It happens every year in the National Football League. A team that finished in last place a season ago has an incredible turnaround and wins the division. In fact it has happened 11 consecutive seasons so there is no reason to believe it wonâ€™t happen again this year.
If you include the fact that Tampa Bay and Atlanta tied for last place in the NFC South, there are nine teams that have a chance of pulling off this feat.
They are, in particular order, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans, Oakland Raiders, Washington Redskins, Minnesota Vikings, St. Louis Rams and the Buffalo Bills.

The Bills lose linebacker Kiko Alonso to a torn ACL, but they still have a suffocating defense. Sammy Watkins will spark this offense and the Patriots are on a downward slide. The Bills look very good at 12-to-1 to win the AFC East.

This team will have a top 3 defense and they will be able to compete with the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks. In fact they even should be considered a long shotÂ to win the Super Bowl.
QB Sam Bradford made several really nice downfield throws. @STLouisRams people think he is in great shape and 100% ready for season.

If Sam Bradford can come through this team can win the West.

Donâ€™t laugh, this team could have an incredible turnaround. With a new coach in Lovie Smith, this team has a new attitude.

They are clicking on offense and are good enough on defense to keep up with the Saints and the Falcons. Bet on the Buccaneers to win the NFC South and get a $1000 bonus to bet on football! Those are the top three teams to go from worst to first in the NFL, but what about the rest?
Close But No Cigar:
The Falcons have a shot, but are still building up the offensive line. Since I already like the Bucs, I will pass on the Falcons.

RG3 is back and healthy, so why not the Redskins?
Gruden: “I’ve been impressed with the entire secondary.” Said team understands talent is there, but will continue to work for consistency.
â€” Washington Redskins (@Redskins) July 31, 2014
Because they have an awful pass defense and in an era that features passing they wonâ€™t be able to win the East.

So youâ€™re telling me there is a chance:
The Cleveland Browns and the Houston Texans have some promise, but they do not have quarterbacks that can take these teams to the next level. Betting on these two teams on your own risk, but you will get a good payday if you are right.
Donâ€™t waste your money:
The Raiders and the Vikings have absolutely no chance of pulling this off, if you are bold enough to bet on these teams, you will be throwing your money away.
What team do you think will be able to go from worst to first?
