Brad’s 2020 NFL Preview: AFC Regular Season Predictions

Now that I have thoroughly analyzed the hypothetical college football season, I have decided to engage in a similar analysis for the National Football League.  I have never made a set of pro football preseason predictions before, but given the uncertainty of the college season in 2020, I thought I would do some NFL analysis in case that is the only game in town this fall.  Much like my college preview, I have gone through and analyzed every NFL team’s regular season and postseason, as well as selected my disappointment and surprise teams and upsets to watch out for.  Here are the release dates for each of my predictions and articles.

August 16- AFC Regular Season Predictions

August 17- NFC Regular Season Predictons

August 18- AFC Postseason Predictions

August 19- NFC Postseason Predictions and Super Bowl Prediction

August 20- Comprehensive NFL Power Rankings

August 23- Regular Season Upset Picks

The records below include all regular season games but do not include playoff games, which will be analyzed in a later entry.  The teams marked in bold font are the ones predicted to make the 2020 NFL playoffs. Without further ado, here is my first-ever NFL preview guide.
