2018 NFL Predictions

davis_neno6_sptsWe’re finally less than 24 hours from the first game of the 2018 NFL season. As I was working on my predictions, the realization came to be this could be one of the more competitive seasons in recent memory. Usually there are at least two to three teams who you’re confident will have plenty of struggles (think two to five wins) but that isn’t really the case this year. This could be due to so many teams being satisfied with their current quarterback situation. While there are still the “elite” options, so many teams either recently drafted a quarterback or invested in one that they feel comfortable entering 2018. This is an interesting trend to watch around the league over the next few years as teams continue to go “all in” while they have a possible franchise quarterback on a rookie deal. With that said, here are my predicted team records and end of year award winners for the 2018 season.
