Every playoff-caliber team in the NFL will enter this season with a championship-or-bust mindset, but not every single one is going to be able to live up to those expectations.
With the regular season on the horizon, Kristopher Knox of Bleacher Report revealed which two teams he believes will “flop” this upcoming season.
The Dallas Cowboys are the first team to crack Knox’s list. He’s just not sure the team can compete in the NFC if Prescott isn’t playing at an elite level.
“If Prescott cannot carry the Cowboys, they could be in serious trouble,” Knox wrote, via Bleacher Report. “Their defense ranked 28th in points allowed last season, and there are lingering questions about head coach Mike McCarthy and his staff.”
The Cowboys aren’t the only NFC team that Knox is worried about this year. It turns out he’s not very confident in the New Orleans Saints, either.
New Orleans is entering a new era, as the days of Drew Brees leading the franchise are officially over. Brees isn’t the only important member missing from this year’s squad, though.
“The Saints will also be without No. 1 receiver Michael Thomas for a large chunk of the early season following June ankle surgery,” Knox said. “The Saints also lost a bevy of notable contributors this offseason, including Trey Hendrickson, Janoris Jenkins, Emmanuel Sanders, Jared Cook and Sheldon Rankins. In short, we aren’t going to see the same Saints squad that went 12-4 a year ago.”
It also doesn’t help that New Orleans is in the same division as Tampa Bay. Somehow, the defending champions retained all their key free agents this offseason.
Do you believe the Cowboys and Saints are going to “flop” this fall?
