Which team between the Packers and Chiefs deserves the longer look to win Super Bowl 56?
Without a doubt, the Packers are a much better play than the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs lost to the other four division winners.
Tennessee beat Mahomes and his mates 27-3. The Bengals got by Kansas City 33-31, and the Bills blasted KC 38-20. Kansas City should beat the Steelers on Sunday. But after that, things get demonstrably tougher.
Green Bay is the class of the NFC. Not only that, but the road to the Super Bowl is likely to go through Lambeau, which means Green Bay has a home field edge. That’s something Kansas City doesn’t have.
Which teams under +1000 besides GB and KC have the best chances of winning the Super Bowl?
Every team under +1000 can win the Super Bowl. A couple stands out, though.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are healthy on defense and offense. Save for Chris Godwin’s absence, most of Brady’s targets are ready to roll. For the first time since Week 1, the entire Tampa secondary will start. Also, TB plays Philadelphia this weekend, which means the Bucs have the easiest road to the divisional playoffs.
The other team to consider backing is the Tennessee Titans, Derrick Henry will be healthy enough to play in the divisional round. The Titans have home field throughout the playoffs and the defense has become one of the top units in the league.
Buffalo can win the Super Bowl. But the Bills face rival New England in their wild card game. That contest could go either way. If the Bills beat New England, they may have to travel in the divisional round.
Which team among the Cowboys, Bengals, 49ers, Cardinals, and Patriots has the best shot of winning the Lombardi Trophy?
All five teams have the talent to win Super Bowl 56. Dallas has one of the best offenses in the league and a dynamite defensive line.
The Cardinals were the best team in the NFL until Week 13. In Joe Burrow’s last two games played during the regular season, the Cincinnati quarterback threw for a combined 971 yards and 8 touchdowns.
The Patriots have the pedigree, a smart quarterback, a good rushing attack, and, like always, a strong defense. All four of those teams can win the Super Bowl, but the team among the five that NFL handicappers should consider backing is the San Francisco 49ers.
Deebo Samuel might be the most unique player in the league. The combo running back and wide receiver can do it all. He’s impossible to cover even if you put a couple of defensive backs on him.
Jimmy Garoppolo appears to have gotten over the thumb issue and the defense is finally healthy. Also, SF made it to the 2020 Super Bowl. So the 49ers have experience.
Which underdog among the Raiders, Eagles, and Steelers is the best Super Bowl play?
It’s impossible to back the Eagles because they sort of lucked into the playoffs. 5 of Philly’s final 6 wins came against bad teams, the Giants and the WFT twice, and the Jets once.
The Raiders shouldn’t be good enough to beat the Chiefs, Bills, or Titans. Las Vegas can upset Cincinnati on Saturday. But that seems like their ceiling.
So if we turn our backs on the Raiders and Eagles, we’re left with the Steelers. Could 7-seed Pittsburgh possibly upset the Chiefs on Sunday and then take down the Titans in the divisional round?
Yes, Pittsburgh could. First, T.J. Watt, who had 22.5 sacks this season, is finally one-hundred percent healthy. Second, nobody will out coach Mike Tomlin. Third, Najee Harris has turned into an excellent NFL running back.
And finally, Big Ben and his teammates are motivated. The Steelers have more heart than any team in the NFL Playoffs. So if you want to take a shot on a huge underdog, go with Pittsburgh.
