46. . . . Indianapolis Colts. 16. team

Being well-coached can go a long way and the Colts should be better coached this year. Carson Wentz is gone and the Colts will be relying on long-time veteran Matt Ryan to lead them. Can he? Some would argue that the Falcons had better personnel last year than the Colts do this year but he will be well supported by the coaching staff.

Philadelphia Eagles. 17. team. 54. . .

The Philadelphia Eagles did quite a bit this off-season including the addition of WR A.J. Brown. Is that enough? Quarterback Jalen Hurts has looked good at times but also inconsistent as many young QBs do. He will need to lead the Eagles in a division that isn’t overly strong. Defensively, the Eagles should be o.k. but they are not a top 10 unit yet, camp could change that. They should be the best in the division after the off-season they had. I expect the Eagles to be better than 17th sooner rather than later.

18. team. 47. . . . New England Patriots

Agree or not, the Patriots are an enigma this year. They will use a co-coordinator system on offense, have a depleted offensive line, questionable talent at WR, and a QB who has yet to be asked to lead the team to wins. Defensively the Patriots are really good and that will be their saving grace until the offense can get on the same page.

123. . . . Dallas Cowboys. 19. team

This could go many ways. The Cowboys should be better than they are and that is something that should be said every year. They took losses to the offensive line and the WR group and didn’t get better in free agency. Defensively they are good but Micah Parsons can’t be a one-man show in Big D. This could and should be a coin flip between the Eagles and Cowboys this year.

. . Washington Commanders. 20. team. 58.

There are so many off-field issues surrounding this team that Carson Wentz in a good season can’t overcome. They have the talent on paper on both sides of the ball but overcoming those off-field issues will be critical. Ron Rivera likely could be gone after this season and it might even be by his own doing. He deserves so much more.
