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
