It’s been less than two months since the Los Angeles Rams won the Super Bowl for the 2021 campaign, but it’s never too early to start looking ahead at things. Will the Rams be able to repeat for next year? That’s tough to say, as several teams will be in the hunt. In this piece, we take a look at things with our NFL futures picks for the 2022 season. Which team will take home the Lombardi Trophy?
Bills are the slight favorites to win the Super Bowl
As you probably would have been able to guess, the Bills are the slight favorites to win the Super Bowl next year. This team is always going to be among the favorites thanks to quarterback Josh Allen being behind center. Not only that, this defense is loaded and the other playmakers on offense are always ready to put on a show for Buffalo. They’re a fun team to watch.
With the Bills, they’ve been so close to the Super Bowl in back to back years. In 2020, they lost to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game. Then this past season, they lost to the Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Round, but the expectation was they could have won the AFC if they would have gotten by Kansas City. They were 13 seconds away from making that happen. Now, they want to improve the offensive line this offseason.
“First thing, I’m going to try and protect him,” Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane said on getting new linemen for Allen. “As I said earlier, I have to make sure the o-line is set and that we’re confident in them. But beyond that, always looking for the various pieces.”
According to the best-rated sportsbooks, the Bills hold the top NFL Super Bowl odds for next season at +700. Behind them are the Green Bay Packers at +750, while the Chiefs, Rams, 49ers and Broncos also have strong NFL odds too. The Broncos landing Russell Wilson has given them a boost in odds. With Buffalo, though, will they get the job done? Believe it or not, we’re going elsewhere for our champs for next season.
Aaron Rodgers will be ready to win another Super Bowl with the Packers
Come next season, Aaron Rodgers will be ready to win another Super Bowl with the Packers, as he isn’t ready to leave just yet. According to multiple reports, Rodgers signed a four-year extension with the team, making him the highest-paid player in history. Rodgers has won MVP in back to back seasons, so it’s no surprise the Packers broke the banks for him.
Green Bay looked ready to potentially win the Super Bowl this past season, but the team suffered a heartbreaking loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round. This opened up the door for the LA Rams to not only win the NFC, but the Rams then went on to win the Super Bowl too. This was devastating for Packers fans to see, especially with GB holding the No. 1 seed. Rodgers is motivated to bounce back, though.
“Hey everyone, just wanted to clear some things up; YES I will be playing with the Packers next year, however, reports about me signing a contract are inaccurate, as are the supposed terms of the contract I signed,” Rodgers posted on his Twitter account earlier this month. “I’m very excited to be back.”
With Rodgers back in the mix of things, the Packers hold +750 odds to win it all next season. Rodgers is also hoping to win his fifth MVP award, as he’s gotten the job four times. With Rodgers and Davante Adams back, it will be tough for this team to be stopped. That’s why we’re going with the Packers to win the Super Bowl. Agree?

Tom Brady’s return has the Bucs in the mix as well
On Sunday night, there was some major breaking news, as Tom Brady’s return has the Bucs in the mix as well. The team’s odds have flown up with Brady announcing on his Twitter page that he’s cutting his retirement short, after a little over a month, and he’s now ready to return to Tampa Bay next season. It will be Brady’s 23rd year in the NFL, which is wild to think about. He turns 45 this August.
“These past two months I’ve realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands,” Brady said in his official announcement. “That time will come. But it’s not now. I love my teammates, and I love my supportive family. They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. Unfinished business.”
While we think the Packers will end up winning the NFC and then the Super Bowl, don’t be surprised if the Bucs go on a deep run with Brady back in action. This will also likely result in Rob Gronkowski re-signing with the team too, which would be another major victory for the front office.
