1. Texans (10-6)
Everyone is sleeping on the boys from Houston, I don't know why, they've proven they can win without a quarterback and now they might actually have one. Brock Osweiler is the ideal size any team wants their quarterback to be, his ability to make throws is just as desirable. He's a young QB in a new system so obviously I expect a few slip up's here and there. The defense will be even better than last year, that'll help take pressure off a young offense that hasn't had much time to work together. They have a good running back in Lamar Miller, Osweiler might be inexperienced but has proven he can beat even the most elite QB's in the league, and the young receiving core they have here is easily one of the best in the league. Oh yeah, they also have the best defensive player in the league as well, this team could make some serious noise this season.
2. Jaguars (9-7)
This offense could very well end up being one of the very best in the league. They have Blake Bortles under center who has clearly proven he can effectively throw all over many defenses in this league. Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson will be proving this season that they're a top 5 wide receiver tandem in this league. The offense will be top 10 no doubt about it, what concerns me is the defense. The defense has all the potential in the world don't get me wrong, the youth is what concerns me with them. They have three huge key players that are going to be making their first start in the NFL come week one. I don't care how good you're supposed to be, what matters is what these guys produce, and about 99% of rookies don't have pro bowl caliber play in them yet. It's totally normal, they're rookies obviously they're going to make mistakes, it's all part of the learning process. I think the Jags are a year away from a playoff berth, but within the next few years this team could be very special.
3. Colts (8-8)
Andrew Luck is back and healthy for the Colts, this has many people overzealous about the direction this season is going to go for them. I understand Andrew Luck is one of the best quarterbacks in the game today, what I don't see is why all you people are so high on the Colts and think that QB is the only position that matters. The defense is probably one of the worst I've ever seen on paper, the running game doesn't exist, and the offensive line is pedestrian at best. Andrew Luck will have a great season statistically, but the lack of talent he has around him will make them an average team.
4. Titans (5-11)
This is a very young team that is on the rise. They finally have an actual football coach, not some joke like Mike Mularkey, and they have loaded up on some serious talent through the draft. Mariota has shown he can be a very sufficient QB in this league, the combination of Demarco Murray and Derrick Henry will ensure he has a great running game to lean on. The defense and offensive line aren't quite there yet, that's why I think this will be just another year of development for the Titans.
