4. Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos is another team that has gone through a pretty significant change within the franchise this offseason. They have a new head coach in Nathaniel Hackett, who at one time was offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills, and notably traded for former Super Bowl champion Russell Wilson to help this offense.

It has worked in the past for the Broncos, trading for a veteran quarterback, as they did with Peyton Manning a few years ago. Wilson has plenty of talent around him in wide receivers Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton along with running back Javonte Williams.

The question is how quickly can it all come together and can everyone get on the same page. The Rams were able to win the Super Bowl in the first year with Matthew Stafford however they had an experienced head coach in Sean McVay who has been there a few years.

This will be the first year Hackett has been a head coach and if he is able to get this team off to a fast start, they certainly have a chance to make a run in this conference.
