The Denver Broncos will give it another shot with coordinator Bill Musgrave, who took over last season for Mike McCoy after a miserable offensive stretch. But we’re still talking about a team that was afraid to give 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch serious run—to the point it splurged on a free-agent quarterback.
That’d be Case Keenum, the one-hit wonder who heads over from Minnesota after sheer brilliance from the offensive staff there. That’s not to say Keenum can’t perform well again—but his 22 touchdowns still don’t jump off the stat sheet.
Despite receiving weapons such as Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, not to mention 2018 rookie steals Courtland Sutton and Daesean Hamilton, the Broncos are once again banking on an elite defensive performance.
Cooper Kupp led the team in receiving with 869 yards and had five touchdowns. Brandin Cooks will join him after one year with the New England Patriots where he caught seven touchdowns, giving him seven in three consecutive seasons.
The Rams do what they want on offense thanks to supreme balance and scheming, which won’t change anytime soon—especially not with the huge boost to the wideout corps.
The hope seems to be a Frank Gore-Kenyan Drake combo can prop up Tannehill, a career 62.7 percent passer with 106 touchdowns, 66 interceptions and seven yards per pass. But the addition of offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains isn’t encouraging. He left Chicago after an impressionable rookie, Mitchell Trubisky, started taking snaps under center in his miserably conservative offense, and Miami’s depth chart is even worse.
Like the Bills, defense will carry the Dolphins in 2018.
The Kansas City Chiefs got risky, promoting Eric Bieniemy to offensive coordinator from running backs coach right as they waved goodbye to the Alex Smith era after his career year.
Luckily, the Chiefs have Patrick Mahomes.
Last year’s No. 10 pick had an encouraging performance during a Week 17 win over the Broncos, lending credibility to the idea he’ll do fine as a sophomore quarterback.
It helps that the Chiefs have Kareem Hunt, last year’s 1,327-yard runner Cheap Goalie Jerseys who had eight touchdowns on a 4.9-per-carry average. Also returning are Hill and Cheap Full Dye Softball Jerseys Kelce, reliable targets who one year ago both hit the 1,000-yard mark while combining for 16 touchdowns.
