1. Baltimore Ravens
Projected Record: 9-7
They lost two of their best receivers (Anquan Boldin, Dennis Pitta), two of their best leaders (Ray Lewis, Ed Reed) and two of their best linebackers (Dannell Ellerbe, Paul Kruger). But I always respect the defending champs. Baltimore is No. 1 until it proves unworthy on the field. Plus, pass rush extraordinaire Elvis Dumervil is set for a huge season in his new home. (AP Photo)
