12. Las Vegas Raiders

Much like Green Bay, Las Vegas has had an offseason of downgrades, specifically at the quarterback positon. Derek Carr wanted out and found a new home in New Orleans and the Raiders brought in Jimmy Garoppolo.

You can say what you want about Carr, but he is objectively better than Jimmy G. So, how can we expect a team returning most of its players with a worse quarterback to be better than the 6-11 team we saw last year?

One guy they didn't return is stud tight end Darren Waller who now, as we all know, will be in Giants colors when the team goes to Vegas. Waller will probably have some extra motivation to get back at head coach Josh McDaniels for leaking his wedding information, so expect a big game from him.

In all seriousness, the Giants offense should have their way with this Raiders defense. If the offensive line is able to neutralize Maxx Crosby and Chandler Jones (easier said than done), this game shouldn't be close at all.
