One of the great things about the NFL is that nearly every team can make a case for the upcoming season being “their year.” That’s because every campaign sees plenty of worst-to-first turnarounds, where non-playoff teams from the year before suddenly find themselves in postseason contention down the stretch.

Between building on upon what they started in 2013, as well as shrewd moves during the offseason, several clubs have put themselves in position to make the leap from an also-ran to a contender.
