8 NFL teams ready to break into the playoffs in 2018


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.
