Now that NFL schedules have officially been released, we can start making predictions across the league. We polled the majority of the staff here at Canal Street Chronicles to pick division winners, along with comedian Theo Von as our celebrity guest picker. Of course we all picked the New Orleans Saints to win the NFC South, but here are the rest of our picks:
Among the CSC staff polled, only the New Orleans Saints, Kansas City Chiefs, and Baltimore Ravens were unanimous division winners.
The NFC East had the most disagreement among everyone - with five picking the Dallas Cowboys, four picking the Philadelphia Eagles, and one picking the New York Giants. Personally, I think the Cowboys lost too much this offseason on defense in Byron Jones and Robert Quinn. The Eagles have finally addressed wide receiver with Jalen Reagor, their lone tragic flaw from 2019, so I give the East to Philly.
We were also pretty evenly split in the AFC South, with four picking the Houston Texans, four taking the Indianapolis Colts, and another picking last year’s division winner Tennessee Titans. For me, I don’t like Houston’s offense besides Deshaun Watson, and I don’t trust Ryan Tannehill at quarterback.
There was general near-consensus with the rest of the NFL predictions.
