So I’m skipping the daily quote and daily news today because I have been spending the majority of today finishing this:
Yes, I finished it WAY ahead of schedule! By the way, the italicized numbers next to team names in the standings represents the team’s strength of schedule, which was used as a tie-breaker. For those of you who don’t have a specific team that you’d like to track the progress of, here is the general overview:
Playoff Seedings-NFC: 1. Seattle Seahawks (13-3); 2. Minnesota Vikings (12-4); 3. Washington Redskins (11-5); 4. Atlanta Falcons (7-9); 5. Arizona Cardinals (12-4) (Wildcard 1); 6. Green Bay Packers (12-4) (Wildcard 2)
Playoff Seedings-AFC: 1. New England Patriots (12-4); 2. San Diego Chargers (11-5); 3. Houston Texans (11-5); 4. Baltimore Ravens (10-6); 5. Oakland Raiders (11-5) (Wildcard 1); 6. Jacksonville Jaguars (11-5) (Wildcard 2)
The first five picks in the 2017 NFL Draft I have projected in order, as follows: 1. Cleveland Browns (2-14); 2. San Francisco 49ers (2-14); 3. Chicago Bears (3-13); 4. Detroit Lions (3-13); 5. Philadelphia Eagles (3-13)
For projections for every team, check out the document. If you don’t see your team in the playoff picture, they may have just lost a tie-breaker (the Falcons won the NFC South in a tie-breaker over TWO other NFC South teams). Also note: These projections are subject to change based on when I get my ‘feeling’ for the playoff win projections, so the Browns could go from worst to first (though, that’s not likely) if my ‘feeling’ tells me that they will win it all this season. As evidenced from the last sentence, and as a reminder, these win projections are for the 2016 NFL Regular Season ONLY. My playoff win projections will be released at a later date.
That’s all for TheHaysWay today, make sure to leave a comment with your thoughts on my win projections (including win projections of your own), along with a much-appreciated like. Have a pleasant tomorrow.
