NFL Predictions: Win/Loss Records, Division Standings & Future Odds

Predicting the National Football League is no easy task. Every year there are teams that come out of nowhere to surprise and others who fail to live up to expectations. It’s what makes pro football so great. So much can change from one year to the next. It’s why it’s critical to stay informed on all the teams and not just base your opinions on what happened last season.

Let’s just take a quick second here and look back at how the 2016 campaign played out. For starters, the two teams who played in the Super Bowl the previous year (Broncos & Panthers) didn’t even make the playoffs.

Carolina’s downward turn was the big shocker. After going a league-best 15-1 in 2015, the Panthers went a mere 6-10 in 2016. Last in the NFC South and the 8th worst record overall.

Digging a little deeper, only 2 of the 8 division winners in 2015 defended their title. One of those is the Patriots, who is the exception when it comes to parity in the league. New England has won 8 straight and 13 of the last 14 AFC East titles.

I’ve studied all the offseason moves and taken a close look at the schedules to compile my 2017 predictions. Below you will find my projected records on all 32 teams. I’ve also provided my division standings, future odds and playoff predictions. You can compare my results with the over/under win totals provided by Vegas to see if I think they are overrated or underrated this year.
