In the inaugural Phil Steele’s Pro Football Preview, I made a forecast for each division and I am very pleased to announce that I correctly forecasted 7 of the 8! Mine was also the ONLY major magazine to pick the eventual Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints to win the NFC South. We followed that performance up 8 of the last 9 years (no projections made last year) by picking 35 of 64 division winners (55%).
***Dont forget that the 2018 Pro Football Preview is available right now to order from the online store. We will be shipping the Pro Magazine out this week. You can also get the digital version of the Pro Magazine. Phil Steele’s Digital Magazine Page.
The NFL is certainly a league of parity. In fact, going back to 1998, only 31% of the time had a team repeated as a division winner through 2013.
