Here’s an early fearless forecast of the 2016 NFL win totals

Unlike last summer, when Tom Brady and the NFL traded shots in a circus of a court case, this offseason should be relatively free of soap-opera drama. But bet on some unpredictability.

The preseason is five months away, and something significant is bound to happen. An injury to a star quarterback could change a lot, for example.

There will be a little quarterback movement. Peyton Manning has not retired, though he’s probable to part ways soon with the Denver Broncos. Robert Griffin III is on the way out of Washington. Colin Kaepernick is on shaky ground in San Francisco. Brady is in New England for the long run, although the league’s lawyers still are chasing him.

The opponents for each team are set, yet the schedule has not been announced. The first round of the NFL Draft is April 28. Most teams will experience only subtle changes between now and Week 1 in September.

After a brief post-Super Bowl break, oddsmakers at CG Technology sports books posted the first regular-season win totals for 2016, so here’s an absurdly early, fearless forecast for all 32 teams in order of projected win totals:

Green Bay Packers (10½ Over -135)

Home: Chicago, Detroit, Minnesota, Dallas, N.Y. Giants, Seattle, Houston, Indianapolis

Away: Chicago, Detroit, Minnesota, Philadelphia, Washington, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Tennessee

Analysis: In August, the Packers emerged as the favorites to win Super Bowl 50. But their season was essentially wrecked in the preseason, when top wide receiver Jordy Nelson went down to a knee injury. The offensive line crumbled, too, and Aaron Rodgers’ numbers suffered. Assuming Nelson is healthy, Rodgers will be throwing to one of the league’s most talented receiving corps. Despite all that went wrong, Green Bay finished 10-6. The Packers, who face the AFC South and NFC East, get to host their toughest nondivision opponents (Cowboys, Giants, Seahawks, Texans and Colts) at Lambeau Field while drawing a pair of weak teams (Jaguars and Titans) on the road. The schedule is favorable, so expect the public to pile on the Packers’ bandwagon again this season.

Pick: Over (12-4)

New England Patriots (10½ Over -135)

Home: Buffalo, Miami, N.Y. Jets, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Houston, Los Angeles, Seattle

Away: Buffalo, Miami, N.Y. Jets, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Denver, Arizona, San Francisco

Analysis: Bill Belichick’s offseason game plan will focus on rebuilding the offensive line and adding a playmaking receiver to help Brady. The Patriots probably will repeat their 7-1 home record, with the Seahawks presenting the stiffest test. Road games against the Broncos, Cardinals and Steelers are the highest hurdles on the schedule. Here are New England’s win totals for the past five years — 12, 12, 12, 12, 13. Notice a pattern? Betting on Belichick and Brady to flop is a foolish idea.

Pick: Over (12-4)

Seattle Seahawks (10½ Over -125)

Home: Arizona, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Carolina, Philadelphia, Buffalo, Miami

Away: Arizona, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Green Bay, New England, N.Y. Jets

Analysis: Mercurial running back Marshawn Lynch retired, but Seattle coach Pete Carroll is not going sleepless over it. The Seahawks have a good shot to sweep their home schedule, and the Panthers are returning for a double-revenge game. With the Super Bowl hangover in the past, expect this team, especially on the defensive side, to return to dominant form. The Seahawks were plus-146 in point differential last season, fourth-best in the league. Barring an injury to quarterback Russell Wilson, Seattle is a threat to post the best record in the NFL.

Pick: Over (12-4)

Carolina Panthers (10½ Under -130)

Home: Atlanta, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Arizona, San Francisco, Minnesota, Kansas City, San Diego

Away: Atlanta, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Los Angeles, Seattle, Washington, Denver, Oakland

Analysis: Did someone mention the Super Bowl hangover? Cam Newton dropped the ball (twice) in the biggest game of his career, and history tells us he’ll have a hard time bouncing back. Still, he will see No. 1 wideout Kelvin Benjamin, a preseason injury casualty, back on the field. Carolina returns most of the key pieces from the league’s No. 6 defense. Another 15-1 season is unrealistic. But the schedule looks soft so, even if the Panthers start slowly and struggle, it’s difficult to envision a result worse than 10-6. Seven teams won 11 or more games last season, and four teams won exactly 10 games. If 11 teams post double-digit wins again, Carolina is likely to be in that class.

