    I see 10-6 as being very realistic. I think they could go 3-3 before the bye, as the game at Baltimore and home vs. LAR and SEA could be very tricky. I am also not counting out the Jets.

    After the bye though, I think it could be very possible for them to win all but 2 games. I don't see us beating NE yet, and we never win at Pittsburgh, but the rest are very winnable.

    10-6 seems realistically optimistic

    Just my opinion but I see a lot of these games being toss-ups or close wins. 12-4, while starting off 1-2 lol. Am I crazy? lol

    Some of these teams are hard to predict.

    The Dolphins are an inconsistent team---they can be tough.
    The 49ers are unpredictable with Jimmy G back.
    Cardinals? What if they get Murray and David Johnson returns to form?
    Broncos and Flacco. They still have a very good defense.
    Bengals. Dalton and those weapons?
    Baltimore? Who knows.
    Jets. Darnold and Le'veon.

    I am being generous but I do expect with the team we see on paper. 10 WINS.

    Not good @ guessing how many wins they'll get this year. I just hope they win more games than last year.

    But how did the Browns end up playing in Denver back to back years?

    I think Miami is the worst team in the NFL this year. Fitzpatrick might have some juice left, but now they are switching from an offensive-minded HC to a defensive-minded one, and their offensive coaching staff is not good. They're still unsettled at RB, and their OL sucks.

    49ers, we'll see. They weren't even much better with him healthy last year than when they had Beathard and Mullens in there.

    Cardinals, that's a W. They have so many holes on that roster.

    Broncos at Mile High isn't a given, but Flacco is so terrible.

    Bengals are in rebuild mode. We were significantly better than them last year and we should only lengthen that divide this year.

    I think we lose early at Baltimore but get them the 2nd time around in Cleveland.

    I like the Jets to be sneaky good this year. Solid weapons and a pretty decent OL, and I think Darnold is going to continue to improve. That game is going to be very tough.

    I was wondering the same thing. It has something to do with how each team finished in their division in 2018, while us playing them in 2018 just went along with us having the AFCW on the slate.

    Thanks for the info. I was lucky enough to go to last years game @ Mile Higher Stadium. My bro-n-law's a Broncos season ticket holder. Shortly after the schedule was announced last night he called & said I gotta ticket to that game.

    :yes:

    Not at all.....other than at NE no reason to think they cannot have a good shot to win any of these games. Crazy they'd be favored in all other other than at Steelers and maybe Ravens? Other tough out of division games (besides NE) are at home.

    First half looks a lot tougher. come out of that 5-3 (or better) and a playoff bye not out of the question

    exactly...reason NE plays Steelers nearly every year. They usually both win division (this year because we play AFC East)

    Jets and 49ers are the teams that really only worry me out of those teams. That's why I predict 12 wins. We will see though. I am honestly just hoping they make the playoffs.

    Maybe I'm crazy, but I think that NE game has the makings of an upset. Us coming off the bye with a few games under out belt to gel, while NE had some pretty major personnel losses. I don't see them being unbeatable by any means.

    Health is of course an absolute paramount, but I think it's a very strong likelihood we do make the playoffs. I'm not a fan of Cincinnati this year, and I think Baltimore's defensive losses are going to be bigger than people realize. I also have no faith that Lamar Jackson is going to be able to lead a team for 16 games and win more than half of them, if that.

    Week 1-8 is still a very tough stretch to start the season.

    Titans
    @Jets
    Rams
    @Ravens
    @Niners
    seahawks

    I mean just think about the games last year. The Browns were competitive in every game other than the Chargers, Steelers (1 game) and Chiefs games and the Browns are A LOT better. Can't say most of those teams improved. Actually you could argue most of those teams regressed. Only teams that improved were the Jets, 49ers and possibly the Cards (not much so far).

    No doubt....I don't think they go into any game without a legit chance to win.
