NFL Handicapping: Three Teams Bound to Bounce BackHouston Texans

The Texans seem likely to take a QB early in the draft, but they have a lot of good pieces. The injury bug struck hard last year, so you can’t expect that to happen again. With JJ Watt and others on that defense, it will be serviceable once again. The running game should get back on track, too, and you should expect better play through the air under Bill O’Brien. Things are looking up for Houston.

Buffalo Bills

The Bills improved a good bit last season, and they even struggled with a rookie QB. You can expect EJ Manuel to be improved this year. This should mean good things for people who make NFL picks on the Bills. The Bills have a strong fleet of skilled position players, and Doug Marrone appears to know what it takes to build the offensive line. You can make good money on the Bills next year.

Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons have to be better than they were in 2013, right? One would suspect that they will be better, but it is hard to say how much. If you are making NFL picks, you will want to take a hard look at Atlanta early in the year. They may be able to provide you with some instant value, as people will expect them to get rolled over, just as they did in 2012.
