Rising From the Ashes: Which NFL Cellar Dweller Takes the Next Step?

One of the great things about the NFL is the capacity for teams to rise up in short order. Look at Miami. The 1-15 Dolphins are already a thing of the past, as the team orchestrated a 13-3 turnaround to take home the division. They fell to 7-9 this year thanks to an array of injuries and a three-game season-closing skid, but they were still a team no one wanted to face.

Who will be that team next year? No one can predict a double-digit win turnaround, but what teams are capable of moving up a step next year in the form of a three- to four-win boost? That is the question we will try to answer. Rather than using the "cellar" term literally and taking the last-place team of each division, the cutoff has been put at double- digit losses—a good marker point for teams in need of a fix.
