27. Detroit Lions
> Avg. odds: 84/1
> 2018 record: 6-10
> Strength of schedule: 12th easiest (tied)
> Key addition: Trey Flowers

After a 6-10 2018 season, the Detroit Lions were active in free agency. An infusion of new talent could prime the team for future success, but they may struggle to find wins in 2019. Their division foes — the Packers, Bears, and Vikings — are all projected to be winning teams and even serious Super Bowl contenders.

26. Oakland Raiders
> Avg. odds: 74.2/1
> 2018 record: 4-12
> Strength of schedule: The hardest
> Key addition: Clelin Ferrell

With three 2019 first-round draft picks, the Oakland Raiders are looking to fast-track their rebuild. Defensive end Clelin Ferrell and safety Jonathan Abraham will look to improve the NFL’s worst scoring defense. But that could be a tall order, especially given that Oakland will face the league’s toughest schedule.

25. Buffalo Bills
> Avg. odds: 92/1
> 2018 record: 6-10
> Strength of schedule: 9th easiest
> Key addition: Cole Beasley

After a 6-10 2018 season, the Buffalo Bills remain a work in progress. The team signed a bevy of offensive weapons — including wide receivers John Brown and Cole Beasley and running backs T.J. Yeldon and Frank Gore — to help second year QB Josh Allen. Allen will need to prove he was worth a seventh overall pick after throwing 12 interceptions compared to just 10 TDs in his rookie season.

24. Denver Broncos
> Avg. odds: 79.2/1
> 2018 record: 6-10
> Strength of schedule: 2nd hardest
> Key addition: Joe Flacco

Since Peyton Manning retired, the Denver Broncos have been searching for their quarterback of the future. They may have found it in Joe Flacco. The long-time Baltimore Raven hopes to revitalize the Broncos offense, but Denver may be hard pressed to find a playoff spot as their division rivals, the Los Angeles Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs, look to be two of the strongest teams in the NFL in 2019.

23. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
> Avg. odds: 86/1
> 2018 record: 5-11
> Strength of schedule: 12th hardest (tied)
> Key addition: Bruce Arians

It is hard to win a Super Bowl without a good quarterback. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers thought they had a franchise QB in Jameis Winston, but the former first overall pick has struggled with turnovers and was benched for much of 2018. If new coach Bruce Arians can’t get Winston to live up to his potential in his fifth season, it could be a long 2019 in Tampa.
