With the NFL draft completed and the majority of notable free agents signed, fans have a good idea of what to expect from their team this upcoming season. I am NFL expert Kevin Eagleson, and in this article I will predict the winner of every division for the 2019 season.
NFC North - Bears
The NFC North is a talented division, but this is an easy first prediction. The Bears defense is the best in the league, and I think their well coached offense will take another step up as Mitchell Trubisky matures even more.
AFC North - Browns
I’d be silly to pick anyone over the loaded Cleveland roster. Yes, the coaching and chemistry still needs to be there, but it is impossible to bet against all the talent they have accumulated. I also think Baker Mayfield has a shot to be the league MVP this year.
NFC East - Cowboys
Sorry Eagles fans, the Cowboys defense has proved to be elite, and their offense features the best running back in the league, along with a consistent quarterback (something Wentz has yet to prove to be).
AFC East - Patriots
Jets and Bills both have extremely promising futures, but it is still a little too early for the second-year quarterback lead teams. This is still Brady’s division. Maybe next year.
NFC South - Saints
Probably the hardest decision, but Brees is playing too well and has too many weapons. Kamara, Mike Thomas, and now Jared Cook. Come on. That defense is no joke either. The Falcons still have a good chance to make the playoffs, but the Saints certainly take the division.
AFC South - Colts
Andrew Luck is legit. They have weapons all over that offense and a talented young defense. This is my 100% guaranteed lock. Colts win the South.
NFC West - Rams
I don’t think they’re season is as successful as last year, but at the end of the day they’re just about as well coached as it gets. Gurley might be limited, but we saw the Ram’s make CJ Anderson look like a star, I think they’ll survive. Last year was almost all offense, but I think this year the defense steps up and wins some games for LA.
AFC West - Chargers
The chargers have one of the most complete rosters in the league. Philip River’s veteran leadership will lead the Chargers last the Pat Mahomes-lead Chiefs.
