The NFL season is fast approaching and while teams are still going through training camp, a lot of questions are being asked.
Can the New England Patriots survive four games without Tom Brady? Will the Indianapolis Colts finally realise their Super Bowl dream? Is there anyone who can stop the Seattle Seahawks?
oNE OBVIOUS FACT
While there are teams up and down the league showing a lot of potential with new offensive strategies and new weapons, it could be argued that none show more promise than the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Steelers were very impressive last season but fell in the divisional round of the play-offs to divisional rivals the Baltimore Ravens.
But injuries are playing a big part of their pre-season preparations and have forced their hand to sign an always controversial free agent.
It was recently announced that the team have signed quarterback Michael Vick and it goes without saying that the fans are not happy about it.
Vick has a controversial past with him once being arrested for being involved in an illegal dog fighting ring, and clearly Pittsburgh fans haven't forgotten that.
There was initial outrage from Steelers fans when the announcement was made and now it has taken a physical form.
One Steelers fan set up a online petition to simply say no to Vick in Pittsburgh which currently has over 23,000 signatures on change.com.
The originator of the petition had some very stern words about the former New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles star.
"Michael Vick is a convicted felon and no-class piece of crap. He is also a terrible QB which is why he has no team. Let's united as Steeler fans - as NFL fans - and stop him from playing on our team! Steelers fans united! Sign to keep Vick from ever wearing the coveted Steelers uniform!!" - Petition starters comments on Vick
The Steelers are already facing a tough start to the season with star runningback Le'Veon Bell and wide receiver Martavis Bryant both facing suspensions.
Bell and Bryant are suspended for two and four games respectively and will leave a big hole in the Pittsburgh offense.
Once back to full strength however, the Steelers are a lot of fans' outside choices to reach the historic Super Bowl 50.
