I just finished up with my 2015 AFC predictions for the regular season, so now we move on to the NFC. In recent years, the NFC has been the predominant conference in the league, but I sense a trend shifting back towards the AFC this season. I believe the NFC South will record the fewest total wins of any division this season once again. While the AFC may field some more powerful teams during the regular season, that doesn’t mean I think they are a shoe-in for the Super Bowl win this year either.

NFC East-

Philadelphia Eagles 12-4 I’ve watched this team with interest the last few years with what head coach Chip Kelly is doing. This offense was insane this preseason. I think Kelly reaches post season this year.

New York Giants 9-7 QB Eli Manning in the last year of his contract. Head coach Tom Coughlin the oldest head coach in the league. Do not overlook the fact that Giants averaged 29.2 points a game in their final 6 games of last year as Manning bonded with his new offensive coordinator.

Dallas Cowboys 9-7 A nice run for the boys last year, but DeMarco Murray isn’t going to carry the rock 700 times this year. (Need I say, inject sarcasm here)

Washington Redskins 5-11 You know your organization has reached a low point when the wife of your GM is tweeting to reporters asking about how many blowjobs she had to give to get a story.

NFC North-

Green Bay Packers 12-4 10 minutes away from a trip to the Super Bowl last year, playing in Seattle.

Detroit Lions 8-8 The window opened and closed on this team last season.

Minnesota Vikings 8-8 A team that is going to have to be watched in 2016 and beyond. Not ready this year, but will be a force to be reckoned with in the future.

Chicago Bears 4-12 Every year we hear about how this is going to be the year QB Jay Cutler realizes his potential. It hasn’t happened by now and it isn’t going to happen this year either.

NFC South-

New Orleans Saints 9-7 Someone has to win this division.

Carolina Panthers 6-10 QB Cam Newton has no one to throw the ball to except TE Greg Olsen.

Atlanta Falcons 6-10 New coach, defensive minded and the team is horrible on both sides of the ball.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 5-11 Rookie QB in Jameis Winston, offensive line looked terrible in preseason, defensive line offers up no pass rush from the edges.

NFC West

Seattle Seahawks 11-5 This team has lost a lot of talent in the last two seasons via free agency. However, they draft well, and still can escape 2015 with another division title. If S Kam Newton holds out all year, that is a major loss.

St. Louis Rams 9-7 The team’s trade for the exchange of Sam Bradford for Nick Foles works out for each club.

Arizona Cardinals 9-7 Head coach Bruce Arians is a fantastic coach, Carson Palmer is talented, but if he goes down, Arians showed the team advances without him.

San Francisco 49ers 4-12 Team has imploded. Defense gutted.
