Predicting The Entire NFL Season: Week 9 (Eagles at Texans)

Before we get started on the latest edition of our way-too-early NFL predictions, I feel it’s important to address last week’s post. Ladies, gentlemen, let’s be civil, OK? This is purely for entertainment purposes. My opinions will in no way, shape or form influence the outcomes of actual games played during the actual season. OK?

Now that we have that out of the way, here’s a look at the projected NFL standings through Week 8.

A lot of the division races are starting to take shape. New England and Buffalo; Baltimore and Cincinnati; New York Giants and Philadelphia; and Seattle and Arizona look to be in battles. Other divisions are muddy messes.

Atlanta, Buffalo, Chicago, Detroit, Green Bay and Tennessee have byes this week. The rest of the NFL will try to separate themselves.

Saints @ Panthers: Big Thursday Night matchup here. The Panthers are coming off a huge win over Seattle and will ride that emotion to a bigger win here. Carolina 26, New Orleans 24

Buccaneers @ Browns: The good people of Cleveland need good things to happen every once in a while, right? Better days are ahead, and this game will be a glimpse of that. Cleveland 40, Tampa Bay 23

Cardinals @ Cowboys: Coming off a tough loss, Arizona will get a tough win on the road. One wonders if by this point in the season Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will be both healthy and starting. Arizona 28, Dallas 20

Jets @ Chiefs: A week ago, the Jets won a game they should have lost. The Chiefs lost a game they should have won. The universe has a way of correcting itself. Kansas City 33, New York Jets 21

Jaguars @ Bengals: The Bengals have a great chance to start piling up some wins here. Cincinnati 43, Jacksonville 13

Chargers @ Dolphins: It’s always tough to go across the country, and when two evenly-matched teams meet up, go with home field. Miami 25, San Diego 20

Redskins @ Vikings: Two bad teams? Again, go with home field. Minnesota 27, Washington 21

Rams @ 49ers: How good is the NFC West? These are the teams at the bottom of that division right now. Scary. San Francisco 36, St. Louis 28

Broncos @ Patriots: Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Fun stuff, sure, but really, this Denver schedule is brutal. Lucky for them, it gets slightly better after this week, but for now, it’s going to be tough. New England 29, Denver 24

Raiders @ Seahawks: Oakland goes on the road a week after Seattle’s first loss. Yikes. Seattle 37, Oakland 7

Ravens @ Steelers: Baltimore gets back on a roll. Baltimore 26, Pittsburgh 16

Colts @ Giants: A good Monday Night Football game here. I think the Giants need this game more, and they’re at home, and that’s a recipe for victory. New York Giants 24, Indianapolis 17

Eagles @ Texans: Bye week, at Arizona, at Houston. A long time away from home for Philadelphia Eagles and head coach Chip Kelly. This is a time in the season where Houston is starting to come back to earth and the Eagles should be fairly fresh with the recent bye. Philadelphia 30, Houston 20
