2. New Orleans Saints
Although the New Orleans Saints American football team is only the third seed and must play from the first round (wild card), it is still considered the strongest team in the NFC group. The Saints lost one or two main players in the defense due to an injury, but the view from top to bottom was still a complete squad.
Quarterback Drew Brees has looked young, agile since returning to the pitch after a thumb injury in Week 8, and his absence in five matches turned out to be a boon for the 40-year-old. this. Near the end of last season, Brees started to get tired, but in the final qualifying match, he and his teammates crushed Carolina Panthers.
Currently, Brees plays no less than any pitcher, and the whole team is equally rhythmic. Running back Alvin Kamara may say playing less than last year, but in the last two matches of the qualifier he played very sharp. And to Michael Thomas, during the entire football season, no one seemed to be able to block the catches of this player.
If the Saints can clear the Minnesota Vikings barrier in the first round, they will play the Green Bay Packers in the second round on Green Bay. Winning away is not easy, but at this point, the Saints play better than Packers. Winning two away games to advance to the Super Bowl final is a huge challenge, but this is the team that can overcome that challenge. So let’s see if the Saints can do it.
3. Kansas City Chiefs
The Kansas City Chiefs were lucky in the final week of qualifying. The Patriots unexpectedly lost to the Dolphins and opened the Chiefs to get the second seed and took a break in the first round of the championship.
