The Los Angeles Rams won a Super Bowl just two NFL seasons ago. Since then they have lost hall-of-famers to the likes of defensive tackle Aaron Donald and offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth to retirement, and elite talent like Jalen Ramsey to free agency. Despite this, the Rams were able to draft well to keep themselves in the mix. In 2023, the Rams finished with a 10-7 record and lost in the wild-card round to the NFC North champion Detroit Lions. The season was spearheaded by record-breaking rookie receiver Puka Nacua who was drafted in the fifth round of the 2023…

The Atlanta Falcons have struggled to find success since the departure of Hall Of Fame Quarterback Matt Ryan in 2021. They addressed this inconsistency in the 2024 offseason by signing reliable 35-year-old quarterback Kirk Cousins for 180 million dollars (100 million guaranteed), despite the fact he tore his Achilles mid-way through the 2023 season. There are questions on whether Kirk can lead a team to a Superbowl, but there are no questions on whether Kirk Cousins can play the quarterback position efficiently in the NFL. Given the pace he was on, Cousins would have been an MVP candidate in 2023…

The NFC North has the potential to be a powerhouse division in 2024. The Detroit Lions displayed traits of an elite football team, falling just one game shy of attending the Superbowl. The Green Bay Packers in their first season under quarterback Jordan Love became the youngest team to win a playoff game, upsetting the number two seed Cowboys in a dominant fashion as well as proving young talent on both sides of the ball. The Chicago Bears ended their season strong, winning five of their last eight games as well as securing the number one pick by way of…

The Miami Dolphins ended an impressive yet injury-ridden season with a disappointing loss to the eventual champion Kansas City Chiefs in the first round of the NFL Playoffs. The Dolphins’ 11-win season was fueled by an electric offense and elite pass rush. After finishing the regular season top three in team sacks (56) the Phins lost a lot of key contributors to free agency, namely superstar defensive tackle Christian Wilkins (nine sacks in 2023),  hybrid edge rusher Andrew Van Ginkel (six),  defensive lineman Emmanuel Ogbah (five), and defensive tackle Raekwon Davis (two). During the 2024 offseason, the Miami Dolphins took…

The Lions finalized their season with 12 regular season wins and two postseason victories landing, them on the brink of the Super Bowl for just the second time in the team’s history. Since the NFC North’s creation in 2002, Detroit had not won the conference, which changed during their successful 2023-24 campaign.

The Miami Dolphins had a promising 2023-24 NFL season under the direction of head coach Mike McDaniel. Superstar wide receiver Tyreek Hill earned a unanimous first-team All-Pro nod with nearly 1,800 yards and 13 touchdowns with the playcalling of McDaniel. Despite a respectable 11-6 record, the Miami Dolphins narrowly missed out on home-field advantage for their Wildcard matchup and lost to the back-to-back Superbowl champion Kansas City Chiefs in sub-zero temperatures. In the sole postseason game for the Miami Dolphins in 2024 Tyreek Hill tallied just 62 yards and caught the Dolphins’ only touchdown for the game. In what can…

From moving on from veterans like Keenan Allen and Mike Williams to hiring renowned head coach Jim Harbaugh, the Chargers have displayed that they are in pursuit of a new direction with star quarterback Justin Herbert. With the loss of star running back Austin Ekeler to free agency, there were many questions as to how or who will fill in the void of snaps left.

The Colorado Buffaloes have been the talk of CFB since the arrival of head coach and NFL Hall Of Famer Deion Sanders. Under the microscope, the Buffaloes worked their way to the bottom of the Pac-12 standings and ending their season on a six-game losing streak.
