In Depth Analysis On The 2017 NFL Schedule W-L Predictions For Every NFC Team

 

 

NFC East

Washington

Home: Cowboys, Giants, Eagles, 49ers, Cardinals, Vikings, Raiders, Broncos
Away: Cowboys, Giants, Eagles, Seahawks, Rams, Saints, Chiefs, Chargers

Analysis: I’ve got the Dallas Cowboys splitting their six NFC East divisional matchups to get three wins while beating the 49ers, Vikings and Broncos at home while bagging road wins against the Rams and Chargers to finish at either 9-7 or 10-6 in a best case scenario.

NY Giants

Home: Cowboys, Redskins, Eagles, Seahawks, Rams, Lions, Chiefs, Chargers
Away: Cowboys, Redskins, Eagles, 49ers, Cardinals, Buccaneers, Raiders, Broncos

Analysis: I like the Giants to likely g 3-3 in their six division matchups, just because the four teams that make up the NFC East are very close in talent and have a deep-seated hatred for one another. I also like the G-Men to get home win against the Rams, Lions and Chargers and road wins against the Niners and possibly the Buccaneers, though that’s certainly not a given. New York’s difficult schedule means they could go 7-9 or 8-8 at best in 2017.

Dallas

Home: Redskins, Giants, Eagles, Seahawks, Rams, Packers, Chiefs, Chargers
Away: Redskins, Giants, Eagles, 49ers, Cardinals, Falcons, Raiders, Broncos

Analysis: Just like their division rivals, I’m going to say that Philly goes 3-3 over their six division games. In addition to that, I like the Boys to get home wins against Rams, Packers and Chargers and road wins against Arizona and Atlanta to finish at either 8-8 or 9-7.

Philadelphia

Home: Cowboys, Giants, Redskins, 49ers, Cardinals, Bears, Raiders, Broncos
Away: Cowboys, Giants, Redskins, Seahawks, Rams, Panthers, Chiefs, Chargers

Analysis: After going 3-3 against their NFC East division rivals, I like Philly to bag home wins against the Niners and Bears and road wins against the Rams and possibly the Chargers to finish at 6-10 or maybe, 7-9 at best.

NFC North

Green Bay

Home: Bears, Lions, Vikings, Saints, Buccaneers, Seahawks, Ravens, Bengals
Away: Bears, Lions, Vikings, Falcons, Panthers, Browns, Steelers, Cowboys

Analysis: I’m expecting the Packers to go 4-2 in their six NFC North divisional matchups while racking up additional home wins against the Saints, Buccaneers, Ravens and Bengals and road wins against Atlanta, Cleveland and Dallas to finish at 11-5.

Minnesota

Home: Bears, Lions, Packers, Saints, Buccaneers, Rams, Ravens, Bengals
Away: Bears, Lions, Packers, Falcons, Panthers, Redskins, Steelers, Browns (in London)

Analysis: I like the Vikings to go 3-3 in their six division matchups while recording home wins against the Saints and Rams and road wins against the Redskins and Browns to finish at 7-9 in 2017.

Chicago

Home: Packers, Lions, Vikings, Falcons, Panthers, 49ers, Browns, Steelers
Away: Packers, Lions, Vikings, Saints, Buccaneers, Eagles, Ravens, Bengals

Analysis: The Bears are a complete mess and have a long way to go to bounce back from their 5-11 campaign in 2016. I’ve got Chicago losing home games against The Packers, Vikings, Falcons, Panthers and Steelers and road dates against all three of their NFC North division rivals in addition to the Buccaneers, Eagles, Ravens and Bengals to finish at 5-11 for the second straight season.

Detroit

Home: Bears, Packers, Vikings, Falcons, Panthers, Browns, Steelers, Cardinals
Away: Bears, Packers, Vikings, Saints, Buccaneers, Giants, Ravens, Bengals

Analysis: The Detroit Lions went 9-7 last season, but fell apart down the stretch when they had a really good shot to win the NFC North. Still, I like Matthew Stafford and company to get home wins over the Bears, Packers, Vikings, Falcons and Browns and road wins against the Bears, Saints and Ravens to finish at either 8-8 or 9-7 in a best case scenario.

NFC South

Atlanta

Home: Panthers, Saints, Buccaneers, Cowboys, Packers, Vikings, Bills, Dolphins
Away: Panthers, Saints, Buccaneers, Lions, Bears, Seahawks, Jets, Patriots

Analysis: While the Falcons (11-5) fell completely apart in their stunning Super Bowl 51 loss to New England, I believe that Matt Ryan and the explosive Falcons will still have a decent 2017 season. I like the Falcons to get home wins against the Panthers, Saints, Buccaneers, Vikings, Bills and Dolphins and road wins against the Lions, Bears, Jets and Patriots to finish at 10-6. Now, whether they succeed in the postseason is another matter altogether.

