Ravens have to be the frontrunners, they'll basically have the same team. I do think Lamar is forced to pass a bit more in 2020, but he's electric when he runs. 11-5.

Steelers should probably be second most likely, but the Browns fan in me hates to admit it. With Ben back, 10-6.

Browns have talent, once again, but why should this time be any different? 8-8.

Bengals won't be actively tanking, but rookie QB, second year HC, I think they struggle again. 5-11.

history suggests otherwise. they've had no intention of fielding a winning product and are content with making money

I can see any of the four teams winning
I would put Rams as most likely to miss the playoffs of the four teams
But AZ is least likely to win the Division.

I, of course, like the Hawks.
They should have won the division this year in that final game.

Of course, the real answer will be the team with the fewest injuries.

49ers will most likely miss the playoffs next year. That's just how it tends to work

Nice narrative, but 8 of last 10 SB losers still made the playoffs the next year.

2009-2010	IND	yes
2010-2011	PIT	yes
2011-2012	NEP	yes
2012-2013	SFO	yes
2013-2014	DEN	yes
2014-2015	SEA	yes
2015-2016	CAR	no
2016-2017	ATL	yes
2017-2018	NEP	yes
2018-2019	LAR	no

Is Vic Beasley a bust or one hit wonder?

As the guy working in Todd Bowles' defense in Tampa, Barrett thrived like a duck to water. His 19.5 sacks are 1.5 more than the career-high of his former teammate, Von Miller. For his part, Miller couldn't be happier for his former teammate of five years.

“He could have played on the field, it was just the way things were set up,’’ Von Miller said told Klis on Saturday on the NFL Honors red carpet. “But you saw when he got his own situation, he started to develop and he just blew up. It’s not really a surprise to us because we saw it all the time in practice going against the ones.”

Again, it's hard to fault the Broncos for letting Barrett walk. But there's something to be said for getting starter's reps for the entirety of a season, which allows a pass rusher to get into the zone and groove of a game, learn to set up and exploit opponents' pass-blocking tells and establish more consistent results.

Is this another bad decision by Elway? Could have used the pick they made with Chubb on something else had they the ability to see into the future.

I'm not sold on Barrett yet.
