NFL Teams.

There are a lot of teams in the NFL looking to make a big leap this season. After a big draft and offseason, many fans think that this is their year to make a run at the playoffs. There are several teams that stick out when it comes to making an improvement on their record from last year. Many times in the NFL, an injury or two can make a huge difference in the overall win record. Here are a couple of teams that could make a big jump this year.

  • Cowboys
  • Jaguars
  • Titans

We will go into each of these teams in detail, but there are several key features that are the same on each of these teams. These three teams have young talent, suffered key injuries, and have a more favorable schedule this year. In addition, each team had a draft that was graded high by the experts.

Cowboys.

If you had to pick one team to have a better record this year than last, the Dallas Cowboys have to be at the top of the list.

Last year, they had a lot of injuries that cost them games. In addition, this team lost a lot of close games where the ball just did not bounce their way. In 2016, the Cowboys could easily double their win total of 4 from last year. This is a great example of how much parity there is in the NFL. With their star running back from the draft, the Cowboys should have a potent running game. These things need to go right in order for the Cowboys to have a better year.

Jaguars.

The Jaguars had the best offseason of any team in the NFL. Not only that, but they also get their highest draft pick from last year back from injury. Dante Fowler was a great player at the University of Florida, and many people expect him to make a big impact this year. They also got lucky when Jalen Ramsey fell to them in the draft. There are a lot of fans expecting the young talent to make a huge difference this year. Like the Titans, the Jaguars play in a bad conference and division with the AFC South. To win this year, the Jaguars need a couple things.

  • No Injuries to Key Players Like Last Year
  • Blake Bortles Continued Progression
  • Win the Games Against Bad Teams

Titans

The Titans are still two or three seasons away from competing at a high level in the NFL. However, they have one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL in Marcus Mariota. Over time, he has developed into one of the best players on the team. The Titans have to keep him healthy all year if they are to win six or seven games.

They had the worst record in the NFL last year, but traded their draft pick for more picks later in the draft. Only time will tell if this was a good move or not, but they did get a great tackle in Jack Conklin. The key for the Titans is simple; keep Marcus Mariota healthy all year and the win total will improve.
