What better time to do a preview of the 2013 season than two days before it actually kicks off? If you’re anything like me, you cannot wait for the real season to get here. Thursday provides the first taste with the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens back in Denver to face Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.
Not a bad start, but of course Dallas Cowboys fans cannot wait for Sunday Night Football when they get their first crack at Peyton’s little brother and the hated New York Giants. I will have more to come about this particular game later in the week but now, here is one man’s look at how each team and each division will look when the dust settles three days before 2014 starts.
I really like the Cowboys in the East this year. The only question remains the health and continuity of the offensive line. This offense can be special and the defense seems to be ready to provide the much-needed assistance. Washington overachieved in 2012 and the change from facing a last place schedule last year to a first place schedule will result in less wins. The Giants are getting old, already injured in key spots and have done nothing to address their woeful pass defense in a pass happy league. Philadelphia may be exciting offensively but will be one of the five worst defensive teams in the league.
