Top 10 Bold Predictions for the 2018 NFL Season

2018 is almost halfway over, which means football will soon be back. Here’s some bold predictions—some that probably won’t happen and some that might. Expect this to be way off when the super bowl happens though.
The voting period for this list has ended.
The Top Ten
1 The Browns win more than 2 games

This one is probably a stretch because they are the Cleveland Browns, but I will say that their roster has improved from where it was a few years ago.

Wow, this is quite bold. I don't know honestly. With a terrible head coach, I'm not thinking highly of them currently.

I knew this would be crazy, but here we are over halfway through the season, and they have won 2.5 games. So, close enough.

2 The Packers will not win the division

Okay, look, I know Rodgers is back, but this team has lost a few offensive weapons, and the defense is mediocre. Plus, the Vikings are improving, and the Lions and Bears are also doing things. Not saying that they will come in last, but it's going to be a challenge for them to win it.

Sure, we may not win the division, but I think we'll make the playoffs.

3 Derrius Guice will be the Rookie of the year

Welp, he tore his ACL. I don't think this is happening now. But at least he could be a contender for comeback player of the year.

4 The Patriots will not be the overall #1 in the playoffs

This one is definitely a stretch, but it's no secret that the empire is coming to an end. Brady is getting older and will eventually have to retire. The Pats are also losing a bunch of assistant coaches. Plus, the Bills are on the rise, so they might not even win the division. Miami and New York aren't going anywhere though, so it's either going to Buffalo or New England.

5 The Chiefs regress and fire Andy Reid

This is definitely a possibility since they lost Alex Smith, and now they have a tough schedule with the young Patrick Mahomes leading the offensive side. If Andy Reid can't lead them to the playoffs and actually not choke, then I'm saying they fire him.

6 The Chargers will make the playoffs

This Chargers team was one of the hottest teams at the end of last year. Plus, the Raiders will be mediocre, Chiefs will likely have a fallback year, and Denver will be okay, so they have a chance at the division. Even if they don't win the division, all they have to do is win 10-11 games. The schedule doesn't look too terrible overall. Can Philip Rivers lead the bolts?

Indeed, they did, and they even won a game.

7 The Cowboys will miss the playoffs

Look, I don't think they have a legitimate shot at taking the division from the Eagles, so they are going to have to play for a wild card. I'm expecting that either LA or San Francisco will take a wild card, and then the Panthers or Falcons will be in contention for the other one. If they don't win the important games, they will miss out, and Jason Garrett will likely be fired.

I must admit, I underestimated them.

8 The Rams will make the Super Bowl

Not if we have anything to say about it.

9 The Eagles will return to the super bowl

The Eagles are still going to be loaded with the return of Wentz, Nick Foles, a bunch of offensive weapons, and a decent defense. Expect them to be in contention for at least the next 3-5 Super Bowls.

10 The Jaguars will make the super bowl

If they can put up a fight against the Patriots, then they have what it takes. Not only are they young, but now they have some playoff experience. If they can stay good, then watch out AFC, the Jaguars are going to the Super Bowl.

Well, that was way off. Seems like keeping Bortles finally caught up with them.

The Contenders
11 The Saints will win the NFC South

Okay, let's take a quick look at the NFC South:
Atlanta, nope, they've fallen back since the second half of the Super Bowl, and realistically speaking, this is their very last chance before things could get rough.
Carolina, no way. This team is slowly fading into mediocrity with not a lot of weapons for Cam and a fading defense. Not going to win the division.
And Tampa Bay, are you kidding me? No! Come back when you win more than 9 games in a season.
That leaves the Saints to take the division again. I'm expecting Brees to pick up where this team left off... well, aside from that whole Marcus Williams missing a tackle against the Vikings in the playoffs thing.

12 The Panthers will miss the playoffs

I had a joke, but the second half of it was terrible. Just like the Panthers' season.

13 The Texans will improve

Well, they did, but then fizzled out near the end.

Yes, if the Texans have a healthy team, they can shock some people.

14 Cardinals will have the #1 overall pick in 2019

Congratulations, Arizona! You're the winner of the first overall pick!

This picture is exactly what Cardinals fans will be saying.

Already looking like that. It's either them or Oakland right now.

15 The Giants will improve

I know they were terrible last year, but Ben McAdoo is gone, and keep in mind that they had a ton of injuries. Also, they drafted some good players. Will they make the playoffs? Probably not, but they will at least win 5-6 games.

16 Chicago bears will win 8+ games
17 Denver will make the playoffs

Okay, the Broncos are doing things. First, they got Case Keenum, so they finally have a decent quarterback. And drafting Bradley Chubb to pair alongside Von Miller. That's going to be a dynamic defensive duo for sure! Courtland Sutton also wasn't a bad pick either. If they can win at least 9-10 games, then Denver could get back to the playoff promised land.

18 Detroit Lions will win the Super Bowl
19 The Ravens will make playoffs
20 Buffalo will miss the Playoffs
