Last year was a disaster to say the least in Jacksonville. Coming off an AFC Championship appearance, expectations were high for the Jaguars and they fell flat on their faces. Out goes Blake Bortles and in comes Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles. Will the Jaguars prove that their AFC Championship Game appearance a couple years ago wasn't a fluke with Nick Foles?
While expectations weren't as high in Tampa, a 2-1 start with Ryan Fitzpatrick starting for a suspended Jameis Winston had people talking. Things however would take a turn for the worse as the Bucs would finish the season 3-10. Out goes Dirk Koetter, in comes Bruce Arians. Arians has a reputation for working wonders with QBs. Will he be able to get Jameis Winston to cut down on his turnovers and turn him into a star?
The Dolphins finished with the best record inside the state of Florida, going 7-9. It was a very strange year for them with QB Ryan Tannehill having injury issues that nobody could figure out what it was. The team shot down the rumors of Tannehill having a "dead arm". Tannehill played in only 11 games with Brock Osweiler taking over. Both of them are gone as well as head coach Adam Gase. The Dolphins traded for former first round pick Josh Rosen, brought in Ryan Fitzpatrick from Tampa, and hired Brian Flores from New England to be their head coach. Josh Rosen did not live up to expectations in Arizona, can he provide the Dolphins with a franchise QB they so desperately need?
