In the AFC East, I predict New York Jets 11-5, New England Patriots 10-6, Miami Dolphins 9-7 and Buffalo Bills 8-8.

Who will win the AFC? The Baltimore Ravens. They will battle NFC champs Green Bay Packers in the Super Bowl. The league MVP will be Aaron Rodgers.

The Packers will win the Super Bowl. Jermichael Finley will be named MVP for the game.

Here are a few more predictions for football season:

Andrew Dyrdal will disagree with most of my picks.

Atlanta Falcons will be the team to watch as a surprising new entry into the NFL elite.

Sorry Viking fans as I did pick your team to win it all last year, but this year the pack is back baby!!!!

Scott’s picks are OK, but he really missed the boat a few times. The New York Jets are overrated and will not finish 11-5, the Bengals are much better than third in the AFC North and there is much more parity in the NFC East than Scott thinks.

My picks for the NFL season are:

In the AFC East, I predict New England Patriots 11-5, New York Jets 9-7, Miami Dolphins 8-8 and Buffalo Bills 5-11.
