St. Louis, Carolina, Atlanta, New Orleans, San Francisco
2. Carolina—Steve Beuerlein was the best quarterback last year outside of St. Louis. And yes, that includes Indianapolis. The loss of Patrick Jeffers will hurt but coach George Seifert will guide his team to the playoffs in 2000.
4. New Orleans—Ricky Williams wasn't as bad as you might have been led to believe last year. That being said, he'll need to improve on his two touchdowns. Thanks to Jeff Blake and receiver Jake Reed, he will.
5. San Francisco—Nothing too different from last year. The defense stinks and Jeff Garcia is no Steve Young. They might only win two games.
