Congratulations to the Baltimore Ravens for defeating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII.
So, what's next?
That's what lots of people want to know, right? Thirty-one other teams don't get to bask in the glory of a Super Bowl run. They have to look to the future.
Let's take a second and realize what this isn't. This isn't an exercise in prognostication. I'm not picking through who I think is going to land a great free agent or a great draft class.
I'm also not playing doctor and picking who gets to come back healthy and who doesn't. This is what happens if the next season were starting today and everyone were healthy again.
The other thing this isn't is listing the teams in order of how good they'll be next season. A team might have a great chance to get to nine or 10 wins, but next to no chance at winning the Super Bowl.
So, what's the criteria for winning a Super Bowl a year away? Mostly cohesiveness, solid quarterback play and having climbed toward that mountaintop already.
Elite teams are elite for a reason, and they tend not to fall off the map or come out of nowhere very easily. There's some great up-and-coming teams that may need to wait their turn.
Here are the odds for each NFL team to win next year's Super Bowl.
