NFC Predictions

NFC East

  • Washington Football Team- yes they are first in the weakest division in the NFC.Head coach Ron Rivera gets all the credit for respectability,
  • Dallas Cowboys- A healthy Dak Prescott all season could mean first in the NFC East.
  • New York Giants- this is a medicare team and a coaching change could happen if they falter.
  • Philadelphia Eagles- New coach in Nick Sirianni and QB in Jalen Hurts brings hope.

NFC West

  • Los Angeles Rams- Mathew Stafford has a ton of pressure as the new quarterback. Expectations are high for the fan base.
  • San Francisco 49’ers- This may be too high to finish 2nd. When does Trey Lance get his chance?
  • Arizona Cardinals- The offense is good enough but when do they reach potential? Coach Kingsbury can’t do the same thing and expect different results.
  • Seattle Seahawks- It’s a rebuild and Russell Wilson wants out.

NFC North

  • Green Bay Packers- Maybe or not. Depends on the Rodgers situation.
  • Minnesota Vikings- Decent team but oddity is Mike Zimmer makes the playoffs in the odd numbered years. Could it be?
  • Chicago Bears- Fans are giddy with Justin Fields in the waiting room. Ryan Pace at GM has been underwhelming.
  • Detroit Lions- This is where bad endings happen but Jared Goff is out to change that.

NFC South

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers- No changes in off season. Don’t mess with success.
  • New Orleans Saints- Who got the keys from Brees? Is it Tayson Hill or Jameis Winston? Either gets some talent to work with.
  • Atlanta Falcons- new regime is in charge and that could help Matt Ryan.
  • Carolina Panthers- It all points to if Christian McCaffrey comes back healthy from injury.
