2.) Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins were the biggest challenge for the Bills last season and there is no reason to believe that it will not continue into the 2023 season. Head coach Mike McDaniel proved that he was able to take a quarterback like Tua Tagovailoa and turn him into a top ten quarterback when he is on the field.

Wide receivers Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle have a year together and look to return as the best 1-2 receiving core in the league. In addition, Vic Fangio will take over the defensive play calling duties to allow McDaniel to keep focus on the offense. 

The Dolphins made a trade for cornerback Jalen Ramsey from the Los Angeles Rams, but he suffered a knee injury that could keep him out until December. The Dolphins also do not have a running game other than Raheem Mostert who is 31 years old going into the season.

Although, the biggest x-factor for the Dolphins is whether or not Tagovailoa is able to avoid another concussion, in which he suffered multiple concussions last season.
