Arizona Cardinals: 2015 NFL Preseason Power Rankings
By Scott Allen
The 2015 NFL season, as with any other season, will see some things change and some stay the same
There are still some things left unresolved from the 2014 season for many teams. Will Tom Brady end up being suspended for deflategate? He was suspended four games but had his appeal a week and a half ago. How will July 3rd’s suspensions impact teams like the San Diego Chargers? How will all the departures from the San Francisco shape not only the NFC West but the NFC as a whole?

A lot of player changed teams. The Arizona Cardinals got guard Mike Iupati. The Buffalo Bills got running back LeSean McCoy. The Miami Dolphins landed defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Running back Frank Gore is an Indianapolis Colts playmaker now. Just to name a few of the headline free agents and players to move teams this spring.
So, we start our rankings with the number 32 team and work our way to the number one team. You’ll probably notice not a huge difference at the bottom or top of the rankings but there has been some movement since the end of the 2014 campaign.

32. Tennessee Titans
2014 season record: 2-14
Top additions: QB Marcus Mariota, WR Dorial Green-Beckham, LB Brian Orakpo
Top departures: QB Jake Locker, FB Collin Mooney
2015 projection: 5-11, 4th AFC South, miss playoffs
Many thought that the Tennessee Titans didn’t do enough in the off season to improve their offensive game. They may be right. There is still a lot of skepticism regarding quarterback Marcus Mariota. Is he capable of running an NFL offense. I’m not sure the Titans had any choice but to give it a go with him after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers took Jameis Winston.
I think they are going to find a tough go of it in 2015 just as much as they did in 2014. Maybe they squeak out the few extra wins as I predicted. I wouldn’t hold your breath or hold me to that prediction though. Good luck to coach Ken Whisenhunt who should squarely be on the hot seat this season.
