Right now, every single NFL team has one goal—Super Bowl XLIX next February in Glendale, Arizona.
Each team is focused on that one date and that one goal. Some teams may have a more realistic chance than others, but even the darkest of horses and most under of dogs will keep hope alive until it is mathematically snuffed out.
Coaches will preach mantras to their team about how underrated they are and how all of the nonbelievers should be shunned. Players will crow about how "this is the year" for the same exact reasons those 31 other teams are using. Fans will highlight all of the ways their respective teams are improved, seen—of course—through the rosiest of rose-colored glasses.
In the end, though, only two teams can make the Super Bowl, and only one team can win it.
With that in mind, here are B/R's preseason Super Bowl odds for the 2014 NFL season.
