The NFL playoffs are here, and we know which teams are going all in for the big Super Bowl win. So, which teams are the most likely to win?
SBNation.com has put together a ranking of each NFL team in the playoffs and their chances to win the Big Game. I personally would have put the Philadelphia Eagles are No. 1, but they’re not.
According to the story, the Kansas City Chiefs are No. 1. Of that team, the outlet says, “The Chiefs are the betting favorite to emerge as the Super Bowl champion for a reason. The 14-3 Chiefs are loaded and look primed for a serious run at the Lombardi Trophy. This team is built for postseason play and, of course, it starts with quarterback Patrick Mahomes. The runaway favorite to win his second NFL MVP award (he’s just 27) has been brilliant this season. Any team that beats Kansas City this postseason will have to find a way to stop Mahomes and that’s a tall task. Find the full list here.
The Buffalo Bills are No. 2, followed by the Cincinnati Bengals at No. 3 and, my pick, Philly at No. 4. “While not taking anything away from the jobs done by GM Howie Roseman, head coach Nick Sirianni, and quarterback Jalen Hurts, the biggest thing working in Philadelphia’s favor this season is timing thanks to a weaker-than-usual NFC,” SBNation.com states. “Despite losing two games late in the year with Hurts sidelined with a shoulder injury, the Eagles kept their heads above the Vikings and 49ers and got the benefit of a bye week and homefield advantage in the playoffs.”
