8. Kansas City Chiefs

Andy Reid’s squad will once again give Denver a run for their money with help from the arrivals of wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, safety Tyvon Branch, and rookie cornerback Marcus Peters, the Chiefs also have the return of the secondary’s top player Eric Berry to help their defense continue to be as shut down as it has in the last few years.

Also, I can’t fail to mention the NFL’s top running back Jamaal Charles in the backfield who will continue to be the best weapon on Reid’s offense. Kansas City should be able to squeeze their way into the playoffs.

7. Miami Dolphins

Could too much change mean troubling times are ahead of the Dolphins? Doubtful. Fourth year quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been better and better every year, and that should continue with the arrival of wide receivers Kenny Stills, Greg Jennings, and rookie DeVante Parker, along with tight end Jordan Cameron.

Jarvis Landry will continue to lead the team in receptions and will hopefully provide a leadership role on a rearranged receiving squad. Brent Grimes will continue to be able to shut down receivers, and the arrival of Ndamukong Suh will elevate the play of an already solid defensive line.
