The 2022/23 NFL was a highly anticipated one and it is safe to say that it didn’t disappoint. And now that it is over, everyone is anticipating the next Superbowl.
We know the date, time, and venue, and every team is preparing to put in their best to clinch the Super Bowl. The fans and bettors, on the other hand, are already making predictions and reading about NFL future picks so that they can place their future bets. In short, no one wants to miss out!
We are also watching the happenings and everything going on behind the scenes, so it is never too early for a prediction. And, without further ado, here are the top five early contenders for the 2024 Super Bowl.
1. Kansas City Chiefs
To top our list, we have none other than the Kansas City Chiefs. The most obvious reason is that they are the defending champions. The team defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in a tough matchup to clinch the 2023’s installment of the Super Bowl.
However, beyond their previous performances, the Chiefs continued the season in a strong fashion and showed us that their win was not a fluke. They finished on top of the AFC West table with 14 wins and only 3 losses while the Chargers who were second on the table had 10 wins and 7 losses.
To strengthen their chances, the Chiefs still have their star quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, Super Bowl LVII’s MVP who scored three touchdowns and led the team to their victory.
As it stands, everyone seems to be in great shape and most fans are expecting them to keep up with the pace and win it for the third time in less than five years.
2. Philadelphia Eagles
Next on our list, we have the Super Bowl LVII’s runner’s up, the Eagles. While they also had an impressive 2022/23 season, they fell short at the end after losing to the best.
While many are quick to write them off, we like to look at it differently. In our books, they are seemingly more motivated than others with one of the reasons being that they lost the last one by a close margin.
Since they won their first Super Bowl in 2018, the team constantly shows that they have all it takes to do it again. Also, with their impressive run of 14 wins in the NFC East division, we expect nothing short of a spectacular performance for them in the new season.
And as for their player arsenal, they still have the likes of Jalen Hurts and Jason Kelce in the squad who are still hungry for wins. We would surely keep them on our radar.
3. San Francisco 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers are your typical definition of old glory in sports. Recently, the team has had great performances, but it is never enough to clinch the Super Bowl.
They have the second most Super Bowls in the history of the sport, which seems ironic considering that they have not won it recently. But if you don’t know, the team has a relatively good history with five Super Bowls to their name.
And looking at the 49er’s performance last season, there may be light at the end of the tunnel for them in Super Bowl LVIII. We just have to wait and see!
4. Buffalo Bills
It was only a matter of time before we got to the Bills because they had an impressive performance in their AFC East division last season. And they firmly clinched the division.
With 13 wins, 3 defeats, and their impressive seven-game winning streak, they did more than enough to lead the likes of the Dolphins, Patriots, and Jets in their division. And we think they are ready to challenge for the Super Bowl.
Historically, Buffalo Bills have not had the best of luck with winning the Super Bowl. In fact, they have none to their name. But it is subject to change if they put on a good performance like the 2022/23 season.
5. Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals were the 2022 Super Bowl LVI runners-up and sadly, they have never won it before. But it is looking brighter for them each year.
Last season was great for them, and if they can start the new season strongly, they can make history.
The Football universe as a whole is looking to see what they have for us, and with the likes of Ja’Marr Chase, Joe Burrow, and other top players, we believe it will be worth it!
As it stands, predictions for Super Bowl LVIII are still a coin toss and no one is 100% certain. However, we have strong reasons to believe it will be within the five teams we outlined. So, fasten your seatbelts, we are in for an interesting ride, and it will be fun to see how it plays out.
