Barring Injuries: My 2016 NFL Prediction

It’s been 30 football-less Sundays since my Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50, and it’s finally that time of year again. Football is back – and it’s time to make my predictions. Annually, I pick every single game of the season from Week 1 to the Super Bowl. Last year, I was pretty close: I predicted Denver over Seattle in a Super Bowl XVIII rematch.

This year, just like always, my prediction will come true barring injuries*.

*Yes, every NFL season has injuries. Therefore, I can’t be wrong. Enjoy…

SPOILER ALERT: The Bengals will finally win a playoff game!
