NFL 2017 Player Predictions and Who Will Win Super Bowl 2018

While it’s way too early to determine the winner of the Super Bowl, bettors and prolific handicappers focus more player predictions for the starting season in September 2017 for the Super Bowl race of 2018. Here is what major sports sites predictions are:

Player Predictions

Alshon Jeffery
Prediction: Signs with the Chicago Bears.

Size, speed with great awareness on the ball and one of the top-tier receivers. While free on the market it seems Jeffery might make a return for Chicago Bears according to a NFL.com Ian Reports tweet about a player meeting with the team directives. If you want to bet against this you hold your standing based on Jeffery’s remarks about wishing to play on a Super Ball contender this season, and that is not the case of the Bears who find themselves in the middle of a roster overhaul.

DeSean Jackson
Prediction: Signs with Tampa Bay.

A pro receiver and not playing anymore for the Washington Redskins. Where will he go? There are 3 strong candidates: 49ers, Rams, Buccaneers. Pick given by NFL.com’s Ian Report on twitter. 

Adrian Peterson
Prediction: Joins New England Patriot to chase Super Bowl 2018.

Peterson is a monster athlete with a future Hall of Fame as a running back, only problem is he will soon turn 32 and questions about durability and rustiness are on the air since he played very little this last season.

Peterson has claimed interest for playing with Raiders and Seahawks according to a Bleacher Report tweet.

But Bleacher Report and the Boston Herald bet on Adrian getting an offer from the New England Patriots as the best running back in history. The best team with the best running back in history, makes sense. The Super Bowl 2018 could be enough to entice Peterson.

Tony Romo
Prediction: Goes to Arizona, Denver or Kansas City.

The most obvious team to take him would be Houston, but Arizona, Denver and Kansas City are better suitors according to Bleacher Report.

Kirk Cousins
Prediction: Signs with Washington Redskins.

The Washington Redskins need him, but he doesn´t need them with Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson leaving. So you might want to skip this tip from Bleacher Report that suggests the player has better options sitting out the season.

Other NFL Predictions

Dallas Cowboys
Prediction: The Cowboys won´t make the playoffs.

Their poor performing deals and they will lose the NFC title race according to Bleacher Report. Dak Prescott will fade thanks to his injury and lowers the overall team performance. They just lacks what is needed to survive for the next season.

Teams not Making it to the Playoffs
Prediction: the Dolphins, Raiders, Giants, Lions and Falcons will not be in the playoffs.

All of the mentioned teams are unstable in performance, they seem to be able to make only to fall once more. The Giants and Lions are amongst the most unpredictable team year after year. The Raiders are an average team, and that’s not enough. The Falcons seem to suffer from the Super Bowl curse, which says the losing team has trouble getting back to playoffs.  But more than that is the fact the team has trouble building a backbone.

Teams Making it to the Playoffs
Prediction: Ravens, Chargers, Redskins, Eagles and Bucs.

The Bucs have been raising their stats continually and Baltimore Ravens are on their good year.  The Chargers are on the up rise with Phillip Rivers.

Going with the bet that neither Redskins, Raiders nor Giants win the NFC East, that leaves Washington and Philadelphia for the bid.

Super Bowl 2018 Winner Prediction
Prediction: New England Patriots win the Super Bowl 2018.

The only possible early bet to pick the 2018 Super Bowl winner would be for the New England Patriots once more, especially if they take into key players this season as bettors predict. If you want to see more details, William Hill offers the best NFL betting odds for all future matches in different sports events like Super Bowl. The Patriots is the most solid, competitive and experienced for the task. They are unmatchable for the long term goal.

Ravens Bring Back DT Brandon Williams With Mega Deal Worth $54 Million

The Ravens reached an agreement in principle with defensive tackle Brandon Williams on a five-year, $54 million deal with $27.5 million in guarantees on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

While they didn’t use the franchise tag on him, they were intent on keeping the run-stopper around.

Losing big-ticket free agents Rick Wagner (Lions) and Kyle Juszczyk (49ers) helped create some flexibility, but Williams was already viewed as a building block.

Former Ravens President David Modell Passes Away From Lung Cancer at 56

Former Ravens President David Modell passed away on Friday at the age of 56 after battling lung cancer the past few years.

Modell is the adopted son of former Browns owner Art Modell.

David was a former President of the Ravens, and is survived by his wife, Michel, three sons, Arthur Modell, David Modell Jr. and Bertram “Bertie” Modell; three daughters, Breslin Modell, Collier Modell and Aoife “Fee” Modell; and a brother, John Modell.

Modell was a fixture with the Browns, going from being a part of the grounds crew when he was 14 years old, to eventually by his father’s side and helping the Browns move to Baltimore after the 1995 season.

Art passed away in 2012 before the start of the season, while his mother, Patricia Modell, died in 2011.

Ravens Announce Coaching Staff to Stay Intact for 2017

marty-mornhinweg

Despite a season the fell short of a playoff spot for the second straight season, the Ravens will NOT be making changes to their coaching staff despite rumblings that some changes may be coming.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network tweeted out the following about the decision by coach John Harbaugh to stay put at the current coaching positions for the Ravens.

It did appear that the Ravens were going to go in another direction with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, but based on Harbaugh’s announcement today, that won’t be the case.

Ravens LB Terrell Suggs Declares He’ll Be Back for a 15th Season in 2017

Terrell Suggs

It was a bitter and hard to watch defeat for the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday in Pittsburgh, as the team blew a 10-point fourth quarter lead in losing to the Steelers 31-27, ending the dreams of the postseason and a possible division title.

With the season now all but over minus one game against the Bengals Sunday in Cincinnati that will mean nothing, questions are going to start popping up more and more about veteran players and their future.

One player who stated all along that 2016 would be his last season is that of wide out Steve Smith Sr., who returned to the team after he was suffered a torn ACL last season, and told everyone he wanted to retire on his terms.

Another player who is getting long in the tooth is that of linebacker Terrell Suggs, who is set to wrap up his 14th NFL season Sunday in the final against the Bengals.

He’s the leader of the defense ever since Ray Lewis stepped away, and despite what some are thinking, Suggs says he will be back in 2017 for another run at a Super Bowl.

“I don’t know what you heard. … I was always planning to come back and doing this another year,” he said.

What if the Ravens Logo Was Made in the Likeness of President Elect Donald Trump?

Donald Trump

Like it or not, next month Donald Trump will be the new President of the United States, and one thing that can’t be denied is it’s going to be an interesting four years in our country.

There’s been plenty of fun poked at the President elect, and one site – Uproxx, has taken it upon themselves to design every NFL logo in the make of our President elect.

Check out what they think the logo of the Ravens will look like made in the likeness of Trump!

Big Day for Flacco as Ravens Pound Dolphins 38-6 to Improve to 7-5

Miami Dolphins v Baltimore Ravens

John Harbaugh had been waiting the entire season for the Baltimore Ravens to put it all together in one memorable, outstanding performance.

His patience was rewarded Sunday.

The Ravens combined a record-setting passing day by Joe Flacco with a rugged defensive effort in a 38-6 rout of the Miami Dolphins.

“It was just a heck of a team victory,” Harbaugh said. “It’s something that’s been in our minds, our vision of how we played today as a team. It’s what we’re working for, and it’s nice to see it happen.”

Flacco threw for 381 yards and four touchdowns, and the Ravens (7-5) made it apparent early that Miami’s six-game winning streak would not make it to seven.
