It hasn't been three weeks since the Denver Broncos upset the Carolina Panthers 24-10 in Super Bowl 50, but the first NFL season win totals for 2016 have been released by CG Technology.
The Panthers, Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks are the five teams tied for the highest projected total of 10.5 wins.
The Super Bowl champion Broncos opened up at 9.5 wins, with the under favored at minus-120, partially reflecting the expectation that Peyton Manning will retire.
The Cleveland Browns (4.5), San Francisco 49ers (5) and Tennessee Titans (5.5) opened with the three lowest win totals. The Browns and 49ers have serious questions at quarterback, while the Titans own the No. 1 pick in the draft and need to restock their roster with talent to support Marcus Mariota.
The team with the highest projected jump is the Dallas Cowboys, which opened at 9 wins. Dallas went 4-12 last season, in an injury-plagued campaign for Tony Romo.
These win totals will likely change a good deal before the season as free agency (March) and the NFL draft (April) shift rosters for all 32 teams.
