The NFL 2013/2014 season is upon us. Some teams have already reported to training camp and the rest will do so over the coming weeks. One of the most fun things to do is to predict who will win each division, who will make the playoffs, who will be in the Super Bowl, and which players will win the MVP, and who will be named Defensive and Offensive Players of the Year.
That was the task of the Sports Unbiased writers this week (and this is part one of a 3-part series so look for the remaining two parts in the coming weeks). To predict who they think will do just that. The following writers participated – Rich Stowe, Adam Solowiei, Kimani Gregoire, Chevy Daniels, Wesley Dotson, Mike Fabber, Kureen Paige, Tim Stephenson, Brian Podoll, Derek McVay, Scott Swingle, and Zach Cintron.
Let’s jump right into it and start with which team each writer thinks will win each division. We’ll start in the AFC and then move on to the NFC.
We will list the teams and who voted for each, then determine the consensus. There will also be a poll after each so that you can vote as well.
Only two teams received votes.
New England Patriots – Rich, Kimani, Wesley, Mike, Kureen, Brian, Derrick, Scott, and Tim
