In 2022, the Los Angeles Rams won the Super Bowl champions after taking out the Cincinnati Bengals, which was the first Super Bowl win for the Rams in around 40 years. However, a lot has changed in the time since the last Super Bowl, with several other teams looking like strong contenders for the best team of the year award in 2023. Before the new season gets underway, it is important to look back at the previous season to understand each team’s performance and strength. This is especially important for those who partake in NFL betting and want to have the best chance of accurate predictions in the new NFL season.
Kansas City Chiefs
The Kansas City Chiefs are regarded as being one of the strongest teams in the NFL currently after finishing the 2022 season with the most points in the league. Many thought that with the loss of Tyreek Hill, the team wouldn’t perform as well however, thanks to star Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs have been able to pull off a fantastic season. At just 27 years old, Patrick Mahomes looks likely to pick up another NFL MVP award which will be the second in his career.
The Kansas City Chiefs played in the AFC West and claimed victory in their division, making it seven times in a row they have achieved this. In addition to this, because they have the number one seed, they also have a relatively easy path to the Super Bowl, with the home advantage increasing their chances of winning it all compared to some of the other teams. The Chiefs recently won the Super Bowl in 2020, and many of the players are still playing for the team, so it is easy to see why many people don’t doubt their ability to do it again, especially after such a strong season.

Just one year ago, the Cincinnati Bengals were considered strong contenders for winning the Super Bowl. After a strong comeback in the second half of the last season, they certainly have a case for taking the title. The Cincinnati Bengals finished their last season with eight wins in a row and won 10 out of their last 11 games, which enabled them to win the AFC North. However, the Bengals are not without weakness; many people have questioned their defensive ability after losing to teams such as the Bills, the Giants, the Dolphins, and the Baltimore with a double-digit lead.
Ultimately, it will be a question of whether or not the Cincinnati Bengals will be able to sort out their structure going into the next season that will decide if they stand a chance of turning things around to be crowned the team of the year.
The Tennessee Titans were the defending champions of the AFC South and looked set to win the 2022 AFC South; however, due to an injury picked up by Ryan Tannehill, the Titans went on to lose seven games in a row ruining their chances of picking up a playoff spot. The Jacksonville Jaguars had a miraculous turnaround winning their last 8 games and winning the AFC South after victories against the Cowboys, the Ravens, and twice against the Titans.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have shown they have the ability to play at the top level for consecutive games, but it will be a question of whether or not they will be able to maintain this level of play going into the next season.
When it comes to favorites to win the Super Bowl, the Buffalo Bills are a team that many believe can be victorious. However, the Buffalo Bills have had some uncertain moments, such as several injuries for key players and interceptions during important games. Despite this, they still manage to be regarded as one of the NFL’s top teams and are strong contenders for winning the next Super Bowl.
