2016 NFL Predictions

16912989-mmmainFootball is finally upon us. Since early February, we all have been waiting for this exact moment. At this time, all 32 teams are undefeated and obviously have the same goal of claiming the Lombardi Trophy as the season ends. Unfortunately, while the NFL prides itself on parody which would lead to new contenders emerging every year, that isn’t always the case. Yes, there is parody in terms of four or five new playoff teams each season. However when it comes down to the end, odds are it comes down to the usual suspects.

My Super Bowl prediction is the equivalent of taking two one seeds to meet in the NCAA Tournament final, but as we enter the year it’s as good a guess as any. Regardless of what happens it should be a compelling and very exciting season of football.
