Look at the last five years: 13, 7, 11, 7 and 7 wins. These Saints have been consistently solid, too talented and potent on offense to fall into the lower realms. A little defensive improvement keeps that win floor at 7 as long as Drew Brees continues to work his magic.
Josh Gordon will miss the first four games of the season as he is given what is essentially his ninth chance to remain on the straight and narrow.
Despite believing in Hue Jackson and remaining fairly optimistic Robert Griffin will be the best Browns QB since the Derek Anderson miracle year back in 2007. The young playmakers from the last two drafts could gel into something pretty nice. But it isn't likely to happen in 2016.
The core team returns largely intact from a squad that ripped off 10 straight wins after a rocky start. Winning the playoff game over Houston should give them confidence heading into 2016.
The Jets' defensive line will continue to be an area of strength with Muhammad Wilkerson re-signed on an $86 million deal.
