NFL 2015-2016 Season Predictions

Ross Olson

AFC East: New England Patriots

AFC North: Pittsburgh Steelers

AFC South: Indianapolis Colts

AFC West: San Diego Chargers

NFC East: Dallas Cowboys

NFC North: Green Bay Packers

NFC South: Atlanta Falcons

NFC West: Seattle Seahawks

AFC Conference Champion: Indianapolis Colts

NFC Conference Champion: Seattle Seahawks

NFL MVP: Jimmy Graham

Super Bowl: Seattle Seahawks 31, Indianapolis Colts 27

After a heartbreaking loss in the Super Bowl a season ago, the Seattle Seahawks have the right tools to rebound in 2015. The Seahawks are bringing back virtually the same extraordinary defense that has gotten them to the Super Bowl two years in a row. On the offensive side of the ball, Seattle traded for one of the game’s top tight ends in Jimmy Graham, added veteran running back Fred Jackson and drafted speedster receiver/return man Tyler Lockett. Despite playing in a tough division, look for Seattle to make it back to the Super Bowl for a third straight year.

AFC West: Denver Broncos

NFC East: Philadelphia Eagles

NFC North: Green Bay Packers

NFC South: New Orleans Saints

NFC West: Arizona Cardinals

AFC Conference Champion:

New England Patriots

NFC Conference Champion: Arizona Cardinals

NFL MVP: Carson Palmer

Super Bowl: Arizona Cardinals 31, New England Patriots 28

Some may call me bold, but my NFL Super Bowl pick this year will be the Arizona Cardinals. Am I favoring my hometown team? Absolutely. But ever since my father offered me a television in my room if the Cardinals won the Super Bowl, I’ve had hope. You may call me a dreamer. But Palmer has probably one good season left in him, and Larry Fitzgerald will always be on point. Cardinals will win this year, you mark my words.

I have the Seahawks making their third Super Bowl appearance in a row and winning their second title in three years. Other than the Packers, the NFC doesn’t really have another team that is a legitimate threat to Seattle. The Seahawks’ defense will continue to be elite, and the addition of Jimmy Graham should make for a much more potent offense. That makes Seattle the most complete team in the league, in my opinion, so it’d be difficult for me to pick someone other than them to win it all.

AFC East: New England Patriots

AFC North: Pittsburgh Steelers

AFC West: Kansas City Chiefs

AFC South: Indianapolis Colts

NFC East: Dallas Cowboys

NFC North: Green Bay Packers

NFC West: Seattle Seahawks

NFC South: New Orleans Saints

AFC Conference Champion: Indianapolis Colts

NFC Conference Champion:

Green Bay Packers

NFL MVP: Andrew Luck

Super Bowl: Green Bay Packers 34, Indianapolis Colts 24

The Green Bay Packers come into this season with a chip on their shoulder after their unforgettable collapse in last year’s NFC Championship game. They have reigning league MVP Aaron Rodgers in his prime and even with the loss of their top receiver, Jordy Nelson, they still have plenty of weapons on offense. The Packers should have an improved defense as they get B.J. Raji back on their defensive line and hope to finally have a healthy Clay Matthews for a full season. Barring any major injuries, the Lombardi Trophy is coming back home.
