Athlon Sports' 2020 NFL Division Picks and Playoff Predictions

With our preview magazine available to order online, a quick peek at Athlon's picks heading into the season

This has not been a typical NFL offseason because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, but the hope is that there will be football this fall. The virtual draft was a big hit and while teams have not been able to resume workouts at their facilities, restrictions on players, coaches and other personnel are slowly being relaxed as the focus has shifted to what training camps and preseason will look like later this summer.


We are ready for some football just like everyone else and Athlon Sports' 2020 Pro Football magazine is available for purchase online to help you get ready for the upcoming season.


And here's a sneak peek on how we see divisions shaking out and our playoff picks for the 2020 season.
