With Kyle Shanahan as head coach and Jimmy Garoppolo as quarterback, the 49ers had expectations of fighting for the division title, but Garoppolo was injured in week 03 and the defense was a disaster throughout the campaign, with the team having a poor year and only one. not finishing last in the division because the Cardinals were even worse and won only 3 games. 

The biggest reinforcement of the attack is a healthy Jimmy Garoppolo, but the 49ers also increased depth in the running back group, bringing in Tevin Coleman, who worked with Kyle Shanahan on the Falcons. GM John Lynch's big focus, however, was to improve defense in the offseason, with the industry coming out of a very bad season.

After being one of AFC's big surprises in 2017/18, the Jaguars had a disappointing season, winning just 5 games and finishing last in AFC South. Blake Bortles remained pathetic as the team's quarterback and was replaced by Cody Kessler during the season, while the defense regressed slightly and was unable to support the team in the absence of an effective attack.

The Bears were a big surprise last season. With the arrival of a new coaching staff, the attack was more dynamic and productive, while the switch that brought linebacker Khalil Mack to Chicago made the defense the best in the NFL, with the Bears averaging only 17.7 points conceded. per game in a season where attacks were more efficient than ever.

With a solid team, GM Ryan Pace made no major investments. The Bears reinforced the attack with Cordarrelle Patterson and Mike Davis, players who should fit well into the head coach Matt Nagy's game system, while the team switched running back Jordan Howard to the Eagles after the player had a bad season. . The team lost a few pieces in defense as Adrian Amos left for rival Packers and Bryce Callahan for the Broncos, now led by Vic Fangio, the former Bears defensive coordinator.
