There’s no one single factor to make Super Bowl predictions, but there are many factors that go into making a strong selection. First, consider the quarterback situation. Many people believe the Patriots will win because of Tom Brady’s performance, but there is a different take. A quarterback’s role in a Super Bowl depends on many factors, including his health, his attitude, and his team’s overall play. Patrick Mahomet and his emergence as a star quarterback will be key factors for his team’s success.
The Rams are a popular choice in this year’s NFC. Even with the absence of Odell Beckham and Andrew Whitworth, the Rams should be favored, even if they lost Von Miller and Robert Woods. Despite their losses, their offense will still have plenty of talent.
In addition to the Rams, the Lions have a chance to make the playoffs. Having an extra team in the NFC means a better chance for the Rams. Jared Goff will recreate his career outside of Sean McVay’s offense, but he won’t be able to match his stats from last year.
Buffalo Bills: The Bills have won their division the last two years and have one of the best rosters in the NFL. However, the New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins aren’t far behind them. The Miami Dolphins added a bunch of speed this offseason but their secondary has injuries. The Tennessee Titans, the AFC South champion, have an inferior talent level compared to the New England Patriots.
Tom Brady: Despite being the favorite, the Rams will be up against the odds on Thursday night. As a result, their quarterback is a long shot to win the Super Bowl. They’ll be favored over the Chiefs. If Josh Allen can turn around a power shift, they should be able to win the game. However, the Chiefs have Patrick Mahomes and he’s their kryptonite.
The Saints’ defense is built to deal with deep receiving units. The defensive line led by ends Marcus Davenport and Cam Jordan disrupts the offensive line. Cornerbacks Demario Davis and CB Marshal Lattimore should have no trouble shutting down the best receivers. Winston also wins the MVP award, which may be the biggest upset of the Super Bowl.
Josh Allen: Another quarterback with high playoff odds is the Bills’ Josh Allen. His physical playing style and ability to throw long will keep the defense on its toes. Bill Belichick knows that Mac Jones is capable of handling more responsibility. In addition, he’s young and has excellent arm talent.
Among the Rams’ offensive weapons, the Rams have Aaron Donald, who’s rushed for over four yards every game in the playoffs. Von Miller and Leonard Floyd will help, too. With those weapons, the Rams should be able to exert constant pressure on Joe Burrow. In addition, Jalen Ramsey should be able to follow Ja’Marr Chase around the field. For the Bengals to have a chance at winning, Burrow will have to play nearly perfect.
