12. Dallas Cowboys
> Avg. odds: 21/1
> 2018 record: 10-6
> Strength of schedule: 14th hardest (tied)
> Key addition: Robert Quinn

After a 10-6 2018 season, offseason issues have threatened to derail the Dallas Cowboys’ 2019 season before it even begins. Star running back Ezekiel Elliott has refused to go to training camp in search of a new contract, and he may not be back in time for the season. But with a stout defense, the Cowboys could have a terrific season if Elliott ends up playing.

11. Green Bay Packers
> Avg. odds: 19.4/1
> 2018 record: 6-9
> Strength of schedule: 14th hardest (tied)
> Key addition: Matt LaFleur

With Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, the Packers will have decent a chance to win every game they play. But the question in Green Bay for the 2019 season is whether new head coach Matt LaFleur can get Rodgers back to his MVP-level form. The Packers shored up their defense in the offseason, signing edge rushers Preston Smith and Za’Darius Smith as well as safety Adrian Amos.

10. Minnesota Vikings
> Avg. odds: 22.4/1
> 2018 record: 8-7
> Strength of schedule: 10th hardest
> Key addition: Irv Smith Jr.

After narrowly missing out on the playoffs in 2018, the Minnesota Vikings could make a deep postseason run in 2019. The Vikings had a solid defense, but the offense struggled to score points. QB Kirk Cousins had the highest salary in the NFL in 2018. If he can live up to his massive contract in 2019, the Vikings will be serious Super Bowl contenders.

9. Pittsburgh Steelers
> Avg. odds: 19/1
> 2018 record: 9-6
> Strength of schedule: 12th easiest (tied)
> Key addition: Devin Bush Jr.

In the 2018 season, much of the talk around the Steelers focused on wide receiver Antonio Brown’s feud with the team and subsequent trade. Going into 2019, the Steelers retooled their defense with several free agent signings and first round draft pick Devin Bush. With two-time Super Bowl champ Ben Roethlisberger at QB, the Steelers could be title contenders again.

8. Cleveland Browns
> Avg. odds: 15.6/1
> 2018 record: 7-8
> Strength of schedule: 10th easiest
> Key addition: Odell Beckham Jr.

The Cleveland Browns have been the talk of the NFL going into the 2019 season after 2018’s top overall draft pick QB Baker Mayfield impressed at the end of the previous season. With new superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., the Browns could end their 16-season playoff drought.
