Better late than never Madden heads! We enter the 2013 season with a few new faces and a new crop of rookies looking to repeate the success found by Andrew Luck, RG3, Bernard Pierce, Tannehill and Josh Norman to name a few! AFC EAST: winner BUFFALO BILLS 9-7 Miami Dolphins stryder24New England Patriots MS8403Buffalo Bills KoG CHEESEDIPNew York Jets Capt Crunch Last year Buffalo quietly ran away with the division. Brady, Flacco, Fitzpatrick, Sanchez/Tebow/Marshall. The Jets drafted last years highly publicized Ken Marshall adding him to the drama in NY. Someone's gotta go out of this trio, or maybe Tebow can finally make the move to TE or full time special teams player. The Patriots made a few key moves in free agency this year, bringing in the big power back L. Blount from Tampa. This team is high powered and will put up points with anyone. Can the Jets aging D keep up? Can the Fins young D weather the storm? Buffalo Bills surely can. This race should be a lot tighter this year. Look for Buffalo to still win the division but with much resistance from The Fins and the Pats. The Jets will hover slightly above .500. This division will spend most of the year beating one another up, allowing only one victor into the playoffs due to win-loss column! AFC WEST: winner OAKLAND RAIDERS 13-3 Kansas City Chiefs dj illmatic 23Oakland Raiders RaidernationDenver Broncos CPUSan Deigo Chargers CPU The toughest division in football last year got a little easier with coach Snozberriez8198 / Broncos accepting the bid to rebuild the Cardinals. May have been a good move because the Raiders had the Broncos' number last year kicking them around in 3 games. The Chiefs enter the year with new life at QB as Matt Cassel experiment has finally been canclled! Insert Mark Mallett, the rookie QB with a big arm and fleet feet! Mallett is a pre-season favorite for rookie of the year honors! The Raiders however are very familiar with the Chiefs, and both owners will beat up on the computer in 4 games, making it highly probable that both the Chiefs & Raiders make it in to the post season. The Raiders D is vastly improved with the free agent addition of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, the' number one sought after corner back in last years free agent bidding. We'll see what the Raiders do at the QB position with Carson Palmer set to be a free agent at years end. Will it be Terrel Pryor or rookie Drew Aldridge getting the snaps and dev points? AFC NORTH: winner PITTSBURGH STEELERS 12-4 Baltimore Ravens Qui3tStormCleveland Browns recchem2000Cincinnati Bengals iTsIsiahPittsburgh Steelers JrRawlins Arguably now the toughest conference in football. In come the Superbowl Champions B'More Ravens, Ray Rice and Ryan Tannehill. New challenges face the Ravens with a revamped offensive line, the loss of Hall of Fame veterans such as Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Matt Birk, will the Ravens be able to repeate? Chances are no, the Ravens have a brutal schedule and are already hit with injuries. The Browns under new coach recchem2000 have top draft pick WR Clifton Faulk to throw the pigskin around to. With last years top rookie RB still carrying the rock in Trent Richardson. Brandon Weeden kept his job even though the new coach was looking hard at QB Rob Bell. The Bengals enter the black and blue division with a whole other game plan that what the Bengals are geared for. However Cinci did get one gem in FA with the signing of Reggie Bush. He will add a dynamic addition in the pass heavy game plan for the Bengals. Only problem is, he's in the AFC North, black and blue... How will the finesse approach work? We'll see but that cards are stacked. The Steelers are favored to win because of the solid play on both sides of the ball by coach JrRawlins. Big Ben has probably the meanest core of receivers in the game. And solid vets playing on D which will keep them in every game! AFC SOUTH: winner INDIANAPOLIS COLTS 10-6Houston Texans DaveIV82Indianapolis Colts Jmustang1968Jacksonville Jaguars Gngsta4LypheTennessee Titans Troy J. Maybe the second toughest division in football. The young Colts are geared up to make another post season run behind the arm of Andrew Luck and his array of playmakers at the skilled positions. The Texans addressed their need at QB with star Ryan McNeilly yet another dual threat athletic option. Each team in the south had the same mind set, load up on receivers! The Jaguars and Colts set aside their differences and the fact they play each other twice a year to work business, but that fell through and the Jags reached early with the drafting of Ross Lake. The Colts answered back by drafting yet another big receiver in Jaquante Wright. Not to be out done in the wide out madness the Texans paired Keyshawn Bouie with Andre Johnson. Hope you have some D Backs Troy J. Look for Ross Lake to be up there in the final rookie of the year voting along with Dezrick Johnson the RB. We all know the Jags do numbers, lets see if these numbers translate to a playoff birth rather than individual accolades.
