The 2014 NFL regular season started on Thursday night with the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks spanking the Green Bay Packers 36-16. For the record, I picked the Packers prior to the game. So, I’m already in midseason form when it comes to predictions.
Undeterred, I will continue to make prognostications throughout the year and I may even get a few right.
That being said, here is I how believe the standings will look for the National Football League in 2014.
AFC Wild Cards — Bengals, Chargers
AFC Champ — Colts
NFC Wild Cards — Bears, 49ers
NFC Champ — Seahawks
Super Bowl Champ — Seahawks
I know repeating is hard, but the Seahawks are the most complete team in the league. I do not expect any sort of Super Bowl hangover from this group. Barring injuries, they should be able to become the first back-to-back NFL champions since the Patriots accomplished that feat almost a decade ago.
