In this piece, we will attempt to break down the three best-looking teams in the NFL. Talent, winning games, and most importantly experience will be key factors in determining the Super Bowl contenders this season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Super Bowls and Tom Brady are nothing new at this point. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are one of the Super Bowl favorites in all of the latest online football betting markets. Offensive weapons are stacked all over the field for Brady and he has proved he can still get the ball to them despite being 44 years old. It may even be possible that Tom Brady is in the best shape of his life nearing the end of his career. The biggest advantage this team has is experience. Brady and Gronkowski are more than used to winning, but this team is the defending Super Bowl Champions.
Something that could harm the team’s chances to win Super Bowl LVI is the team’s questionable secondary. Injuries have hindered this team’s defensive backs so far this year. While the team did sign Richard Sherman that doesn’t look like the ideal fix at the moment. Carlton Davis’ eventual return from injured reserve will do wonders.

Los Angeles Rams
The Los Angeles Rams traded for Matthew Stafford in the offseason and right now the move looks like it paid off and more. Offensively and defensively this team looks like the real deal heading toward Super Bowl LVI. This team even has a win over the defending Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The playmakers on both sides of the ball are some of the best players at their position in the NFL.
Arizona exposed the clear weaknesses of this team. While the top playmakers are great the team did mortgage the future and some depth to get and keep those players. At his best Matthew Stafford plays like an MVP, but sometimes his arm gets away from him. This team will need him to be on the top of his game if they hope to make it to America’s biggest game. The Rams want to be playing in Super Bowl LVI.

The Kansas City Cheifs are down and for now, the AFC is up for grabs. Buffalo looks like the team capable of taking the crown. Josh Allen and the offense have found their groove, but more importantly, the defense has looked like a top ten unit so far in the early part of the season. The Week 1 hiccup against the Pittsburgh Steelers is a thing of the past. Last year the team was just one game shy of playing for a championship, but the Kansas City Cheifs proved too much.
Two things are likely to get in the team’s way this season. A lack of experience on defense and Patrick Mahomes once again. It seems to reason the Cheifs will figure out their problems and when they do the Bills will have to go through them to make it to Super Bowl LVI. Is Josh Allen capable of winning that game? We don’t know yet.
