The 2015 NFL regular season is just around the corner and after previewing all 32 teams, it’s time to make my overall predictions on who will be the two teams fighting for the Lombardi Trophy at Super Bowl 50. Whoever it is, they will have a hard time topping last year’s Super Bowl showdown between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks, which came down to the final seconds to decide a winner.

The one thing that makes the NFL so great, is that you just never know which teams are going to surprise and which teams are going to fail to live up to expectations. Last year was another prime example of this. Out of the 12 teams who made the playoffs in 2013, only half of them made it back to the postseason in 2014. However, of the 6 new playoff teams, 5 had at least a .500 record (8-8) the previous year. The only exception being the Detroit Lions, who went from 7-9 to 11-5. At the same time, the Carolina Panthers went from going 12-4 to just 7-8-1, yet still managed to repeat as NFC South Champions.

I don’t know about you but the 2015 regular season can’t come soon enough! Here’s a look at how I see all 8 divisions playing out this season plus all of the current NFL odds as of early August.

Plus, if you want to bet the Super Bowl futures I give my prediction on who will be team celebrating at Levi’s Stadium (home of the San Francisco 49ers) on February 7.
