21. Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys need to turn things around in a hurry if they want to stay in the playoff race. Things in the NFC East are very competitive with the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins both performing well. The Cowboys just see off and it’s hard to pin-point the problem.

22. Oakland Raiders

Derek Carr’s injury has the potential to derail the Oakland Raiders playoff hopes. The AFC playoff picture is very crowded at the moment. It doesn’t help that the AFC West is load with both the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos playing at a high level. The Raiders need to find a way to weather this storm.

23. Cleveland Browns (Via Hou)

This pick is becoming less valuable each and every week. The Houston Texans are playing excellent football with a lot of that due to the pay of Deshaun Watson. Things could get very hairy in Cleveland if Watson continues to perform at this level. The Browns decision to pass on Watson could prove to be one of the bigger mistakes in their history.

24. Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions squeaked out a win against the undermanned Minnesota Vikings. However, that win still counts and keeps him on pace with the Green Bay Packers. Detroit is playing with more balance than ever. Case in point, Ameer Abdullah rushed for 94 yards against a tough Vikings defense.
