It’s that time in America where 12 teams battle it out in the playoffs to get a chance to compete in Super Bowl 54 and become champions of the league. With two of the NFL’s strongest teams already knocked out, the New England Patriots and The New Orleans Saints, the Super Bowl is now anyone’s game.

For the past 15 of 16 seasons the Tom Brady lead New England Patriots have been a force to be reckoned with, but this year it came to an end. The Tennessee Titans ended the Patriots reign with a 20-13 victory. It was a loss that everyone was shocked to see. With the New Orleans Saints devastating loss to the Minnesota Vikings for the second year in a row, the two favorite teams for the Super Bowl are now eliminated. 

The teams remaining in the AFC Conference are the Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs, Tennessee Titans, and the Huston Texans. Today we will look at the Favorites to make the Super Bowl from the AFC side in our order of most likely to least. 

  1. Chiefs– Patty Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins , LeSean Mccoy. 24th ranked defense in the league. Patrick Mahomes isn’t human.
  2. Ravens– Lamar Jackson, Ravens placed fourth in YPG and third in PPG in the 2019 season.
  3. Houston Texans– Deshaun Watson’s ability to read a Defense. Deandre Hopkins arguably being the best receiver in the league.
  4. Tennessee Titans– Derrick Henry! Ryan tannehil leads the league in passer ratings and yards per attempt.
