The 2023 NFL season kick-off with the game between the reigning Super Bowl Champions, Kansas City Chiefs and the Detroit Lions. Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City is the venue of this inaugural clash.

The Chiefs are the favorites to win/defend the title, and add their third Super Bowl under Andy Reid’s guidance and Patrick Mahomes’ leadership. Of course, it would be unfair not to mention the tight end Travis Kelce, one of the best in his position of all time. We can say that the Mahomes we know today wouldn’t exist without Kelce’s help. With a potent offense and a very good defense, the Chiefs have firmly established themselves as the team to beat. Their explosive playmaking ability and remarkable consistency make them firm favorites to repeat their title run.

Philadelphia Eagles came one step short of lifting the Vince Lombardi trophy last year. No, they aren’t discouraged but fueled by the loss against the champs, so quarterback Jalen Hurts, and the boys want to go back and repeat everything with the difference that they plan to win the title in the end. There are some young studs in the defense, which could be very harsh this year, and overall, the team kept the same level of quality.

Led by their vibrant quarterback, Josh Allen, the Buffalo Bills aim to finally go all the way. The franchise from Buffalo has always been one step short of reaching the Super Bowl, which is becoming frustrating for the fans and players. With a solid defensive unit and an explosive offense, bolstered by Stefon Diggs’ receiving skillset, the Bills are emerging as one of the top contenders for winning the trophy. They possess the necessary tools to make a Super Bowl push.

Kyle Shanahan and his 49ers need just a little luck. Nothing more. The team has endured unreal jinxes in the past, with them lacking some of the top players in the most critical moments. Nick Bosa is the top star, with the ruthless defender having the potential to become one of the best ever in his position. Shanahan’s creative offense will once again harass the rivals in the league, and with a little bit of luck, the 49ers could end up on top.

Aaron Rodgers came to the New York Jets, and with him, the pressure of winning the Super Bowl. The Jets have both the last Offensive and Defensive Rookies of the Year, and besides Rodgers, received another upgrade in the form of the experienced rusher, Davlin Cook. With Rodgers’ magic, we could easily see the Jets on top of the NFL.

Cincinnati Bengals, LA Chargers, Baltimore Ravens, all of these teams appear to present a significant threat to the Chiefs. Burrow and the boys have an aura that hasn’t been seen in the NFL, so the Bengals stand as one of the teams who can play under any given circumstances and win. They were too young and inexperienced two years ago when they lost to the Rams in the Super Bowl, but now, the franchise from Ohio has all the resources to reach the throne.

Ravens and the Chargers have the quality, but the pressure upon their superstars, Lamar Jackson and Justin Herbert, is something that could crush this team. Jackson was the former NFL MVP, yet he never did anything in the playoffs, while Herbert possesses fantastic weapons in the attack and is expected to become the new Aaron Rodgers. His rookie year set the bar high, which is not a problem.

About the dark horses. LA Rams are still present, alive and kicking. Don’t forget, Aaron Donald, Matt Stafford, Cooper Kupp, all these guys are elite. We also take the Cleveland Cavaliers into consideration, with DeShaun Watson as the QB and the top running back duo in the league, Chubb-Hunt.

In our personal opinion, the teams from the NFC could be in a bit better situation because the conference is weaker than before, with plenty of talent shifting to the AFC. It’s easy to give any prognosis, but the 49ers look like a team with the best chances, even though they have a youngster at the QB position. Brock Purdy showed that he has that Tom Brady mentality. Combined with the fact that he isn’t scouted enough, this could be a jackpot.
