2020:  Lamar Jackson didn't so much break out as he erupted in 2019.  Yes, they fell flat on their face against the Titans in the Playoffs, but such is often the path of championship teams.  It would be a reach to expect them to be as dominant in 2020 for a number of reasons.  One, The rest of the league will catch up to him some, having had a full offseason to scheme for him.  Throw in the fact that Big Ben is back in Pittsburgh and Cleveland should be improved, and the AFC North is far from a cakewalk this year.  That being said, this is still the one AFC team that will legitimately threaten the Cheifs.  The D will be dominant once again, and while the league has had time to prepare for Lamar, Lamar has also had a year to improve.