Pick: Over (11-5)

Pittsburgh Steelers (10½ Under -135)

Home: Baltimore, Cincinnati, Cleveland, New England, N.Y. Jets, Kansas City, Dallas, N.Y. Giants

Away: Baltimore, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Buffalo, Miami, Indianapolis, Philadelphia, Washington

Analysis: The Steelers will be a popular Super Bowl pick, and why not? Ben Roethlisberger will lead an explosive offense. Pittsburgh ranked No. 4 at 26.4 points per game in 2015 despite Roethlisberger missing four games and running back Le’Veon Bell going down to a knee injury in November. In the playoffs, a banged-up Roethlisberger, working without Bell and wideout Antonio Brown, nearly upset the Broncos in Denver. A young defense is improving. On paper, the Steelers are impressive. But here’s why Pittsburgh might hit a pothole — Roethlisberger takes a lot of big shots and is showing the wear and tear. It’s doubtful he can stay healthy for an entire season.

Pick: Under (10-6)

Arizona Cardinals (9½ Over -120)

Home: Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Washington, New England, N.Y. Jets

Away: Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, Carolina, Minnesota, Buffalo, Miami

Analysis: After a poor postseason, quarterback Carson Palmer will need to prove himself all over again. Palmer passed for 35 touchdowns with 11 interceptions in the regular season, and the Cardinals scored 30.6 points per game to rank No. 2 in the league. But Palmer threw six interceptions in two playoff games, and his confidence had to take a beating. On the bright side, Bruce Arians is a great coach, and his team won’t regress too much from a 13-3 finish. Arizona will have to contend with an improved NFC West and difficult road schedule. Palmer is a question mark, but Arians and the defense will be reliable.

Pick: Over (10-6)

Cincinnati Bengals (9½ Over -115)

Home: Baltimore, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Miami, Denver, Philadelphia, Washington

Away: Baltimore, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, New England, N.Y. Jets, Houston, Dallas, N.Y. Giants

Analysis: The Bengals’ meltdown in a playoff loss to the Steelers could carry over to next season. The coach-quarterback combination of Marvin Lewis-Andy Dalton always creates doubters. Lewis is 0-7 in the postseason with Cincinnati, and this might be his last shot. A rigorous road schedule is another reason to be pessimistic, because the Bengals could slip to 3-5 away from home. The rest of the AFC North should be improved, so the Bengals are prime candidates to take a couple of steps back.

Pick: Under (9-7)

Denver Broncos (9½ Under -120)

Home: Kansas City, Oakland, San Diego, Houston, Indianapolis, New England, Atlanta, Carolina

Away: Kansas City, Oakland, San Diego, Jacksonville, Tennessee, Cincinnati, New Orleans, Tampa Bay

Analysis: Is Brock Osweiler ready to take over for Manning? It’s not a tough question. After a seven-start audition, it appears Osweiler is ready, and expect him to be re-signed after Manning’s salary is dumped. Denver’s top-ranked defense is retaining Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Von Miller, who was slapped with the exclusive franchise tag. The schedule is manageable. The Broncos could be even better if Osweiler delivers, so after a 12-4 season, a win total set below 10 looks too low.

Pick: Over (10-6)

Minnesota Vikings (9 Over -130)

Home: Chicago, Detroit, Green Bay, Dallas, N.Y. Giants, Arizona, Houston, Indianapolis

Away: Chicago, Detroit, Green Bay, Philadelphia, Washington, Carolina, Jacksonville, Tennessee

Analysis: Mike Zimmer is proving to be one of the league’s best coaches. The Vikings overtook the Packers to win the NFC North, but don’t count on a repeat. Green Bay’s strength is what Minnesota is missing — an elite quarterback. Teddy Bridgewater still has a long way to go. The Vikings were effective rolling with league rushing champ Adrian Peterson, but they ranked 31st in passing offense last season. Minnesota might fall back to 8-8, but with the AFC South and NFC East on the schedule, Zimmer can keep this team in playoff contention.

