14. GREEN BAY PACKERS (7-9)
LAST SEASON: Missed playoffs for first time since 2008 after quarterback Aaron Rodgers missed two months with broken collarbone.

Injuries ravaged cornerback position for second straight year, while LB Clay Matthews and edge rush couldn’t generate consistent pressure. Second-year players Kenny Clark and Dean Lowry joined Mike Daniels as bright spots on defensive line, and Blake Martinez turned into tackling machine at inside linebacker.
