2019 NFL Season Picks

The 2019 NFL season is upon us with the Chicago Bears playing host to the Green Bay Packers on opening night. This matchup pits the team that won the NFC North last season (Chicago) against their longtime biggest division rivals from Green Bay, who’re looking to reclaim the division with a new coaching staff in place that Aaron Rodgers is eager to get to work with. It should be a great game with the top flight Bears defense going at it with Aaron Rodgers and the high octane offense of the Packers. It’s truly a great way to start the 2019 season without featuring the reigning champs (New England).

We witnessed an incredible 2018 season that saw youngster Pat Mahomes take the league by storm and capture his first NFL MVP award and guide the Chiefs all the way to an overtime loss in the AFC Title game. We also saw rookie quarterbacks take over the league as Baker Mayfield (Cleveland), Sam Darnold (New York Jets), Josh Allen (Buffalo), and Lamar Jackson (Baltimore) all had impressive rookie seasons that has fans eager to see how they all respond in their sophomore seasons. The Rams and Chargers brought playoff football back to Los Angeles in a big way, with the Rams reaching the Super Bowl thanks to an incredibly high powered offense. That high powered offense didn’t show up in the Super Bowl though, as they were crippled by the Patriots defense in a 13-3 defensive slug fest.

That brings us to the 2019 season and seeing who progresses and regresses, which I will try to predict. So here goes… * indicated wild card team
