The NFL has wrapped up the 2020 regular season. The playoff field is set and teams have clinched their over or under (or push) on sportsbook preseason win totals. Week by week, we tracked which teams officially met or surpassed preseason projected win totals from DraftKings Sportsbook, and which teams came up short.
Baltimore Ravens (11) PUSH: Lamar Jackson and the Ravens offense took a step back in 2020, but the team still impressed as the season wore on. They’re headed to the playoffs riding a five-game win streak.
Cincinnati Bengals (5) UNDER: Joe Burrow impressed early, but a torn ACL ended his rookie season early. The Bengals managed a couple impressive wins over the Titans and Steelers while also securing a top six draft pick.
Detroit Lions (6) UNDER: The team failed to meet some preseason hype in the NFC North. Their offense was solid but struggled once Kenny Golladay got hurt. Their defense was atrocious and cost Matt Patricia his job.
New York Giants (6) PUSH: It’s unclear if Daniel Jones is the long term answer for the Giants. He stumbled at times but showed flashes at other times. He has to take a step forward in 2021 or his time with Big Blue will be short lived.
Carolina Panthers (5.5) UNDER: The first season under Matt Rhule had some solid moments, but losing Christian McCaffrey for all but three games hamstrung this offense most of the season.
Chicago Bears (8.5) UNDER: The Bears are headed to the playoffs in spite of an 8-8 record. Mitchell Trubisky wrested back the starting job and might very well have earned himself a second chance to secure a long-term contract.
Las Vegas Raiders (7) OVER: The Raiders first season in Las Vegas saw the offense show some encouraging signs. However, the defense was abysmal and we can expect heavy investment on that side of the ball this offseason.
Los Angeles Chargers (7) PUSH: The Chargers have to be encouraged by the development of rookie QB Justin Herbert. Anthony Lynn remains shaky at best as head coach and his status is still unclear moving forward.
Los Angeles Rams (9) OVER: The Rams looked like world beaters much of the 2020 season, but then had their stumbles late — including a stunning loss to the Jets. They’re headed back to the playoffs on the back of a strong defense and an offense that bounced back from a shaky 2019 season.
New Orleans Saints (11) OVER: In spite of losing Drew Brees to injury for four starts, the Saints chugged along and were NFC South champions once again. They dealt with Michael Thomas injuries, but a strong defense and a deep offense have them Super Bowl contenders once again.
Denver Broncos (7) UNDER: Injuries were a big issue, with Von Miller and Courtland Sutton lost for the season. Drew Lock had his moments, but has not quite emerged like the Broncos might hope and the offense struggled to get much of anything going.
Seattle Seahawks (9.5) OVER: The Seahawks defense struggled out of the gate, but has started to come together. And as long as they have Russell Wilson under center, the Seahawks will remain contenders.
Arizona Cardinals (8) OVER: Kyler Murray is proving his rookie year wasn’t a fluke, and the addition of DeAndre Hopkins has been a big reason for that. The defense has impressed as well, ranking ninth in efficiency.
Atlanta Falcons (8) UNDER: The Falcons fired head coach Dan Quinn earlier in the year, and things have not gotten much better. Atlanta won three of four at one point, but has since lost three of four and Julio Jones’ hamstring is an issue.
Buffalo Bills (8.5) OVER: The addition of Stefon Diggs has been huge for the Bills. Josh Allen has taken a big step forward and while part of that is due to Diggs, he also has improved his overall game. That coupled with a consistent defense has the Bills on the verge of the AFC East title.
Green Bay Packers (9.5) OVER: In spite of much controversy over the Packers not making a big investment in the wide receiver position, Aaron Rodgers is once again in the thick of the MVP race and Matt LaFleur will be a significant vote-getter in Coach of the Year balloting.
Indianapolis Colts (8.5) OVER: Philip Rivers has been solid since joining the Colts and the defense has lived up to expectations since adding DeForest Buckner in the offseason. They are losing the tiebreaker to the Titans, but barring a collapse are headed to the playoffs.
