Texans at 5-11? They were 8-8 last year with 0 defense. If they add Nnamadi, they could be a playoff team.

The Steelers should win the AFC North. Otherwise I agree with most of your predictions.

I think this is the year the Ravens get over the hump concerning the Steelers.

Agreed on that front.

I agree that the Jets will take a step backwards this year.
As for the Ravens getting over the hump .. Not gonna happen my friend. The team didn't improve at all from last year. In fact, they lost some great players. Their passing game will be one of the worst amongst the better teams in the NFL and the defense will continue to get weaker. The Steelers will win the AFC North again.

7-9 are you serious? how in the world are we going to win 7 games? With our QB lineup, usual new coaching staff, major LOSS in our secondary, same old dirt infield till October the Raiders will be lucky to beat the any team.
3-13 more likely.

You're very pessimistic. I've always been a fan of Jason Campbell, he's really not that bad. Darren McFadden in your backfield is very comforting, a lot of teams would like to have him on their team. Defensively you guys aren't all that bad at all, though you did lose Asomugha, like you said ...
I think 7-9 or 8-8 is a good estimate for your Raiders.
