2012 NFL Division Winner Predictions
The New England Patriots look to take over the AFC East once again this season, ending the season with a 12-4 record. The Patriots’ offense is just too powerful. With players that include Rob Gronkowski and Tom Brady, this team is close to unstoppable on offense. Other teams better watch out for this powerhouse squad.
In the AFC North, I have the Baltimore Ravens having another outstanding season with a 13-3 record. The Ravens have a great, lock-down defense and have a great running back in Ray Rice. And let’s not forget, the Ravens have arguably the best motivator and linebacker in the NFL, Ray Lewis. This season, it’s time for Joe Flacco to take over and be a true leader of this team.
There is no doubt that the Houston Texans will be in control of this division with a record of 12-4. This team has the experience and great players, now they just need to stay healthy and execute. The Texans have one of the best running backs in the game in Arian Foster as well as one of the best receivers, Andre Johnson. Houston also has Matt Schaub, a very good quarterback. If this team can stay healthy, they are a huge threat to win it all.
In this division, I have the Denver Broncos having an excellent season with a 10-6 record. In free-agency, they went out a got one of the best quarterbacks in the league, Peyton Manning, who will be a huge plus to this team as long as he stays healthy. Denver also has a very good and consistent defense. The Broncos are definitely a team to watch out for.
The NFC East is going to be a very tough division to compete in but I am going with the New York Giants, who will end up with a 10-6 record. Overall, this is an extremely good team with quarterback Eli Manning, great wide receiving threats, and a solid defense.
This division is going to be very competitive as well but the Green Bay Packers are going to take first place with a record of 13-3. This is a very good team with great wide receivers and arguably the best quarterback in the game, Aaron Rodgers.
In the NFC South, I have the New Orleans Saints taking this one with a 10-6 record. Even though this team has gone through a lot during the off-season, they still have great players, especially Drew Brees.
The San Francisco 49ers will be taking this division, no doubt. I see them ending the regular season with a 13-3 record. This team has an outstanding defense and a great offense. This is Alex Smith‘s time to shine. Overall, the 49ers have a great team.