Kansas City Chiefs (11.5) OVER: The Chiefs have remained Super Bowl favorites all season, and while they’ve gotten some tough contests including an upset loss to the Raiders, it’s hard to see anybody outlasting them in the playoffs.
Minnesota Vikings (9.5) UNDER: It’s been a hugely disappointing season for Kirk Cousins and company. They still have a decent shot at a wild card berth, but at 6-7 at the moment, they’re going to need a strong finish against Chicago, New Orleans, and Detroit.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7.5) OVER: It’s been an up-and-down season for Tom Brady and the new-look Bucs, but they’re up to eight wins and have a great shot at securing at least a wild card berth. Brady looks cooked at times, but then turns around and makes some huge plays. They’re going to be relatively long shots come January, but they’ll have their shot.
Tennessee Titans (8.5) OVER: Ryan Tannehill is playing solid football, but Derrick Henry carries the Titans. The defense has taken a significant step backward from last season, and it will make life more difficult for the offense come January.
Washington Football Team (5.5) OVER: WFT has won four straight and suddenly leads the NFC East with a 6-7 record. A win over Philly in Week 17 might be enough to secure the division for Washington, which is riding a great defense and a slowly improving offense to some impressive performances of late.
Jacksonville Jaguars (5.5) UNDER: The Jaguars fired their GM last week and it’s hard to see Doug Marrone lasting past Black Monday. They gave the Vikings a tough fight on Sunday, but they still have no answer at quarterback and there are few impressive pieces on the roster.
Houston Texans (8.5) UNDER: It’s been a mess of a season, and really a mess since Bill O’Brien decided to trade DeAndre Hopkins. BOB has been fired and the team will be making some big changes once the season ends.
Cleveland Browns (7.5) OVER: Seven of Cleveland’s eight victories have come against teams with losing records, but a win is a win is a win. They’re well on track to earn a playoff berth, but their Week 13 game against Tennessee will be a huge test considering Baltimore and Pittsburgh both thumped the Browns earlier this season.
New York Jets (6) UNDER: Sam Darnold has struggled when healthy, and with the Jets in the driver’s seat for the No. 1 overall pick, the switch to Trevor Lawrence seems likely. The question for now is how much longer Adam Gase will stick around.
Pittsburgh Steelers (9) OVER: The Steelers are 10-0 and this Thursday will become the third team in the past 50 years to play on Thanksgiving with an undefeated record, per Adam Schefter. They were hoping to bounce back with the return of Ben Roethlisberger, but it’s been a dominant defense that has led them to their current unbeaten record.
New England Patriots (10.5) UNDER: Many expected the team to take a step back after Tom Brady’s departure, but not many expected them to struggle as much as they have. Cam Newton has had his moments, but has struggled to get going with consistency, and the once formidable defense ranks dead last in efficiency.
Philadelphia Eagles (9.5) UNDER: Considering expectations, Carson Wentz has been nothing short of a disaster for the Eagles. He’s already matched his career high in interceptions and is on track for career lows in touchdowns, QBR, and virtually every advanced metric. The team has dealt with a host of injuries, but Wentz’s play more than anything is why they’re in their current position.
Miami Dolphins (5.5) OVER: The Dolphins are 3-0 under rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and show no signs of slowing down. The defense is allowing a score on just 28.9% of opposing drives — the third lowest rate in the NFL — to help them clinch their pre-season win total of 5.5 games with a record of 6-3.
San Francisco 49ers (11) UNDER: The Super Bowl hangover is real — at least when it comes to injuries for the 49ers. This unit has been demolished by injuries to QB Jimmy Garoppolo, superstar tight end George Kittle, the entire running back corps, and 2019’s defensive rookie of the year, Nick Bosa. After falling to 4-6, they’ve officially missed their projected win total of 11 games in 2020.
Dallas Cowboys (9.5) UNDER: We didn’t need a 2020 preseason win total to tell us that the Cowboys were having an abundantly disappointing season. Dallas officially fell to 2-7 heading into their bye, meaning that if they win out, they’ll have a max of 9 wins. They’ve officially missed their projected win total of 9.5 games with franchise QB Dak Prescott out for the season.
