New, comments

With the start of the NFL season just hours away from its official start, the Battle Red Blog writing staff brings you their 2015 NFL predictions.

In lieu of a crystal ball - gaze deeply into the Bill O'Brien's bubble.... uh, gross.

Our long national nightmare is over - it's football season.  With the NFL slate kicking off a scant few hours from now when the Patriots host the Steelers, it's time for the staff (and friends) of Battle Red Blog to give you a face-full of predictions (note that our Texans-specific predictions will run tomorrow).  Predictions that brought us such hits in 2014 as:

Comeback player of the year - Robert Griffin III (Rivers)
DROY - Jadeveon Clowney - (Everybody)
AFC Wild Card - Jacksonville - (NOBODY... NOBODY SAID THAT!  DON'T LOOK!)

It's nearly a clean sweep for Denver in the AFC West, other than MDC, who is known to type while drinking and taking repeated blows to the head.  New England and Seattle swept their respective divisions among BRB writers, and there's a lot of love for up-and-comers Minnesota in the NFC wild card race.

Here are our predictions for the 2015 individual NFL awards:

OROY DROY OPOY DPOY MVP
Rivers Marcus Mariota Vic Beasley Andrew Luck J.J. Watt Andrew Luck
BFD Jameis Winston Leonard Williams Andrew Luck J.J. Watt Andrew Luck
Kollmann Amari Cooper Stephone Anthony Matt Ryan Aaron Donald J.J. Watt
kdentify Jameis Winston Leonard Williams Andrew Luck J.J. Watt J.J. Watt
Weston Melvin Gordon Leonard Williams Eddie Lacy J.J. Watt Andrew Luck
MDC Amari Cooper Bernardrick McKinney Tom Brady J.J. Watt J.J. Watt
Capt Ron Marcus Mariota Randy Gregory Andrew Luck Justin Houston J.J. Watt
Tim Amari Cooper Leonard Williams Andrew Luck J.J. Watt Tom Brady
Dunsmore Amari Cooper Leonard Williams Aaron Rodgers J.J. Watt Aaron Rodgers
Chris Jameis Winston Leonard Williams Adrian Peterson J.J. Watt Andrew Luck
Overall Amari Cooper Leonard Williams Andrew Luck J.J. Watt Watt/Luck (tie)
