Vegas gives them 9/1 to win the AFCC and 17/1 to win the SB ( behind only KC and Balt). Gives the Colts 12/1 and 25/1.
If you use the Vegas odds as ranking, NE would be tied for 6th in the NFL, and Indy 10th (4th in the AFC).
I honestly don't know if NE would have that much different odds or rank had TB stayed.
TB is 14/1 to win the SB, and 3rd in the NFC.
What a great prospectus for a team to be facing, sorta like...
who had a bigger impact, Leonard or Nelson two years ago. Let's hope they both rise to national prominence in their rookie seasons.
Yup I'm a dreamer!
