Picking 2022 NFL Division Winners

NFL logoThe NFL used to feature many head coaches with long tenures than became synonymous with their teams. The same can be said for players of previous generations. Many start players were able to play out their entire careers with one team.

In today's NFL, results are expected immediately. That mindset has created an environment where coaches and players are always on the move, which can severely affect the divisional rankings from year to year.

Modern NFL teams and fans are used to attempts at reloading, as well as "tanking" for a high draft pick and accepting a losing season to do so. It creates parity in the league and provides an atmosphere for constant change, where last year's bottom-ranked team can win the division the following season. It has also peaked interest in NFL Draft betting, as well as wagering on the free agent player market.

The only thing that's for sure is that nothing's for sure when it comes to the final divisional rankings in the NFL. Read on to discover who we think will win each NFL division in 2020, and why we think they'll find themselves at the top of the heap after the completion of their respective 16-game schedules. Don't bet on football until reading through our list of NFL season division winner predictions.
