10. Indianapolis Colts- The Colts had a magical season which ended with a playoff appearance in Andrew Luck’s first season.  Luck’s potential is unlimited and so is the Colts. The question is will they realize their potential in 2013.

9.  Cincinnati Bengals- The Bengals are the Bears Week #1 opponent and it will be a great test.  The Bengals core is entering their third season with two quick playoff appearances under their belts. Andy Dalton needs to make another huge step in 2013.

8. Denver Broncos- They should easily win the division, will Peyton Manning be able win an outdoor playoff game?

7. New Orleans Saints- The Saints have question marks on defense, but when facing the Saints you know  going in to the game that you will have to put up more than 24 points to win so that pressure is too much for some teams to handle on a weekly basis.

6. Atlanta Falcons- A great regular season team that continues to fall short in the playoffs.  In likely Tony Gonzalez last season with the Falcons will Matt Ryan and company step up in January?

5. Green Bay Packers- The question in Green Bay will be can the Packers offensive line keep Rodgers upright long enough for the best quarterback in the league to do his thing.

4. Baltimore Ravens- Losing their heart and soul Ray Lewis will be bigger loss come December than anyone will want to believe. Flacco got his payday will he continue to play at a high level.

3. Houston Texans- This is the year for Matt Schaub, Arian Foster, and Andre Johnson to make a Super Bowl run. The Texans defense led by JJ Watt will be the real reason for a deep run.

2. San Francisco 49ers- They were so close to a title yet so far. With everything looking good for the 49ers they lose Michael Crabtree for more than likely the entire season.  Harbaugh is a great coach and this loss will not keep them from the playoffs and a possible return to the Super Bowl.

1. Seattle Seahawks- The Seahawks made a big move by acquiring Percy Harvin, but they will be without his services  for the beginning of the season.  No worries they have tons of talent on both sides of the ball.  Pete Carroll is usually better as an underdog so it will be fun to see how he handles high expectations.

    Worst article ever. Bad rankings. Bad spelling. No # 27 and no Denver broncos on the list.

    I’m glad you think so poorly of the Chiefs. It will make laughing at you easier when we do better than 25th.

    Pats at 17 is a joke. They may take a few games to get in tune but they have more speed and size at receiver position, and Brady is Brady. Their defense is playing better and has a few upgrades as well. This team will easily win AFC East and even if they lose everyone of their tough games should be 11-5. Tell me how 11-5 or even 10-6 is 17th. My guess is they are in Superbowl, but will have tough time against a good NFC opponent. Really New Orleans at 7 explain to me how NO is 7 and Pats 17. NO has 3 times worse defense
