We are down to two NFL teams and in a few days we will be tuning in to one of the most polarizing sporting events in the world, the Super Bowl. This year will be Super Bowl LI (51) and the two teams battling for the Lombardi Trophy will be the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons.
Every July for the past few years, before the NFL season even starts, the TeamBoydTv LIVE crew – Glass (GWS), Bigg Q and JB (TeamBoydTV) get together for eight weeks and give you their preseason divisional breakdown of all 32 teams; the videos are aired on YouTube (TeamBoydTv Turbo channel) and the breakdown consists of what we think of each team, what they need, what they did during the offseason and what we think their record will be for the regular season.
I usually document the picks just because and get a laugh on how they match up to the final result. This season I just took a more detailed look and was surprised how accurate our picks were. Of course there were teams that even the most seasoned prognosticator couldn’t have picked up (yeah, I’m talking about the Cowboys and the lowly Browns), but the picks were impressive none-the-less.
I decided to post them here to show you how we faired and to prove that we do know what we are talking about when it comes to these NFL teams. When you have free time, check out our divisional picks on the TeamBoydTv Turbo channel on YouTube and we will send you reminders of our 2017 episodes starting in July.
