The Houston Texans finished the 2019 season with a disappointing loss against the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Playoff game. The Cheifs would go on to win the Super Bowl game a few weeks later. Houston finished the regular season 10-6 and in first place in the AFC South.
The Carolina Panthers enter the 2020 season with the hopes of ending this season with a much better record than the 5-11 record they had in 2019. Carolina started the 2019 season losing the first three games in a row along with losing the last eight consecutive games.
The 2019 season was one the Pittsburgh Steelers wish they could forget. The season started with a 33-3 beating from the New England Patriots. Then the next week, future Hall of Fame quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered a season-ending elbow injury.
The 2019 season seemed like the final season the Los Angeles Chargers had to make the most out of their current opportunity. A year after advancing to the divisional-round, many had them pegged for a Super Bowl run.
Not many people had hope for the Lions heading into 2019. Their first game ended in a tie due to an unneeded timeout. Detroit won the next two games against the Chargers and Eagles behind the offense firing on all cylinders under Darrell Bevell’s new offense.
After 50 years of waiting for the Lombardi Trophy to make its way back to Kansas City, it finally happened in 2019. In a season full of ups and downs for the Kansas City Chiefs, it all came together at the right moment and they found themselves 12-4 and the end of the regular season and AFC West Champions.
The New York Jets started the 2017 season by starting 1-7. Over their next eight games though, they went 6-2 to finish the season 7-9. It was ultimately an up-and-down year for the Jets behind Adam Gase, who somehow remains the head coach. Sam Darnold was hot-and-cold the whole year and needs to be more consistent for the Jets to reach the playoffs this year.
One of the most up and down teams in the NFL over the past few seasons, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were up to their old tricks in 2019. One of the most high powered offenses in the league, the team finished third overall in the league, with over 398 yards and 28 points per game. However, the downfall of Tampa Bay was self-inflicted as quarterback Jamies Winston threw 30 interceptions and fumbled 12 times in 16 games.
