– Kansas City Chiefs
– New York Giants
– Original thoughts coach to be fired: Minnesota Vikings +1500, Mike Zimmer
The Chiefs defense obtained season to a tiny bad rap. Kansas City gave up a ton of yards, but it was difficult not to if the crime puts up 21 from the first quarter, and this is something which seemed to happen on a regular basis.
As Kansas City will go out of a new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo brings a fresh twist. Head coach Andy Reid should feel much better about his shield though his has been a fingertip from winning the AFC this past 27, offside call.
On offense, quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the remainder of the Chiefs were so successful a season ago, leading the NFL in points a game and total yards with nearly 7,000 with 35. Wide receiver Tyreek Hill has been cleared to play, which should make Kansas City come close to putting up similar numbers.
Running back Damien Williams along with a cast of other people will share time at the backfield, which could be much better overall than having single threat Kareem Hunt (currently a Cleveland Brown) inside there.
Because Rob Gronkowski of this Patriots retired, Travis Kelce now becomes the best tight end from the AFC, and mahomes Has Lots of weapons and in the NFL. This past year, Both hooked up on passes of 20 yards or more 18 days. That was yet another time than Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to put that statistic into perspective.
Kansas City has the exact players coming from??one of the greatest units in the league. If the shield is marginally better and Mahomes is still what we think he is, Kansas City could be better than last year’s team.
Prediction: AFC Championship Game: Chiefs 38, Patriots 35
Each NFC East team going into the 2019 season has troubles that are outlying. The Cowboys had the difficulty however the Ohio State product put those questions by inking an extention.
The Redskins has more stress on them and have quarterback issues. With this said, why don’t you have a flyer.
The Giants were not as bad last year as critics left them out to function since they dropped five lost eight games by three points or not. The defense suspended in a great deal of games but might need to be much better since teams just couldn’t stop in games.
Two-time Super Bowl champ Eli Manning will have players such as Offensive Rookie offense around him.
The Giants signed veteran receiver Golden Tate (frozen for initial four matches ) and have probably the most important piece to the crime since the offseason exchange of Odell Beckham Jr. at Sterling Shepard.
This really is the opportunity for Manning to generate amounts Shepard to spread his wings allow him. It’s Shepard who needs to have a period to allow the Giants offense although barkley will certainly receive his lawns.
New York has more than a couple of games against teams that were last season such as Buffalo, the Jets, Detroit??and Tampa Bay.
It will be interesting to observe how much confidence coach Pat Shurmur will possess in Manning. As he had 10 touchdown passes than interceptions he got a terrible rap last season. In fact the plus/minus ratio within the past five seasons of Eli is.
Eli can still get the offensive line which has been the primary issue for them is supposed to function better and things done. If Manning has enough time to throw, points could be put up by the Giants and challenge late in games. This branch is overrated and is fair so you are receiving excellent value on a group that is not as poor as touted.
– New York Giants 9-7
– Dallas Cowboys??8-8
– Philadelphia Eagles??8-8
– Washington Redskins??5-11
Minnesota signed quarterback Kirk Cousins to win big games and hired Mike Zimmer and that just has not been the outcome for either. There is a whole great deal of strain on the two as they are coming off an extremely unsatisfactory season that is 8-7-1.
Some??reductions sting a bit more than others because the Vikings lost in the home as a 17-point favorite to Buffalo by 21 points and when the chips were all on the table in Week 17 and a playoff berth at stake having a win, they stopped at home versus rival Chicago, who was already in the playoffs and had nothing to play for. Cousins and zimmer were a against playoff teams.
Since they re-signed tight end Kyle Rudolph, who is a red-zone magnet this group is filled with weapons. Running Dalvin Cook rear is back healthy and they have the duo of Diggs and also Thielen at wide receiver therefore there aren’t any explanations for the Vikings.
Minnesota has difficult road games in Seattle, Dallas, Kansas City and in Los Angeles versus the Chargers. Even the Vikings front office wasn’t scared to flame coordinator John DeFilippo year after only 13 games, and when the Vikings don’t get off to a fantastic start, it could be fewer??games than that for Zimmer.
