The teams that met in Super Bowl LII back in February – the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots – have the best odds of making it back to Super Sunday next February.
That’s why, when asking a panel of NFL experts about which team is best set up to make multiple Super Bowl runs, ESPN excluded the Eagles and Patriots from the discussion since they were obvious choices.
With Philadelphia and New England out of the equation, the panel – which was made up of Mike Clay, KC Joyner, Mike Sando, Aaron Schatz, and Kevin Seifert – had to pick from the remaining 30 NFL teams and the selections they made might surprise you.
Thanks to a rebuilt defense and a balanced attack that’s led by veteran QB Drew Brees, Clay thinks the New Orleans Saints are poised for long-term success. Joyner, his colleague, went with the Rams for similar reasons as Los Angeles also has a revamped defense and a solid quarterback in third-year pro Jared Goff.
Looking outside of the NFC, Sando took the Los Angeles Chargers, the only AFC selection.
Back in the NFC, Schatz is betting Aaron Rodgers will be able to stay healthy and went with the Green Bay Packers. Finally, Seifert took Minnesota Vikings, largely because the 2017 NFC runners-up have a roster stocked with young high-end players and were able to add quarterback Kirk Cousins in the offseason to fill their most glaring need.Read the full story at ESPN
