My NFL Playoff and Overall Placement Predictions for the 2019/2020 Season

in #nfllast year (edited)


The wait for NFL football is over. Football season is finally upon us in a few hours. I know it officially started on Thursday but that really was just a teaser unless you were a fan of the Packers or Bears. NFL football begins on that first Sunday. There isn't a better feeling to me than knowing that I can waste an entire Sunday dedicated to watching football. From 1 P.M. to 11 P.M. you can catch me in front of the TV.

I started this prediction series with the hopes that I would finish posting everything before the season began. I am proud I accomplished this goal. Even if I get it done late into the morning.

I predicted the record of each team by going through every single week of the NFL schedule and picking each team's record by their scheduled matchups. I completed these final standings while incorporating the NFL's official tie-breaking procedures as accurately as I could. It was pretty tricky at times, and tedious, but I think I did a pretty good job.

I also want to mention that I predicted the record for the Indianapolis Colts prior to Andrew Luck's retirement. I still think it's a good reference to see where I had the Colts before Luck retired, and then you as the reader can sort of still see where I see certain teams will generally finish.
