Current Super Bowl 2022 Favorites

There’s a notable shift in this week’s odds right at the top of the board. The Chiefs have fallen to third on the list while other squads continue their ascent. Here’s how things are looking for the current Super Bowl 2022 favorites.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers ()

The Bucs were clicking on all cylinders on Sunday in a 45-17 beatdown of the Dolphins. The team can have its way with lesser foes, but they’ve had a tougher time when the competition level steps up. This week brings a date with the Eagles in Philadelphia.

Buffalo Bills ()

The Bills are riding a four-game winning streak and have outscored opponents by a margin of 156-41 while doing so. Top NFL MVP odds candidate Josh Allen and the rest of the cast from Buffalo are looking like the real deal as they get set to take on the Titans. The Bills shot to leave the “never won a Super Bowl” list grow better by the week.

Kansas City Chiefs ()

The Chiefs bid to make it to their third straight Super Bowl is not looking promising. A 2-3 start was far from expected. Patrick Mahomes is having a hard time getting rabbits out of the hat these days, while the defense is among the most porous in the league.

Los Angeles Rams ()

The Cardinals provided Los Angeles with a reality check in Week 4, but the Rams got back on track with a solid road win over the Seahawks on Thursday Night Football. They’ll be on the road for three of the next five in advance of a Week 11 bye.

Green Bay Packers ()

Green Bay has bounced back nicely from the opening week defeat to the Saints with four straight wins. However, Sunday’s victory over the Bengals was a bit too close for comfort as they needed overtime to pull it off. A road trip to face the Bears is up next.

Baltimore Ravens ()

Speaking of overtime, the Ravens are now 1-1 when the game goes to extra time this season after Monday night’s thrilling win over the Colts. The team takes a four-game winning streak into a big home showdown with the Chargers on Sunday.

Arizona Cardinals ()

The last undefeated team in the NFL continues to get it done, but it took quite the effort to get past the 49ers last week. Next up is a challenging road date with the Browns, followed by two straight at home against the Texans and Packers.

Cleveland Browns ()

The offense came to life in Sunday’s trip to Los Angeles, but the Browns defense saw its strong start to the year become a thing of the past in a 47-42 loss to the Chargers. Cleveland welcomes the undefeated Cardinals to town this week.

Los Angeles Chargers ()

The Chargers are on top of the AFC West with a mark of 4-1. The club’s play to date suggests that they’re legit, but a really tough test looms in this week’s road date with the Ravens in advance of a Week 7 bye.

Dallas Cowboys ()

Is America’s team back? Four straight wins are leading many people to believe that’s the case. The offense is humming while scoring 30+ points in four of five games, while the defense has shown massive improvement over last season.

2022 NFL Playoff Contenders

There are only 14 total playoff spots available. If we assume that the 10 teams in the contenders list will make it happen, that leaves the below eight clubs doing battle for the remaining four slots.

Tennessee Titans ()

The Titans showed what they’re capable of with a double-digit win on Sunday. However, that came at the expense of a Jaguars team that’s chock full of issues. A Monday Night Football date with the Bills looms large, followed by four in a row against playoff hopefuls.

San Francisco 49ers ()

The 49ers were among the preseason Super Bowl favorites, but three straight losses has led to a mass exodus off of the bandwagon. A bye in Week 6 could be just the prescription to help fix what’s ailing the club from San Francisco.

New Orleans Saints ()

After trading wins and losses for the first four weeks, the Saints got back in the win column with a road victory over Washington. They’re off this week before hitting the road for a Monday Night Football affair with the Seahawks in Week 7.

Minnesota Vikings ()

Outside of a big win over the Seahawks in Week 3, the Vikings seem to have a knack for being involved in games that aren’t settled until late. The team pulled out a stunner over the Lions this week to push the record to 2-3.

Denver Broncos ()

After a 3-0 start at the expense of lesser foes, the Broncos have come back to earth with two straight defeats to the Ravens and Steelers. A big showdown with the Raiders this week could help provide some clarity on the competitive AFC West race.

Las Vegas Raiders ()

Interim head coach Rich Bisaccia has quite the tough week up ahead. The Raiders have lost two in a row and will be endlessly peppered with questions about the resignation of Jon Gruden. A road win over the Broncos on Sunday would help to turn the page.

