Basically what the title says, I'll predict division standings, playoff matchups, award winners . . . * indicates wildcard.

AFC East

1. 13-3 New England Patriots - Coud look a lot like their '07 team

2. 9-7 Buffalo Bills - Terrell Owens should help, but not a lot

3. 8-8 Miami Dolphins - Fluke season from QB and average defense

4. 6-10 New York Jets - Mark Sanchez or Kellen Clemens?  Is neither an option?

 

AFC North

1. 12-4 Pittsburgh Steelers - Basically everyone returning

2. 10-6 Baltimore Ravens* - Losing key defensive players hurt but Joe Flacco is a stud

3. 6-10 Cincinatti Bengals - Carson Palmer is back, still a good QB

4. 5-11 Cleveland Browns - Basically a mess everywhere

 

AFC South

1. 11-4 Indianapolis Colts - Nine game winning streak to end the season

2. 9-7 Houston Texans* - Could have one of the best offenses in AFC

3. 8-8 Tennessee Titans - No Albert Haynesworth and no passing game

4. 6-10 Jacksonville Jaguars - Maurice Jones-Drew can win a few games on his own

 

AFC West

1. 11-5 San Diego Chargers - No competition in this weak division

2. 6-10 Kansas City Cheifs - Matt Cassell will be their best QB in years

3. 5-11 Oakland Raiders - They'll go as far as their defense takes them

4. 3-13 Denver Broncos - Brandon Marshall could really ruin this team

NFC East

1. 11-5 Philadelphia Eagles - Dangerous from every part of the field

2. 9-7 Washington Redskins* - Make it or break it year for Jason Campbell

3. 8-8 Dallas Cowboys - They still have Tony Romo and DeMarcus Ware

4. 8-8 New York Giants - Eli Manning played well in contract year but '09 is different

 

NFC North

1. 9-7 Chicago Bears - This team is boom or bust, especially with Jay Cutler

4. 7-9 Detroit Lions - Totally revamped team looks great on paper

 

NFC South

1. 12-4 Atlanta Falcons - Young players just keep improving

2. 12-4 Carolina Panthers* - Steve Smith is the seller here

3. 8-8 New Orleans Saints - Drew Brees is great but Reggie Bush must do better

NFC West

1. 8-8 Arizona Cardinals - Defense and old QB is shakey

2. 7-9 Seattle Seahawks - Basically fell apart last season

3. 6-10 San Francisco 49ers - If they get a good QB, they could sniff the playoffs

4. 2-14 St. Louis Rams - Awful, just awful
