2020 June Faux/Computer Simulated NFL Season (AFC 1st-Round Playoff)
Every year for the past several years, myself and NFL Mock Draft expert (Huddle.com verified) Xavier Cromartie run an early summer computer simulation of the upcoming season and release the results daily over a week+ span. We show our season in three-game blocks at a time and go right up through the playoffs – showing team records/standings and adding a little quick commentary on each block of weeks and for every playoff game.
Obviously, injuries and trades, etc., will occur and blow all this up…but we run it just for fun and some guidance towards NFL over/under win total bets to consider…if there is a real divergence we’re seeing vs. the betting lines (what we might be really betting).
AFC 1ST-ROUND/WILD CARD PLAYOFFS:
#1) Baltimore (BYE)
(#7) Pittsburgh at (#2) Kansas City
The Chiefs win 81% of the computer simulations.
Tough 1st-round matchup for the Steelers to have any hope of advancing in this Faux playoff. The Steelers limped into the playoffs, saving Mike Tomlin’s job for another season.
(#6) Las Vegas at (#3) Houston
The Texans win 70% of the computer simulations.
The Texans win their division again…win a playoff game again – now, can they finally win the next round and make it to the AFC finals? The Raiders had a solid season, bolstered by some enthusiasm for the new stadium in Las Vegas.
(#5) Tennessee at (#4) Buffalo
Buffalo wins 52% of the computer simulations.
An AFC East title secured followed by a slog of a win over the Titans – weather will be Buffalo’s friend with this home playoff game.
Next Round (Divisional) Matchups:
(#4) Buffalo at (#1) Baltimore
(#3) Houston at (#2) Kansas City
Tomorrow: the 1st-round of the NFC playoffs
