2018 NFL Predictions

My 2017 NFL Predictions did not go so well. After predicting the New York Giants to take down the Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl LII, both teams instead found themselves picking in the Top 10 of the 2018 NFL Draft. My 2018 NFL Playoff Predictions, in which I picked the Minnesota Vikings to top the Kansas City Chiefs, did not fare much better. So it’s time for some redemption. With the NFL season set to kick off in just a few days, here are my 2018 NFL Predictions.
