2010 NFL Predictions



There are my elaborate predictions for the 2010 NFL Season.

Most notable is my prediction of the Titans' trip to the Super Bowl. I love the Vince Young / Chris Johnson combo and believe the Titans will give teams a lot more trouble than they are expecting. Let's not forget that the Titans were a serious contender in 2008. Though they fell apart early in 2009, Vince Young's reassertion as the starting quarterback fueled them on a late season run that saw them nearly make the playoffs.

No one saw the 2008 Cardinals coming either. Mark it down, Titans in the Super Bowl.

Aside from that, I have the Jets failing to live up to expectations and finishing an even 8-8, a step back from last season. I predicted this based largely on their tougher schedule and doubts about the abilities of Mark Sanchez. Some people seem to forget that the green quarterback threw 20 interceptions last season. The Jets took a step back in the running game when they released rushing leader Thomas Jones and veteran guard Alan Faneca. Sanchez is going to have to throw more and, based on last year and the pre-season, I'm not sure if he's ready.

Zeroing in on the Patriots, I have New England winning the division but falling short of the ultimate prize in a divisional round loss to the Steelers. With question marks in the Patriots' defense and expectations for the Steeler's defense to return to '08 form, I can't picture the Pats lasting in a shootout with Pittsburgh.

I see New England's two year losing streak to the Colts ending as the yearly match-up will be taking place in Foxborough this time. I can envision the Pats winning tough games against the Vikings and Chargers (whom figure to be slightly handicapped this year) but ultimately falling short against elite talents like Pittsburgh and the Packers.
