2018 NFL Season Predictions - AFC & NFC North
Minnesota Vikings (12-4)
I think the Vikings made the perfect move by letting Case Keenum go and by signing Kirk Cousins because while the Vikings were a damn good team last year, I think they are now even better! Kirk Cousins has proven he is a reliable quarterback with his time in Washington and now that he has signed with the Vikings he has quite a few weapons to work with on offense. The Vikings have a solid receiving core and Dalvin Cook is back from injury and ready to pick up right where he left off last season in the backfield. The Vikings defense is one of the best in the league and that will be a huge incentive for Cousins and the offense. I believe the Vikings will build off of what they did last season and continue to dominate again into this season.
Green Bay Packers (9-7)
The Packers continue to run through one player and one player only, Aaron Rodgers. Don’t get me wrong he is a great quarterback, but it’s been proven that he cannot win it all unless you get him some help. The receivers are mediocre, the running game is mediocre, and the offensive line is straight up garbage! The Packers will be lucky if he is able to avoid injury since the entire offense will run through him. The defense is old and has been shit for years now so there will be no help from them either. Good luck Aaron Rodgers this should be a fun season for you!
Chicago Bears (6-10)
I’m looking over the Bears roster and they should be lucky that I’m even giving them six wins on the season. It feels like the Bears have been rebuilding their team for the past 10 years and I don’t think things are going to get any better this year.
Detroit Lions (3-13)
I hope the Lions fans enjoyed those three seasons they were kind of competitive because that shit is over! It’s back to the dumpster for the Lions!
Pittsburgh Steelers (13-3)
I expect the Steelers to be one of the best teams in the league this season. They have two of the most talented players in the league with Antonio Brown and LeVeon Bell, either of one of them can take over a game at any time. You can’t forget about Ben Roethlisberger who has already led the Steelers to two Super Bowls in the past and has always been one of the most solid quarterbacks in the league. Offense is not an issue for the Steelers, it’s their defense that is the issue. The Steelers used to be known for their amazing defense, but over the past couple of seasons they have been fairly mediocre on the defensive side of the ball. They really didn’t do much to improve that over the offseason so it should be interesting to see how that goes. Although, I still think the Steelers will dominate even with a mediocre defense because in the end they will be tough to keep up with on offense.
Cincinnati Bengals (9-7)
The Bengals have always been consistent with one thing and that is being mediocre. They actually have quite a few really good players, but for some reason they have never been able to capitalize on that. Until the Bengals go out onto the field and prove they can actually compete with the big boys I can’t take them seriously.
Baltimore Ravens (5-11)
The Ravens seem to get older and more mediocre every passing season. It feels like they haven’t signed any noteworthy players since God knows when and it seems they still think Terrell Suggs is going to carry this defense like he used to. Unfortunately for them Suggs is a shell of himself, every time he gets healthy he gets injured all over again. The dude is a beast and I’ve always respected him as a football player, but it may be time for him to hang it up. The Ravens offense is just atrocious Joe Flacco has no one to throw to, no one to hand off the ball to, and I really question whether or not his offensive line will leave him standing upright? Overall the Ravens are going to be a sorry ass team this year!
Cleveland Browns (2-14)
For some odd reason the media is over hyping the Browns up like there is something going on here. Until the Browns win some games…they ain’t shit!
