After falling just short of winning Super Bowl XLIX, Seattle is again the team to beat in the NFC West, but staying atop the division won't be easy this season. The Rams made significant moves during the off-season, highlighted by a quarterback swap with the Eagles, passing off Sam Bradford to Chip Kelly and getting Nick Foles in return. In Arizona, Carson Palmer will be back under center, but their success could depend on whether or not he (and a few other players) can stay healthy. It's a different tune for the 49ers, who lost not just several top players to free agency and retirement, but also a significant number of coaches in a tumultuous off-season. Expectations are low in San Francisco, but the talent is there.
So how will the division play out? Greg Bedard has picked every single game of the NFL regular season, and below are his predictions for the NFC West.
