We’re now finished with all of our team previews just in time for the first Sunday of the season. You can find our NFC recap here. Check out our projected standings for the AFC.
We have five of the six playoff teams from last year returning. The last two teams out are the AFC West second and third place finishers, the Chiefs and Chargers. The new team in is the Miami Dolphins who we have tying the Patriots for first place in the AFC East.
The one team to drop out of the playoffs is the Bengals, who we have winning only six games this year. We’re picking a new winner in their division, with the Ravens finishing first in the AFC North and the Steelers getting a wild card spot.
The AFC South is still the worst division in the AFC and the Colts will easily repeat. The Broncos will retain their AFC West title and tie the Colts for the best record in the AFC.
