NFL Predictions Week 1: Chris Simms’ Weekly Predictions

This preseason, I've seen a team run the same offensive play three times in a quarter.
I've seen another roll out the same, vanilla defense throughout an opening drive with no substitutions just to see if their players knew how to run it.

The trends I've found—combined with what I know about roster composition, player development, scheme fit, team chemistry, coaching style and matchup advantages—all help to make these predictions as solid as you can get.
