Although they have been one of the less successful teams in recent years in the NFL in recent years, the Buffalo Bills have always had their presence felt throughout the league. Despite rough patches and their former cornerback, Vontae Davis, who retired during halftime, the Bills have shown relentless amounts of passion the way they play the game. Additionally, they better represent the state of New York as they are actually located in New York, unlike some other teams. With the spirit of New York behind them, it is clear as to why the Buffalo Bills never fail to excite and play their hearts out. It is a gift back to their ever so supportive fans.
Though they are no longer undefeated, the Rams certainly look every bit the part of a Super Bowl champion this season. With the recent success of the Golden State Warriors, the idea of the superteam has become a popular topic of discussion across sports. Many feel that it would be difficult to create a true superteam in the NFL, with about 25 starting positions and 53 total roster spots to fill. The Los Angeles Rams, however, are probably about as close to a superteam as one could find in the NFL. The roster is stocked with both talented veterans and young superstars, highlighted by quarterback Jared Goff, running back Todd Gurley, and defensive lineman Aaron Donald.
The team is also complemented by an elite coaching staff, led by young head coach Sean McVay and veteran defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. There have been numerous great teams in Rams history, such as the “Greatest Show on Turf”, which appeared in the Super Bowl in 2000 and 2002, winning the championship in 2000. However, this year’s team may just be the best one yet. This season, the Rams may just have what it takes to bring a Lombardi Trophy home to L.A.
It is difficult to leave more of a mark on a franchise than John Elway has left on the Denver Broncos. As a player, Elway was one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. When he retired, Elway held the record for the most wins by a quarterback, having led the Broncos to back-to-back Super Bowl wins in 1998 and 1999. Elway now serves as the team’s general manager, another role in which he has found significant success.
After the signing of Peyton Manning, the Broncos returned to the Super Bowl in 2014 and again in 2016, defeating the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50. Although the team has struggled since, the roster remains well-stocked in terms of talent, led by established stars like edge rusher Von Miller, cornerback Chris Harris Jr. and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders. The team also boasts exciting young players such as edge rusher Bradley Chubb, wide receiver Courtland Sutton and running back Phillip Lindsey. A return to the postseason looks to be in the near future for the Denver Broncos.
Under the lead of quarterback elite Alex Smith, cornerback Josh Norman, and future Hall of Fame running back Adrian Peterson, things seem to be shaping up well for the Washington Redskins. Currently ranked first in the NFC East, there is without a doubt that the Redskins have what it takes to make a strong push in the playoffs and possibly add another Super Bowl title to their previous three. Despite their rocky stretch of seasons, Redskins fans have been nothing but fully dedicated to being invested in their own. Yet, although this seems to have a negative effect as Redskins fans are notorious for booing their home team, it demonstrates the passion that they hold and the intense emotions they feel when they want their team to do even better.
When it comes to history, it’s hard to match the San Francisco 49ers. They are tied for second among all teams with 5 Super Bowl Wins. They dominated the league in the 80’s and 90’s, winning 5 Super Bowls in a 13 year span, including back to back wins in ‘88 and ‘89. Led by two of the greatest players of all time, Joe Montana and Jerry Rice, the Niners were an unstoppable force.
Following a playoff drought in the early 2000’s, the team returned to prominence under Jim Harbaugh, a brief but impressive run highlighted by a trip to the Super Bowl in 2012. Though the team has struggled lately, the future is bright in Santa Clara. With young franchise quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and emerging starts like tight end George Kittle, defensive end DeForest Buckner, and linebacker Fred Warner, a return to postseason glory seems imminent for the 49ers.
The sudden rise of the Minnesota Vikings is no coincidence. With the acquisition of Kirk Cousins and the emergence of the elite pass-catching duo of Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, the Vikings are gearing up for something special. As the season progresses, the Vikings will look to make a playoff push, and, to make it to the big stage, they’ll need their fans behind them.
The Chicago Bears are a franchise steeped in history, and with a new and improving roster, fans have been given the privilege of focusing on the future- not just the past. How did the Bears become so iconic? A history of frightening defenses and exciting skill-position players? Maybe. A series of SNL skits and an eccentric former coach? Probably. It really doesn’t matter how the Bears became a national brand- they are one. On any given Sunday at Soldier Field, you might find yourself running into Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, or even former President Barack Obama. With a sudden rise in talent, the Bears seem to be getting back on track, and fans everywhere are preparing to flock to the windy city to see “Da Bears” as their team gets closer and closer to emulating their former self.
