Which NFL Team Could Shock the World?

Year after year, there is always one team that goes much farther than everyone expects. Take the Texans from last year as an example, they picked QB CJ Stroud 2nd overall, which turned out to be a massive success leading to a divisional round appearance. With this certain class being incredible, let’s take a look at a few teams who can follow this model and surpass expectations.

Cleveland Browns

The Browns have spent a fortune to go get their guy in Deshaun Watson, and so far it hasn’t worked out. For now there is still hope, Watson has no better chance than now to rekindle the 2018 flame he had when he led the Texans to the divisional round.

The pressure is on for Watson but with that 1st ranked defense (270.2 YPG) and a healthy Nick Chubb, the turnaround in Cleveland could definitely happen.

New Orleans Saints

Maybe the most likely scenario listed, the Saints have all the pieces to make a run. After firing OC Pete Carmichael Jr. and making a complete overhaul of their offensive staff firing multiple position group coaches and even some advisors the message seems to have been made clear in New Orleans. Not enough offense.

The hiring of former 49ers passing game specialist, Klint Kubiak could provide the spark the Saints have needed badly for the past few years. In terms of the defense, Marshon Lattimore’s potential departure could be something to keep an eye on. If all goes right New Orleans could seriously make a run.

Indianapolis Colts

Indianapolis has been a very under the radar team the past few years. But for a few weeks at the start of last year, everyone was paying attention. Anthony Richardson was shocking the world with his insane running ability and absolute cannon of an arm. Cam Newton comparisons were circulating and everything seemed trending upwards.

Then Richardson had season-ending shoulder surgery and just as fast as Indianapolis’ spark came, it left. With the draft coming up in a few weeks a new WR to pair with Michael Pittman Jr. would be a luxury for Richardson and potentially a deciding factor in the Colts’ season.
