Friday marks 100 days until Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 11th. That means it’s a good time to look back and see where the last 10 Super Bowl champions were 100 days before their Super Bowl win. if there is any kind of movement about who the future Super Bowl 2023 champion might be.
Final list of the 10 Super Bowl champions 100 days away from the Super Bowl
A few things stand out about the last 10 Super Bowl champions: They all had no more than two losses, they all had double-digit wins by the end of the regular season and they all won their divisions except a -only the 2020 Buccaneers, who. he finished second in the NFC South to the 12-4 New Orleans Saints that season. Tampa Bay, in its first season with the GOAT Tom Brady at quarterback, defeated the New Orleans Saints in their third game of the season, 30-20, in the NFC Divisional Round on the -way to their Super Bowl title that year.
With these patterns, there are eight teams that could win the Super Bowl this season with four contenders from each conference sitting with two losses or less entering Week 9 .The four from the AFC are the reigning Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs (6-). 2), the Miami Dolphins (6-2), the Jacksonville Jaguars (6-2) and the Baltimore Ravens (6-2). The four from the NFC are the reigning NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles (7-1), the Detroit Lions (6-2), the Seattle Seahawks (5-2) and the Dallas Cowboys (5-2).
The Cowboys are the only team of those eight not currently in first place in their division, but they could move up to first place in the NFC East as soon as Sunday afternoon if they can defeat the Eagles was demolished in Philadelphia.
Some notable exclusions from this benchmark include the Buffalo Bills (5-3), Cincinnati Bengals (4-3) and San Francisco 49ers (5-3). Both the Bengals and 49ers have reached the conference championship round in each of the last two seasons with Cincy nearly beating the Rams in Super Bowl LVI two seasons ago in lost 23-20. Those are the two teams that would likely break through to win the Super Bowl even if they didn’t meet the criteria set by the last 10 NFL champions.
As for the rest of the league, the 2024 NFL Draft, which is also based in Vegas, begins with the first round on Thursday, April 25.
