NFL free agents have been signed, new players have been drafted, and each teams’ schedule has been released. With just three months remaining before the regular season begins, we break down each division and predict each division winner for the 2018 NFL season.
The Eagles went from worst-to-first in their division, as did the Jacksonville Jaguars, who would have faced the Eagles in Super Bowl LII if it weren’t for a late comeback by the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.
Even with the Jaguars’ unexpected deep playoff run, the biggest divisional shakeups were in the NFC, where the top spot in each division changed hands in 2017. Which divisions will be turned upside down in 2018? Will any teams go from worst-to-first — or first-to-worst, like the Houston Texans did last season?
Let’s take a look at each of the NFL’s eight divisions — and predict which team will end up on top — beginning with the AFC East.
