The American Football Conference is a murderous line-up of championship contenders. It’s crazy how many teams could even compete.
In addition to the teams listed above, we also can’t definitively rule out the Chargers, Browns or Steelers.
Kansas City is clearly the team to beat in the AFC; They have the best player in football, Patrick Mahomes, and are the defending champions. Miami was the hottest ticket in the first few months, scoring points for fun. Buffalo has ironed out some issues, but still needs to be taken very seriously. While the Bengals appear to have turned things around after a slow start.
NFC: Eagles, 49ers, Cowboys, Lions, Seahawks
