Final Predictions For 2015 NFL Season
The first game of the 2015 NFL season is here, as the Steelers and Patriots will join together to officially kick things off. That gives us only a few hours before we can push out our final 2015 NFL predictions.
Odds aside, you usually have to go with your gut on these things. Combine logic and research together to find the ultimate winners of divisions, playoff games, awards and of course, the Super Bowl. If you happen to take some chances on guys or teams with poor odds, you’re only going to come out on top because of it. If not, well, that’s what betting on the NFL is all about.
With that, let’s dive into our final NFL predictions for the 2015 NFL season:
AFC Division Winners: Patriots, Ravens, Colts, Broncos
It’s the same story in the AFC, as dominance reigns supreme. I just think Tom Brady and co. will be too made to fail, while the Colts have a division too easy to lose and Peyton Manning has just enough gas left to get it done again. As for Baltimore, they’re without a doubt the most balanced team in their division, if not the entire league.
AFC Wild Cards: Dolphins and Bengals
I also like the Bills, Steelers, Chiefs and Chargers plenty, but Buffalo has major questions on offense and has to contest with a pretty good AFC East group. Pittsburgh already has guys hurt or suspended and they also can’t defend, while San Diego really only has offense to hang their hat on, as well. KC could be nasty and if anyone is topping the Bengals, it’s them.
Miami brought in Ndamukong Suh, so their defense could be as dirty as their offense. Cincy just keeps making the playoffs, so I’m not about bet against them when they’re actually finally healthy for a change.
NFC Division Winners: Cowboys, Packers, Saints, Seahawks
Dallas is legit. They’ll figure the right mix out for their running game, while a healthy Sean Lee with Greg Hardy makes their defense better. Green Bay loses Jordy Nelson but will still be elite, the Saints getting balanced and running more will work out and Seattle is just as good as ever.
NFC Wild Cards: Eagles and Vikings
Sorry, Arizona, Detroit and Atlanta. It’s just not your year. I oddly think Chip Kelly knows what he’s doing, as he already can bring the offense, but he suddenly might have a pretty decent defense, as well. Minnesota has a strong, young defense and a smart second-year quarterback. Add an angry Adrian Peterson to that and the NFC better lookout.
2015 Super Bowl: Seahawks over Colts
Seattle isn’t very happy about losing what would have been a dynasty-starting second Super Bowl. They can still make a dynasty with a second win here, though, while three straight trips to the final game of the year is just disgusting. I definitely think teams like the Packers and Cowboys have a chance, but meeting up with the Seahawks in Seattle is going to once again have the same boring result.
Indy is just following a natural progression. Andrew Luck keeps getting better, their division is soft and they added two hungry veterans in Andre Johnson in Frank Gore. Their defense is what costs them in the Super Bowl, unfortunately, as they’ll have no answer for Marshawn Lynch.
2015 NFL MVP: Andrew Luck, QB, Indianapolis Colts
While Luck doesn’t win his first Super Bowl, he’s even better in 2015 statistically, wins yet another division and helps Indy to the league’s best record (13-3). That’s enough to dethrone Aaron Rodgers to become the next MVP. The torch has been passed, my friends.
