The 2017 NFL season was full of surprises. There were seven new teams that made the playoffs in 2017 that didn’t make it the year prior. Quite a few teams exceeded expectations, and other teams fell short. Does anyone remember that the Jaguars were 3-13 the year before their run to the AFC Championship? Or that the Eagles finished last in the NFC East, with a 7-9 record, in 2016?

In one off-season, a lot can change. Some changes will prove to be for the better, and such moves could catapult a team into the postseason. Here is a list of 8 NFL teams ready to make the playoffs in 2018.

1. New York Giants (2017 Record: 3-13)

Key Additions: RB Saquon Barkley, LT Nate Solder, MLB Alec Ogletree, OG Will Hernandez, HC Pat Shurmur  

The New York Giants have had arguably the best off-season in the entire NFL. The team underwent major changes, and made a lot of tremendous additions throughout the process. The Giants are just one year removed from a playoff appearance, and this team is way more talented then their 3-13 record suggests. New York not only added solid talent, but also upgraded their coaching staff. From top-to-bottom, there is a culture change happening in East Rutherford. The Giants have a legitimate shot to compete for a playoff spot, and don’t be surprised if this team shatters expectations. The Giants’ offense is loaded with talent, and their defense will be much improved with new DC James Bettcher. I expect Eli Manning to have a career year in 2018, and with Pat Shurmur at the helm this team has sky-high potential.
