NFL’s 100th season: Who will win Super Bowl LIV?
It was a lengthy wait for football.
And on Thursday, the NFL season started because the previous one finished: with crimes that were inept, stifling defenses and a lot of yellow flags.
Much like New England did at Super Bowl LIII to Los Angeles, the Green Bay Packers stifled the Chicago Bears to pick up the win of the season.
But as only the first game of a lengthy season, relevance that is just how much does it have?
We embark on a new NFL trip every year, then we begin with 32 teams. That is 32 teams and 1,700 players – give or take – with aspirations of winning the Super Bowl.
We end up with this New England Patriots Each Year. Or at least the Pats along with three other groups. In every one of the previous eight seasons, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick have led their group to at least the AFC Championship match. They’ve reached the Super Bowl in five and won three.
When we look ahead to that may come out on top in 2019/20, the conversation begins with New England, but what’s on the cards for everyone?
The New England Patriots should – deservedly – be at the top of every listing of power rankings and Super Bowl events.
They may have lost Rob Gronkowski to the Saints, Lions and Raiders, combined with Trent Brown, Malcom Brown and Trey Flowers to retirement . Yes pick N’Keal Harry is going to be a reduction on reserve and David Andrews is outside with blood ailments, but do each of those individuals matter in the grand scheme of things?
As long as Brady and Belichick are all about, the Pats will simply make things function.
The two sides that played out arguably the most interesting match of season – that a 54-51 win to the Los Angeles Rams within the Kansas City Chiefs – are expected to be teams this time around.
Patrick Mahomes, 2018 MVP, threw for 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns in his first time as the fulltime starter. What can he attain in two?
While there were concerns surrounding Jared Goff the Rams do not have any doubt he’s their man. Anticipate LA to keep their success provided that Sean McVay is the guy, after handing him a listing guaranteed contract for a quarterback. The shield is powerful enough to keep the Rams when Goff suffers.
Both Los Angeles Chargers and the New Orleans Saints, headed by long-time veterans Drew Brees and Philip Rivers – will have felt should’ve been’their season’ in points. Brees (40) and Rivers (37) will get their teams competing for so long as they playwith, but what does it take to go all the way?
There has to be a kind of concern to the Chicago Bears after their dreadful offensive display, particularly, the poor play of Mitchell Trubisky after falling to Green Bay in Week One. Their defense still played excellently, and they fell in opening week season. There is time for a turnaround.
Ezekiel Elliott for the Dallas Cowboys following his holdout absence’s return was crucial. They bring their core players back from last season and the only question is: how much can Dak Prescott consider them?
What do we expect this year? It depends on quarterback Carson Wentz’s wellbeing, but they are definite contenders. After a Super Bowl win in 2017, and shocking the Bears there is no doubt Philly could get to the promised land once more.
The Colts piped from the playoffs the Houston Texans this past year, but by no means if they are missed at the AFC playoff race. Deshaun Watson was exceptional returning with an ACL injury, and he will be simply aided by the addition of Laremy Tunsil.
The Green Bay Packers along with aaron Rodgers did it on Thursday with defense, however they’ve what is necessary to explode on offense too. A subsequent team collapse happened this past year and before Rodgers was injured in 2017, they had made the postseason in seven consecutive seasons. They’re very inclined to be backagain.
The same is anticipated for the Pittsburgh Steelers, who missed for the very first time in five decades in 2018. JuJu Smith-Schuster and James Conner are ready to fulfill the emptiness , although Antonio Brown and le’Veon Bell are all gone.
Together with Russell Wilson at the helm, the Seattle Seahawks are constantly in the combination. But it’s no doubt they’ve lacked something from the last two seasons – . They did not make the playoffs and lost their knockout game this past year. Is this?
Even the Atlanta Falcons and Jacksonville Jaguars had major dips in 2018, but are still predicted to return again this year – for reasons that are different. Atlanta are returning some players and were ravaged by accident. For Jacksonville, Super Bowl 52 MVP Nick Foles’ coming provides the quarterback they have lacked to them.
Lamar Jackson had a 6-1 regular-season list after taking over at QB for the Baltimore Ravens, but he had been’exposed’ . Can he perform there’s a blueprint to stop him?
Additionally in the AFC North, the Cleveland Browns have been the talk of this summer. Acquiring Odell Beckham Jr has been the move, and trust and expectation was constructing in Ohio. Will they eventually get to the playoffs after a absence?
The Minnesota Vikings were supposed to be’a quarterback away’, since they missed the playoffs however Kirk Cousins didn’t tip them last season. Strong defense and an improved game will keep them competitive, but it’s all in their QB.
When Cam Newton is’on’, he’s unstoppable. But last year he was hurt, along with the Carolina Panthers endured. Together with him fully healthy, they are immediately ready to challenge from the NFC.
Although the Tennesee Titans have a QB conundrum in the own, the Indianapolis Colts will suffer following the retirement of Andrew Luck.
The Buffalo Bills and New York Jets hope to take leaps in Josh Allen and Sam Darnold’s second decades, but they need to prove themselves in a division with the champions.
So need to improve, the San Francisco 49ers have been injury-struck last year. But there are still questions surrounding quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and who he is as a QB. The Denver Broncos may have a top defense this season, but’elite’ will probably Joe Flacco be in his first year?
In the last four seasons below Jay Gruden, the Washington Redskins have gone 7-9 and 9-7, 8-7-1, 7-9. This season is make or break. The Detroit Lions got worse under Matt Patricia within his effort, having achieved at least eight wins in three or four seasons. Which way will they proceed?
There are 3 teams with new head coaches – Cincinnati Bengals, that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Arizona Cardinals, who have potential, but changed trainers. Bruce Arians may require the time to flip things Zac Taylor has a major rebuilding task, and Kliff Kingsbury’s crime is a experiment – particularly with newcomer Kyler Murray at the helm.
If you are currently looking for entertainment, then look no further than the Oakland Raiders. They sent off their very best gift last season ahead of a revamp this time and it certainly has not gone swimmingly. What occurs together with Antonio Brown is anyone’s guess but there are signs of another tricky period here.
Even the New York Giants also look after dropping a few of the talents in Landon Collins and Beckham Jr set. Can he do it all himself, although saquon Barkley is the glowing, shining expect?
It would be naive to rule some other group out of the running to this year’s Super Bowl – this league is so unpredictable – but it’ll be a wonder if the Miami Dolphins even sniff the playoffs that year. Have left the present team, and They’re moving to secure a part of the future.
Who do you think wins Super Bowl LIV?
