We have arrived at the halfway point of the NFL season. Here’s a brief rundown of who are contenders, outsiders and are planning for next season.
Another Case Of Deja Vu
1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
There is no reason to think that with all 22 starters returning from last years Super Bowl that they won’t at least get to the Conference title game.
2. New Orleans Saints
QB Drew Brees has retired and the torch has been passed to Jameis Winston. This will be an interesting team to watch.
3. Carolina Panthers
They still have a ways to go, but trading for QB Sam Darnold was a good move. Low risk and high reward.
4. Atlanta Falcons
The belief is that QB Matt Ryan can still help this team for a couple more years, which is why they drafted TE Kyle Pitts instead of a quarterback. That could come back to haunt them.
