Eight scariest NFL offenses heading into 2017

Arizona Cardinals

In sticking with west coast teams, Bruce Arians has the pleasure of coaching the best offense in the NFC West. The Cardinals took a few stumbles in 2016, but their offense still finished at a stealthy No. 9 overall.

Running back David Johnson absolutely crushed it his second year, posting a grand total of 2,118 yards and 20 touchdowns. He alone makes the Cardinals offense quite frightening in a face-to-face matchup.

On the other side of 30 and proving ageless, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald tallied a league-high 107 receptions, showing no sign of decline. The offense also boasts John Brown and the young speedster J.J. Nelson. Tight end Jermaine Gresham rounds things out, giving quarterback Carson Palmer another big-bodied catcher.

The Cardinals fell shy of reaching the playoffs in 2016. But there is no reason to think at all they can’t conquer their division with such a talented roster.
