The theme to this season is health and who can make it through the newly instituted 17-game schedule and enter the playoffs healthy.
Who cares how your team looks on paper? We deal with who is on the field. Kyler Murray and Hopkins are back and healthy to strike fear into any divisional foe who thought the Cards were a joke, while the Bears, Giants, Eagles, and Saints suffer the loss of their signal callers.
As of week 13, here are my picks:
American Football Conference
East — Patriots. Showed us they could win with their running game
North — Ravens. Lost key secondary personnel but feel that the team is too talented not to win the North.
South — Colts. With the loss of Derrick Henry, the Titans don’t pose a threat anymore.
West — Chiefs. Patty and the boys have too much talent and experience
National Football Conference
East — WFT. They are tough and placed with a chip on their shoulder, plus Dallas will “Dallas” once again
North — Packers. That was easy
South — Injuries decimated that division; Tampa is the only healthy team left.
West — Cards. Seattle is too far in the hole, and San Fran can’t win the games they should.
See you next week!!
