NFL Picks & NFL Prediction Power Rankings
#1 Indianapolis Colts
Peyton Manning and company may still be licking their wounds after letting the New Orleans Saints get the best of them in the Super Bowl last season, but the Indianapolis Colts plan to come back next season with the same kind of intensity and dominance that should lead to another Super Bowl run.
Much like last season, the Colts should be favored in NFL picks on a weekly basis as they will almost certainly 10+ games once again.
#2 San Diego Chargers
Heading into the playoffs last season, the San Diego Chargers were the hottest team in the NFL after winning 11 straight games, but their hot streak ended when the underdog New York Jets beat them in the playoffs and sent Philip Rivers and company home packing.
This season the Chargers could be even better as they will continue to be one of the best all around teams in the league, but they will have a major addition in the backfield with rookie running back Ryan Matthews.
#3 Minnesota Vikings
As always, the waiting game has started once again as the Minnesota Vikings and the rest of the NFL wait to see whether or not their 11-time Pro Bowler will come back for one more season.
If Favre does come back, and many people believe he will, the Vikings will be the best team in the NFC in my opinion and a solid bet to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl in February.
#4 Dallas Cowboys
No other team in the league will have more motivation to reach the Super Bowl in this upcoming season than the Dallas Cowboys who will have a chance to play in the Super Bowl on their home field at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
With the addition of rookie wideout Dez Bryant alongside some of the best offensive players in the league, the Cowboys could be a serious force to be reckoned with in the NFL next season.
#5 New Orleans Saints
Surprisingly enough, the defending Super Bowl champs will start their title defense next season as the third best team in the NFC Conference behind the Vikings and the Cowboys, but I believe they will prove their doubters wrong once again as they will have the same team relatively intact and ready to defend their title.