Pick: Push (9-7)

Kansas City Chiefs (9 Over -115)

Home: Denver, Oakland, San Diego, Jacksonville, Tennessee, N.Y. Jets, New Orleans, Tampa Bay

Away: Denver, Oakland, San Diego, Houston, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Carolina

Analysis: Just when everyone was ready to bury coach Andy Reid, he pulled off a miracle. The Chiefs went from 1-5 to 11-5. It seemed to be a mystery how he did it, but the reality is the league’s No. 7 defense carried an anemic passing offense. A soft home schedule sets up Kansas City for another winning season, but any projection for the Chiefs should be as conservative as quarterback Alex Smith. The oddsmakers set the right number.

Pick: Push (9-7)

Dallas Cowboys (9 Under -125)

Home: N.Y. Giants, Philadelphia, Washington, Chicago, Detroit, Tampa Bay, Baltimore, Cincinnati

Away: N.Y. Giants, Philadelphia, Washington, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Green Bay, Buffalo, Miami

Analysis: The Cowboys were brutally bad at home last season while going 1-7. Nothing can wreck a win-total wager like an injury to a star quarterback, and Tony Romo broke his collarbone twice. Sean Lee, a linebacker who represents the heart of the defense, is about one more head injury from retirement. Nothing has been done to solve the running game woes, wideout Dez Bryant always will be a diva, and tight end Jason Witten is not getting any faster in his old age. It’s amazing coach Jason Garrett still has his job. Following a 4-12 fiasco, there are too many potential problems in Dallas to be too optimistic.

Pick: Under (8-8)

Indianapolis Colts (8½ Over -155)

Home: Houston, Jacksonville, Tennessee, Kansas City, San Diego, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Detroit

Away: Houston, Jacksonville, Tennessee, Denver, Oakland, N.Y. Jets, Green Bay, Minnesota

Analysis: As disastrous as last season seemed for the Colts and quarterback Andrew Luck, the 8-8 result actually was a good sign. In a bad division, Indianapolis is capable of winning 10 games if Luck is healthy. Luck was limited to seven games after playing in all 16 in each of his first three seasons. In 2014, he passed for 40 touchdowns, and the Colts finished 11-5. In a surprising move, coach Chuck Pagano was retained, and while Pagano is no strategical genius, the players love him.

Pick: Over (9-7)

New York Jets (8 Over -125)

Home: Buffalo, Miami, New England, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Seattle

Away: Buffalo, Miami, New England, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Kansas City, Arizona, San Francisco

Analysis: The Jets caught a lucky break in August, when quarterback Geno Smith suffered a broken jaw in a locker-room fight. Smith was replaced by Ryan Fitzpatrick, who passed for 31 touchdowns while sporting a beard fit for a Steelers defensive lineman. The Jets won 10 games, and coach Todd Bowles won a lot of praise. Aside from two costly losses to the Bills, almost everything went right for the Jets last season. That means some things are about to go wrong. Bowles is in for a mediocre second season.

Pick: Push (8-8)

Buffalo Bills (8 Over -115)

Home: Miami, New England, N.Y. Jets, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Jacksonville, Arizona, San Francisco

Away: Miami, New England, N.Y. Jets, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Oakland, Los Angeles, Seattle

Analysis: A year after the Bills went 9-7 under Doug Marrone, who was fired, the team hired Rex Ryan and slipped to 8-8. Buffalo’s defense declined dramatically to 19th in the league. Ryan’s best move was naming Tyrod Taylor as his starting quarterback. The Bills might not be better, but they are guaranteed to stage a more entertaining sideshow. Rob Ryan has joined his brother on the coaching staff, and that’s a questionable move.

