New Orleans Saints (10-6): After dealing Jimmy Graham to the Seahawks, are the Saints doomed? Well not really, I don't see them being a stellar playoff team the fact of the matter is they are still in one of the weakest divisions in all of the NFL. They don't lose as many games at home this year and with a easy schedule, record wise, this team "bounces back"
Atlanta Falcons (7-9): The Falcons have a new sheriff in town, Dan Quinn. He looks to improve the defense, and did so in this years draft with guys like LB Vic Beasley. It may take a few years for the rookies to take hold and Quinn to get the defense the way he wants it, but I think the Falcons are a team on the rise just give it a few years.
Carolina Panthers (6-10): There was a lot of optimism going into this season after a strong December last season propelling them into the postseason despite finishing 7-8-1. Well now the team is scrambling after losing WR Kelvin Benjamin for the season and the hold out of LB Luke Kuechly, this team will once again struggle.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-11): The Buccs, with 1st overall pick Winston, look to bounce back after a dismal 2014 season. They will look like a better team than last season however with them playing a big chunk of road games to start the season, they will get off on the wrong foot and Winston isn't that NFL ready to bounce this team around overnight.
