We are almost there.
The Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos will kick off the NFL’s 94th season on Thursday.
Three days later, the majority of the teams swing into action. Then next Monday night, the Philadelphia Eagles visit the Washington Redskins and the San Diego Chargers host the Houston Texans.
But you knew that already. What you may or may not know is the direction each club is headed in.
What is the basis? We are considering how all the teams finished a season ago and combining that with a look at what the last seven months or so have brought about.
Hence some teams are headed in the right direction, some may be headed backwards and a few may be in the same position from a year ago.
Then again, all of this could look incredibly different by the time Tuesday morning, Sept. 10 rolls around.
Let the educated guessing game begin.