Pick: Push (8-8)

Houston Texans (8 Under -130)

Home: Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Tennessee, Kansas City, San Diego, Cincinnati, Chicago, Detroit

Away: Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Tennessee, Denver, Oakland, New England, Green Bay, Minnesota

Analysis: Until coach Bill O’Brien finds a legitimate quarterback, the Texans are destined to tread water and use their J.J. Watt-led defense to stay afloat. Houston had an unimpressive plus-26 point differential last season and barely squeaked out a winning record at 9-7. Indianapolis is set to return to the top spot in the AFC South. The Texans figure to be underdogs in at least six road games, and they probably will go 0-4 against the Broncos, Patriots, Packers and Vikings.

Pick: Under (7-9)

Oakland Raiders (8 Under -130)

Home: Denver, Kansas City, San Diego, Houston, Indianapolis, Buffalo, Atlanta, Carolina

Away: Denver, Kansas City, San Diego, Jacksonville, Tennessee, Baltimore, New Orleans, Tampa Bay

Analysis: The Raiders, who posted an encouraging 7-9 record, can build around young stars on both sides of the ball. Derek Carr passed for 32 touchdowns last season, and Khalil Mack was second in the league with 15 sacks. Still, Oakland has not won more than eight games in a season since 2002. This number opened at 7½, and sharp money immediately pushed it up. With eight games against AFC South and NFC South opponents, the Raiders could not ask for a much softer schedule. But with the Raiders, we need to see 8-8 to believe it.

Pick: Under (7-9)

Baltimore Ravens (7½ Over -155)

Home: Cincinnati, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Miami, Oakland, Philadelphia, Washington

Away: Cincinnati, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, New England, N.Y. Jets, Jacksonville, Dallas, N.Y. Giants

Analysis: Injuries and narrow losses — seven by six points or fewer — led the Ravens to a 5-11 finish. The highlight for Baltimore was a sweep of the Steelers. Don’t bet on coach John Harbaugh having back-to-back losing seasons. With improvements in the running attack and receiving corps, Joe Flacco could remind everyone he’s an elite quarterback.

Pick: Over (8-8)

New York Giants (7½ Over -130)

Home: Dallas, Philadelphia, Washington, Chicago, Detroit, New Orleans, Baltimore, Cincinnati

Away: Dallas, Philadelphia, Washington, Green Bay, Minnesota, Los Angeles, Cleveland, Pittsburgh

Analysis: Tom Coughlin finally was forced out and replaced by Ben McAdoo, who was a decent offensive coordinator but has no experience as a head coach. McAdoo will be learning on the job, and learning on the job means making mistakes on the job. The offense should be fine. Eli Manning is supported by big-play weapons, and he’s off a season with 35 touchdown passes and 14 interceptions. But the Giants ranked 32nd in total defense, and the defense is not going to get fixed in the offseason.

Pick: Under (7-9)

Washington Redskins (7½ Over -120)

Home: Dallas, N.Y. Giants, Philadelphia, Green Bay, Minnesota, Carolina, Cleveland, Pittsburgh

Away: Dallas, N.Y. Giants, Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, Arizona, Baltimore, Cincinnati

Analysis: Analytics suggest the Redskins won the NFC East by default. Washington ranked 28th in total defense and had a plus-9 point differential, the lowest of the eight division winners. Kirk Cousins’ breakout season (29 touchdowns, 11 interceptions) might prove to be a Nick Foles-like fluke. Cousins is dealing with the pressure to perform up to a big contact now, too. His new one-year deal is worth $19.9 million. He made $660,000 last season.

Pick: Under (6-10)

Philadelphia Eagles (7½ Over -115)

Home: Dallas, N.Y. Giants, Washington, Green Bay, Minnesota, Atlanta, Cleveland, Pittsburgh

Away: Dallas, N.Y. Giants, Washington, Chicago, Detroit, Seattle, Baltimore, Cincinnati

Analysis: The coaching change to Doug Pederson, the former Kansas City offensive coordinator, could be a positive, but who’s certain? Will DeMarco Murray recapture the magic that made him the NFL’s rushing leader in Dallas two years ago? Will Sam Bradford be worth the $26 million he is guaranteed on a new two-year contract? There are many more questions. It’s not easy to find eight wins on the Eagles’ schedule without knowing some answers.

