The equipment truck hasn't even left Fenway for Fort Myers and yet I'm looking at next season's PAT's opponents.
Home: Buffalo, Miami, NY Jets, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Denver, New Orleans, Tampa Bay
Away: Buffalo, Miami, NY Jets, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Houston, Atlanta, Carolina
I don't see divisional rivals as posing much of a threat, although Miami with a ton of cap space may improve.
The return of Sean Payton bodes well for the Saints but they may still be "hungover".
Steelers on the decline.
Cleveland and Tampa still not there for primetime.
Ravens without Lewis and Reed will revert to "middle-of-the-pack". Flacco still not elite.
Cincinnati and Houston with individual star-studded-talent lack cohesion.
Atlanta represents a real threat in Georgia Dome.
Carolina has a long ways to go.
I'm sensing a 15-1 season with a Super Bowl trophy.
