The Buccaneers will come so close to a winning record for the second straight year, but come up just a game short. Again.
Freeman will have a solid season statistically, but i feel like this is his last year with the franchise.
New Orleans Saints: 10-6 (6-2 home, 4-4 away)
Drew Brees and company will find their form once more.
After a disappointing 2012 campaign, the Saints make the playoffs much to the pleasure of fans despite their below average defence. Brees is my early pick for season MVP.
Atlanta Falcons: 11-5 (6-2 home, 5-3 away)
Same old Falcons.
They will dominate all the way through the regular season, probably exceeding my projected 11 wins, but it's what happens in the play offs that really matters. There is only so long that their superbowl window can stay open.
Carolina Panthers: 8-8 (4-4 home, 4-4 away)
The panthers find their 2011 groove this season.
Although they aren't quite playoff ready, the Panthers will look a lot better then last season. Carolina will try to carry their late season form last year into 2013. As for Cam Newton, I can see him playing a lot better. But In regards to his maturity, who knows what we could get from him.
