Who is Going to Win the 2017 Super Bowl?

by Ernest Ronk

The 2017 Super Bowl only has a few teams that have a true chance of winning, and this article explains how you may select the team that is most likely to win. Your review of the teams in contention will remind you that the NFL is quite talented even though there are a handful of teams at the top of the heap. Consider which team you believe has the finest opportunity to win, and you may watch to learn if you were correct.

#1: New England Patriots

It is a fact that the Patriots are well within their rights to claim a spot in contention for a championship. They may have something fall in their way as they go, but they are a very good team that is quite well coached. Tom Brady has proven to be hot after coming off his suspension, and the defense is playing extremely well. All the stars have aligned for the Patriots again to make a run at a Super Bowl.

#2: Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons have a right to be here solely because their offense is so good. They have set the record for receiving yards in a game when Julio Jones went over 300, and Matt Ryan looks quite efficient in the pocket. The defense has improved, and they have a young head coach in Dan Quinn who knows what he wants from the team. The combination of a young coach and offensive talent will go quite a long way for this team.

#3: Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys has Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and Dex Bryant. They do not need much else because their offense is so good. They will start to plow through teams week after week without a thought as the young offense gets better, and there are many who believe the Cowboys may have reconfigured their big three just as they did with Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith.

#4: Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks will be a very good team for a long time simply due to Russell Wilson. He is quite talented, and he has a good supporting cast around him. The supporting cast has gone a long way to helping him achieve his goals of winning a Super Bowl, and they are now in contention every year. The defense is quite good, and Russell Wilson runs an office that is extremely efficient.

#5: Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz could be on his way to a stellar career that may include an appearance in the Super Bowl this year. He has come out of the gate very strong, and he is proving that rookies are capable of offering good performances to their teams. They may not be the best team in the league, but they are very solid because of Carson and his performance under center.

Choosing the proper team to win the Super Bowl requires quite a lot of work on the part of the handicapper. You must ensure you have selected wisely from the list of teams available, and you must watch for any change in their status. The team that wins the Super Bowl will do so with a combination of talent and luck. Each of the five teams listed has enough talent to win a Super Bowl, but they must have enough luck to perform well. Anyone who wishes to place bets on the Super Bowl must keep each of these things in mind as they make their selections. You will do quite well to bet on a team that has proven through eight weeks that it may contend for the Lombardi Trophy.

Biggest Surprises of the 2016-17 NFL Season

Biggest Surprises of the 2016-17 NFL Season

by Ernest Ronk

With the sixth week down in the 2016-17 NFL season and the seventh on the way, there have been a couple of surprises. Teams that usually aren’t on top have fallen into the playoff picture and teams that were once on top have fallen to the bottom. With the first month down and the second coming fast, here are the top surprises of the season so far.

Matt Ryan Emerges As The Early MVP Front Runner
There has been quite a bit of trash talk about this 31-year-old quarterback this off season, but Ryan has since then silenced those trash talkers by playing at an MVP-caliber level. During the first month of the season, he leads the Atlanta Falcons at a 3-1 start and has completed 72.1% of his passes for 1,473 yards, 11 touchdowns, only two interceptions and has a quarterback rating of 126.3.

The Carolina Panthers Are Coming Out On The Bottom
Last season’s undefeated Carolina Panthers were the team to look out for at the beginning of this season, but as it pans out, they look nothing but mediocre. They have already lost more games this season than they did last season in 2015. With their struggling offensive line and Cam Newton being out due to a concussion he suffered from in Week 4, they could wind up missing the postseason in 2016.

The Minnesota Vikings’ Success
Despite being without quarterback Teddy Bridgwater, running back Adrian Peterson and left tackle Matt Kalil to season-ending injuries, the Vikings somehow have managed to stay undefeated. Their defense is being considered as being in the same class as the Broncos and Seahawks, and their offensive has the potential to get even better as the season goes on.

The Los Angeles Rams Are A Legitimate Playoff Contender in 2016
This may shock a lot of football fans, but The Rams are becoming a serious contender for the playoffs this session; despite their awful loss in week one, 28-0, to the 49ers. After that loss, they then countered it by winning three games in a row, some of the top Super Bowl contenders in the league.

The Cleveland Browns Lead, The League In Rushing Yards
It may be funny to say, but it is true. Despite being win-less and being well on their way to the first overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft; The Browns somehow lead the league in total rushing yards after four weeks.

Jimmy Graham Is Playing As His Old Unstoppable Self
From 2011-14, Graham looked to be unstoppable with 355 caught passes for 4,396 yards and got 46 touchdowns, but once New Orleans willing parted with him, it looked as if Graham didn’t mesh with the Seahawks as much as he did with The Saints. There was even talk of him being put on the trade market this off season. He is now proved to be completely healthy and in the fourth week, he became the first tight end in Seahawks history to record back-to-back 100-yard receiving games. As his game begins to pick up with Russell Wilson, the offense of the Seasons will be difficult to contain.

With nearly the first half of the NFL season coming to an end, there are much more surprises to come and more game-changing things to happen.
