2022: The Top Five Contenders for the Super Bowl

With the 2022 NFL season now well underway, we have gained some useful insights into which teams are likely to contest the Super Bowl next February.

The Buffalo Bills are the favourites with NFL lines site Betway to win the title, but several other teams have the ability to lift the prestigious trophy.

Read on as we assess the chances of five teams we believe would be worthy contenders to win the Super Bowl this season.

Buffalo Bills

Former NFL star Santonio Holmes recently backed the Bills to finish in the top five in the NFL and it is difficult to argue with his viewpoint.

The Bills made a flying start to the new season, recording comprehensive victories over the Los Angeles Rams and Tennessee Titans.

An unfortunate road defeat against an impressive Miami Dolphins team in their most recent outing has not dampened the belief that the Bills are potential Super Bowl winners.

Philadelphia Eagles

The 2017 champions have reached the play-offs in four of the past five seasons and look a good bet to progress a long way this time around.

Victories over the Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings and Washington Commanders have fired the Eagles to the top of NFC East.

While there are plenty of other Super Bowl contenders in the NFC, the Eagles undoubtedly have the ability to contest the big game next February.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Buccaneers could emerge as genuine title contenders this term, despite slipping to a defeat in their most recent outing against the Green Bay Packers.

While injuries and suspensions have had an impact on the team’s performances, their offensive unit does need to step up on what they have shown to date.

However, with legendary quarterback Tom Brady eager to end his NFL career on a high note, it would be foolish to underestimate the Bucs’ chances of success this season.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs have been one of the standout teams in the NFL over the past four seasons and are strongly fancied to make another deep play-off run.

While they are another team that has work to do offensively, the Chiefs’ coaching staff have the know-how to get them firing over the coming weeks.

Two wins from three matches without being at their best highlights a few minor tweaks could soon have the Chiefs blowing their opponents away.

Green Bay Packers

The Packers have romped home in NFC North over the past three years, posting an impressive 39-10 regular season record during that period.

However, they have subsequently failed to make it past the NFC Championship game and will need to find a way to overcome their issues in important matches.

The recent 14-12 win in Tampa Bay demonstrated what the Packers can do when they put their minds to it and they should be in the mix when the play-offs come around.
