2014 NFL Season Predictions

New, comments

Who will win, who will lose, who will surprise, it's all here!

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

As the new NFL season approaches, it’s time to put your name on the line and make predictions. The NFC is the stronger conference top to bottom this year, but the cream of the AFC is just as good as the top NFC teams.

Some teams will actually approach the 13-14 win mark in the AFC, in the weak East and South. The NFC West is still the top conference in football, but with all the issues with the 49ers, the Bradford injury, and the injuries/suspensions on the Cardinals defense, it might not be the case by season's end.

Here is my swing at predicting the 2014 NFL season all the way up to the Super Bowl.
