The 2016 NFL season gets underway tonight, and the writers at Pro Football Rumors have weighed in with projections for the upcoming year. We’ve predicted which teams will earn playoff berths, which clubs will win their respective conferences, the Super Bowl champion, and the winners of the league’s major awards.
Can the Vikings repeat as NFC North champions under the guidance of Sam Bradford? No one at PFR seems to think so as all six of us picked the Packers to regain the divisional crown. There was also a clean sweep for last year’s NFC champs as Panthers are predicted by all to win the NFC South. Looking for some gutsier predictions? I personally have the Jets winning the AFC East and several perennial contenders out of the playoff picture entirely.
