2016 NBA Playoffs Predictions: 1st Round

Here's a fun fact for you to enjoy, the 2016 NBA Playoffs are the first edition in four years to not have a single team under .500 make the postseason. Of course, this season was defined by the Golden State Warriors as they finished the regular season with a record 73-9 record, breaking a record set by the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls that was once thought to be unbreakable.

The Warriors are expected by most to roll on through and win the NBA Finals but we still have a ways to go until we get to that point. Here are my predictions for the 1st Round.

2016 NFL on CBS Schedule

The 2016 NFL season will be the 57th season of NFL coverage on what we once referred to as the Columbia Broadcasting System. And combined with their piece of Thursday Night Football, CBS will be carrying more professional football than any other network.

We will cover their regular Sunday afternoon coverage here and you can see their 2016 schedule below.

2016 ESPN Monday Night Football Schedule

This will be the 47th season of Monday Night Football and its 11th season on ESPN. What will the 2016 NFL season schedule have in store for the "Worldwide Leader?" Let's take a look.

2016 NBC Sunday Night Football Schedule

The Sunday Night Football package is considered by most to be the top broadcast package in terms of quality of the schedule in all of the NFL and with this year's schedule below, it is easy to see why. Let's take a look at the 2016 schedule for SNF on NBC.

2016 Thursday Night Football Schedule

Thursday Night Football returns once again and while you have got the usual suspects in CBS and NFL Network, we now have a third network in the mix in NBC. And not only that, we have got some of the games being streamed on Twitter! In short, what a time to be alive.

Let's take a look at the Thursday Night Football schedule for the 2016 NFL season.

The Rams have made a very risky trade for the draft's top pick

Goff & Wentz (USATSI)
It was not that long ago that the then-St. Louis Rams were involved in a blockbuster NFL Draft trade involving a team moving up for a quarterback, four years ago to be precise. That year, the Rams traded away the second pick to Washington in exchange for three first round picks and a second for the right to ultimately select Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Jump to the present and it is the Rams, now in Southern California, that are moving up to presumably select a quarterback and this time, they're jumping up to the top pick. Los Angeles will give them the 15th, 43rd, 45th and 76th picks in this year's draft, plus a first and a third in next year's draft.

2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs Predictions: 1st Round

The Stanley Cup Playoffs kick on Wednesday night and for the first time since 1970, there are no Canadians teams in the playoffs at all. And for some perspective, there were only 12 teams in the NHL that year and there were two Canadians clubs (one of whom, the Canadiens, lost out on a tiebreaker). So there's that.

The road to the Stanley Cup is now on, but who will survive the 1st Round with their dreams intact? Here are my predictions.
