Ranking the NFL's Top 10 Super Bowl Contenders

Which team will raise the Lombardi Trophy in 2014?

Though we're still 92 days away from kickoff of the 2013-14 NFL season, it seems appropriate to begin thinking about the top contenders to win the Super Bowl. While the Baltimore Ravens were able to make a spectacular run to capture the Lombardi trophy, they were hit badly by free agency. In this slide show, I'll take a look at which teams are poised to make their own run at a championship.

My criteria for ranking these teams aren't exactly scientific, but I'll evaluate them based on:

  1. Additions via free agency and the draft
  2. Quarterback play
  3. Expected development of returning roster players
  4. Schedule

As the Ravens reminded us, the Super Bowl winner can come out of nowhere when playoff time comes around. That being said, I will contend that the Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons are the favorites at this juncture.
