1. Denver Broncos

Last season's record: 13-3

The additions of CB Aqib Talib, DE DeMarcus Ware and S T.J. Ward more than offset the losses of WR Eric Decker, CB Champ Bailey and RB Knowshon Moreno. More impressive, the Broncos got better all the way around, especially on defense, and return from injury OT Ryan Clady and LB Von Miller.
