The 2022 NFL season opens on September Eight with a matchup that just about was final 12 months’s Tremendous Bowl. The NFL champion Los Angeles Rams shall be internet hosting the Buffalo Payments in what needs to be a basic showdown. The NFL opener is the beginning of what needs to be a really thrilling season with many new faces and gamers in different places.
Previously, earlier than a season started, I made it a follow to undergo the whole NFL schedule and try to select the winners from each sport week-by-week after which tally up the victories to get an concept of what the ultimate standings may appear like and which groups get to the playoffs when the season concludes.
I’ve finished simply that with this season’s schedule and a number of the outcomes may shock followers whereas others is likely to be anticipated. There isn’t any science to this technique of mine, simply attempting to select winners. In fact, accidents will play a significant half in how properly groups carry out so it’s a issue that may be accounted for. Moreover, how sure models pan out will even decide some outcomes. For instance, in Pittsburgh, it’s believed the offensive line of the Steelers won’t be superb due to this fact, their operating sport and cross blocking could possibly be affected by the play of the boys up entrance.
This text received’t embrace playoff predictions simply how I figured the ultimate standings to be. As per my outcomes, it seems that the New York Jets and Houston Texans would be the worst groups within the league as I see the Inexperienced and White ending with simply three wins and the Texans solely two.

I’ve been saying to anybody that wishes to hear, don’t sleep on the Steelers. If the o-line holds up, Trubisky may have an amazing season. Rookie George Pickens goes to wow followers, and Najee Harris will enhance on his rookie season of 2021. However what excites me extra is the addition of Myles Jack and excellent linebackers formally with Jacksonville who will crew with T.J. Watt in what needs to be a implausible due together with the 9 different defenders that may take the sphere with these guys.
I’ve received the Steelers profitable 11 video games and ending tied with the defending AFC champion Bengals for second place. As for who does head to the playoffs, based mostly on my findings, the AFC division winners would be the Payments, Chiefs, Ravens, and Colts. All however one of many following 4 groups shall be a wild card entry: Chargers, Raiders, Bengals, and the Steelers. The odd crew out will rely upon head-to-head outcomes and convention data.
On the opposite facet with the NFC, taking a division championship shall be Philadelphia, the L.A. Rams, Inexperienced Bay, and Tampa. Wild card groups? Dallas, Minnesota, and Arizona. Right here’s how I see the whole league shaping up:
