Make Your NFL 2011 Season Predictions


It is time to make your predictions for the season.  We can review it at the end of the year to see who came closest.  I will list the order of how I think team will finish in their division from first to last. Then I will do the playoff matchups and eventual Super Bowl winner.

So here goes ...

NFC North - Green Bay, Detroit, Chicago, Minnesota
NFC South - Atlanta, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Carolina
NFC East - Philadelphia, Dallas, NY Giants, Washington
NFC West - St Louis, Arizona, Seattle, San Francisco

Playoff teams in order - Atlanta, Green Bay, Philadelphia, St Louis, New Orleans, Dallas

Wildcard - Philadelphia vs New Orleans & St Louis vs Dallas
Semifinal - Atlanta vs Dallas & Green Bay vs Philadelphia
Conference Final - Green Bay vs Atlanta

AFC North - Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Cleveland, Cincinnati
AFC South - Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Tennessee
AFC East - New England, NY Jets, Miami, Buffalo
AFC West - San Diego, Kansas City, Oakland, Denver

Playoff teams in order - San Diego, New England, Pittsburgh, Houston, NY Jets, Baltimore

Wildcard - Pittsburgh vs Baltimore & Houston vs NY Jets
Semifinal - San Diego vs Houston & New England vs Pittsburgh
Conference Final - San Diego vs New England

Super Bowl - San Diego vs Green Bay

Champion - San Diego
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Now this is what my mind is telling me.  But if I look at the Vikings schedule closer and try very hard to be as hopeful as possible then I could see the Vikings doing this ...

@San Diego - Loss
Tampa Bay - Win
Detroit - Win
@Kansas City - Loss
Arizona - Win
@Chicago - Loss
Green Bay - Loss * first home loss
@ Carolina - Win * first road win
@ Green Bay - Loss
Oakland - Win
@Atlanta - Loss
Denver - Win
@Detroit - Loss
New Orleans - Win *critical win here
@Washington - Win
Chicago - Win

... if the Vikings can pull off a 9-7 then I think they MAY be able to sneak into the playoffs as a wildcard.

But my mind is saying to me that they could start out 3-5 with the only wins in the first 8 games coming against Detroit, Arizona, & Carolina.  I think they finish up 3-5 as well with wins against Oakland, Denver, & Washington.  That puts them at 6-10 for the year.

It is hard to be very optimistic with the offensive line a serious question mark and the secondary too.

I am going to be rooting very hard for some surprise performances and a couple of wins snatched from the jaws of defeat.  The Vikings can do this and if they do not give any games away they stand a good chance of being above .500 and making the dance!

Therefore my final HOMER prediction for the 2011 season is ...

NFC North - Green Bay, Minnesota, Detroit, Chicago
NFC South - Atlanta, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Carolina
NFC East - Philadelphia, Dallas, NY Giants, Washington
NFC West - St Louis, Arizona, Seattle, San Francisco

Playoff teams in order - Atlanta, Philadelphia, Green Bay, St Louis, Minnesota, New Orleans

Wildcard - Green Bay vs New Orleans & St Louis vs Minnesota
Semifinal - Atlanta vs Minnesota & Philadelphia vs Green Bay
Conference Final - Philadelphia vs Minnesota

AFC North - Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Cleveland, Cincinnati
AFC South - Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Tennessee
AFC East - New England, NY Jets, Miami, Buffalo
AFC West - San Diego, Kansas City, Oakland, Denver

Playoff teams in order - San Diego, New England, Pittsburgh, Houston, NY Jets, Baltimore

Wildcard - Pittsburgh vs Baltimore & Houston vs NY Jets
Semifinal - San Diego vs Houston & New England vs Pittsburgh
Conference Final - San Diego vs New England

Super Bowl - San Diego vs Philadelphia

Champion - San Diego

Should I have went with my mind or is going with the heart better?
