Why they won’t: The window seems to be closing fast on Coach Jeff Fisher and QB Sam Bradford.
Players to watch: The Rams are all in with rookie receiver Tavon Austin.
28. Cleveland Browns (5-11)
Why they will win: The rugged nature of the AFC North has rubbed off and coach Rob Chudzinski has taken copious notes on how to win physical football games.
Why they won’t: I just can’t see Brandon Weeden, Brian Hoyer or Jason Campbell surviving in a division like this.
Players to watch: A first-team all-name team rookie Barkevious Mingo has to live up to the number 6 overall selection.
29. Philadelphia Eagles (5-11)
Why they will win: Head coach Chip Kelly is a New Hampshire guy in an incredibly tough situation, so we hope for the best.
Why they won’t: I’m just not sure Kelly’s tactics translate to the pro game after so much success in college.
Players to watch: Michael Vick to Desean Jackson remains one of the most passing combinations in the game.
30. Jacksonville Jaguars (4-12)
Why they will win: Somehow Denard Robinson ignites a spark in this offense, one that Blaine Gabbert can’t.
Why they won’t: Too many questions at the running back with Maurice Jones-Drew aging and Justin Forsett injured. I just can’t count on Jordan Todman to come through.
Players to watch: If they had someone to throw it, I’d throw it to Cecil Shorts III, he’s a game-breaker.
31. Kansas City Chiefs (4-12)
Why they will win: Alex Smith plays like a guy who had his job stolen from him in San Francisco.
Why they won’t: Do they honestly believe Andy Reid has the answers? His team needs players.
Players to watch: Tamba Hali is better than the 9-sack season he had last year would indicate. Reid must turn him loose from the edge.
32. Buffalo Bills (2-14)
Why they will win: They won’t.
Why they won’t: Former Central Catholic quarterback Chris Lane, now living in Buffalo, might be the next guy to get a tryout with the Bills under center.
Players to watch: You have to feel bad for Stevie Johnson and C.J. Spiller to be lost in this horrifying mess.