Pick: Under (7-9)

Detroit Lions (7 Over -140)

Home: Chicago, Green Bay, Minnesota, Philadelphia, Washington, Los Angeles, Jacksonville, Tennessee

Away: Chicago, Green Bay, Minnesota, Dallas, N.Y. Giants, New Orleans, Houston, Indianapolis

Analysis: With a three-game win streak to finish the season, the Lions reached a respectable 7-9. But they lost wide receiver Calvin Johnson to retirement. It’s not the wisest idea to bet your paycheck on the coach-quarterback combination of Jim Caldwell-Matthew Stafford. The schedule presents an opportunity for eight wins, but Detroit also could deteriorate into one of the league’s worst teams.

Pick: Under (6-10)

Los Angeles Rams (7 Over -130)

Home: Arizona, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, Carolina, N.Y. Giants, Buffalo, Miami

Away: Arizona, San Francisco, Seattle, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Detroit, New England, N.Y. Jets

Analysis: The Rams are relocating to L.A. and will play their home games at the Coliseum. Still, the best quarterback in town might be playing at the Rose Bowl, and that’s UCLA’s Josh Rosen. RG3 should draw interest from the Rams in addition to the Texans and 49ers. The Rams have a talented defense led by tackle Aaron Donald and an offense with speed receivers and a dynamic back in Todd Gurley, who missed three games yet was the league’s No. 3 rusher with 1,106 yards. But coach Jeff Fisher’s best record in four seasons in St. Louis was 7-8-1. If he can find a quarterback, he can field a playoff team.

Pick: Push (7-9)

Miami Dolphins (7 Over -120)

Home: Buffalo, New England, N.Y. Jets, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Arizona, San Francisco

Away: Buffalo, New England, N.Y. Jets, Baltimore, Cincinnati, San Diego, Los Angeles, Seattle

Analysis: Adam Gase is the new coach in Miami, and he will be a good hire if he can coax more out of inconsistent quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Gase did good work with Jay Cutler in Chicago, so there’s hope for Tannehill. The Dolphins ranked 26th in total offense and 25th in total defense. In the competitive AFC East, it will difficult for the Dolphins to improve on last year’s 6-10 record.

Pick: Under (6-10)

Atlanta Falcons (7 Over -115)

Home: Carolina, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Arizona, San Francisco, Green Bay, Kansas City, San Diego

Away: Carolina, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Los Angeles, Seattle, Philadelphia, Denver, Oakland

Analysis: It has become obvious Matt Ryan never will be an elite quarterback, even with an elite receiver such as Julio Jones. The Falcons opened 5-0 and finished 8-8 last season, getting swept by the Buccaneers and Saints in the NFC South. Atlanta will face a tougher schedule that features eight games against NFC West and AFC West opponents.

Pick: Push (7-9)

San Diego Chargers (7 Under -145)

Home: Denver, Kansas City, Oakland, Jacksonville, Tennessee, Miami, New Orleans, Tampa Bay

Away: Denver, Kansas City, Oakland, Houston, Indianapolis, Cleveland, Atlanta, Carolina

Analysis: What we thought was the Chargers’ final season in San Diego was just one of their worst seasons in San Diego. The Chargers finished 4-12, including 0-6 in the division. Philip Rivers attempted a league-high 661 passes and led the No. 9-ranked offense. He did it behind a bad offensive line and with mostly pedestrian receivers. The defense, ranked No. 20, will miss free-agent safety Eric Weddle. The Chargers went 1-7 on the road last season and could post a similar record next season.

Pick: Under (5-11)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6½ Over -130)

Home: Atlanta, Carolina, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, Denver, Oakland

Away: Atlanta, Carolina, New Orleans, Arizona, San Francisco, Dallas, Kansas City, San Diego

Analysis: The Buccaneers are widely considered a team on the rise. But Lovie Smith is not going along for the ride. He was fired as coach and replaced by Dirk Koetter. Doug Martin was the league’s No. 2 rusher with 1,402 yards. Rookie quarterback Jameis Winston surpassed most expectations after a terrible Week 1 performance. But there are reasons to doubt Tampa Bay’s ceiling. The defense needs repair work, Koetter was a curious hire, and Winston will need to adjust as defensive coordinators scout his weaknesses.

