The New York Giants, meanwhile, finished a respectable No. 7 in last season's final poll, which means our experts were as surprised as the rest of the country when Big Blue went on a big postseason run, knocking off the Packers on their way to winning the Super Bowl title.
The Houston Texans, who have a lot of buzz this year, come in tied with the defending AFC champion New England Patriots for the No. 3 spot.
