13. Chicago Bears

Most pieces are in place, but their ultimate success hinges on Jay Cutler and how well the offensive line plays.

MVP: Matt Forte

14. New York Giants

Need a RB to step up. Defense a question, but still have championship pedigree.

MVP: Eli Manning

15. Minnesota Vikings

The offense has the weapons to compete. Now, Christian Ponder needs to step up his game, but with Adrian Peterson, how can you doubt them as a threat.

MVP: Adrian Peterson

16. Miami Dolphins

Could emerge as another wild card team. Tannehill and the run game the deciding factor.

MVP: Dion Jordan

17. Dallas Cowboys

With a shaky o-line, secondary and run game, I’m not convinced that Dez Bryant can carry the whole offense while the defense transitions into a 4-3 scheme.

MVP: DeMarcus Ware

18. St. Louis Rams

Young and exciting. Tavon Austin could lift this team to an improved status.

MVP: Tavon Austin
