NFL Predictions

****Sport post - look away now if you don't care about NFL****

Another pretty busy week, but given the NFL season kicked off last night with an overtime win for the Steelers over the Titans, I wanted to note down my predictions for the season so that, come March when the 49ers and the Browns* contest the Superbowl we can laugh at how bad my predictions were. Perhaps only fellow NFL fan Stephen Glenn will be interested in this post, but thats fine too.

I'll start with the NFC:
North Packers (12-4, #1 seed)
East Giants (11-5, #2 seed)
South Falcons (11-5, #3 seed)
West Cardinals (10-6, #4 seed)
Wild Cards Saints (11-5, #5 seed) Eagles (10-6, #6 seed)

NFC Championship:
Packers over Saints

North Ravens (11-5, #3 seed)
East Patriots (13-3, #1 seed)
South Texans (9-7, #4 seed)
West Chargers (12-4, #2 seed)
Wild Cards Steelers (10-6, #5 seed) Jets (9-7, #6 seed)

AFC Championship:
Patriots over Steelers

Patriots over Packers

So there we go. Check back in January to see how badly I've fared with these predictions. I had to back my Jets for a playoff spot, and that's at the expense of both the Titans and Colts (which might be surprising but I reckon I'm ahead of the curve here). In the NFC, the Cowboys will be the biggest disappointment in their new stadium, as they miss the playoffs and cost Wade Phillips his job. And through gritted teeth, I think Pats will seal another Superbowl.

You read it here first. Though perhaps not, if you've already read it somewhere else.

*This is, of course, a joke. Like saying Motherwell and St. Mirren will be the main contenders for the SPL trophy.
