The Detroit Lions, currently holding the longest active playoff drought in the NFC, last appeared in the postseason in 2016. However, under the leadership of head coach Dan Campbell in his third season, the Lions are the favorites to win the NFC North.
Quarterback Jared Goff had an impressive performance last season with a 99.3 passer rating and a total of 29 passing touchdowns. These numbers mark his best since 2018, thanks to the guidance of first-year offensive coordinator Ben Johnson. With Johnson’s continued leadership, the Lions’ offense is expected to further improve this year.
Kansas City Chiefs
Fresh off their triumph against the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII, where they claimed their second Super Bowl title in the last 4 years, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs set their sights on becoming the first team to secure back-to-back Super Bowl titles since the 2003-04 Patriots.
Mahomes, the league leader in passing yards last season with a career high of 5,250, threw an NFL-high of 41 touchdown passes, earning his second career MVP. Since taking over as the starting QB in 2018, Mahomes’ magic has propelled Kansas City to the AFC Championship in the last 5 consecutive seasons.
