1—Broncos: A top-5 defense and an elite passing game that added Wes Welker. *13-3 **(1)

2—Seahawks: With the addition of Percy Harvin, there will be no sophomore slump for Russell Wilson. 11-5 (4)

3—49ers: If not for the loss of Michael Crabtree, they might be No. 1. 11-4-1 (5)

4—Ravens: Can the Ravens defense survive loss of two key leaders like Ray Lewis and Ed Reed? We’ll see. 10-6 (11)

5—Falcons: Falcons need rookie corners Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford to have an immediate impact. 13-3 (2)

6—Packers: Additions of Eddie Lacy and Jonathan Franklin should improve ground game that didn’t have a 500-yard rusher. 11-5 (6)

7—Patriots: No Aaron Hernandez, no Wes Welker, and probably no Rob Gronkowski for a while. But Tom Terrific didn’t go anywhere. 12-4 (3)

8—Texans: DeAndre Hopkins should be an excellent pass-catching compliment to Andre Johnson. 12-4 (8)

9—Bengals: Bengals defense allowed just 12.8 points per game in second half of 2012. James Harrison should only make that D stingier. 10-6 (10)

10—Rams: Look for a breakout season from QB Sam Bradford. 7-8-1 (16)

11-Vikings: Greg Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson are going to do wonders for Christian Ponder’s production. 10-6 (12)

12—Bears: Marc Trestman will be the best thing that ever happened to Jay Cutler. OK, with the possible exception of Kristin Cavallari.10-6 (13)

13—Colts: Watch Andrew Luck won’t be throwing 18 interceptions again this season. 11-5 (7)

14—Giants: Giants need Jason Pierre-Paul back to 100 percent ASAP. 9-7 (14)

15-Redskins: Cap issues prevented Redskins from addressing some obvious deficiencies. 10-6 (9)

16—Chiefs: With the acquisition of QB Alex Smith, Andy Reid’s team could be this season’s rags-to-riches tale. 2-14 (31)

17—Dolphins: If LT Jonathan Martin can keep Ryan Tannehill upright, Dophins could challenge in AFC East. 7-9 (22)

18—Steelers: Steelers have gotten old. Time to check out assisted living while personnel chief Kevin Colbert makes the necessary changes. 8-8 (17)

19—Panthers: They’ve fixed their defense, but Cam Newton can’t be their leading rusher again. 7-9 (18)

20—Saints: Sean Payton is back, but it will be up to Rob Ryan to fix their historically bad defense. 7-9 (21)

21—Bucs: Josh Freeman has thrown 39 interceptions the last 2 years. If he can cut down on the turnovers, Bucs could be a playoff contender. But that’s a big if. 7-9 (23)

22—Eagles: Were aggressive in FA and had a seemingly solid draft, but still have unanswered questions at quarterback and the back end of their defense. 4-12 (30)

23—Lions: Addition of Reggie Bush and a solid draft should put the Lions back in playoff contention in the NFC North. 4-12 (28)

24—Cowboys: Tony Romo has financial security now, but his security in the pocket still is an issue. 8-8 (15)

25—Titans: Nobody was happier to see the Titans draft Chance Warmack than Chris Johnson. 6-10 (24)

26—Chargers: Philip Rivers had 22 turnovers last year. Now he’s got King Dunlap protecting his blind side. Fore! 7-9 (19)

27—Cardinals: Carson Palmer hasn’t had a passer rating above 87 since ’06. 5-11 (26)

28—Bills: Their selection of QB EJ Manuel with 16th pick was either a stroke of genius or another knuckleheaded move by a hapless franchise. Survey says. . . 6-10 (20)

29—Jaguars: Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne combined for a 74.7 passer rating last season. 2-14 (32)

30—Browns: On the plus side, at least Jimmy Haslam hasn’t been indicted. Yet. 5-11 (27)

31—Jets: Marty, Marty, Marty. You should’ve followed Andy to KC. 6-10 (25)

32—Raiders: Their 2013 theme song will be Hall & Oates’ “Starting All Over Again.’’ 4-12 (29)
