Green Bay Packers Heavy Favorites To Win NFC Championship

Aaron Rodgers Packers Fantasy Rankings
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is one of the top quarterbacks in the 2021 season but can he lead the Packers to a Championship?

The NFL has finally reached the postseason, as the 32 teams to compete in the League have since been whittled down to a final 14 as each of them harbor hopes of being able to win the Super Bowl.

However, for this particular article, we will disregard the AFC for the time being and solely concentrate on the seven teams in the NFC that have a chance of winning the Vince Lombardi trophy on Sunday, 13 February 2022 at SoFi Stadium, Los Angeles, California.

The NFC is an exceptionally strong conference and one that boasts a number of brilliant franchises, which is why making a prediction about who could be the NFC Championship winner is something that can be rather difficult to make. Nonetheless, we have taken a look at the odds available and detailed why the teams mentioned could be the ones that go on to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.

Green Bay Packers favorites to win the NFC Championship

According to the available Unibet Odds Indiana has made available, the Green Bay Packers have been made the favorites to win the NFC Championship, with a price of +150 at the time of writing.

Indeed, it is rather hard to look beyond the Packers at the moment as they are the former team at the moment and one that looks incredibly hungry to win the title.

It could be Aaron Rodgers’ last season with the franchise, given all of the outside noise surrounding the quarterback, however last season’s MVP has continued to put up a number of outstanding numbers that have him in the discussion to be MVP once again this season. If he achieves that, it means he would have won the award for the fourth time.

The Packers started the season poorly after being blown out by the New Orleans Saints in Week 1 3-38, however they have since rallied back as they went on a seven-game unbeaten run before finishing the regular season with a 13-4 record.

They have the No. 1 seed in the NFC, which means they will be able to skip the Wild Card Round due to the bye they are given, whilst they will also have home-field advantage from this point onwards. That, coupled with the impressive players Matt LaFleur has on either side of the ball, should be enough to see them to the NFC Championship Game and win it to advance to Super Bowl LVI.

Who else can challenge the Green Bay Packers for the NFC Championship?

As mentioned, there are a number of strong teams in the NFC with each of them possessing some incredibly talented playing rosters. However, it might be said that there really are just two teams that could potentially challenge the Packers when it comes to the NFC Championship: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Los Angeles Rams.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the current defending Super Bowl Champions and despite having Tom Brady continue to put up impressive figures each and every week, going the distance for the second time in successive seasons could be a feat that the GOAT would also find challenging.

Nonetheless, TB12 has plenty of experience and will want to win another title before he finally decides to retire. Like Green Bay, Tampa has an incredibly deep roster full of impressive players on both sides of the ball, but they will need to play an additional game and if they beat the Philadelphia Eagles in the Wild Card Game, then they will be required to play another game to try and progress further.

The Los Angeles Rams have been in exceptional form throughout the season and the lure of a Super Bowl being played at their home stadium may have provided Sean McVay’s side with an added incentive to be competing at the season-ending showdown.

The Rams have been making a number of blockbuster trades throughout the season, potentially with the aim of trying to turn this year’s NFL season into one where they are all in. Indeed, with a defense that features DT Aaron Donald, CB Jalen Ramsey and LB Von Miller, as well as an offense that boasts the likes of WRs Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham Jr, as well as RB Sony Michel and QB Matt Stafford, there is every chance that they could, although they will need to play better than they did against the San Francisco 49ers in the final game of the regular season.
