2010 NFL Win/Loss Projections, Season Standings

For these predictions I went through every NFL game this year and chose who I thought was going to win each game. I didn’t pay attention to a team winning 6 in a row or a team losing 6 in a row, I just picked the games as I thought they would go as individual games. A screenshot of my picks can be viewed here. Quite a few things surprised me. I would consider myself a notorious Patriots hater, but I came up with 13 wins for them, I also really like the Dolphins, 49ers and Panthers this year but think the Bengals, Cardinals and Saints all drop off from last year. If you’re a Browns or Bills fan, I’m sorry, but that’s what I came up with for wins.

I made these predictions on July 31 and August 1, so the last major news was Domonique Foxworth’s injury. Anything after that has not been factored in. A Ryan Mathews holdout or a big time player injury would affect these projections/predictions, but I won’t be updating them from this point forward.
