The NFL regular season kicks off in just two days. And before the opener, it’s time to take stock of the league once again.
It’s always difficult to do NFL power rankings before the season starts. All that we have to go off of is last year’s results, which are now vastly outdated, and paper rosters, which always look better than they end up performing. But nonetheless, it’s fun to take a look at the league landscape and take a stab at which teams could be surprise contenders.
The Washington Redskins are a tough team to gauge right now. On paper, the Redskins seem like they should have a strong defense and a decent offense. However, their offense wasn’t able to move the ball at all during the preseason. And while it is just the preseason, their inability to score certainly was a red flag.
In addition to the Redskins, there are some other teams that are hard to predict. Holdouts, injuries, and surprise retirements have dominated the storylines over the course of the past month.
