When we last left the National Football League, the power had just come back on in the Superdome in New Orleans and the Baltimore Ravens were celebrating a Super Bowl XLVII victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Since that early February day, weve seen lots of changes around the league from superstar players switching teams, to new uniforms and logos. Weve even seen the grand re-arrival and exit of quarterback Tim Tebow with the New England Patriots. The question is which team is favoured to win Super Bowl XLVIII? The defending NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers are expected to be back in the mix again this season. Theyve added key players on both offence and defence in an attempt to get over the hump and capture their first title since 1995. They even grabbed receiver Anquan Boldin from the Ravens to strengthen their roster and weaken the team that beat them for the title at the end of last season. With a strong offence, defence and starting quarterback Colin Kaepernick entering his first full season at the helm, the Bay Area team looks strong. One of the biggest threats to their Conference crown comes from within the NFC West division, in the form of the Seattle Seahawks. Everything the 49ers do well, the Seahawks are also very proficient at, including running the read option with their mobile quarterback, in this case the versatile Russell Wilson. In the backfield, running back Marshawn Lynch is as physical as they come and dealing with him over four quarters tends to wear out even the best defences. The Seahawks will have to play without superstar acquisition Percy Harvin, who could miss the entire season with an injury, but they didnt have him last season either and came just a few plays short of playing in the Conference final. Always known as a strong regular season team, the Atlanta Falcons turned it up in last seasons playoffs and it took the biggest comeback in NFC Championship history to deny them a shot at the Super Bowl. Running back Steven Jackson is a great addition to a veteran core offence that boasts Matt Ryan at quarterback and future Hall of Fame tight end Tony Gonzalez. They will face improved competition from their NFC South division, but should find themselves in the playoffs with another real shot at getting all the way to the big game. Over in the AFC, the Denver Broncos behind Peyton Manning look loaded up and ready to take another crack at playoff success. After a rough start to last season, Manning and his new boys found a rhythm and 11 straight victories on their way to the top seed in the Conference. They were then erased in the division round of the playoffs by the eventual champion Ravens. With players like Wes Welker and Quinton Jammer now in the fold, the Broncos are going be tough to beat every night and a tough out in the post-season. Perennial contender New England Patriots are lining up for another shot at the crown as well. Though they have dealt with a lot of turmoil in the offseason, the team is now ready to put the controversies behind them and perform on the field. Quarterback Tom Brady will have to get used to not throwing the ball to Welker who jumped ship to the Broncos, but he has in the past had a history of making the players on the field with him much better. If he can find a way to elevate this group, they have the talent to be the last ones standing at the end of the season. There are many other teams that also find themselves in this conversation including the defending champion Ravens, Green Bay Packers and surging Cincinnati Bengals.
