1. Baltimore Ravens
Although the Ravens have lost far too much to be a serious threat to repeat, they will take the division led by Joe Flacco and his newly inked max contract along with Ray Rice but missing will be the defensive presences of departed players such as Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, and Anquan Bolden.
2. Cincinnati Bengals
This is it. Year 3 of the Andy Dalton experiment. Could it also be the last? Every year Cincinnati makes the playoffs as a wild card, and lose in the wild card round. But this is Andy Dalton's last chance. It's divisional round or bust for the Bengals.
