1. New Orleans Saints
The Saints would have gone to the Super Bowl if not for the officials botching a clear pass interference. Quarterback Drew Brees is not going to play many more seasons and he is coming off arguably his best season in his career.
New Orleans drafted offensive lineman Erik McCoy and defensive back Chauncey Gardner-Johnson. Both these rookies are starting caliber players and will help with depth. Running back Alvin Kamara, receiver Michael Thomas, and Brees is the best three-headed attack in the game.
With the expert coaching of the offensive-minded head coach Sean Payton, this offense is going to be a top-four offense in the league. The Saints’ Super Bowl window is closing as these words are being typed.
They are not going to have all these talented veteran players and coaches for long. New Orleans might be the most motivated team in the NFL. The Saints are the scariest team in the league and have a chip on their shoulder. Expect this team to win a lot of games and compete strongly in the playoffs.
