3 Most Overrated NFL Teams Ahead of the 2020 Season
Every season, there are teams hyped up in the offseason, but come up short once games start to be played. In 2019, the prime example of this were the Cleveland Browns. They were the Super Bowl pick by some, but struggled to find any sort of consistency during the season.
These are the three most overrated teams, heading into the 2020 NFL season. Their current value is determined by their odds to win the Super Bowl, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
Most Overrated NFL Teams 2020
3. Minnesota Vikings (+2500)
The Minnesota Vikings odds to win the Super Bowl are currently tied for the best odds in the NFC North, along with the Green Bay Packers. However, this may be the worst Vikings team we have seen in some time. The offensive line still has question marks, they replaced wide receiver Stefon Diggs with a rookie in Justin Jefferson, they let Everson Griffen walk and they essentially lost their entire cornerback room. There is more turnover on this team than we have seen in awhile, and the little depth they had has become even more shallow. They better hope their defense stays healthy.
2. Dallas Cowboys (+1700)
Many NFL analysts like to look at the offenses of teams, then make their decisions by that, which is likely why we see the Dallas Cowboys so highly-touted everywhere. The defense lost two of its biggest playmakers, in Byron Jones and Robert Quinn. The offense lost Travis Frederick and their coach on the field, in veteran tight end Jason Witten. The level of competition is also expected to rise, which means this team doesn't get as easy of a road to the playoffs. Last season, they notched just one win over a playoff team, and that was the Philadelphia Eagles, who only made the playoffs because the Cowboys weren't good enough to beat them out for the division title.
1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+1500)
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, to many, won the offseason after bringing in both Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski. However, the defense is still not great and the offense will need to learn an entirely new system, presumably combining the styles of both Brady and Bruce Arians. It will be tough to develop enough chemistry between Brady and the receivers in time to come out of the gates strong, and they cannot have any missteps, playing in a tough NFC South. While they are a team that likely should improve, they should not be the fifth-favorite in the NFL to win the Super Bowl, according to the odds.
