The landscape of the NFL got shaken up at the turn of the new league year, to say the least.
We saw two superstar wide receivers moved in blockbuster trades, and a number of noteworthy players relocated via free agency. So with the majority of teams set to look fairly different in the upcoming season, which clubs are poised to earn division crowns?
Colin Cowherd took a stab Tuesday at predicting the 2019 season records for each team across the NFL in wake of the offseason frenzy. Check out his takes in the clip below, as seen on FS1.
Cowherd predicting the Patriots to finish 11-5 seems fair. The reigning Super Bowl champions are set to take on five playoff teams from a season ago, as well as the Pittsburgh Steelers and recharged Cleveland Browns. But even with the rest of the AFC East undergoing some important changes, that record should be enough for New England to win the division for an 11th straight season.
It’s also worth noting that Cowherd believes the Philadelphia Eagles will own the best overall record next season at 12-4. At least two teams have finished with a 13-3 record or better in nine of the last 10 seasons. But with seemingly no clear-cut powerhouse in the NFL as it stands, we could be in store for more parity than we’ve seen in quite some time.
