I predicted 12-4 last year. I'll add a little for another year experience for Carr, but take off for the tougher schedule. I don't think Reggie's done in FA, and we need a good draft, but will say 11-5. Key will be AT LEAST splitting with KC.
The road schedule is nearly identical to last year. We start with 3/4 on the road and finish with 3/4 on the road, except Kansas City doesn't get the scheduling advantage with us like they did last year (bye before coming to Oakland and at home against us on a Thursday night).
I would have never guessed 12 wins last year. That being said, I'm guessing 9-10 wins this year. We improve, but we have a tougher schedule. Since the whole division has a tougher schedule, 10 wins might clench the division.
Of course hopefully, once again, I underestimated the team.
I'm not seeing how some of you guys have us winning 11 & 12 games. We have the worst defense in the division and it may not be close. I think we win 9 maybe 10 games. So disappointed in how the defense was neglected in free agency. Sure, our offense is good but we aren't pulling off the magic this year that we pulled last year. Not to mention last year's draft really hurt us. Ward and Calhoun were complete wasted picks. Joseph has potential but needs to stay on the field.
