With the new NFL season fast approaching, we’re getting in early with our Super Bowl predictions ahead of what promises to be another fascinating campaign.
Following some huge free agency moves and a typically intriguing draft, all the pieces are in place as teams chase the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles will host Super Bowl LVI and these are our picks to be involved:
BUFFALO BILLS @ 11/1
Tying star quarterback Josh Allen down to a six-year $258million contract extension puts the Bills in great shape to go for glory and finally claim a first title triumph, having lost four straight finals in the early 1990s. “Whatever it takes for us to win is what I’m willing to do,” declared Allen of his new deal. Buffalo addressed all their key needs in free agency and the draft and can go one better than when beaten by Kansas City in the AFC Championship game.
LA RAMS @ 12/1
Tampa Bay Buccaneers became the first team to win on home turf last season and the Rams could well achieve the same feat. New quarterback Matthew Stafford looks the perfect fit for Sean McVay’s high-octane offensive scheme. A solid offensive line and strong core of wide receivers should make this team fun to watch again. Manchester United’s owners the Glazer family got to celebrate in Tampa and this time it could be Arsenal chief Stan Kroenke in the limelight.
TENNESSEE TITANS @ 20/1
The Titans picked up 11 wins last season before losing out to Baltimore in the Wild Card round and will again rely heavily on stellar running back Derrick Henry and underrated quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Making a big trade to get wide receiver Julio Jones gives them an immediate upgrade in that department, while defensive issues have been addressed up front and at cornerback. Being in a moderate AFC South division should ensure a smooth run to the play-offs and then anything is possible, so this is a value pick from the Super Bowl odds.
