1. LA Rams
The LA Rams are the defending Super Bowl champions and they have a pretty good chance of at least making it to the Super Bowl next season as well. The NFC is wide open with not that many contenders and the Rams have to be considered the runaway favorites in the conference.
Les Snead has built a complete team with his approach to trading draft picks and while pundits continually say that it will eventually come back to bite, the team has done fantastic late-round drafting and has elite coaching that has smashed open this Super Bowl window.
The Rams' offense is perhaps the most talented in the league (if not for the Chargers). Matthew Stafford has cemented his Hall of Fame resume and while he might not be in the elite crop of 3-4 quarterbacks, he is in the tier right below that and is good enough to put together an MVP season is everything clicks.
It makes it easier when he is throwing to arguably the best receiver in the league in Cooper Kupp, who had the closest thing to an MVP season out of a wide receiver we have ever seen. The team replaced Odell Beckham Jr. with Allen Robinson, who has shown elite potential and will likely blossom in LA as a result. Van Jefferson is a great WR3 to have and Tyler Higbee is a capable pass-catching tight end.
Cam Akers is going to be healthy and can actually have a full season's worth of impact for the Rams but it is not like the running backs behind him are bad, either. The offensive line has held up well in recent years but it will be interesting to see how it plays in the first season without Andrew Whitworth.
Regardless, there is so much talent on the offensive side of the ball and the LA Rams also have one of the best offensive coaches in the sport in Sean McVay. They are undoubtedly the best offense the Chargers face in 2022.
