Default Who will be this years surprise team?

I chose Cincinnati. Now that Palmer has another year of experience and is surrounded by offensive weapons, all they need is a defensive effort to put them in the playoffs.

That being said the Texans could surprise some around the league. But that wouldn't be a surprise to me.

Who is your pick??

I'll go with the Chiefs. I believe they upgraded on defense and their offense was very good anyway so that's my choice.

Im gonna say Jacksonville ..... as much as I hate to admit it they are a much improved .

They had a very good defense last season and it should only get better .
A Solid running game with Fred Taylor as long as he can stay healthy .
Their O-line is pretty solid
Two very capable QB's in Byron Leftwich and David Garrard .
Those QB's have some good talent on the outside to work with in Jimmy Smith , Reggie Williams and first round draft choice Matt Jones . Jones is going to contribute in a big way .
And did I mention their defense ? .....in particular the front four .

As shown by the Dolts the past few season you can win in the regular season with a great offense and a poor defense . But when the play-offs roll around the game changes ..... Defense wins Champoinships . They may not win the division but i see them making the play-offs and being a force .

IMO they are not going to be able to win in this division so I would not pick them. My prediction is the most they can do in this division is 3-3

Arizona, but is that really a surprise since a lot of people think they can win that division???

My AFC pick is the Bills, but that really isnt a surprise either if they make it...
