The NFL starts up in less than a week and what better way to get ready for the season than by giving you a preview of what could possibly, maybe, concievably, in a perfect world happen?
First up, the AFC East featuring the New England Patriots…and those other teams.
New England Patriots
|11-5||The defending Super Champs don’t look to be as good on paper this season.
