Storylines To Watch

Can the Baltimore Ravens repeat as champions?

The Ravens completed a miraculous run through the playoffs, which included an improbable comeback against the Denver Broncos, by defeating the San Francisco 49ers to win Super Bowl XLVII. Now, they must try to do it again.

Which team is your early Super Bowl pick?

Although a couple of longtime defensive stalwarts are gone in Ray Lewis and Ed Reed, Baltimore is still built for success.

The defense is still built for success thanks to players like Haloti Ngata, Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil, but somebody needs to accept the leadership role. The onus on offense falls squarely on the shoulders of Joe Flacco. He will spend the entire season attempting to show he's a top-tier quarterback and simply didn't have a perfectly-time hot streak in the playoffs. Another deep run would go a long way in proving his worth.

 

Will any injuries change the course of the season?

Unfortunately, injuries are part of the game, and it seems like, every season, a couple of playoff races are altered by training camp ailments. This year probably won't be any different, and there are already early signs of that.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin is undergoing testing to determine the severity of a knee injury, per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. Losing him for any significant portion of the season, or potentially the whole thing, would be a huge setback for the Eagles.

Other teams will find themselves hoping for the best in similar situations throughout camp. Hopefully the number of significant injuries suffered by players, from stars to niche contributors, is limited. But odds are there's going to be a couple key ones.

 

Which unheralded players step up and steal the spotlight?

In today's world, where fantasy football owners are constantly searching for potential sleepers, there are more eyes than ever watching role players. Backup running backs and No. 3 wide receivers are no longer forgotten commodities. Instead, they have a tremendous chance to shine.

Standout performances during training camp practices paired with some big preseason games can cause a player to become a household name among football fans. The opportunity is available.

One player to keep an eye on is Buffalo Bills rookie wideout Robert Woods. He enters camp as the No. 3 option, but he's more talented than T.J. Graham and could easily move into a starting spot. And with defenses focused on Stevie Johnson, he should see plenty of targets.
