    As a Packer fan living in Tampa, I really hope your prediction is on the money. As it stands though, I get the feeling Detroit might eek out 10 wins somehow.

    Wow, a 6 game suspension for Zeke Elliott. I'd probably bump Dallas down to about 8-8 now and give the NFC East to New York.

    They still have Dak Prescott, Dez Bryant, and that O-line. Now if Dak or Dez goes down, then all bets are off.

    Let's also keep in mind that Dallas has a fairly strong line of RBs behind Zeke with Morris and Rod Smith. While not exactly the level of Zeke or even McFadden (who will be out 6 weeks), that O-line certainly helps, especially when it comes to running up the middle with the best center in the game in T-Fred.
