This is part of an ongoing 8-part series predicting the 2015 NFL season. Making these predictions are a headache. It's almost futile to say who is "good" and who is "bad" at this point in the season, but I will give it a reasonable shot. AFC South Prediction Colts* Texans Jaguars ...

Good, Bad, & Ugly: 2015-1 – New England Patriots

I honestly thought I would write this article this morning with one of two emotions: enthusiasm or disappointment.
