Everyone is sleeping on Rivers. This guy was a top-3 QB not too long ago. I think he's in line for an MVP caliber season. Everyone else in that division has question marks. Can Manning stay upright and playing like an All-Pro forever? No. The Chiefs were the worst team in the NFL last year. Are they going to bounce back past .500 that quickly? Probably not. The Raiders suck.
I'm not so sold on the Cowboys being there, but I'm dead set on the Chargers being the AFC rep in the Super Bowl.
I would have no problem if you had predicted Cincinnati winning the division. They probably are the most talented team in the division (though they have the 3rd best QB). I think they will be neck-and-neck with Baltimore all year. But you said Celeveland. And they are not the most talnted team. Baltimore has them beat at receiver, quarterback, running back, and linebacker. Cleveland will be awful this year. They won't win more than 2 division games.
Rivers was never a top-3 QB. Brady, Manning, and Brees have alwasy been better than him. At best he was 4th (and I'm not saying that). They have no rushing attack, their line sucks, and their receivers blow. I suppose their defense isn't too bad. But if they even win 8 games I'll be shocked.
