    Default NFL--Lets Rank Em--Top 5

    Here's my top 5.

    1. Seattle
    2. Denver
    3. Cinncinatti
    4. Carolina
    5. San Diego

    I think Denver would have won at their place.

    Today:

    1.) Aaron Rodgers' Green Bay Packers

    2.) Bill Belichick's New England Patriots

    3.) Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos

    4.) The 2-0 Arizona Cardinals

    5.) The 2-0 Cincinnati Bengals




    Aaron Rodgers' Packers are nearly a touchdown favorite (a 6.5-point favorite) over Wingfoot's Chiefs on Monday Night Football at Green Bay.......................

    The Packers are widely regarded as one of the best teams in the league, and they have arguably the best quarterback in the NFL. They also have one of the best home field advantages in the NFL. It is no surprise that the Packers are the favorites. The Chiefs have the type of team that can keep this game close. The Packers have the ability to blow this game open and will reflect a competitive game in the fourth quarter.

    An interesting side note, the Kansas City Chiefs have never lost to the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field!

    "Yes, Lambeau Field is similar to Arrowhead," Chief's head coach Andy Reid said recently, via quotes from the Chiefs. "It's one of those places that makes the NFL the NFL, what this league is. It's part of history. Both places are part of history in this league. There's that element, but you really focus in on the football team. When you're playing a team there, that's what you do, when you're coaching a team there, you're not really worried about, ‘this is Lambeau.' You're worried about that opponent coming in and trying to win. And it's vice versa when you're on the other side of it. It's no different."

    It's tough to predict the Chiefs to win, but they do have the type of team that can make this a GREAT game!

    Default NFL--Lets Rank Em--Top 5


    The Patriots have averaged about three losses per season in the past seven years, which have included three trips to the Super Bowl trips and two championships. The forever-caveat when it comes to Bill Belichick’s team is that they’ll be fine in the regular season so long as nothing happens to Tom Brady. New England should easily win their 14th AFC East title in the last 15 years in 2017.

    Pivotal game: Week 10 at Broncos. New England’s second-half schedule is loaded, and the Patriots head to Denver coming off their Week 9 bye. They’ll face consecutive high-altitude games when they face the Raiders in Mexico City the following week, so getting a win in Denver (where Brady is 3–7 all-time) would be a good way to set the tone for the start of their second half.


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    2.) Green Bay Packers





    Projected record: 13–3

    Aaron Rodgers will be throwing to Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Martellus Bennett this season, so let’s go ahead and give the Packers the NFC North crown. This offense won’t have trouble outscoring opponents—I only have the Packers dropping one game (to Dallas) before Week 16, when they can go into cruise control.

    Pivotal game: Week 2 at Falcons. I have the Packers winning this early game because I’m not sure what Atlanta’s offense will look like without Kyle Shanahan calling plays. In two of the past three years Green Bay has had slow starts (R-E-L-A-X), so getting this W after facing Seattle in Week 1 will have Rodgers rolling toward a season where he could win his third NFL MVP.


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    3.) Pittsburgh Steelers





    Projected record: 12–4

    The Steelers boast the best offensive trio in football in Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown; had Bell been healthy, his team likely would have put up more of a fight in the 2017 AFC title game in January. This season, Pittsburgh should start 5–0 before facing Kansas City with games against the Browns, Vikings, Bears, Ravens and Jaguars on the slate.

    Pivotal game: Week 15 vs. Patriots. By this point both teams should be in the playoffs with their division titles (almost) wrapped up. The Patriots have participated in the past six AFC title games, so the odds are good that the Steelers will have to get past New England in the postseason. The best way to prepare for the Patriots in January is to play them in December.


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------








    Projected record: 11–5

    The Chiefs’ opponents will spend all off-season trying to figure out a way to stop Tyreek Hill, and two things will happen: either the team won’t stop him, or it will but it won’t matter. Andy Reid has a team that can score on offense, defense and special teams—even after losing Dontari Poe (and with a healthy Justin Houston, Eric Berry and Marcus Peters), Kansas City can be a top-five scoring defense.

    Pivotal game: Week 11 at Giants. You’re going to get tired of seeing the Chiefs this year with their six scheduled primetime games (the sixth is a Week 15 Saturday match against the Chargers). But a game that has the potential to be just as good—if not better—than those is the mid-November tilt in New York. The Giants defense can slow the Chiefs, and Odell Beckham Jr. vs. Peters will be great theater.


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    5.) Denver Broncos





    Projected record: 11–5

    If Trevor Siemian is their guy, the Broncos better hope he’s the first-half-of-2016 Siemian and not the one from the second half. To start the season last year, Siemian threw eight touchdowns and just three interceptions en route to a 5–1 record. But he skidded to the finish, throwing ten touchdowns and seven picks with a 3–5 record. The Broncos still have their defense, but 27th in total offensive yards will have them sitting at home in January again.

    Pivotal game: Week 9 at Eagles. It drives me crazy when people misuse “trap game.” This is what a trap game truly is: when there are big games on either side of what appears to be a less-meaningful game, said game is trapped. The Broncos travel to Kansas City on Monday night in Week 8 and host New England on Sunday night in Week 10. In between is a trip to Philly. Don’t get trapped.


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------








    Projected record: 11–5

    Five primetime games in 2017? The Raiders are back, baby! ...Well, as long as Derek Carr comes back healthy from his broken leg. Oakland opens with three of its first four on the road. I have them dropping games in Tennessee and Denver as the Raiders try to find the same magic from the first 15 games last season. After that, the machine that Reggie McKenzie has built should get double-digit wins again.

    Pivotal game: Week 7 vs. Chiefs. Kansas City went undefeated in the AFC West last year and beat the Raiders by a combined 24 points in their two meetings. In fact, it was Carr’s lackluster performances against the Chiefs (52 percent completion rate, one touchdown, one interception) that doomed his MVP chances. Oakland needs this Thursday night home win.

    Greetings mattm211! Geezus! R-E-L-A-X! Check out the Westgate Las Vegas Super Book Super Bowl LLII odds. Vegas is giving the Cowboys a lot of LUV this season. I only wished Vegas had as much luv for my team as they do yours:

    The 2018 Super Bowl is scheduled for Sunday, February 8, 2018. Super Bowl LII will be played at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.




    The New England Patriots go into the 2018 season as the favorites. The defending champions beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in overtime in February to win their fifth Super Bowl title. QB Tom Brady won another Super Bowl MVP award.

    Below, find the 2018 Super Bowl odds ahead of the 2017 NFL Draft.

    2018 Super Bowl odds

    The New England Patriots have the best odds to win Super Bowl LII. On the Westgate Las Vegas Super Book, the Patriots opened at 6-1 and are now 3-1.

    The defending NFC champion Atlanta Falcons are at 14-1, behind six teams. mattm211 's Dallas Cowboys, who led the conference with a 13-3 record, are behind only the Patriots at 8-1 and favored to be the NFC match up for Tom Brady's AFC Patriots in Super Bowl LII. We shall see.

    Other good bets to win it all: Mark's Green Bay Packers at 10-1, and the Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders and Seattle Seahawks at 12-1.
