Morning Reaction 2011 NFL Predictions

September 08, 2011 | Luke Jones

With the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints kicking off the 2011 season on Thursday night, Drew Forrester and I looked into our crystal ball for our predictions on how the NFL division races will look and who will be hoisting the Vince Lombardi trophy in Indianapolis on Feb. 5, 2012.

We’ve listed our records for the projected division-winning teams — without scientifically going through the schedule and picking each individual game — and an asterisk (*) denotes the teams earning wild card berths.
