Our predictions for the 2018 NFL season

Elsa/Getty ImagesThe Business Insider Sports team makes its picks for every division in the NFL, as well as our selections for the Super Bowl LIII champions.

The 2018 NFL season is upon us!

On Thursday night, the Philadelphia Eagles will raise their Super Bowl banner at home and host the Atlanta Falcons in the first game of the year.

To celebrate the occasion, we made our predictions for how the 2018 season might play out. The powers in the NFL have shifted quite a bit this offseason, with the Rams reloading and new quarterbacks emerging on many teams in the league. Still, there some stalwarts you can trust – it’s tough to find anyone in the country not picking the Patriots to walk away with the AFC East yet again.

You can find our picks for every division and the eventual Super Bowl champion below, with playoffs teams in bold.
