SB VL Prediction Calls For Second Mardi Gras

Usually, my first prediction for the upcoming NFL season is made in April, but this year, the schedule was released later than usual, meaning my “April prediction” is now out in May, and reflects changes made in the league through the draft,  free-agent signings and star suspensions.

 

Remember that joke about the guy from Country A who moves to Country B and raises the IQ of both?

 

Jason Campbell is that guy.

 

Last year, I predicted the Cardinals And Patriots would meet in the Super Bowl. This year, due to having move information, I should get it right.

 

I predicted the outcome of every regular-season game, and used the league's tiebreaking formulas to determine playoff seeding, which is in parentheses.
