Pretty wrong here. Was right about all the top 3 having a similar record but wrong about who the top 3 were.

Fairly wrong here. Got the Packers right, the Lions right, the Bears closeish and totally missed the Vikings rebounding with AP going nuts.

Beason wasn't healthy, but that defense was a TON better. Still, Carolina finished strong but never was a threat to take a wildcard spot. Got everything else right.

SF took it, but not "easily". Bradford never took the next step though the Rams were kind of dangerous. Hit Arizona and that's it. Couldn't even get Seattle's QB right, though I had the same critique of Wilson coming into the season anyway.

The Bills never made the push, but I nailed everything else. Ryan was almost run out of town.

Horrible typos aside, got this one almost perfectly too. Baltimore faded towards the end to miss a bye, but that's about it.

Texans could still make the SB, though that's looking doubtful. Titans never challenged, and I really overrated the Jags and underrated the Colts just like everyone else.

Hit Denver and really overrated KC. I don't know if I'd call what the Raiders did "disappointing" considering they never really were expected to do anything anyway.

Let's look...
Steelers - Loss
Falcons - Loss
Texans - Loss
Raiders - Loss
Patriots - Loss
Chargers - Win
Bye
Saints - Loss
Bengals - Win
Panthers - Win
Chargers - Win
Chiefs - Win
Bucs - Win
Raiders - Loss
Ravens - Loss
Browns - Win
Chiefs - Win

This team will be lucky to win two of their first 7 games and I don't see an 8-8 team winning the AFC West. Heck, I think if this team ends up going 0-4 or 1-5 from the start they might not even do as well as I predict in the second half of the season.

And Palmer a better season then Manning? Manning will throw 30+ TDs. Palmer will be lucky to hit 25.
Manning threw 37 and looked like an MVP, Palmer threw 22 and is pretty much done in Oakland. And I correctly predicted the result of 14 of the Broncos' 16 games. The only ones I missed were calling the Texans a win and keeping the Ravens as a loss.
