Post 2018 Superbowl Winner
A month ago I was tempted to place an online bet on the Cowboys (the odds were 10/1 or something), given their O-line, Prescott, Elliot and whatever they will get in exchange for Romo.

But then the Patriots started doing their free agency thing, the Raiders were eyeing Lynch, the Giants got Brandon Marshall, the Broncos might actually start with a QB this season,... And I don't know which team I consider the favourite to win it all this year.

Who do you think will be holding the Lombardi trophee come February ?

I won't predict until after the draft. If the Vikings can stay healthy and their OL shows some competency through out the year, they could make a run. I don't see Mat Ryan having a similar year to what he did last year, but he certainly could. And of course, GB will be in the mix as well.
It's a tough question for sure.

The NFC east will be interesting eagles
and giants both got better imo.

Carolina who knows ?

Arizona or Seattle in the west

NFC south. Atlanta most likely outside shot
Tampa

North Detroit I'm thinking unless our OL
gets better

AFC east. Patriots /Miami wild card

AFC west Raiders

AFC north. Steelers

AFC north Tennessee steps up

If the odds are even I'd have to bet on New England. Taking them out of the equation, it becomes pretty wide open. Special attention has to be paid to any team with an elite QB, and then I'd be looking at teams that are so strong in one area that they can impose their will on the opposition. The Cowboys and the run game could fit in that tier. The Vikings could also fit in that tier if they can take another step defensively. That's why I would be aggressive in dealing with the 4 areas of weakenss on the defense going into this year, 3tech, WeaksideLB, S, Nickel. They may have answers onboard already but those positions need to be addressed in some way for this team to take the next step.

Raiders going to be second or third in their own division. Won 5 games by a total of 11 points. Not including their OT win. They go from having bottom 5 strength of schedule to top 5. The Chargers picked up one of the best defensive coordinators in the league and have studs on both sides of the ball.

NFC is too close to pick this year. Lets say Vikes vs. Steelers/Chargers..../Patriots
