Which NFL Team Will Be Most Improved in 2014?
Last season in the NFL, we saw some pretty ugly football at times. Some teams thrived at points, but a few teams, who all ended with pretty awful records, are now looking to turn things around in 2014 and become the most improved team. There are a few teams who come to mind when you think about who may win the award for “most improved” in 2014. While there are definitely a few teams who come to mind, I see one or two who are likely to be the ones to win this honor.
A few teams to consider (including 2013 record) feature the Washington Redskins (3-13), Atlanta Falcons (4-12), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-12) and Houston Texans (2-14). Right out of the gate, you have to assume that both the Redskins and Texans are the two teams who have the best chance, but I don’t believe that the Texans will take it thanks to an iffy quarterback situation.
This leaves three, and while the Falcons are a popular pick to get back to the postseason and possibly even to contend to win their division, I’m completely on board with it. They had a rough outing in 2013, and while I do believe that all four of these teams will be much improved, especially the Bucs and Redskins, I think the Falcons will get back to that level that we’re used to seeing them play at.
With Julio Jones back at 100 percent, the Falcons will have a ton of targets, and a lot of anger after that tough season they suffered last year, which featured multiple close losses that came down to the end. If we’re looking for a second-place winner, I’m calling it a tie between the Buccaneers and Redskins, as I think both of these teams are going to take massive steps forward as well.
I’m not only expecting to see the Falcons improve, but I expect to see them in the postseason as well, and I can’t say the same about any of the other three teams.
