1. Cleveland Browns
They made lots of headway last year and now they are expected to take this division and run with it.
2. Baltimore Ravens
QB Lamar Jackson has accomplished a lot during the regular season. Now it’s time for a sustained playoff run.
3. Pittsburgh Steelers
The defense will have to carry this team again. Especially with a weak offensive line in front of Big Ben.
4. Cincinnati Bengals
They made steps to protect QB Joe Burrow, but they might regret not taking the best tackle in the 1st Round.
