Super Bowl LVII in 38 Days – Top Competitors

On February 12, 2023, the major event of the year, Super Bowl LVII, will be played at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

This will be the fourth Super Bowl in Arizona and the third in this stadium. It will almost certainly be the 18th straight Super Bowl that will be without a repeat champion — the longest streak in the game’s 57-year history. For this event in February 2023, NFL tickets will be sold out in no time!

What is more, this will be the first Super Bowl hosted by FOX’s core team of Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen. This will be Rihanna’s first time as a halftime star.

What other super storylines will there be? This will be resolved within the next few months. So, don’t miss your chance to get 2023 NFL super bowl tickets, and do not miss such a historical event.

To make you intrigued, here’s a look at the top (in our opinion) 15 contenders to reach Super Bowl LVII.

  1. Philadelphia Eagles

Their only weakness all season was their inability to stop the run. They’ve had rebounding miscalculations at times, and the teams that reached closest to beating Philadelphia Eagles stayed in the game with a robust rushing attack. They are outstanding in all other phases of the game.

  1. Kansas City Chiefs

Patrick Mahomes is an MVP and has more than enough offensive talent. But they suddenly became a team suffering from turnover. Their minus-4 turnover differential puts them at the bottom of the NFL. They turned the ball over 19 times, including Mahomes’ 11 interceptions. They won’t get away with it against better teams.

  1. Dallas Cowboys

Will Dak Prescott prove to be a championship quarterback? Overall, he’s been fantastic since returning from a thumb injury. His offense is now like a juggernaut. With a strong two-way offense and a stellar defense, the Cowboys don’t have a weak link. But Prescott has been strangely interception-prone, with five in the last 3 games and seven in the last 5. Things like that can’t happen in the playoffs against teams that will definitely make them pay.

  1. Buffalo Bills

The Bills QB looked like one more MVP candidate in the first half of the season. But ever since he dislocated his elbow on a tackle in the Week 9 loss to the Jets, he hasn’t looked the same. He’s still good and better than the others, but neither he nor Bill’s offense is as explosive as it used to be. They will need to find their old form to get through a loaded AFC.

  1. Cincinnati Bengals

Can they keep QB Joe Burrow upright? It looks like the answer is yes. He’s been sacked 35 times this season — fourth most in the NFL — but just six times over the last five games. It’s no coincidence that the Bengals won all five while Burrow averaged 271.2 yards and 10 touchdowns with just three interceptions. Now they click at every stage. If Burrow can get rolling, their offense will be as dangerous as any in the league.

  1. San Francisco 49ers

Do they stand a chance when quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is out for the season (presumably) with a broken leg, leaving the offense in the hands of Brock Purdy? The 49ers rank first in total defense (286.8 yards per game), first in passing defense (15.2), second in interceptions (14), and eighth in sacks (36). Honestly, Purdy played well, and the running game is strong, but the defense has to carry this team.

  1. Minnesota Vikings

Can their defense stop anyone in the air? The NFL’s worst defense (total and passing) has given up an average of 335.6 yards over its last five games. No wonder they are the first 10-3 team ever to be outscored by opponents. They did beat the Bills in overtime. But when they lost to the Eagles and Cowboys by a combined score of 64-10, it was a disturbing sign to their pass defense, which could really be a major problem even in the NFC.

  1. Miami Dolphins

Can they support Tua Tagovailoa? Not yet. In fact, they only rushed for 100 yards in four games all season. That put a ton of pressure on their quarterback. Even though he has been outstanding (with the results like 3,004 yards, 22 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions in 11 games). Moreover, the Dolphins have the most explosive receiver in the NFL (Tyreek Hill, 100-1460-6). But that could be tough for a one-dimensional team in the playoffs.

  1. Baltimore Ravens

Will Lamar Jackson be strong and healthy enough to play like Lamar Jackson? He was the NFL’s top defensive player through the first three weeks of the season, with 10 touchdown passes and two interceptions. He has thrown seven touchdown passes in the nine games since then, with five interceptions. Now he’s out with a dislocated knee. He’s expected to return before the end of the season. However, the Ravens won’t go far if he doesn’t play like he used to

  1. Los Angeles Chargers

Are they good enough to literally survive the playoffs? No legitimate contender has suffered more injuries this season, including defensive end Justin Herbert, receivers Mike Williams and Keenan Allen, defensive ends Rashon Slater and Trey Pipkins, tight end Gerald Everett, linebacker Joey Bosa, and others. They are beginning to heal, but their depth remains fragile. They are still missing some key pieces, but only time will tell.

  1. Washington’s Commanders

Can Taylor Heinicke avoid a big mistake in a big place? There’s no doubt he found some magic after taking over at quarterback from Carson Wentz. And so far, he’s even managed to avoid disaster for the most part, with just five interceptions in his first seven starts. But it plays on the edge and can be very inaccurate at times. He has a shooting style that can be an asset…until it isn’t.

  1. Tennessee Titans

Is Derrick Henry strong enough to carry the offense? King Henry is having an impressive season with 1,199 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns in 13 games. But he accounted for over 42% of their touchdowns and just under 40% of their yards. Ryan Tannehill is a mediocre defensive end with questionable receivers. It’s Henry or bust for the Titans.

  1. Seattle Seahawks

QB Geno Smith’s resurgence has been the surprise of the season, if not the decade, in the NFL. But as good as he is — eight games with more than 250 yards passing, multiple touchdowns passes in 11 of 14 games — he doesn’t get help from the defense. The Seahawks are giving up 27 points and 404.6 yards per game during their recent 1-4 slump.

  1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Does Tom Brady have enough left to lead another team to a title? He probably has to because the Bucks are the worst team in the NFL. They don’t even have 1,000 yards through 13 games. Six individual running backs have more than Tampa Bay’s 948 yards. If that doesn’t pick up, it will put a lot of pressure on the 45-year-old Brady to include him in the postseason — possibly the last time.

  1. New York Giants

Their running game was once their strength, but Saquon Barkley has been in a slump for the past month. They average just 180 yards passing per game and have one of the worst teams in the NFL. Their most reliable play has been running back Daniel Jones (usually a lifetime), but that’s unlikely to be enough to get the team on the road to the playoffs.
