Sportmentary 2014 AFC Predictions

ANDREW LUCK Hand Signed 16 x 20 "Precision" Photograph PANINI LE 12As I prepare for the Labor Day weekend, I do so knowing that the start of the NFL season is less than a week away. With that in mind and the fact that my excitement is building up for the start of football, it’s time for the annual Sportmentary NFL predictions for 2014.

This year I'm doing things a little differently. Instead of releasing the full NFL predictions (AFC & NFC), the predictions will be released in two installments.

I will start with the AFC in this installment and you can look for the NFC predictions by the end of the long weekend. The NFC predictions will include the Super Bowl champion pick.

How did I do with my 2013 predictions? I predicted that the Denver Broncos would defeat the Seattle Seahawks. We all know how that turned out.

Vote for who you think will win the AFC at the Bottom of this page.

Now for the picks.

AFC East – Still a weak division.
1. New England Patriots (12-4) - The Patriots will have an improved defense and will be a very tough team to beat in 2014. They will bolt out the blocks from the start of the season and will not look back. It will be tough for the other AFC teams to keep up with them and they won’t.

2. Miami Dolphins (7-9) - The only reason they will finish second in the division is because the other two teams are putrid.

3. New York Jets (6-10) - The team will continue to disappoint there fans. Just as the fan base starts to believe in this team and Geno Smith after a game one victory against the Raiders they will quickly come back to earth and the reality that this team stinks.

4. Buffalo Bills (2-14) - This team is spiraling out of control and they will be an embarrassment on the field this season. The only bright spot for Bills fans is that the team will secure new ownership that will keep the team in the Buffalo area.

AFC North - Role Reversal.
1. Baltimore Ravens (11-5) - The Ravens will narrowly win the division. The Ravens will be a contender in the AFC.

2. Cincinnati Bengals (10-6) - The Bengals will be the second best team in the North and will earn one of the coveted Wild Card births. The tem will do what they do best and bow out of the first round of the playoffs after another putrid performance by their franchise quarterback.

3. Pittsburgh Steelers (8-8) - The Steelers will still be in rebuilding mode this season.

4. Cleveland Browns (5-11) - Fans looking for this team to make strides this season will be disappointed. The Browns will turn to Johnny late in the season but by that time the Brows would have already conceded another season.

AFC South – This is arguably the worst division in the NFL
1. Indianapolis Colts (13-3) - Indy has been improving every season since Luck joined the team. This year will see the team improve even more. Will they win the AFC? You will have to keep reading to find out.

2. Tennessee Titans (7-9) - The only reason for this team finishing second in the AFC South is due to the other teams being terrible.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars (5-11) - One of the only bright spots for this team this season is that they play in a division with Houston.

4. Houston Texans (4-12) - The Texans will see a 100% increase in their wins total. Yikes! This team has a long way to go.

AFC West - 2014 will be a repeat of 2013.
1. Denver Broncos (12-4) - The Broncos will be head of the class in this division again in 2013.

2. Kansas City Chiefs (10-6) - KC won't have as explosive a year as last season but they will be in the mix.

3. San Diego Chargers  (8-8)- San Diego will be neither here nor there in 2014.

4. Oakland Raiders (6-10) - 2014 will be more of the same for the silver and black but they will see their wins total increase by 2.

AFC wild card teams: Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs.
AFC Champions - New England over Indianapolis.

Those are my AFC picks for 2014. Let us know what you think. We should have the NFC picks by the end of the weekend.
