At this point, I "may" only be watching the Dallas Cowboys games.

I watch only the Texans. If everyone can stay healthy (big if) I think they will surprise.

Here’s to hope in the future. The Chiefs will either be a Cinderella team or have a ‘rebuilding year’. Anything better than 8-8 and I’ll be happy.

It's going to be an interesting season with two Carolinas, the San Diego Chargers and no LA Rams.

The Texans

I'm predicting J.J.Watt (Texans) will get hurt very early and continue on his TV commercial making and move along on his path to Hollywood. If we have a hurricane during the season, he will step up and start another fund raiser for the communities.

Our "new" last year quarterback will also promptly get injured and go on the hurt list again. Once again, the coach can make excuses for another losing season due to injuries.

We will get a new coach mid season. How many is that now?

Oops, Thanks! #2 is LARams (I read my sloppy notes as CAR instead of LAR); and I forgot the Chargers have moved to LA.

That would be the Raleigh Rams and the Charlotte Panthers.

I'm looking forward to a whole season of Jimmy Garoppolo under center for the Niners.

As a MN Vikings season ticket holder I'm looking forward to a good season. Biggest question mark is OL but we are pretty stacked at offensive skill positions and on defense. Injuries could also derail us as we are thin for depth at most places.


Don't expect 13-3 again as the schedule seems harder. Hopefully 11-12 wins and another NFC North title.

As an Eagles fan, I have to be prepared for a letdown this season.

It's OK. That's why we have training camp.

+1 (Vikings fan, but not a season ticket holder)

High hopes to start the season. I keep in mind, this is the Vikings and so expect the unexpected. Likely expect disappointment to reign.

Gave up my season tickets. First year of retirement and that just seemed like an expense I didn’t need to cover any longer. Gave the Lions 10 years, and while they got to be more fun to watch, I don’t see them at the SB anytime soon. I’ll spring for a game or two this season and go tailgate with the crew, but that line item on the budget is going to decrease significantly. One bright note is that opening day is MNF. That will make for a fun evening tailgating even if my contact for a ticket doesn’t come through.

The Bears jumped up several slots on the power rankings after that big trade a few days ago. Still, I will believe their improvement when I see it.
