Recently, I went though the Detroit Lions schedule and predicted the result of every game. I came up with a 9-7 record, which I found mildly surprising. Now, as I always do, I have gone through the entire NFL schedule, and predicted the results for every team. Here are those records, and some other predictions.

NFC East

Dallas Cowboys: 7-9
New York Giants: 7-9
Philadelphia Eagles: 11-5
Washington: 5-11

NFC North

Chicago Bears: 10-6
Detroit Lions: 9-7
Green Bay Packers: 11-5
Minnesota Vikings: 4-12

NFC South

Atlanta Falcons: 6-10
Carolina Panthers: 7-9
New Orleans Saints: 13-3
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 5-11

NFC West

Arizona Cardinals: 6-10
St. Louis Rams: 5-11
San Francisco 49ers: 11-5
Seattle Seahawks: 12-4

AFC East

Buffalo Bills: 6-10
Miami Dolphins: 6-10
New England Patriots: 11-5
New York Jets: 3-13

AFC North

Baltimore Ravens: 8-8
Cincinnati Bengals: 7-9
Cleveland Browns: 4-12
Pittsburgh Steelers: 11-5

AFC South

Houston Texans: 5-11
Indianapolis Colts: 8-8
Jacksonville Jaguars: 5-11
Tennessee Titans: 6-10

AFC West

Denver Broncos: 12-4
Kansas City Chiefs: 6-10
Oakland Raiders: 4-12
San Diego Chargers: 8-8

Alright, there we go. As it stands, I do not have the Lions in the playoffs, but they have the best record of my non-playoff teams. I really think the battle will come down to Detroit versus Chicago for that last playoff spot. However, my playoff teams in the NFC are New Orleans, Seattle, Green Bay, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Chicago. In the AFC, it's Dever, New England, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, San Diego, and Baltimore. For the Super Bowl, I shall go with New Orleans over Denver.

The real season begins Thursday. Predictions will be placed by results. Are you ready for some (professional regular season) football!?
