Here are the 5 offenses that you can expect to light up the score board the most next season.
5. Indianapolis Colts
The Mastermind: Frank Reich
The Quarterback: Andrew Luck
The Weapons: TY Hilton, Marlon Mack, Eric Ebron, Devin Funchess, Parris Campbell, Quenton Nelson
Andrew Luck is a prime candidate to win MVP this year, and he definitely has the pieces to do it. TY is a top ten receiver, while Eric Ebron and Marlon Mack had career years last season. Expect this unit to improve even more in their 2nd season under coach Frank Reich.
4. New Orleans Saints
The Mastermind: Sean Payton
The QB: Drew Brees
The Weapons: Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara, Ted Ginn, Jared Cook, Latavius Murray, Taysom Hill, Ryan Ramczyk
New Orleans’ offense tore through the NFL for the first part of last season. They have a top five running back, top five receiver, and a top five quarterback. The Saints also got a great tight end in Jared Cook this offseason. The Saints window could be closing with Drew Brees aging and regressing, so this is the year they need to capitalize and bring another ring to New Orleans.
3. New England Patriots
The Mastermind: Josh McDaniels/Bill Belichick
The Quarterback: Tom Brady
The Weapons: Julian Edelman, N’Keal Harry, *Josh Gordon, Phillip Dorsett, James White, Sony Michel, Damien Harris, Ben Watson, Shaq Mason, Marcus Cannon
New England doesn’t always play to score the most points, but they have a plethora of weapons that will be used throughout the season. When you have the G.O.A.T coach and quarterback, three running back options, and three receivers, you will be able to score with anyone, If Josh Gordon is reinstated, it will be icing on the cake for Tom Brady.
2. Los Angeles Rams
The Mastermind: Sean McVay
The Quarterback: Jared Goff
The Weapons: Todd Gurley, Brandin Cooks, Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, Gerald Everett, Josh Reynolds, Darrell Henderson, Tyler Higbee, Andrew Whitworth
The most important player for these Rams is Todd Gurley. Since McVay’s offense revolves around play action and a good running game, Gurley’s health is key to the Rams winning a Super Bowl. LA has insane depth at the receiver position as well as a great offensive line. This is Andrew Whitworth’s last season in the NFL, so LA needs to capitalize before they lose their best offensive lineman. These Rams also lit up the scoreboard in Super Bowl LIII, putting up 3 points against the Pats.
A quote from star tackle Andrew Whitworth that I find inspiring: “At the end of the day, you’re all gonna die.”
1. Kansas City Chiefs
The Mastermind: Andy Reid
The Quarterback: Patrick Mahomes
The Weapons: Travis Kelce, Damien Williams, Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Carlos Hyde, Mecole Hardman, Mitchell Schwartz
This offense is extremely fast and is full of playmakers. It obviously starts and ends with Mahomes. Him being able to get the ball to a receiver or back in any situation is what lets the Chiefs have the best offense. Unfortunately, it’s looking like Tyreek Hill will not be suspended. Even if he was, Kansas City might still be up here. Damien Williams isa great replacement for Kareem Hunt, and Travis Kelce is the best tight end in the league. The Chiefs led the league in scoring last year wit 35.3 ppg, and you should expect that to continue this year.
