bad again. I really don't understand this team; they'll draft Tim Tebow, I know it, but yet again, I'm right about 29 percent of the time, so what do I know?
