2011-2010 NFL Season Preview: Super Bowl Title Contenders

As usual, the defending Super Bowl champions have a very good chance of repeating heading into next season, but oddly enough, the Indianapolis Colts will be the favorites to win Super Bowl XLV when the season begins.

Even though Peyton Manning and company are the team to beat in many people’s minds, Drew Brees and his boys have a legitimate shot of winning their second straight Super Bowl title as they will have relatively the same championship team intact.

The only concern for the Saints heading into next season will be their defense and whether it will be as solid as last year, but the offense will continue to light up the scoreboard and will be one of the teams to beat in the NFC Conference once again.

 

Minnesota Vikings

Last season the Minnesota Vikings had a breakout year as they became arguably one of the best teams in the league on both sides of the football. Not only was their offense second to none with Brett Favre behind center and Adrian Peterson coming out of the backfield, but their defense was just as good and as long the Silver Fox comes back for one more year, the Vikings will be Super Bowl contenders for the second straight season.

If Favre decides to call it quits, I really can’t see the Vikings contending with Sage Rosenfels or Tavaris Jackson behind center, but if he stays for one more year the rest of the league should beware of this NFC powerhouse with a chip on their shoulder.

 

Indianapolis Colts

As the Super Bowl favorites heading into the season, Peyton Manning and company have a lot of going from them as they try to avenge their loss to the New Orleans Saints last season, but much like the Saints, the Colts defense will be suspect.

As always, whenever four-time NFL MVP quarterback Peyton Manning is behind center in Indianapolis, the Colts will be a serious force to be reckoned with in the AFC Conference and next season will be no different as the youngsters on this team have one successful season under their belts.

 

New York Jets

The defensive minded New York Jets surprised a lot of people with their impressive play last season, especially in the playoffs, but this year they will have some serious upgrades to their offense which was really the only thing holding them back from contending for a Super Bowl.

With the addition of LaDainian Tomlinson in the backfield with youngster Shonn Greene and Santonio Holmes in the receiving corps with Braylon Edwards, the New York Jets will be able to give their lockdown defense some much needed rest on the sidelines this season.

As a result, Mark Sanchez and company just might come out as Super Bowl champions, but they will have to get past teams like the Baltimore Ravens and the Indianapolis Colts to do it.

 

Dallas Cowboys

Even though they aren’t getting much credit or recognition as a Super Bowl title contender heading into next season, I believe the Dallas Cowboys will surprise a lot of teams in the NFC Conference this year as they will have arguably the most dynamic offense in the league.

With arguably the best receiving corps in the NFL with Miles Austin, Jason Witten, Roy Williams and rookie Dez Bryant, the Cowboys will display an air attack that rivals the New Orleans Saints of last year.

That is a bold statement, but it is do or die for this team this season and the extra motivation of playing a Super Bowl in Cowboys Stadium just might be enough to put them over the top in the NFC Conference!

 

Possible Contenders: Atlanta Falcons, Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens and San Diego Chargers
