NFL: TURNAROUND TEAMS

By Marc Lawrence — NFL.com asked five of its leading analysts which each of the 32 teams heading into the COVID-induced season in quest of finding which team will enjoy the biggest turnaround in 2020. While the reigning Super Bowl champion Chiefs look to build a dynasty, there are plenty of NFL franchises seeking to rebound from a disappointing 2019 season. Eight teams finished with five or fewer wins last season: the Bengals, Cardinals, Chargers, Dolphins, Giants, Lions, Panthers and Washington. Eight other teams finished with records below .500: the Broncos, Browns, Buccaneers, Colts, Falcons, Jaguars, Jets and Raiders. Surprisingly each of the five chose a different team, including Arizona, Cleveland, LA Chargers, Tampa Bay, and the Washington Football Team.
