NFL: Early Super Bowl LV Favorites
With the Kansas City Chiefs winning Super Bowl LIV over the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 31-20 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida, it is never too early to talk about the possibility of teams winning it all the next season.
Kansas City will no doubt be heavy favorites to win it all next season where Super Bowl LV will be played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida. Who else could knock off the Chiefs?
The first team other than Kansas City that could win it all next season is the Baltimore Ravens. I don’t think Lamar Jackson will ever beat Patrick Mahomes because they play two different styles. He had one of the best-supporting casts in the NFL.
Just like Mahomes in his second season of the NFL, Jackson fell short of a Super Bowl title and Patrick Mahomes won it all this season. Maybe Lamar Jackson will be able to win a Super Bowl title in his third NFL season.
The second team other than the Chiefs that can win it all next season is the San Francisco 49ers. San Francisco was just a couple of plays and bounces away from winning their sixth Super Bowl title in franchise history, but they are going to have to wait another day for it.
This team is very young and Kyle Shanahan is one of the brightest minds in the NFL. Jimmy Garoppolo is still a very good quarterback and people need to stop doubting him and his game. We will see what happens moving forward with this football team.
The third team other than Kansas City that can win it all next season is the Philadelphia Eagles. Philadelphia was banged up all season long and the Eagles have been in the playoffs for the past three seasons. The Eagles recently won a Super Bowl title against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII by a score of 41-33.
Carson Wentz is one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL. This team has players when it is healthy and they need to sure up the back end of the defense. Doug Pederson is one of the best coaches in the NFL that no one appreciates.
The fourth team other than the Kansas City Chiefs that can win it all next season is the New Orleans Saints. I would expect Drew Brees to be back for one more season. If not, Taysom Hill will take over as the starting quarterback and New Orleans will be just fine moving forward. They still have Sean Payton as the head coach and their defense is still solid as well.
The fifth team other than Kansas City that can win it all next season is the Pittsburgh Steelers. Pittsburgh will have Ben Roethlisberger back next season at quarterback. Their defense is elite. Minkah Fitzpatrick changed the culture of this defense and they have T.J. Watt as well. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Diontae Johnson could be a solid one-two wide receiver combination. Mike Tomlin is also a very good head coach.
Other teams to keep an eye on New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills, Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys, Seattle Seahawks, Los Angeles Rams, and the Tennessee Titans.
