Dallas Cowboys

As we learned in 2015, the Cowboys success (or lack thereof) hinges on the health of quarterback Tony Romo. If he is healthy and stays healthy, this team could be special in 2016. If not, the Cowboys could end up picking in the top-10 in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Washington Redskins

The Redskins surprised everyone on their way to winning the 2015 NFC East title. After their impressive offseason, they should be even better in 2016. As we previously mentioned, the NFC East will be wide open this year, but this time around the Redskins won’t sneak up on their opponents.

The Steelers may have the best offense in the league, which should be enough to keep them in every game they play this season. If their defense comes together, this could be a Super Bowl-caliber team.

Most people are worried about the Broncos’ quarterback situation, but in reality, their quarterback play in 2015 was nothing short of disastrous and that wasn’t even enough to keep them from winning the Super Bowl. Despite losing Malik Jackson and Danny Trevathan, the Broncos should have one of the best defenses in the game again. As they proved last year, it is all they need to compete for a world championship.
