CHARLOTTE, September 5, 2012 — Welcome to Narcotics for Leatherheads.
After seven agonizing months, the 2012 NFL Season is finally upon us. The Dallas Cowboys visit the New York Giants, followed by another 255 regular season games and then the playoff fight for the Lombardi Trophy.
Here are my predictions for the 2012 NFL Season. I am only giving predicted results without stating why. That is for the comments sections. One thing to keep in mind is that in a couple of divisions, the better team has a worse record due to a brutal schedule.
I think the Texans are the best team in the AFC South, but the Titans have the more favorable schedule. The San Francisco 49ers are the class of the NFC, but will not have the best record. The Giants will not repeat and may miss the playoffs altogether. As for my beloved Raiders, it will be a step backward this year but a better 2013.
Here are my 2012 NFL predictions.

Dallas Cowboys 10-6
