Looking back at my predictions...


At the beginning of the season, I predicted the Packer's season (game by game) according to how I saw fit. I decided to take a look back at my predictions and see how I was doing. I predicted the Packers to be 3-1 as I was wrong about the Bengals game (although I definitely stand by what I said about Cincinnati). I decided to try and write a prediction each week comparing it to my original prediction.

Here is what I wrote about the Ravens game before the season:

Week 6 @ Baltimore Ravens- I think the Ravens defense will be really good, but I also think their offense will be mediocre. I’m not a big believer in Joe Flacco, and the loss of Boldin and Pitta will really hurt this offense. So another Packers win on the road? Actually, I think Mason Crosby misses a game winner and Ravens squeak out a victory. L 21-23 (3-2)

After watching 5 weeks of the NFL Season, here is my new prediction:

Week 6 @ Baltimore Ravens- Both teams are coming off of big wins. I definitely overestimated how good the Raven's defense is, and I think I pegged the offense just about right. That being said, Joe Flacco is really streaky and could carve up the Packer's secondary if Perry and Neal can't get to the QB. I expect CB Casey Hayward to return on defense and QB Aaron Rodgers to dominate a vulnerable Ravens secondary. It will be a tough game on the road, but Mason Crosby is 9-9 on the season. Instead of missing the game winner, I predict he hits the game winner and the Packers win a big one on the road. W 27-24 (3-2)

Finally, here are my updated end of season predictions.
