This is your Barker's Chris Miller.
The NFL adopted a 12 team playoff format in 1990 in every year since, has seen at least four teams that failed to qualify for the postseason the previous year.
Make it the following season.
The field expands to 14 starting this year, which means there should be even more turnover than usual.
With that in mind, let's take a look at 3 2019 non playoff teams that have a good chance to make it in 2020.
The Arizona Cardinals have a lot going for them.
Rookie linebacker Isaiah Simmons, out of Clemson, should solidify the middle of a defense that was particularly vulnerable against tight ends in 2019 Kyler Murray looks poised to make the leap at quarterback in Year two, especially with DeAndre Hopkins joining an already solid wide receiver corps.
If rookie tackle Josh Jones, selected in the third round from Houston, can give immediate help to what was a shaky offensive line, Arizona has a chance to contend for a playoff spot.
Even in the rugged NFC West, there might not be a more underrated player in all of football in Detroit, quarterback Matthew Stafford, the Lions were just 34 and one with Stafford at the helm at the halfway point of last season.
But he was on pace for a 5000 yard, 38 touchdown, 10 interception campaign.
He went down with an injury.
The lines went winless.
Owen Aid the rest of the way.
They got some secondary help in the form of third overall pick Jeffrey Yokota, who should lock down one side of the field at cornerback.
But really, this is all about Stafford.
If he's healthy and productive, the Lions have a chance to make some hay in what could be a muddled and have seen North.
Finally, the New York Jets will taken interesting bet to make the playoffs in 2020 the Jets for seven and six in games started by Sam Donald last year.
But oh, and three when he was out with mononucleosis.
Had Donald not gotten sick, there's a good chance that Jets would have made the playoffs.
They also beefed up the team around him this off season.
Mukai Beckton, from Louisville should be a mountain at left tackle.
Protecting Donald and Baylor's Denzel Memes looks like an intriguing threat at wide receiver Josh Allen is erratic, and so the Bills can't completely be trusted, even though they have the best roster top to bottom in the A F C East.
The Patriots figure to come back to Earth without Tom Brady and the Jets.
If Donald can produce and make a leap forward in, your three not only have a chance to make the playoffs, but they could well win the A F C East.
There you have it.
Three non playoff teams from 2019 that have a good shot to make it in 2020 for yard Barker.
