Re: Dark horses in 2011?
Bills? I doubt it. The best they could do is 3rd in that division IMO. Still too many holes.
Raiders? Winable division. They proved that by going 6-0. Need a passing game. solid at RB.
Lions? Should impove. Defense could be much better. Probably not this year in the same division as the Pack, but could be tough to beat in 2 or 3 years. Need to have Stafford stay healthy.
As far as teams who didn't make the playoffs last year that will this year. Give me the Raiders and Rams.
