Rex Ryan simply isn't a great head coach. He's a fantastic defensive coordinator, but not cut out for leading a 53-man roster. Expect a rift to develop between Ryan and QB Tyrod Taylor that ultimately ruins Buffalo's season.

Perhaps Robert Griffin III will save his career with a solid season in 2016, but there's simply no way Cleveland will even sniff the playoffs next winter. Expect seven wins at the most from the Browns.