Carolina

Home: Falcons, Saints, Buccaneers, Eagles, Packers, Vikings, Bills, Dolphins
Away: Falcons, Saints, Buccaneers, Lions, Bears, 49ers, Jets, Patriots

Analysis: After drafting gifted running back Christian McCaffery, I think it’s quite possible that the Carolina Panthers (6-10) get back to looking like a Super Bowl title contender in 2017 after reaching upper Bowl 50 two years ago. I like Carolina to split their six regular season divisional matchups by winning all three games at home in addition to beating the Eagles, Vikings and Bills. I also like Cam Newton and company to record road wins against the Lions, Bears, 49ers and Jets to finish at 10-6.

New Orleans

Home: Panthers, Falcons, Buccaneers, Lions, Bears, Redskins, Jets, Patriots
Away: Panthers, Falcons, Buccaneers, Packers, Vikings, Rams, Bills, Dolphins (in London)

Analysis: The Saints weren’t completely awful in going 7-9 last season and I believe they could improve after adding some quality talent in free agency and the NFL Draft. I believe the Saints will go 3-3 in their six NFC South division game while adding home wins against the Lions, Bears and Jets while also recording road wins against the Rams, Bills and possibly the Dolphins when they meet in London. 10 wins may be a bit much, but I like Drew Brees and company to go 9-7 at the very least in 2017.

Tampa Bay

Home: Panthers, Saints, Falcons, Bears, Lions, Giants, Patriots, Jets
Away: Panthers, Saints, Falcons, Cardinals, Packers, Vikings, Bills, Dolphins

Analysis: The Buccaneers are improving in a hurry under Jameis Winston and could very well improve on their fantastic 9-7 campaign from a year ago in 2017. I like the Buccaneers to go 3-3 in their six division matchups while adding home wins against the Bears, Lions, Giants and Jets and road victories against the Vikings, Bills and Dolphins to finish at 10-6.

NFC West

San Francisco

Home: Seahawks, Rams, Cardinals, Cowboys, Giants, Panthers, Jaguars, Titans
Away: Seahawks, Rams, Cardinals, Bears, Eagles, Redskins, Texans, Colts

Analysis: The Niners (2-14) had a helluva’ draft by pulling one over on the foolish Bears, but they till don’t have a real starting quarterback and will need a couple of years to get back to being a respectable team, if that.

I have Frisco losing home games to the Seahawks, Cardinals, Cowboys, Giants, Panthers and Titans and road games against their three NFC West division rivals in addition to losing on the road against the Bears, Eagles, Redskins, Texans and Colts to finish at 5-11.

Seattle

Home: 49ers, Rams, Cardinals, Falcons, Eagles, Redskins, Texans, Colts
Away: 49ers, Rams, Cardinals, Cowboys, Giants, Packers, Jaguars, Titans

Analysis: The Seahawks (10-5-1) have been perennial double-digit winners since 2012 and will do so again in 2017 by recording running the table at home and recording road wins against the 49ers, Rams, Giants, Jaguars and Titans to finish 2017 with an impressive 13 victories.

L.A. Rams

Home: Seahawks, 49ers, Cardinals (in London), Saints, Redskins, Eagles, Texans, Colts
Away: Seahawks, 49ers, Cardinals, Cowboys, Giants, Vikings, Jaguars, Titans

Analysis: The Rams (4-12) will have a new head coach in 2017, but they’ve got an uphill battle back to respectability in 2017. I’ve got L.A. winning at home against the 49ers and on the road against the Jaguars to finish 2017 at 2-14 or 3-13 at best.

Arizona

Home: Seahawks, Rams, 49ers, Cowboys, Giants, Buccaneers, Jaguars, Titans
Away: Seahawks, Rams (in London), 49ers, Lions, Eagles, Redskins, Texans, Colts

Analysis: I think it’s more than possible that Arizona (7-8-1) will get back to being a legitimate playoff contender in 2017. I like the Cardinal to record home wins over all three of their NFC West division rivals in addition to beating the Giants, Buccaneers, and Jaguars. I also like Carson Palmer and company to bag road wins against the Rams (in London), 49ers, Eagles, Redskins and Colts to finish the 2017 season with 11 wins.
