3. New Orleans
Losing to the Rams the way they did in the NFC Championship with that controversial missed pass interference call has left the New Orleans Saints with plenty of motivation to bounce back stronger than ever in 2019.
With all due respect to Los Angeles, many believe that New Orleans would have been able to defeat New England in Super Bowl 53, but since there’s no way of proving this, all the Saints can do is focus on being in position once again next season.
Talent wise, New Orleans has one of the top offenses in the NFL thanks to Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara continuing to get better with experience, all while making life much easier for Drew Brees under center.
After leading the NFL with 125 receptions in 2018 along with the impressive statistic that he’s caught 321 passes over his first three seasons in the league, Thomas has made quite the case to be viewed as one of the league’s top receivers.
Add Brown to the mix, this would easily give New Orleans the most dangerous duo at receiver in the NFL to make the offense even more of a nightmare for teams like Los Angeles to deal with in the NFC.
