Their RB has had 3 straight 1,000 yard seasons
their defense is probably 2nd best in the belt on paper, boarderline 1st if their secondary develops quickly.

Their Defense was a pleasant surprise last year - young & inexperience in some key positions, but they manage to play tough all year.  Sound similar.

They do have a potent offense, Leonard is always dangerous.

What keeps us down is the unknown on defense, its not like we played lights out on D last year.  Hopefully, they will turn some heads this year.  Image a solid dominaning type of D with the offense we have  :o  Might be a year early for that thought.
