ESPN Makes Embarrassing Mistake Predicting Wins for NFL Teams During Their Schedule Release Special
Upon the release of the regular season schedule, ESPN attempted to predict the wins of the all 32 NFL teams. Unfortunately for the so-called Worldwide Leader of Sports no one was checking if their math was correct.
assuming there are no ties, NFL teams will go a combined 256-256 this season.
So when ESPN’s team of NFL writers compiled their predictions, it was amusing to see that they picked a total of 289 wins and only 223 losses. Yes, league-wide the Worldwide Leader thinks NFL teams are going to go 289-223, a .564 winning percentage in a world where the only certainty is a .500 winning percentage.
This is pretty embarrassing and hilarious at the same time. Maybe ESPN cut all the fact checkers when they laid off all those people last year.
