2020 June Faux/Computer Simulated NFL Season (Xavier’s Weeks 16-17)
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).
*Full NFL faux records below.
Comments through this point of the (faux) season:
Anything can happen in week 17…
-- The Browns made the playoffs for the first time since 2002 because of an improved offense.
-- The Ravens got the bye since they have no obvious weak points. They needed LBs in the draft and got them. Most of their key players are at prime age.
-- The Chiefs are significantly weaker on defense, but they can still win any game with Mahomes-Hill-Kelce.
-- The Steelers have the overall top defense, and so they could be dangerous in the playoffs.
-- The Saints are the powerhouse of the NFC, as long as their veterans don't suddenly decline.
-- The 49ers are right with them, but it's questionable whether their offense has enough to go all the way.
-- Since the Bucs finished behind the Saints, it's going to be a struggle to get far as a lower-seeded road team.
-- It looks like the Redskins, Panthers, and Jaguars will be in the running for Trevor Lawrence.
