Predicting and previewing the NFL

By now, you probably have seen my predictions on how the NFC South will shake out in 2011.

But those aren’t the only predictions I had to make. As part of our panel of “experts," I had to predict the winner of every division, the wild-card teams, the AFC champion, the NFC champion and the Super Bowl winner. We also had to predict a coach of the year, MVP, an offensive rookie of the year and a defensive rookie of the year.

Here’s the link to the page with predictions from the entire panel. And, below, you’ll find all of my predictions.
