This is a guest post on the upcoming NFL season by Chase, our 12 year old football statistician and 2005 Fantasy Football Champion.
Last year gave us one of the wackiest football seasons ever. Who would have thought the Patriots would go undefeated in the regular season, that the Giants would win the Super Bowl over the undefeated Patriots, or that Brett Favre would come out of retirement and become a New York Jet.
I think this will be another exciting season for the NFL. Here are 3 games I recommend watching this season.
- #3 The Indianapolis Colts at the San Diego Chargers, week 12. The Colts always have trouble handling the Chargers. The Chargers seem to be bad luck for the Colts.
- #2 The New York Jets vs the New England Patriots, week 2 & 11. When these 2 teams play it’s going to be an intense matchup. These 2 teams are going to become even bigger rivals. Favre and Brady. You can’t miss it!
- #1 The New England Patriots at the San Diego Chargers, week 6. Lots of people think this is the Charger’s year, and I mean, who wouldn’t? Last year they had a great season and they made some pretty good draft picks. Fullback Jacob Hester is a rookie, but I think he will make a big impact on the team. If you watched LSU last season you should know what he is capable of doing.
I have 2 breakout teams this season…the New Orleans Saints and the Oakland Raiders.
The Raiders have a lot of young players like Darren McFadden and JaMarcus Russell. I’m not saying they will win the Super Bowl or anything like that, just that they will do a lot better than last year now that Russell is more familiar with everything.
I think the Saints will do as well as they did in 2006. They have a few more playmakers on the team. I don’t know what happened last year, but I think they will do better this season.
A player to watch is Adrian Peterson. He had an outstanding rookie season and who knows what he could do in the future.
There is a lot to watch for this season, and I think it will be a tough and competitive season for every team. Here’s how I think the playoffs will end up:
