With the NFL preseason schedule winding down, every fan is anxiously awaiting the start of the 2014 regular season. The NFC seems to be a stronger conference overall than the AFC, as it is an extremely tough group to predict. Here are my top five teams heading into 2014.

People probably think they can be as high as No. 2, but with an aging roster combined with an injury to NaVorro Bowman, San Fran holds down this spot.

I wanted to slide the Eagles up a spot higher, but with their young roster plus a few uncertainties, they are at No. 4 to start the season.

Jairus Byrd should help their defense, and with Drew Brees and Sean Payton leading the charge, New Orleans always has a chance to make a deep playoff run.
