Most Underrated NFL Teams of 2017

There are some NFL teams who are not receiving the credit that they deserve. The teams people keep sleeping on. But I believe these teams are underrated and deserve more credit.

The Top Ten

1 Jacksonville Jaguars Jacksonville Jaguars The Jacksonville Jaguars are an American professional football franchise based in Jacksonville, Florida.

The Jags are having one of their best seasons in franchise history. They have the best defense in the league as well as a beastly rookie RB and a solid offensive line. Not to mentio that Blake Bortles is improving a lot under Coughlin and Marrone. People sleep on these men, they may go all the way! - DoroExploro13

As a Patriots fan, this team is absolutely frightening. I'm also scared of the Steelers, no offense Steelers fans, but I find the Jags to be scarier, because their run game is outstanding, and so is their defense. I hope, but at the same time I don't hope, that we see a Patriots vs Jags playoff match up. It would be a great test for my Patriots.

The Jags have a bright future ahead of them, too. Within a few years, this team may have a ring.
It's good to see a terrible team come back the following year and look this good.

At first I didn’t think much of them because they were a very young team but now they have piled up some good weapons on both sides of the ball including Leonard Fournette and the defense known as Sacksonville. Bortles is improving and could be the next Goff/Wentz. On top of that they look to be the champions of the AFC South. I don’t expect a super bowl run this year but I wouldn’t be surprised if #Sacksonville makes a deep playoffs run. - Randomator

2 Los Angeles Chargers Los Angeles Chargers The San Diego Chargers are a professional American football team based in San Diego, California. The Chargers compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference West division.

They have had one of the best turnarounds. From 0-4 to 7-7 I would not be surprised if they do sneak into the playoffs. - Randomator

Started off the season 0-4, but really started to dominate afterwards. They have a future hall-of-fame QB in Phillip Rivers as well as a great WR squad and great defense. Who knows? Maybe they will sneak in at 6th seed. - DoroExploro13

3 New York Jets New York Jets The New York Jets are a professional American football team located in the New York metropolitan area.

Everyone thought that they would be worse than the Browns but obviously they were wrong. The Jets were actually mediocre - Randomator

In the beginning of the season they were really good. After the 8th game NOPE

First, I want to say that the Jets will not make the playoffs, but they are highly underrated. At the begginning of the season, the Jets were not favored to win any games. They have proven otherwise. Josh McCown played surprisingly well and they have weapons on defense. - DoroExploro13

4 Buffalo Bills Buffalo Bills The Buffalo Bills are a professional American football team based in the Buffalo–Niagara Falls metropolitan area that competes in the National Football League. Buffalo Bills had the longest playoff drought of any team which came to an end in 2017.

If you have not been any better than mediocre for almost a score (20 years), then you bet you will be underrated. But the Bills have been playing alright football. They may end up making the playoffs for the first time since 1999! - DoroExploro13

5 Baltimore Ravens Baltimore Ravens The Baltimore Ravens are a professional American football team based in Baltimore, Maryland. The Ravens compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference North division.

Put up a fight against the 2-loss Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens proved that they still have juice left in them. Maybe they make the postseason! - DoroExploro13

6 San Francisco 49ers San Francisco 49ers The San Francisco 49ers are a professional American football team located in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I know they are eliminated from the playoffs and started the season 0-9, but they could finish the year 5-11 with the help of Jimmy Garroppolo. - DoroExploro13

They were taking some pages out of Cleveland’s book but then they got Jimmy Garroppolo and have been undefeated since. The Niners may have found their QB to build around. Could next year be the year they turn the ship around? - Randomator

7 Cleveland Browns Cleveland Browns The Cleveland Browns are a professional American football team based in Cleveland, Ohio. The Browns compete in the National Football League as a member team of the American Football Conference North division. ...read more.

I know they're winless, but they have so much talent on their team. It's the management that kills these guys! - DoroExploro13

This is the worst team ever! There called the browns for a reason, because you know what else is brown? Crap

Cleveland has been competitive. They have talent their problem is the management! They really need to clean up the managing side of things. It’s almost like they want the Browns to lose and suffer - Randomator

8 New Orleans Saints New Orleans Saints The New Orleans Saints are a professional American football team based in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Saints currently compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference South division.

I did not expect them to be so good this year. Drew Brees is not the one-man team I thought He's a hall-of-fame QB and has many elite targets on offense. Also with the help of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, the Saints may win their division! - DoroExploro13

9 Arizona Cardinals Arizona Cardinals The Arizona Cardinals are a professional American football franchise based in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

Not making the playoffs, but they have shown that they can still put up fights against good teams. Their secondary is terrifying and Blaine Gabbert has been playing well. Not to mention future hall-of-fame WR Larry Fitzgerald. - DoroExploro13

10 Miami Dolphins Miami Dolphins The Miami Dolphins are a professional American football franchise located in the Miami metropolitan area.

Not making the playoffs, but the Dolphins proved that they are still fighters. Without Ryan Tannehil, Jay Cutler and Matt More kept them alive on the playoff run. They have good WR's and a good defense. - DoroExploro13

The Contenders

11 Philadelphia Eagles Philadelphia Eagles The Philadelphia Eagles are a professional football franchise based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Eagles compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference East division.

How exactly are they underrated? - Randomator

I know right

12 Chicago Bears Chicago Bears The Chicago Bears are a professional American football team in Chicago, Illinois. The Bears compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division.
13 Houston Texans Houston Texans The Houston Texans are a professional American football team based in Houston, Texas. The team competes in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference South division.

If not for that season-ending injury they’d be contenders for winning the AFC South.

14 Atlanta Falcons Atlanta Falcons The Atlanta Falcons are a professional American football team based in Atlanta, Georgia. The Falcons compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference South division.
15 New England Patriots New England Patriots The New England Patriots are a professional American football team based in the Greater Boston region. New England Patriots are one of the few teams to have 5+ wins in the Super Bowl.

If you look at the past they have cheated over many times and got away with it from 2000-2015 so if we must rate teams pats not underrated overrated

16 Detroit Lions Detroit Lions The Detroit Lions are a professional American football team based in Detroit, Michigan. The Lions compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division. ...read more.
