AFCS tough next year? Why exactly? Because Tennessee kept that crap staff? Because the Jags did . . . ? Because the Colts O-line is now not a train wreck? Nothing has really changed yet in this infantile offseason, wait until after the draft and then get back to me about how tough this schedule is. LOL worrying about an 8-8 Steelers team that's about to lose Mike Wallace.
We can only go off our expectation of teams right now. I fully expect the Broncos, Patriots, Ravens, Seahawks and 49ers to be in playoff contention next year. Does that guarantee it? No. Can the Super Bowl teams from this year fail expectations next year? Certainly. However, all five games I mentioned look to be tough match-ups right now.
The only reason I mentioned the Rams is I've seen a couple people mention them as a team could surprise people next year.
