In episode number 15 of The Backup Punter Podcast, host Keegan Matheson takes a look at the AFC North and AFC East in part one of the 2015 NFL season preview. Each team is discussed, notable additions or subtractions are highlighted and Keegan gives his prediction for where each team will finish.
The tough AFC North may bury the Cleveland Browns, barring a miracle from Johnny Manziel, but how will the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals shake out in the playoff race? Will Andy Dalton get the football to A.J. Green often enough to reach his fantasy football ceiling, and how can DeAngelo Williams help your fatasy team out of the gate?
In the AFC East, the stripped-down and controversial New England Patriots won’t skip a beat. Of course they wont! Can the Miami Dolphins dethrone Tom Brady and the Pats, and how will their backfield shake out between LaMar Miller and Jay Ajayi? In Buffalo, can Rex Ryan drag enough out of his quarterback, perhaps Tyrod Taylor, to allow for his elite defense to shine? What about Geno Smith and the J-E-T-S?
