Biggest stories heading into Dolphins, Jags, and Bucs - @BrandonKravitz


Jaguars: Coming off of a 10-6 season and a trip to the AFC Championship game vs the New England Patriots, expectations are through the roof in Jacksonville! The team seemingly got better in the offseason as well, they gave Bortles that boost of confidence with a 54 million dollar contract, signed one of the best guards in the league (Andrew Norwell), and beefed up their receiving core with Donte Moncrief and Austin Sefarian Jenkins. 2 biggest questions: Can they stay healthy and can they stay hungry? 

Dolphins: The Dolphins come in with a load of question marks. Ryan Tannehill's health, their suspect receiving core with Landry not on the team anymore, and a young/inexperienced defense. Plus, they have the whole National Anthem debate looming over their heads, maybe more so than any other team, given the recent story to come out. 2 biggest questions: Can Tannehill prove that he's the franchise? Will this team respond in a make or break year for head coach Adam Gase? 

Bucs: Tampa Bay went 5-11 last year, and the reasons were pretty clear...Shaky play at QB, and a suspect defense. Well, the defense was addressed heavily in free-agency/draft/trades with the additions of JPP, Vita Vea, Vinny Curry, and Beau Allen. The Bucs running game didn't help much either, which is why the Bucs spent an early pick on Ronald Jones out of USC. 2 biggest questions: Will the team rally around or turn on Jameis Winston after he returns from a 3-game suspension? Will the additions on defense pay off quickly? 

Record predictions: 

Jags: 11-5 

Dolphins: 4-12

Bucs: 6-10
