NFL in April, 2016

In the last month, we had the announcement of the 2016 NFL schedule. Now that we know who will play whom and when, we can start predicting wins and losses.

I keep my predictions over at Some Fun Site. View results of previous football seasons.

2015 Summary

Last year, I predicted that

  • Cleveland Browns = 4-12
  • Miami Dolphins = 6-10
  • St. Louis Rams = 9-7

How they actually did was

  • Cleveland Browns = 3-13
  • Miami Dolphins = 6-10
  • St. Louis Rams = 7-9

Pretty good, if I do say so myself.

How about the methods overall?

I’m glad you asked, although you may be regretting it soon.

It was a breakout year for DPE in predicting outcomes, but I think that might be an anomaly.

2016

Now that the 2016 schedule is out, I have setup the 2016 NFL predictions. Here is my summary of the results:

2016 Summary

Consensus (3 or more methods in agreement):

  • Cleveland Browns = 3-13
  • Jacksonville Jaguars = 7-9

Small turnout this year. We’ll see how those do next year.

I know the Rams moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles this year, but all my scripts are setup with STL so I left it that way.

Of course, if any major player gets injured, that team’s projected results are void.

Also, if any roster has changed from last year, that team’s projected results are void. Same thing with new coaches.

Then he presented the second ram, the ram of ordination, and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram.
