1. Baltimore Ravens - Defending their Super Bowl title got much harder with the likely season-ending injury to blossoming tight end Dennis Pitta.
2. San Francisco 49ers - Chris Culliver tore his ACL, marking the second significant injury suffered by the 49ers following the Super Bowl.
3. Denver Broncos - Von Miller's suspension and Dan Koppen's season-ending injury is not the way to kick off a run at the Super Bowl.
4. Seattle Seahawks - Percy Harvin's hip injury is a big disappointment, but is it at all surprising? The guy is always hurt.
5. New England Patriots - The Aaron Hernandez story gets more bizarre by the day, and the uncertain status of Rob Gronkowski is just more reason to be concerned with the Patriots offense heading into the season.
6. Green Bay Packers - The Packers had a hard time protecting Aaron Rodgers last year, and now they have to do it without talented tackle Bryan Bulaga after he tore his ACL.
7. Atlanta Falcons - The Falcons will be better with Steven Jackson running the ball, but the offensive line is still the real issue.
8. Houston Texans - Arian Foster is supposedly healthy, but I'm skeptical of any running back that sits out of the entire preseason with an injury.
9. New York Giants - Can David Wilson and Andre Brown shoulder the load over a 16-game season?
10. New Orleans Saints - The Saints have been impressed with Mark Ingram in the preseason and want to feature the run more in 2013.
11. Chicago Bears - The new Bears offense looks like it could really help Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte.
12. Cincinnati Bengals - There is a lot of pressure and expectations on Cincinnati this year. Can they finally beat winning teams on a consistent basis?
13. Minnesota Vikings - The Vikings have some nice players, but I still have a hard time seeing Christian Ponder as anything more than a game manager.
14. Indianapolis Colts - A lot of people are expecting the Colts to take a step back this year, and I understand they were quite lucky last year, but I expect them to really push the Texans in the AFC South.
15. Washington Redskins - RGIII will play Week 1, which has Redskins fans thinking back-to-back NFC East titles.
16. Dallas Cowboys - Call it a hunch, but I think Tony Romo is set for a big season.
17. Pittsburgh Steelers - The Steelers offensive line was in disarray in the preseason and they managed to lose rookie running back Le'Veon Bell to the dreaded Lisfranc injury.
18. St. Louis Rams - The Rams could be a playoff team in any other division, but the NFC West is just too tough.
19. Detroit Lions - It's time for Matthew Stafford to live up to his new big contract, and not just by throwing touchdown passes in garbage time to pad his stats.
20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - The infection that Carl Nicks is dealing with hurts, but the Bucs had to play without him last year.
21. Miami Dolphins - The coaching staff has been disappointed in Mike Wallace so far, which is part of the reason why Pittsburgh didn't pursue him in free agency.
22. Carolina Panthers - It's only the preseason, but Carolina's defense looks much improved.
23. Kansas City Chiefs - While the Broncos are king of the AFC West, the Chiefs should be the second best team and it's not really close.
24. Cleveland Browns - The Browns looked much better than expected offensively throughout the preseason, particularly Brandon Weeden.
25. Tennessee Titans - Chris Johnson seems hopeful that a revamped line and emphasis on the running game will get him back to his old numbers.
26. Buffalo Bills - E.J. Manuel's knee injury is a small setback for a team that got off to an impressive start in the preseason.
27. San Diego Chargers - It's just the preseason, but Philip Rivers has no protection and few legitimate receiving options.
28. Philadelphia Eagles - Between Jeremy Maclin's season-ending injury and Riley Cooper's stupid comments, it wasn't a great training camp in Philly.
29. Arizona Cardinals - Carson Palmer looks like he will finally get Larry Fitzgerald back to being one of the top wideouts in the league.
30. New York Jets - The injury to Mark Sanchez lead many to attack Rex Ryan, with some going so far as to suggest he should be fired.
31. Jacksonville Jaguars - Blaine Gabbert was named the starting quarterback, and rightfully so. The Jags need to find out if he has what it takes to become their franchise quarterback.
32. Oakland Raiders - A key injury on the offensive line is just going to add to the misery in Oakland.
