Houston Texans 2018 Team Preview and Prediction

Healthy stars will be key for Texans
Houston Texans 2018 Team Preview and Prediction

In Brian Gaine’s first offseason as GM, he signed nine free agents and added eight draft choices to a team that was destroyed by injuries in coach Bill O’Brien’s fourth season. Twenty players, including 13 starters, were placed on injured reserve, including rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson. The result was a 4-12 record -- O’Brien’s first losing season -- and a demotion to the AFC South basement after back-to-back titles.

 

Tennessee Titans 2018 Team Preview and Prediction

New coach, but playoff core remains
Tennessee Titans 2018 Team Preview and Prediction

The 20th season of the Tennessee Titans will be celebrated with a rebranding. The Titans will don new helmets and uniforms on the field and welcome first-year head coach Mike Vrabel on the sideline. Vrabel, 42, was an NFL linebacker from 1997-2010, winning three Super Bowls with the New England Patriots before coaching under Urban Meyer at Ohio State and Bill Belichick disciple Bill O’Brien with the Houston Texans, most recently serving as defensive coordinator in 2017.

 

Jacksonville Jaguars 2018 Team Preview and Prediction

Expectations rise for young Jags
Jacksonville Jaguars 2018 Team Preview and Prediction

Now comes the tough part for the Jaguars: prosperity and expectations. That is the new territory for the previously downtrodden franchise. Following a decade filled with coaching and front-office changes, quarterback instability and, most of all, losing, the Jaguars improved last year by seven wins and reached the AFC Championship Game. All of which meant nothing this spring when coach Doug Marrone addressed his players. Every team has the same record. Every team is starting over. Last year’s foundation must be built upon, not admired.

 

Cleveland Browns 2018 Team Preview and Prediction

Nowhere to go but up for Browns
Cleveland Browns 2018 Team Preview and Prediction

The Browns bottomed out last season, following up a 1-15 season by going winless. They kept Hue Jackson as head coach but put John Dorsey in charge of personnel last December, and there will be greater than 50 percent roster turnover by the time the season begins.

 

Pittsburgh Steelers 2018 Team Preview and Prediction

New season, same faces in Steel City
Pittsburgh Steelers 2018 Team Preview and Prediction

Pittsburgh was too good, too electric on offense, too experienced where it matters, to have its 2017 season end prematurely at the hands up the upstart Jaguars in the AFC divisional round. Their long-anticipated rematch with the Patriots never materialized, and the Steelers were sent into an offseason with plenty to mull. Months later, the roster is barely changed, and neither have the expectations. There’s no telling how much longer their vaunted triple-B trio will be together, but the Steelers expect to be nothing less than Super Bowl contenders in 2018.

 

Cincinnati Bengals 2018 Team Preview and Prediction

Bengals have stability, but will it lead to wins?
Cincinnati Bengals 2018 Team Preview and Prediction

Major change appeared imminent as the losses piled up during a disappointing 2017 campaign. Instead, Cincinnati is banking on the same key figures who led it to five consecutive playoff appearances and two AFC North crowns during the first half of the decade.

 

Baltimore Ravens 2018 Team Preview and Prediction

Ravens overhaul offense, but will it be enough?
Baltimore Ravens 2018 Team Preview and Prediction

One of the NFL’s most stable organizations is suddenly in transition. Ozzie Newsome, the team’s only general manager since it arrived in Baltimore in 1996, will step aside following the 2018 season for his longtime lieutenant, Eric DeCosta. Owner Steve Bisciotti acknowledged that he considered firing coach John Harbaugh after the team missed the playoffs last year, creating the perception that the Ravens have to go to the postseason this year to save Harbaugh’s job.