Seattle Seahawks ()

The Seahawks are 2-3, take up residency in the tough NFC West, and will be without the services of Russell Wilson for several weeks. The forecast in Seattle isn’t looking great as they prepare for a visit from the Steelers.

New England Patriots ()

The Patriots were big favorites over the Texans this week, but they had to fight for every yard to eke out a win. At 2-3, the club still has time to mount a run, but the focus for now is on a visit from a tough Cowboys team.

2022 NFL Playoff Wannabes

We’re over a quarter of the way through the NFL regular season, so those with legitimate postseason ambitions really need to start getting it together. A few of the below clubs look like they’re built for the task, but others have lots of questions swirling around.

Carolina Panthers ()

After starting out at 3-0, the Panthers were receiving plenty of hype. Two straight defeats later and the narrative has shifted in Carolina. The return of Christian McCaffrey could help the offense get back on track.

Indianapolis Colts ()

The Colts were running away with Monday night’s game over the Ravens. Then they completely collapsed and lost in overtime. It’s already starting to feel like it has been a long season in Indianapolis.

Pittsburgh Steelers ()

Heading into Sunday’s home game with the Broncos, there was tons of chatter about Ben Roethliesberger no longer being the best choice to lead the way in Pittsburgh. After he threw for 253 yards and two scores in the win, the team is now looking ahead to the Seahawks.

Philadelphia Eagles ()

While the overall record is only 2-3, there have been some encouraging signs in Philadelphia. They get the Buccaneers on this week’s edition of Thursday Night Football so we’ll get some clear-cut answers on where things stand for the Eagles.

Chicago Bears ()

An upset road win over the Raiders pushes the record to 3-2 for the Bears. The team has a really tough stretch upcoming with four straight against potential playoff teams. Judgment can be reserved until we see how that shakes out.

Cincinnati Bengals ()

The Bengals made the visiting Packers work for an overtime win on Sunday, but the bottom line is that the team is now 3-2. Cincinnati will be on the road for the next three in a row, but two of the trips are to take on the Lions and Jets.

Washington Football Team ()

After being the default winner of the NFC East a season ago, it was expected that Washington could take a leap forward this year. Instead, they’ve regressed. An upcoming stretch of Chiefs, Packers, and Broncos doesn’t exactly point to a turnaround.

Miami Dolphins ()

Since pulling out a 1-point win over the Patriots, the Dolphins have lost four in a row. Even more concerning, three of the defeats have been by double digits. Miami will attempt to right the ship in this week’s London game against the Jaguars.

Atlanta Falcons ()

After looking downright awful in two straight defeats to start the season, the Falcons have started to turn it around while winning two of three. They get this week off to reflect before returning for a Week 7 road date with the Dolphins.

New York Giants ()

A double-digit road defeat to the Cowboys was bad enough, but New York also exited the game with a rash of injuries. That’s far from an ideal situation as they have a daunting four-game stretch upcoming in advance of a Week 10 bye.

Teams Preparing For 2022 NFL Draft

The teams jockeying for position in the race for the top pick in next year’s NFL Draft were all on the losing end once again in Week 5. However, two of the four teams are at least showing signs that building blocks are forming.

New York Jets ()

The Jets travelled to London for a winnable game against the Falcons in London. They were outplayed in all phases to drop to 1-4 on the year. The bye week should serve as an inflection point for what’s going on in the Big Apple.

Houston Texans ()

The Texans gave the visiting Patriots all that they could handle on Sunday before coming up short in the end. It’s a challenging spot for head coach David Culley, but the team is prepared and coming to play each week.

Detroit Lions ()

Someday, the bounces will start going in favor of the Lions. The 0-5 team has suffered a pair of heartbreakers over the past three weeks. If they continue to fight as they have, the first win may come when we least expect it.

Jacksonville Jaguars ()

An 0-5 start and ongoing questions about the effectiveness of head coach Urban Meyer is the situation at hand for the Jaguars. Perhaps a trip across the pond for a date with the Dolphins can serve as an opportunity for a new beginning.
