– Kansas City Chiefs
– New York Giants to win the NFC East +1000
– Initial thoughts coach should be fired: Minnesota Vikings +1500, Mike Zimmer
The Chiefs defense obtained a bit of a rap that was bad season. Kansas City gave up a ton of yards, but it was difficult not to if the offense puts up 21 from the first quarter, which will be something that seemed to occur on a normal basis.
As Kansas City will go to a 4-3 22, new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo brings a fresh spin. Head coach Andy Reid must feel much better about his shield this effort though his was a fingertip away from winning the AFC last 27, offside call.
On offense, quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the rest of the Chiefs were so successful a season past, leading the NFL in points a game and total yards with almost 7,000 with 35. Wide receiver Tyreek Hill has been cleared to play with, which should alone make Kansas City come close to setting up comparable numbers.
Running back Damien Williams and a cast of others will talk about time at the backfield, which may be much better compared to having only danger Kareem Hunt (now a Cleveland Brown) inside there.
Mahomes has plenty of weapons, and Travis Kelce now becomes the greatest tight end in the AFC and possibly in the NFL since Rob Gronkowski of those Patriots retired. Both hooked up on passes of 20 yards??or more 18 days. To??put that statistic into perspective, that has been one time than Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Kansas City has the exact special-teams players returning from??one of the greatest units on the planet. Mahomes is what we think he is and if the defense is slightly better, Kansas City could be much better.
Prediction: AFC Championship Game: Chiefs 38, Patriots 35
Each NFC East team going into the 2019 season has outlying troubles. The Cowboys had the problem with Zeke Elliott threatening not to play unless he got a new contract, from inking an extention using the team on September 40, however the Ohio State merchandise set those questions to rest.
The Redskins have quarterback problems and nobody has more pressure on them to triumph compared to Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz. With that said, why not have a flyer about the New York Football Giants.
The Giants were not as bad annually as critics left them out to be since they lost five and lost eight games by seven points or less points or not. The defense suspended in a great deal of games but will need to be better since teams couldn’t stop late.
Two-time Super Bowl champ Eli Manning will have solid players such as Offensive Rookie offense around him.
The Giants signed veteran recipient Golden Tate (frozen for initial four games) and have probably the most important part to the offense since the offseason trade of Odell Beckham Jr. in Sterling Shepard.
This really is the prospect for Manning to create significant amounts in New York Shepard to spread his wings and hopefully allow him. It’s Shepard who wants to have a breakout season to permit the Giants offense to blossom although barkley will certainly receive his lawns.
New York has over just a few games against teams which were bad year like the Jets Buffalo, Detroit and Tampa Bay.
It’ll be intriguing to realize how much confidence head coach Pat Shurmur will possess in Manning. He??received a terrible rap last year as he had 10 more touchdown passes than interceptions. In reality Eli ratio over the previous five seasons is.
Eli can still get the offensive line that was the primary issue for them will function better and things done. If Manning gets time to throw, the Giants could put up points and battle in matches. This division is overrated and is extremely fair so on a team which is not as poor as touted you’re getting good value at 10-1.
– New York Giants 9-7
– Dallas Cowboys??8-8
– Philadelphia Eagles??8-8
– Washington Redskins??5-11
Minnesota signed up quarterback Kirk Cousins to win enormous games and hired Mike Zimmer and that hasn’t been the outcome for . There’s a lot of strain on both as they’re coming off an extremely disappointing season that is 8-7-1.
Some??losses sting a bit more than others since the Vikings lost at home as a 17-point preferred to Buffalo from 21 points and when the chips were all on the desk at Week 17 and a playoff berth at stake having a win, they choked at home versus rival Chicago, who was already in the playoffs and had nothing more to play for. Cousins and zimmer were also a against playoff teams.
This group is loaded with weapons since they end Kyle Rudolph, who’s a magnet that was red-zone. Running Dalvin Cook rear is back healthy and they have Diggs and Thielen’s duo at receiver so there aren’t any explanations for the Vikings.
Minnesota has road games the Chargers. The Vikings front office was not afraid to flame coordinator John DeFilippo year and it might be fewer games compared to Zimmer, when the Vikings don’t return to a great beginning.
