The surprise team of the year will be the Browns, bank on it.
I hope the Rams have a lot of opportunities for long ass field goal attempts because I snagged Greg the Leg with the last pick of my draft. I can't believe how overlooked he was while other kickers with inferior distance went much earlier. Unless there's something I'm missing.

Zeurlein could be the difference maker in the close weeks because 50+ yards is worth more than your typical chip shot field goal. What they should do is not penalize you if your kicker misses anything 50+ but take away 3 points for missing anything inside the 50.
On a related note, anyone draft early and get stuck with Aaron Hernandez? I didn't, but I know some outlets were drafting in late June so the possibility exists that many people were blissfully unaware their TE1 was about to come out as a serial killer. If the Pats knew what they know now about him they probably wouldn't have been so lax about letting Welker walk. Now their only viable receiving threat (fortunately for my team) is Danny Amendola. If he doesn't get the majority of the targets and score at least 16 TD's, I'd be shocked.

Since then there have been 18 tied games, none occurring in 2 or more consecutive seasons since 1989. With San Fran and St. Louis tying last season, the possibility of consecutive seasons with the extraordinarily rare tie game exists this year. The Eagles and Packers have been in the most combined tie games since '74 (8 total) and they play each other on November 10th.
