4. The Seattle Seahawks are the best team in the NFL
The Seahawks may not have an 11-3 record like the Arizona Cardinals and New England Patriots, but they have won their last four games while holding a 10-4 record and looking like a dominant team capable of repeating as Super Bowl champions. They have allowed 14 points or less in each of those games, and they have beaten the Eagles while also defeating the Cardinals and 49ers twice.
The offense has not been particularly impressive, but the Seahawks are staying true to the old adage that “defense wins championships.” If their defense can keep up this kind of play, the Seahawks may be the first team to win two consecutive Super Bowls since the Patriots did it in 2004.
