Football Is Back and These Are the Teams to Look Out for This Season

We are in September which means the NFL is officially back after the offseason and American’s are salivating at the thought of yet another spectacular season. The most popular sport in the nation, football games rake in on average 16 million viewers with the Super Bowl exceeding hundreds of millions.

The coming season is sure to be an exciting one and the excitement for the opening game on September 7 is palpable. It is then when the Detroit Lions will host last year’s Super Bowl winners, the Kansas City Chiefs.

The road team will be heavy favorites as they look to start yet another journey to the Super Bowl. You can back them in the season opener with NY sportsbook promos to allow you to get the most from your wagers. However, they will have plenty of competition from around the league with so many strong teams. Let’s take a look at the teams to look out for in the 2023 NFL season.

Kansas City Chiefs

Starting with the most obvious pick, the Chiefs enter the season as Super Bowl favorites once again. They had an extremely strong 2022, going 14-3 in the regular season. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes once again proved to be the best in the league, breaking his own record with 5,250 passing yards for a completion percentage of 67.1.

His partnership with Travis Kelce, the best tight end in the league, was the root of much of their success with the eight-time Pro-bowler notching up a career-high 12 touchdowns. Their Super Bowl win over a red-hot Philadelphia Eagles team further cemented just how incredible Andy Reid’s Chiefs side is.

During the offseason their most significant additions came in the form of offensive tackles Donovan Smith and Jawaan Taylor. Taylor is a player whose career is in its ascendancy and after experiencing some issues with their OL in the last couple of seasons, the Chiefs have improved where they needed to for yet another big season.

Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles

From last year’s Super Bowl winners onto the losing team, the Eagles were incredible in 2022. Before the season started there was much to be said about Quarterback Jaylen Hurts and whether he could deliver after a relatively disappointing 2021.

He silenced any doubters quickly and went on to lead the Eagles to their best regular season record in franchise history. They won their first eight games before a loss to the Washington Commanders, then won their following five, ending the season with a 14-3 record.

Their dream run to the Super Bowl ended in an agonizingly close 38-35 loss to the Chiefs. Hurts was unlucky not to claim the season MVP award and the team as a whole boasted eight Pro-bowlers with the likes of AJ Brown, Jason Kelce and Miles Sanders all having fantastic seasons.

They have added some great offensive picks with RBs Rashaad Penny and D’Andre Swift as well as experienced Safety Terrell Edmunds. The Eagles will want to go one better and win the big one in 2023 and there’s no reason they can’t do exactly that.

Buffalo Bills

The Bills had a great regular season in 2023, finishing 13-3 and looked on their way to making the Super Bowl after opening as early favorites. However, a disappointing Postseason saw them exit in the Divisional round to the Bengals.

They have one of the best QB/WR duos in the form of Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs and the two were red hot for much of the season, however it wasn’t enough to take them where Bills fans thought they would be.

They have made some significant moves in the offseason however and are still determined to bring Buffalo their first Vince Lombardi Trophy. Jordan Poyer is an excellent addition at Safety and Poona Ford joins a good Defensive Tackle unit. With Allen and Diggs issues’ behind them there’s no doubt that the Bills will be big players in 2023.

New York Jets

The New York Jets have not had a winning season in eight years but did show some improvement in 2022. They finished 7-10 and boasted both the Offensive and Defensive rookies of the year with Garrett Wilson and Sauce Gardner respectively. However, despite a poor season, there is one gigantic addition in the offseason which may just see fortune turn in their favour.

Legendary Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was traded to the MetLife Stadium after spending his entire career with the Green Bay Packers and the Jets finally have a franchise QB. On top of that, they brought in Rodgers’ former wide receiving teammates Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb.

They have rejigged their receiving unit with a further addition of Mecole Hardman. The rapport between Rodgers and his former Packers teammates means they can really hit the ground running and after nearly a decade of disappointment the Jets may finally have the makings of a playoff worthy team.
