There are still a handful of months left before the Super Bowl takes place in Miami. Nonetheless, ESPN updated its Super Bowl favorites after just one week worth of regular-season action.
As usual, the New England Patriots will be contenders for this year’s championship. The addition of Antonio Brown gives Tom Brady another weapon to rely on.
New England might be considered the favorites to win the Super Bowl by many analysts, but ESPN is rolling with a different powerhouse from the AFC.
ESPN’s Football Power Index gives the Chiefs the best chance of making the Super Bowl. However, there are a couple of AFC teams in the mix.
Here are the five favorites to make the Super Bowl, via ESPN‘s Football Power Index
- Kansas City Chiefs
- New England Patriots
- Baltimore Ravens
- New Orleans Saints
- Los Angeles Rams
Baltimore is coming off a dominant win over Miami. Lamar Jackson proved that he’s more than just a runner, throwing for 324 yards and five touchdowns.
New Orleans nearly lost in heartbreak fashion against the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football. Wil Lutz bailed his team out by connecting on a 58-yard field goal for the win.
The Rams are another team that should be in the hunt this year, especially after nearly winning it all last season.
