ESPN simulated the entire 2019 NFL season
I think they need to work on their algorithm because it's laughable how big of an outlier their season prediction has become.
They have the Chiefs finishing 9-7 (I would take the over on that one all day long)
They have the Packers at 13-3 (With a new coach, new offense install, what is this a 1 out of 100 scenario?)
The 49ers finishing at 11-5 (Maybe if Buckner, Ford, Bosa, Day, and Armstead all have great years. Personally, I don't see that offense being consistent enough to grab 11 wins)
The Cowboys finishing 7-9 (Maybe if they get decimated by injuries and lose some close games along the way. I think that young defense is better than people give them credit for and will keep them in some games. When you look at the metrics Dallas is at 9.263 wins this year. Which means there is almost a 60% likelihood they fall in the range of 8-8 to 10-6 this year. It also says there is about a 9% chance they finish 11-5 and only about a 7% chance they finish 7-9. (I am rounding off these percentages)
So ESPN is describing an unlikely event, the report I got shows the Cowboys chances of having a losing season (7-9 or worse) at 18%. So I am going to trust an ivy league IT alumni team and their complex programs over whatever ESPN is using. So DIMEMAN if your listening, don't drink the ESPN Kool-Aid.
