Now that I have thoroughly analyzed the upcoming college football season, it is time for me to publish my third annual NFL preseason football guide. 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.
Without further ado, here are the teams I am predicting to disappoint this season. These teams are ordered in the relative disparity between my picks and the experts average while also taking into account the significance of each pick.
