Green Bay to win.

Went through all 17 weeks predicting each game winner to get all the standings (al had to sort out a few tie breakers for the seedings). I’m surprised at how few wins I have given Detroit and Baltimore but that’s how it worked out.

Wow.

1. Don't see anyone waltzing away with that division by 3 games this season. GB don't have enough all round to do that. Lions are worth at least 6 wins, minimum.

2. Same again. Don't see any team winning out the NFC East by 2 clear games, and certainly not the Eagles even with change afoot.

3. Can't see the Saints bouncing back to win the division just because the coach is back. That defence still has holes. Big ones. The addition of Jackson in Atlanta makes them favourite for the division and a play-off run.

4. No way, no way the West is won by a 13-3 record. And the Seahawks with 5 games at 10am Pacific time on the road get to 13-3? Not a chance. 11-5 to win that division I think. Rams have 8 wins in them.

5. Not sure what the reasoning is here. 12-4 for Cincy with their schedule? Not for me. Don't see the Steelers winning 11 either. Baltimore should win more than 7.

6. New England won't lose 7 games. Not with their slate. Bills at 13-3? Sorry, 4 games out at least there. 7-9, 8-8 maybe.

7. Indy 13-3? Too many teams with tape now. Could be close with the Texans, but not win the division with 13 wins and 2 games clear.

8. Broncos won't win 13 games this year. Too many questions on defence/injuries/suspensions early on. Chiefs are better than 6 wins. 11-5 Denver, 9-7 Chiefs.

Agreed.

When is the last time two teams from the same division went 13-3?

13-3 teams are usually paired with 10-6 teams at best in a really strong top-tier division. To go 13-3, you usually need to play in a crummy division where everyone else is 9-7 or 8-8.

12-4 apiece is plausible. But only losing 3 games? And they play each other twice? That doesn't make much sense.

Of the 2012 NFC 'contenders', I felt Green Bay needed the most work to step up in 2013.

I'm not sure they've done enough to even hold ground, let alone mount a championship challenge.

Found this yesterday. You have to predict by team rather than by week and the tiebreakers aren't implemented, but it's a good way to kill a bit of time until kickoff.

Found a few surprises when I was playing around with it, including the Bills doing much better than I would've thought. May have another go later.

Using the link, I picked every result without ever looking at the totals until the end.

AFC East
Patriots 11-5
Dolphins 9-7
Bills 4-12
Jets 2-14

AFC North
Ravens 11-5
Steelers 11-5
Bengals 10-6
Browns 5-11

AFC South
Texans 12-4
Colts 9-7
Titans 4-12
Jaguars 3-13

AFC West
Broncos 15-1
Chargers 6-10
Chiefs 6-10
Raiders 2-14

Ravens beat Bengals
Patriots beat Steelers

Broncos beat Patriots
Texans beat Ravens

Broncos beat Texans

NFC East
Giants 11-5
Redskins 9-7
Cowboys 7-9
Eagles 6-10

NFC North
Packers 11-5
Bears 9-7
Lions 8-8
Vikings 6-10

NFC South
Falcons 12-4
Saints 11-5
Buccaneers 5-11
Panthers 4-12

NFC West
49ers 14-2
Seahawks 11-5
Rams 8-8
Cardinals 4-12

Saints beat Giants
Packers beat Seahawks

49ers beat Saints
Packers beat Falcons

49ers beat Packers

Broncos beat 49ers


On reflection I would have Arizona and Indy winning a couple more and maybe the Texans, 49ers and Steelers winning a couple less.

I also don't think that three 11-5 teams will get wildcard spots its unlikely to end that high.

Nice little tool. Will give it a go! There goes half an hour of my life

__NFC
NY Giants 10-6 4th
Philadelphia 10-6 5th
Washington 8-8
Dallas 6-10

Green Bay 12-4 1st
Chicago 9-7
Detroit 9-7
Minnesota 3-13

Atlanta 12-4 3rd
Tampa Bay 8-8
New Orleans 8-8
Carolina 4-12

Seattle 12-4 2nd
San Fran 10-6 6th
St. Louis 9-7
Arizona 7-9

____ AFC


New Engl 11-5 4th
Miami 5-11
Buffalo 4-12
NY Jets 3-13

Baltimore 11-5 3rd
Pittsburgh 11-5 5th
Cleveland 9-7
Cincinnati 8-8

Houston 15-1 1st
Indianapolis 10-6 6th
Jacksonville 5-11
Tennessee 3-13

Denver 12-4 2nd
San Diego 6-10
Oakland 3-13
Kansas C 3-13

This is after going through every game with the linked thing. Only 2 teams are non repeats so yeah that probably wont be right. Don't think Seattle, Cleveland or Houston will win as many as I gave them so that will change things.

Saved link here for myself so I cna go back and check a few weeks from now
