You’ve already soaked in our official 2016 NFL Preview and Predictions for the brand-spanking new season. Actually, we’re sure you’ve seen everybody’s official 2016 NFL Preview and Predictions for the new football season.

I mean, “Why can’t she be biased, she’s the mom of a player?”
Well, she works at ESPN now. Therefore, it presents a bit of a problem. She also chose Eli Manning to come away with his first ever NFL MVP.

In all seriousness, though, nobody knows what the hell is going to happen in 2016. She might as well take the Giants.
