NFL Predictions For The 2008 Home Stretch

So before the NFL season started, I had simply said that there were a couple of teams to watch out for. The New Orleans Saints, Washington Redskins, Oakland Raiders, and New York Jets.

Well the Raiders were a big bust. I didn't expect them to go to the playoffs, but I didn't expect them to be this bad either. They are only 2-6 right now.

The New Orleans Saints should be a good team. So tell me why they are only a .500 team? A 4-4 record isn't going to get it done in that division guys.

This brings me to the next two teams which are doing as I expected. First off we have the New York Jets, which without the good play of Brett Favre (excluding one game where he threw six touchdowns), the Jets are 5-3 and tied for first in their division.

The Redskins are 6-3 and are right behind the 7-1 Giants in their tough division.

The NFL in 2008 is anything but usual. Nobody expected Tom Brady to be out for the rest of the season. That changed everything for the New England Patriots. Or how about the fact that the Tennessee Titans are the NFL's only undefeated team right now... WITHOUT Vince Young?

Here were my predictions before the NFL Season started:

AFC EAST
New York Jets
(14-2)
New England Patriots (11-5)
Miami Dolphins (7-9)
Buffalo Bills (4-12)

AFC NORTH
Pittsburgh Steelers
(12-4)
Cleveland Browns (10-6)
Baltimore Ravens (7-9)
Cincinnati Bengals (2-14)

AFC SOUTH
Jacksonville Jaguars
(11-5)
Indianapolis Colts (10-6)
Houston Texans (10-6)
Tennessee Titans (7-9)

AFC WEST
San Diego Chargers
(14-2)
Kansas City Chiefs (6-10)
Denver Broncos (5-11)
Oakland Raiders (5-11)

 

NFC EAST
Dallas Cowboys
(11-5)
New York Giants (11-5)
Washington Redskins (10-6)
Philadelphia Eagles (2-14)

NFC NORTH
Green Bay Packers
(13-3)
Minnesota Vikings (9-7)
Chicago Bears (7-9)
Detroit Lions (5-11)

NFC SOUTH
New Orleans Saints
(11-5)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-9)
Carolina Panthers (6-10)
Atlanta Falcons (5-11)

NFC WEST
Arizona Cardinals
(8-8)
San Francisco 49ers (6-10)
St. Louis Rams (5-11)
Seattle Seahawks (5-11)

 

AFC PLAYOFF SEEDS:
1: San Diego Chargers
2: New York Jets
3: Pittsburgh Steelers
4: Jacksonville Jaguars
5: New England Patriots
6: Indianapolis Colts

NFC PLAYOFF SEEDS:
1: Green Bay Packers
2: Dallas Cowboys
3: New Orleans Saints
4: Arizona Cardinals
5: New York Giants
6: Washington Redskins

However we all know that this really just doesn't look that right anymore. Especially with the Colts and the Chargers playing like garbage lately. So now that Week 10 is upon us where all 32 teams will be playing every week now until the post-season, I decided to make my mid-season predictions.

AFC EAST
New York Jets
(12-4)
Miami Dolphins (11-5)
New England Patriots (9-7)
Buffalo Bills (8-8)

Baltimore Ravens (6-10)
Cincinnati Bengals (3-13)

AFC SOUTH
Tennessee Titans
(14-2)
Indianapolis Colts (7-9)
Houston Texans (7-9)
Jacksonville Jaguars (6-10)

AFC WEST
Denver Broncos
(9-7)
San Diego Chargers (7-9)
Oakland Raiders (2-14)
Kansas City Chiefs (2-14)

 

NFC EAST
New York Giants
(12-4)
Washington Redskins (11-5)
Dallas Cowboys (11-5)
Philadelphia Eagles (9-7)
