Last season the Colts began 1-5 before Andrew Luck returned to form and inspired a 9-1 run that took them all the way to the playoffs, where they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs in the divisional round.

This year, the Colts are a 14/1 shot to win the Super Bowl and many have identified them as a potential dark horse. Their preseason, however, did not get off to a promising start, as they lost 24-16 against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday.

The Colts looked toothless against the Bills as Luck was out with a calf injury, but the franchise expects him to be available for the regular-season opener.

Cleveland's fortunes also largely hinge on its quarterback. Last season, Baker Mayfield helped the Browns to a 7-8-1 record after making his NFL debut in Week 3, their most wins in a season since 2014.

In the offseason, the Browns have provided the number one overall pick of the 2018 draft with a new arsenal of weapons, adding star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and running back Kareem Hunt to their roster.

After years of being the NFL whipping boys, Cleveland has its sights firmly set on a playoff berth.

The early signs are promising, with the Browns beating the Washington Redskins 30-10 in their first preseason game even without Beckham Jr. and fellow star receiver Jarvis Landry.

Mayfield played just one series for the Browns on Thursday night, but took Cleveland 89 yards down the field in just over two minutes. The second-year quarterback completed five of six passes and threw a touchdown pass to Rashard Higgins.
