Six NFL Teams That Will Have My Full Attention

The NFL is back! A sentence that a few months ago, I wouldn’t have thought that I would be writing come September. But the NFL is back and here to stay. And despite no pre-season games, week one is already upon us and the point spreads for the first week of the NFL are out. I have six teams below that not only would I place my money on them to win the division, but I would place some money on them to win it all. The 2020 NFL season has started. Are you ready for some football?!

Tennesee Titans:
The Titans made it to their first AFC Championship game in 17 years last season, and they’re bringing back a better, more experienced team. In a weird year with no preseason, experience and chemistry are going to be key. And that’s just what this team has. Led quarterback, Ryan Tannehill, and his backfield mate, Derrick Henry this team is poised for a Super Bowl run. They have Corey Davis in a contract year and a young star-studded receiver in A.J. Brown.

Yes, they suffered some losses losing Jurrell Casey, Logan Ryan, and Tajae Sharpe. But they added some key pieces like Jonathan Joseph, Stephen Gostkowski, and Jadeveon Clowney. This Titans team will dominate the AFC this year with its stout defense and very undercover offense.

Indianapolis Colts:
Yes, I’m staying in the AFC South with the Colts here. I know what you’re thinking, “Mike, you’re crazy.” But I’m not. They have a great defense, the best offensive line in the NFL with a great group of young running backs, one of the best wide receivers in the game in T.Y. Hilton, and a proven quarterback in Phillip Rivers who can win in big games.

Hilton and Rivers are already developing a great relationship and building great chemistry, which is bad news for opposing defenses. He called Hilton and himself a “perfect match.” Combine that with a stellar defense and all day to pass with their offensive line, how could you not love the Colts?

Pittsburgh Steelers:
This team is probably playing with the biggest chip on their shoulders and I can’t blame them. The talk of their division is Lamar Jackson and Joe Burrow, yet they still have the best quarterback in that division in Ben Roethlisberger. Listen, I’m not saying Jackson isn’t elite and that Burrow isn’t a promising, young rookie. But Roethlisberger led the NFL in passing yards in 2018 and was top 5 in passing touchdowns that year as well. He doesn’t have Antonio Brown anymore but JuJu Smith-Schuster, Eric Ebron, Dioante Johnson, and James Washington will do just fine. Lets not also forget that the Steelers had a top-five defense last year with quarterbacks that struggled to move the football.

New England Patriots:
What did they really lose? Let’s be honest they were carried by their defense last year and they’re all back and they’ll be dominant yet again this year. Yes, they lost Tom Brady, but trust me it’ll be a blessing in disguise this year. Cam Newton needed a fresh start and name a better place to do it than New England with Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels? Watch out as the Patriots will cruise to an AFC East Title and will set themselves up for a deep playoff run.

San Francisco 49ers:
Let’s not overthink this one here. They made it to the Super Bowl against one of the best offenses of all-time led by a mastermind head coach and one of the most accurate gunslingers in Patrick Mahomes. But the 49ers are going to remain one of the league’s best teams. They don’t have a problem at quarterback and if you truly believe so then go back and look at his previous games because he’s 21-5 as a starter. That doesn’t seem like a problem to me. They have a great running back group, young promising wide receivers, and a phenomenal tight end. Do not sleep on this 49ers team again this year.

Dallas Cowboys:
This will be the most interesting team to watch this year (Realistically when is it not) as not only are they America’s team, but they finally have a new head coach. They’ve revamped their defense even more with the additions of Gerald McCoy, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Dontari Poe, Aldon Smith, Daryl Worley, and Everson Griffin. But also, guess who’s back? Randy Gregory. Gregory was conditionally reinstated by the NFL and as a result signed a one-year extension with the Cowboys.

They bring back their three-headed monster in Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, and Amari Cooper. Not to mention Michael Gallup and Ceedee Lamb as well. This Cowboys team has everything they need to make it to a Super Bowl this year and at the very least an NFC Title game.
