Each year around this time, I download the entire NFL schedule and then predict the winners week-by-week. I tally up the results and come up with division winners and wild card teams and then project who I think will win this season’s Super Bowl.
The results are in and some may immediately call me biased because I have my Pittsburgh Steelers winning their seventh Lombardi Trophy. Scoff at that if you will, but even without Antonio Brown on the field, this Steelers team in my estimation is going to actually be a BETTER team than what was in 2018.
The crop of new rookies will have an impact, JuJu Smith-Schuster will step to the plate in replacing A.B.; James Conner will return with something to prove; Devin Bush is going to wow fans; and quite simply, the chemistry is way better. There will be no distractions and the team already seems focused.
Here’s how I see it playing out:
One other noteworthy item of the day, it’s in Major League Baseball where yes, the Pirates lost again but more interesting is the fact that the New York Yankees continue to rip the cover off the ball. Just in Camden Yards in Baltimore alone, the men in pinstripes have stroked 32 home runs this season, the most by any one team in one park as a visiting team in history. The old record was 29 by the Milwaukee Braves who slammed 29 dingers at Crosley Field in Cincinnati way back in 1957.
