6 Teams on the Verge of a Super Bowl Run in the Near Future

It's every NFL player's dream to have a chance to play in the Super Bowl.

Better yet, to win one.

We are preparing for a Super Bowl rematch, something not seen since Super Bowl XXX with the Cowboys and Steelers. Despite this being a rematch, it is something that seems to be more rare in today's NFL and that got me to thinking.

Since 2000, there have been 15 teams to enter the world's greatest football stage. In the 1990s, there were 10 different teams go to the Super Bowl. Teams now have the capability of getting to the Super Bowl more so now than in years past.

Let me state up front: I have left off some teams who have been steady playoff contenders in the past few years like the Ravens, Jets, Chargers and Eagles. This is based on new face-type teams who in the last year or two have emerged as possible Super Bowl contenders.

Here are six teams that I believe could make a Super Bowl run next year, or the year after that. (I do not want to project any further than that. I am simply looking at the potential of the next two years.)

If you disagree, please be civil in your opposition, and perhaps reinforce it with statistics or evidence. This is simply one man's thoughts in a sea of opinions.
