Predicting the Records for Every NFC Team in 2017

NFC North

1) Green Bay Packers (11-5)

The Packers still have huge question marks in the secondary, but as long as they have Rodgers, they are a contender.

2) Minnesota Vikings (9-7)

The Vikings defense gives them a shot at the playoffs. Lack of offensive weapons limits it to a wild card chance.

3) Detroit Lions (8-8)

The Lions without a late season injury to Matthew Stafford would have won the NFC North last year. But, they have big questions on defense and very little running game.

4) Chicago Bears (3-13)

The Bears have a solid offensive line and little else.

NFC West

1) Seattle Seahawks (11-5)

The Seahawks still have a top-notch defense plus a big-time QB, the questions will be on the offensive line.

2) Arizona Cardinals (7-9)

If Palmer has anything left they could become a contender, but I think that is highly unlikely.

3) San Francisco 49ers (5-11)

The defense is solid, but they need a complete overhaul on the offensive side of the ball.

4) Los Angeles Rams (4-12)

A great defensive front and little else, it will take the Rams a couple of years at least to build this team. I do think they have the right coaching staff to do it.

NFC East

1) New York Giants (12-4)

The Giants’ defense should be better than last year and they were good last year. The offense will be explosive. It looks like a good year to be a Giants fan.

2) Dallas Cowboys (10-6)

The defense will limit how far this team can go.

3) Philadelphia Eagles (9-7)

The Eagles have upgraded the offensive side of the ball in the off-season and should be solid on defense. Another off-season like this last one and the Eagles could be big-time contenders next year.

4) Washington Redskins (6-10)

I predict that this will be Jay Gruden’s final season in Washington.

NFC South

1) Atlanta Falcons (12-4)

The effects of last year’s Super Bowl do worry me here, but the roster is so loaded it’s hard to predict them not making the playoffs.

2) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (10-6)

The Bucs will be very formidable this season, my only concern is Jameis Winston. If he progresses as a QB, they could win more and make a deep run in the playoffs.

3) New Orleans Saints (9-7)

If only they had a defense?

4) Carolina Panthers (8-8)

The Panthers will be improved, but they are in a tough division and the schedule is a real bear.

Wild Card Playoffs

(6) Tampa Bay 24 ย @ ย (3) Seattle 27

(5) Dallas 20 @ (4) Green Bay 37

Divisional Playoffs

Green Bay 21 ย @ Atlanta ย 38

Seattle 13 ย @ Giants ย 24

NFC Championship

Giants 23 @ Atlanta 27
