More football fun with the AFC

Last week I went out on a limb and told you the teams I think will be the teams to beat in the National Football Conference (NFC). Well folks I will admit it, this week I cheated on my predictions in the American Football Conference (AFC) - not by much, but a little. I will tell you the change I made involved a team with a quarterback whose initials are T and B, but other than that, they're all the same as they were prior to week one in the NFL.

Pro football fun: Let's look at the NFC

Well it's that time of the year again, ball season, and for me there is no ball, like football. Nothing keeps my attention like football, and especially at is best level, the NFL.
