Rather than swamp readers with the whole shebang of NFL picks in one post, this season Red will pick each division over the next week or so and then wrap up before the season starts with his post-season picks and award winners. But first the bad news.
2016 Season Recap
Red’s NFC division champions were the Giants, Panthers, Cardinals and Vikings. Wild cards were the Buccaneers and Packers. Of that motley crew only the Packers and Giants were playing in January. 2 out of 6 in the playoffs. Ugh!
Red’s AFC division champions were the Patriots, Raiders, Jaguars (Ha!), and Bengals. Wild cards were the Jets (spit take) and Broncos. Patriots and Raiders came through for another 2 out of 6 in the playoffs. Barf!
Red’s 4 out of 12 is his worst season ever. That’s at least 10 Hail Marys, alms to the poor and giving up Diet Dr. Pepper for the season.
Red did pick Khalil Mack as Defensive Player of the Year – but how hard was that?
First up this season – the AFC East.