Pick: Under (6-10)

Chicago Bears (6½ Over -120)

Home: Detroit, Green Bay, Minnesota, Philadelphia, Washington, San Francisco, Jacksonville, Tennessee

Away: Detroit, Green Bay, Minnesota, Dallas, N.Y. Giants, Tampa Bay, Houston, Indianapolis

Analysis: There is good news for the Bears, who went 1-7 at home last season. The 49ers, Jaguars and Titans will visit Soldier Field in 2016. The bad news: Jay Cutler returns as the quarterback, and running back Matt Forte is gone. The Bears lost five of six games in the NFC North last season and, oddly, the win came at Green Bay.

Pick: Under (6-10)

New Orleans Saints (6½ Over -115)

Home: Atlanta, Carolina, Tampa Bay, Los Angeles, Seattle, Detroit, Denver, Oakland

Away: Atlanta, Carolina, Tampa Bay, Arizona, San Francisco, N.Y. Giants, Kansas City, San Diego

Analysis: Drew Brees put up nice numbers (32 touchdowns, 11 interceptions and a league-high 4,870 yards) last season, but the Saints were a nightmare otherwise. New Orleans ranked 32nd in scoring defense by allowing 29.8 points per game. The most surprising development was the return of coach Sean Payton, who seemed headed for the Dolphins or Giants. Brees and Payton will keep the Saints competitive, but seven wins looks like a best-case scenario.

Pick: Under (6-10)

Jacksonville Jaguars (6½ Under -125)

Home: Houston, Indianapolis, Tennessee, Denver, Oakland, Baltimore, Green Bay, Minnesota

Away: Houston, Indianapolis, Tennessee, Kansas City, San Diego, Buffalo, Chicago, Detroit

Analysis: In his second season, Blake Bortles made a big leap. He went from 11 touchdown passes as a rookie to 35 as a sophomore. The defense needs to make similar improvement for Jacksonville to win seven games. The Jaguars’ home schedule is more difficult than their road schedule. Roll the dice on Bortles being the real deal.

Pick: Over (7-9)

Tennessee Titans (5½ Over -130)

Home: Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Denver, Oakland, Cleveland, Green Bay, Minnesota

Away: Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Kansas City, San Diego, Miami, Chicago, Detroit

Analysis: Before last year’s draft, Marcus Mariota was touted as a future Super Bowl quarterback by some NFL personnel veterans. He probably will need to leave Tennessee to have a chance to fulfill that prophecy. Mariota had a solid rookie season, but he took some hard knocks. Mike Mularkey is coaching what might be the league’s least talented team.

Pick: Under (4-12)

San Francisco 49ers (5 Over -145)

Home: Arizona, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Dallas, New England, N.Y. Jets

Away: Arizona, Los Angeles, Seattle, Atlanta, Carolina, Chicago, Buffalo, Miami

Analysis: Chip Kelly and his oversized ego will make for an intriguing storyline in San Francisco. He has two options at quarterback with Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert. He has a good defense. Kelly is not the genius that Bill Walsh was, but he’s not a goofball like former coach Jim Tomsula. Tomsula won five games, so Kelly can win six.

Pick: Over (6-10)

Cleveland Browns (4½ Over -130)

Home: Baltimore, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, New England, N.Y. Jets, San Diego, Dallas, N.Y. Giants

Away: Baltimore, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Miami, Tennessee, Philadelphia, Washington

Analysis: The Browns and Titans tied for the league’s worst record at 3-13. Tennessee has its quarterback of the future, but Cleveland is searching for one again after Johnny Manziel turned into a bust. The Browns are expected to pick either North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz or California’s Jared Goff No. 2 in the draft. It’s conceivable Cleveland could be favored in only one home game. It’s going to be a long, painful season for first-year coach Hue Jackson.

Pick: Under (4-12)
