    Av's Preseason Picks, Revisited

    So... let's see how I'm doing at the halfway point of the season...

    AFC East
    New England Patriots 11-5

    Miami Dolphins 7-9
    New York Jets 7-9
    Buffalo Bills 4-12


    Pretty much on target there. The Patriots are in first. The Dolphins and Jets are hovering around .500. The Bills are at the bottom of the division.

    AFC North
    Pittsburgh Steelers 11-5
    Baltimore Ravens 8-8
    Cleveland Browns 8-8
    Cincinnati Bengals 6-10


    Well, I definitely did not see the Browns demise or the Bengals rise coming. Steelers and Ravens are performing as expected.

    AFC South
    Indianapolis Colts 10-6
    Houston Texans 10-6
    Tennessee Titans 9-7
    Jacksonville Jaguars 5-11


    I obviously missed the boat on the Titans, but who didn't? My underdog Super Bowl pick of the Texans is still a possibility.

    AFC West
    San Diego Chargers 12-4
    Denver Broncos 8-8
    Kansas City Chiefs 4-12
    Oakland Raiders 4-12


    The Chargers have underperformed, and the Broncos are better than expected. I would not be surprised, though, if my order proves accurate in the end.

    NFC East
    Philadelphia Eagles 12-4
    New York Giants 11-5
    Dallas Cowboys 9-7
    Washington Redskins 6-10


    Looking pretty good, though I don't know that the Redskins will win six games in the end.

    NFC North
    Green Bay Packers 10-6
    Chicago Bears 9-7
    Minnesota Vikings 8-8
    Detroit Lions 3-13

    Definitely undervalued the Vikings here. Otherwise pretty close.

    NFC South
    New Orleans Saints 11-5
    Atlanta Falcons 10-6
    Carolina Panthers 7-9
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers 6-10


    Got the order right, but gave too many wins to Tampa, and too few to the Saints.


    NFC West
    Arizona Cardinals 10-6
    St. Louis Rams 8-8
    San Francisco Niners 7-9
    Seattle Seahawks 5-11


    No, I don't see the Rams going 7-1 in the second half of the season. Otherwise, though, my picks for the division are on target.

    I still like my Eagles vs. Texans pick. The Eagles have had a lot of injuries, but they seem to be coming together now. If they can avoid big injuries going into the playoffs, they remain my favorite. The Saints have risen to a point where they must be considered too, though I wonder if their style of play will translate to playoff victories. The Vikings have to be viewed as a contender, but I won't be shocked if Favre wears down towards the end of the season.

    In the AFC, the Colts have emerged as the top team. Still, they are not without their flaws. I like my Texans pick, as they could match the Colts in a shootout if it comes to that. The Patriots are in the mix, but I think they are beatable. I'm not buying into the Broncos success at this point. I suspect they will have a rough second half of the season.

    Stay tuned!

    Your picks look even better in week 16, as the Titans and Chargers rallied.
