2017 NFL record projections

With NFL training camps opening, all 32 teams have largely taken form for 2017. So before injuries, benchings, firings and (more) suspensions start shaping the season, here’s USA TODAY Sports’ annual prediction of how the season will unfold with record projections for each team based on picking all 256 games, plus a bonus playoff forecast.


In January 1998, President Clinton invited a couple dozen people to Camp David for a weekend screening of the movie “Good Will Hunting”. The guest list included film actors Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Robin Williams, and Minnie Driver; along with film director Gus Van Sant and producer Lawrence Bender.

Other guests included National Security Advisor Sandy Berger, Senator Tom Daschle, Secretary of State Madeleine Albright; Clinton friends Terry and Dorothy McAuliffe; Harvey Weinstein (Miramax); and actress Gwyneth Paltrow.

The weekend included a tour of the presidential retreat; watching the NFL football playoffs on a big-screen TV in Laurel Lodge; a formal five-course dinner also in Laurel; the Good Will Hunting screening in the movie theater in Hickory Lodge; and some late-night bowling.
