2019 NFL Season Predictions - NFC & AFC East
2019 NFL Season Predictions
Dallas Cowboys (13-3)
Well I hope all the Cowboys haters enjoyed the suffering of us Cowboys fans over the years because I think that will all come to an end this year! The Cowboys are stacked on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. They have built this team from the ground up with solid draft picks and smart moves in free agency and trades. They have a young squad who have grown into a solid team and this year the hard work should finally pay off. On offense I expect Ezekiel Elliott to pick up right where he left off last season by running the opposing defense into the ground, and making a strong case for league MVP. While Zeke is expected to carry the load, I do believe that Dak is going to have one of the best seasons of his career. There is more depth at receiver with Jason Witten coming out of retirement and the addition of Randall Cobb in the offseason, but you can tell Dak spent the offseason working on his mechanics. Judging from the preseason he has been much more accurate and that is going to be scary for the league. On defense this team is going to be one of the best in the league. Their linebacking core is one of the best in the league led by Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith, and I haven’t got to the front line with DeMarcus Lawrence on the end. The Cowboys have spent the entire offseason building and everyone seems to be on the same page from the coaches down to the players. I expect the Cowboys to be one of the best teams in the league this season.
Philadelphia Eagles (10-6)
I miss the good old days when the Eagles were a garbage can team with no Super Bowl rings, but now they are actually a team that could win the NFC East regularly! Carson Wentz is coming off of yet another injury that ended his season last year. It will be interesting to see if he’s able to make it through this season without having to miss any games due to injury, especially now the backup quarterback situation is much different without Nick Foles. Overall not much has changed about this team aside from getting some key players back from injury. They still have an explosive offense and a solid defense, along with a smart coach I anticipate a strong showing from the Eagles this year.
Washington Redskins (4-12)
I think it’s safe to say that the Jay Gruden experiment as the Coach of the Redskins has failed horribly! They have grown progressively worse every day of his coaching career with the team. They have never had an identity beyond mediocrity. They have had no consistency at quarterback, running back, wide receiver, defense, or really at any position on the field. I predict a season of rotating quarterbacks, yet again, and I also predict Gruden is one of the first coaches fired before the season ends.
New York Giants (2-14)
It doesn’t matter who ends up starting as the quarterback for the Giants this season because overall this team is garbage! Saquon Barkley is probably going to be fun to watch and he is definitely going to make some big plays, but outside of him this team has nothing going on. Eli Manning’s career is slowly dying each and every season and the defense follows right along with him. I expect a hilarious season full of follies for the New York Giants and I am looking forward to it!
New England Patriots (10-6)
There really isn’t anything to say about the Patriots because Tom Brady is still the quarterback and Bill Belichick is still the coach. Also, the AFC East continues to be one of the worst division in the entire league! It should be another cake walk to the playoffs for the Patriots! They may not end up being the top team in the AFC, but you can’t ever count this team out when Brady is still playing at an elite level.
New York Jets (9-7)
I think the Jets will be one of the most improved teams from last season. They have made some great additions to the team starting with signing Le’Veon Bell. He is going to add a spark to this offense and is going to give Sam Darnold a nice weapon to help open up the offense. While I do believe the Jets are an improved team, they still have a long way to go to become a contender. I’m not really sold on Adam Gase as the coach because he was such an epic fail in Miami, but he never had a player like Le’Veon Bell who can take a team to a whole other level. The Jets are building a solid foundation with a bright future. The Jets will shake some shit up this season and maybe even make a run at the playoffs as a Wild Card team.
Buffalo Bills (6-10)
The Bills have to actually show me something before I ever consider them to be a legit team. There is absolutely nothing going on with this squad and I’m expecting them to have another season of getting their asses whooped!
Miami Dolphins (3-13)
The Dolphins are poised to be one of the worst teams in the league this season. I was just looking over the entire roster and when you’re best player is Ryan Fitzpatrick…that’s a problem! It’s going to be a long season for Miami…a long season of losing.
