Patriots, Jets, Bills, Fin - Bills will be ok. Miami will be awful 

Chiefs, Chargers, Broncos, Raiders - Easy pick really.

Steelers, Browns, Ravens, Bengals - Browns will be next year. Steelers will be ok, lost a lot of games on kicks last year

Colts, Texans, Jags, Titans - If Luck is not fit then... Mariota is garbage

Wild cards - Chargers & Browns/Ravens

 

Eagles, Cows, Giants, Redskins - Redskins are truly awful. Giants not much better. Don't like Zak

Vikings, Bears, Packers, Lions - Could go either way. Very close as always

Saints, Falcons, Panthers, Bucs - Brees is gone, but i can't see Cam lasting a season. Falcons could actually win this.

Rams, Hawks, 9ers, Cards - Cards could do well early. Jimmy G yet to do it

Wild cards - Based on the above, Falcons & Hawks but it could be anyone here. 

Championship games

Colts v Chiefs

Rams v Eagles

Cheers!  Some interesting picks.

He's not even 30 yet. With the amount of money players make and the hits that modern players take I wouldn't be surprised if more players under 30 decide that enough is enough and get out before injuries take too much of a toll.

Difficult to see how it can be otherwise, unless one of them really fouls up somewhere and the committee has to make their game the semi final.

He has taken a lot of big hits in his career and this is the right decision.

It does leave the Colts in a bad situation though.

And Clemson start off by rolling over Georgia Tech.

Not many shocks yesterday. My acca didn't come in though as I went off piste and backed Missouri to win at Wyoming.

The BBC online showing this year’s Britbowl between the London Warriors and Tamworth Phoenix.

Reminds me of travelling down to watch the Manchester All-Stars (or was it Spartans?) vs the London Ravens at the final at Loftus Rd in the mid 80s!

Asks the question regarding helmets and should they be ditched completely, if they really want to address the concussion problem then absolutely.

Would it change the sport, yes, massively, tackling in the air would likely be banned, in fact receiving as a whole would change radically as it's the blind side hit that causes most problems with 18-19 stone inside linebackers wiping you out just as you are catching the ball or contacting the ground. Pads for sure would be needed but fewer, there would have to be a lot of adaptions quite honestly and likely be closer to the games of the turn of the 20th C

Would concussions still occur, yes, would it mean that players have to take far greater care, yes, massively more than they do now.

However I just can't see it happening.

Antonio Brown has been cut by the Raiders and signed by the Patriots on the eve of the new season.

Reminds me a little of when Randy Moss was picked up by New England.

First game up for the Patriots is of course Pittsburgh!

Well shot of,great payer but a complete door handle,that's 2 teams he's left in the lurch.

The Browns being the Browns 😂


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Maybe Mayfield waits before running his mouth in future?

Anyone else watching Redzone on Sky Sports Mix?

Think it’s the only place us long suffering Washington fans are going to get to see the team play this year.

I’m struggling to think of any other format of sports programming that makes six hours seem so short, do love Redzone action!

Red zone is excellent  tho I would watch a full game on sky if they had Jason and Osi who do the show on the beeb with Mark Chapman.

Kansas: This is going to be "our" year. Superbowl bound.

Arizona: Started off rubbish but will come good.

Minnesota, Tampa: Started off average but will come good.

Detroit, Cleveland: Their fans deserve a good season. Hope they get one.
