Colin Cowherd's 3-Word NFL Game: AFC edition
Very rarely is Colin Cowherd considered a man of few words.
"Forcing people to be succinct, you can describe almost anything in life – especially sports – in three words," Cowherd opined.
With the NFL draft and free-agency frenzy over and done with, Cowherd did his best to summarize each of the 32 NFL teams with three, quick words, beginning with the AFC.
Let's see what he came up with.
Buffalo Bills: Bill-ding A Juggernaut
Colin's thoughts: "They won their first AFC East Division title since ‘95. Their weakness was a pass-rush and they used their first two picks on pass-rushers."
Miami Dolphins: Tua's New Toys
Colin's thoughts: "They don't know if Tua [Tagovailoa] is gonna make it, so they have helped him by adding Will Fuller and by adding players on the outside in the draft. … He was in the bottom of the NFL in passing yards per game."
New York Jets: Saleh't To Prove
Colin's thoughts: "This is the worst roster in the division. This is the worst offensive line in the division. He's got a rookie quarterback and he's a rookie head coach."
New England Patriots: Ready To Relaunch
Colin's thoughts: "Biggest spenders by a mile in free agency. Over $300 million."
Pittsburgh Steelers: Pitt Of Misery
Colin's thoughts: "Lost five of their last six. They've lost seven of their last 10 playoff games. They're holding on valiantly to Big Ben but this is a team that makes too many mistakes in big spots, and Big Ben showed real signs of erosion at the end of the year."
Cleveland Browns: Fully Baked Brownies
Cincinnati Bengals: Brought Burrow's Buddy
Colin's thoughts: "Joe Burrow and Ja'Marr Chase – 1,800 yards in college. Burrow strongly lobbied for him in the offseason and they went and got, in my opinion, one of the best college receiver talents since Calvin Johnson at Georgia Tech."
Houston Texans: Texas-Sized Mess
Colin's thoughts: "Only team to not draft a player in the first or second round this year. Don't love the coaching hire. Don't like their front-office dysfunction."
Colin's thoughts: "They had the third-fewest turnovers in the NFL last season, and [Carson] Wentz led the NFL in interceptions last year. Can they pull back Wentz from his playmaking just a tad and make him play more of a Colts cultural style?"
Jacksonville Jaguars: Draft to Ad-Meyer
Colin's thoughts: "They added Marvin Jones. They added Carlos Hyde. They draft a quarterback and a running back in the first round. They're gonna go down swinging. I do think offensively they'll be a very tough out next year."
Tennessee Titans: Nashville No Show
Colin's thoughts: "Their defense was bad last year. They tried to shore it up in free agency but I think Ryan Tannehill, without Arthur Smith – his coordinator – will step back."
Los Angeles Chargers: Just Protect Justin
Denver Broncos: Need To Unlock
Colin's thoughts: "Get rid of Drew Lock. Since Peyton Manning left, they're 30th or 31st in every key passing statistic."
Kansas City Chiefs: Brand New Line
Las Vegas Raiders: Just Win, Maybe?
Colin's thoughts: "Do you know the Raiders have just one winning season since 2013, fewest in the National Football League?"
