Back to football! I know you've missed it as much as I have. At this point it is incredibly tough to truly predict how good any team is or will be by Week 1. The Top 4 are pretty much agreed upon by everyone, but aside from that, predictions are kind of a crapshoot. So now's the time to take some credibility risks and bump up some underdog teams. I say the Texans (Clowney AND Watt? Seriously?) and Falcons will have comeback seasons and the Lions will finally start matching the incredible talent on their roster with actual play on the field. The Colts have the easiest schedule in the league, so they get a bump, while the Panthers have fallen as they lost receiver after receiver. They're not in my Top 15, but the Buccaneers are a team to watch out for also. And finally, I'm giving a shout-out to the Ravens. I'm always lower on them than everyone else, so this time instead of telling them to prove me wrong, I'm rating them high and telling them to prove me right. So how did everything play out after Free Agency and the Draft? Let's get to it; hike!
Nipping at #10's heels:
Cardinals (#15), Bengals (#14), Texans (#13), Lions (#12), Panthers (#11)
