The 2019 NFL season is finally here and oh boy are there some great storylines this year.
Will Antonio Brown ever actually play for the Oakland Raiders (doubtful at this point)?
How will the Indianapolis Colts adjust to life without Andrew Luck?
Will the Tennessee Titans quell the Cleveland Browns hype in week one?
Speaking of the Titans, will Marcus Mariota receive an extension?
Can Nick Foles make a difference in Jacksonville?
Will Ezekiel Elliot live up to his massive contract extension?
And these are only a couple of the great storylines to keep an eye on during the 2019 season. Plenty more will develop as the season progresses.
It’s impossible to accurately answer any of the above questions.
But we still make predictions anyway. And here are the predictions I have for the 2019 season.
