1). The Kansas City Chiefs finally have explosive playmakers- Dynamic rookie Tyreek Hill joins stud tight end Travis Kelce as the twin centerpieces of what is now a dangerous Kansas City attack.
2). The Texans are going to get destroyed again- Just like last year; this team has a microscopic chance of being competitive in a playoff game, much less winning one.
3). The Packers may be emerging as a Super Bowl favorite in the NFC- A win in Detroit this Sunday would have to make people consider them one of the top two teams in the NFC.
4). The Dolphins made the playoffs yesterday, but it won’t last past a game- The Dolphins have a running game that is scary to stop, but their defense got pushed around in Buffalo so bad, they will be hard pressed to win a playoff game with it.
5). Oakland is no longer a threat to the Patriots- Derek Carr’s injury relegates the Raiders to the what might have been category. This is still a talented team, and they may still be able to get a win in the playoffs, but they can not beat New England without Carr.
6). The Steelers pose the biggest threat to the Patriots- Defensively they are not very good, but offensively they have a chance to outscore whoever they play.
7). Tampa Bay and Tennessee are still a year away- Both talented, inconsistent teams this year, they will be back stronger than ever next year,
8). The Seahawks look less imposing than ever- Offensively they have a below average offensive line in front of QB Russell Wilson. On defense, they just do not look as good as they once did.
9). The Rams are bad no matter who coaches them- They need a new coach to come in and blow the entire team up.
10). The Atlanta Falcons are a Super Bowl contender- The Falcons are dominant on offense and suddenly getting to be a tough defensive team.
11). Kirk Cousins is an excellent NFL QB- Win or loss it seems Cousins puts up numbers every week. If the Skins can slip in the playoffs, they will be dangerous for anyone to play.
