2019 Standings Contest Predictions

-by DNOMN8R314

Remember when I announced this contest? Neither do I.

But after a series of delays and, frankly, forgetfulness, I’ve finally compiled the entries for the 2019 NEPFF NFL Standings Contest and will announee the predictions.

I won’t rehash everyone’s guesses here (I will link the full set of predictions at the end of the post), but I will share the cumulative predictions.

AFC East:

  1. Patriots
  2. Bills
  3. Jets
  4. Dolphins

AFC North:

  1. Browns
  2. Ravens
  3. Steelers
  4. Bengals

AFC South:

  1. Texans
  2. Jaguars
  3. Titans
  4. Colts

AFC West:

  1. Chiefs
  2. Chargers
  3. Raiders
  4. Broncos

NFC East:

  1. Eagles
  2. Cowboys
  3. Redskins
  4. Giants

NFC North:

  1. Vikings
  2. Packers
  3. Bears
  4. Lions

NFC South:

  1. Falcons
  2. Saints
  3. Buccaneers
  4. Panthers

NFC West:

  1. Rams
  2. Seahawks
  3. 49ers
  4. Cardinals

AFC Wild Cards:

  1. Chargers
  2. Ravens

NFC Wild Cards:

  1. Saints
  2. Cowboys

Super Bowl matchup: Patriots vs. Saints

Super Bowl champion: Patriots

Some notes:

  • Most divisions were easy to accumulate into a group prediction: the top two teams and bottom two would be the same for all or most predictions, making the tally easy. The AFC North, AFC South, and NFC North were exceptions.
  • The Browns actually had the second-most votes for an AFC wild card spot, but as they were the cumulate AFC North division winner, they couldn’t go there in the cumulative. I decided the second wild card spot for both conferences by picking the team with the best cumulative ranking who was not a division winner. (Of course, that team had to be someone’s wild card selection.)
  • Only dp73 and I made notes about our picks, and he was the only one to pick a team other than New England to win Super Bowl LIV. (His choice was the Vikings.)

…football!

(Here’s the link to the full projections. Have fun!)

So what’s the word on Mahomes? I initially heard 3-4 weeks for a return. Today I heard 4-6 weeks. Granted it was from the guy at the store that is still gloating about how the Broncos injured him, but now I’m unsure what the prognosis is….

Calipatsfan3473

3 weeks from what I’ve read.

dfwpatsfan

Injuries to the patella take about 4-5 days to settle down. If he wears a knee brace, I think he can get back in three weeks.

MasterAndCommander

But it may affect his mobility, which is a big part of his game.

dfwpatsfan
Member

dfwpatsfan

He already has limited mobility due to his high ankle sprain, so he’s not 100% anyway. It might be closer to Week 13 till he gets fully healthy, but that depends on whether he can rest and KC can win enough games without him.

She did pretty well–she PR’d by 9 seconds over her previous best. CVU has tons of great runners, though, and will have even more coming next year so she’ll need to put in a ton of training next Spring and Summer if she wants to make any headway on even the JV team.

I’ve been saying this. Personnel-wise the Ravens have the secret sauce to crack our defense. Ultra-mobile QB, more than one 2 way TE. So they can put stress on our linebackers in coverage or run on our nickel.

SamiG
Member
Free agent
SamiG

Yeah, there’s no obvious gameplan for them. Likely need to spy Jackson, especially on 3rd downs. I think you have to just force Jackson to pick us apart through the air. Can’t imagine we let him run wild.

Bears should but they will be stubborn and probably give Mitch another year. I agree with Cali, Titans seem like a good match. Possibly Tampa as well.

Not saying Chicago will, but they should. Couple him with that defense and it seems like a good match. I agree with the Titans as well.
