Are you ready for some football?

Are you ready for some football? I am.

I am a big football fan. I grew up a Green Bay Packer fan and still absolutely love my team.

I love the week before the season because all the talking heads at ESPN, CBS, NBC, and FOX are making predictions on the season. It always leads to disagreements and friendly trash talking to all of the fans across the nation.

I have so many friends who are Minnesota Viking fans and the Viking-Packer rivalry is always top notch for me. It is must see TV.

This season I will also watch the Cleveland Browns because I have always liked them because of the amazing history they have. Paul Brown, Marion Motley, Jim Brown, Ernie Davis, Brian Sipe, Clay Mathews, and Joe Thomas. I think they will win six games this season.

Here are my predictions on the upcoming season:


New England Patriots 11-5
Buffalo Bills 8-8
Miami Dolphins 7-9
New York Jets 4-12
Pittsburgh Steelers 12-4
