The NFL season is in full swing and there are a lot of great teams out there vying for the title of best in the league. Who do you think is the best team right now?
The Case for the Rams
The Los Angeles Rams are the best team in the NFL right now. They have a great offense led by QB Jared Goff, and an even better defense. The Rams also have a great coach in Sean McVay, who has turned the team around since he took over in 2017.
They have the best record in the NFL
The Rams are the best team in the NFL right now. They have the best record in the NFL at 9-1, and they are coming off of a dominant performance against the Saints where they won 45-35. They have a balanced offense that is led by quarterback Jared Goff, who is having an MVP caliber season. They also have a great defense that is led by defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who is also having an MVP caliber season. They are the complete package and they have a real chance to win the Super Bowl this year.
They have the best point differential in the NFL
The Los Angeles Rams have the best point differential in the NFL. They have scored 500 points and allowed only 264, for a difference of 236. That’s nearly 14 points per game. No other team is even close. The New Orleans Saints are second at +155, followed by the Kansas City Chiefs at +149, the Los Angeles Chargers at +148, and the Chicago Bears at +145.
That’s an impressive achievement, but it doesn’t necessarily mean the Rams are the best team in the NFL. It’s possible that their record is propped up by a few blowout wins and that they’re not as good as their point differential suggests.
To investigate that possibility, I looked at every game since 1970 in which a team had a point differential of at least 200 through 12 games. There have been 54 such teams, including this year’s Rams. Of those 54 teams, 28 made the Super Bowl (52%), and 14 won it (26%). So while the Rams have benefited from some lopsided victories, history suggests that they’re still one of the best teams in the NFL.
They have the best offense in the NFL
The Rams have the best offense in the NFL. They rank first in points per game and yards per game. They have a great quarterback in Jared Goff and an incredible running back in Todd Gurley. They also have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL. The Rams are the clear favorite to win the Super Bowl right now.
The Case for the Saints
The New Orleans Saints are currently on a 10-game winning streak, and they seem to be getting better with each game. They have one of the best offenses in the league, led by quarterback Drew Brees, and their defense is good enough to keep them in games. The Saints also have a good coach in Sean Payton, and they seem to be very well-rounded.
They have the best defense in the NFL
The New Orleans Saints are the best team in the NFL right now. They have the best defense in the NFL, they’re undefeated, and their offense is clicking on all cylinders. They’re also playing in the best division in the NFL, the NFC South. The Saints have beaten some good teams this year, including the Rams, Eagles, Cowboys, and Vikings. They’re also getting better as the season goes on, which is a scary thought for opposing teams.
They have the second-best record in the NFL
The New Orleans Saints are having a terrific season. They have the second-best record in the NFL, behind only the Los Angeles Rams. They have a dynamic offense, led by quarterback Drew Brees, who is having one of the best seasons of his Hall of Fame career. And they have a defense that is good enough to win games.
The Saints are not just a good team; they are a great team. And they have a chance to be even better in the playoffs.
So why are the Saints not getting more attention? Why are they not being talked about as one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl?
There are a few reasons. First, the Rams are clearly the better team in the NFC. They have been more consistent and more dominant than the Saints. Second, the Saints have lost two games in dramatic fashion, on late field goals by the Vikings and Rams. And third, the Saints play in a small market, which means they don’t get as much media attention as teams from larger markets like New York and Los Angeles.
But none of those reasons should take away from how good the Saints are. They are one of the best teams in the NFL, and they should be taken seriously as a Super Bowl contender.
They have the second-best point differential in the NFL
They have the second-best point differential in the NFL, They have a top-five offense and a top-10 defense, They have a future Hall of Famer at quarterback and one of the best pass-catchers of this generation.
The Case for the Chiefs
The Kansas City Chiefs are currently the best team in the NFL. They have a well-rounded team with a great offense and defense. They also have a good coach in Andy Reid. The Chiefs have a lot of talented players, including quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
They have the best quarterback in the NFL
The Kansas City Chiefs are the best team in the NFL right now. One big reason for that is because they have the best quarterback in the NFL, Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes is currently leading the league in touchdown passes with 45, and he’s also thrown for over 4,000 yards. In addition to Mahomes, the Chiefs also have one of the best offenses in the NFL. They’re currently averaging over 30 points per game, which is the most in the NFL.
In addition to having a great offense, the Chiefs also have a solid defense. They’re currently ranked sixth in the NFL in points allowed per game. They’ve been particularly good at stopping opposing teams from scoring touchdowns, as they’re allowing opponents to score touchdowns on just 45 percent of their drives.
The Chiefs have also been pretty good at winning close games this season. They’re currently 6-1 in games that have been decided by seven points or less. The only other team that has a better record in close games is the New England Patriots.
So, when you look at all of these factors, it’s clear that the Kansas City Chiefs are the best team in the NFL right now.
They have the best home-field advantage in the NFL
The Kansas City Chiefs have the best home-field advantage in the NFL. They’re 8-0 at home this season, and their average margin of victory is more than 14 points per game. The Chiefs have lost just four games in Arrowhead Stadium since the start of the 2015 season.
Their opponents this season have an average winning percentage of just .404, which is the second-lowest in the NFL. And their opponents’ average road winning percentage is even lower, at .380. In other words, the Chiefs have been playing some pretty bad teams at home this season.
But even if we take a step back and look at their entire home schedule since 2015, their opponents have an average winning percentage of just .484. That’s still not great, but it’s a lot better than what they’ve been facing this season. And their average margin of victory in those games is just under 10 points per game.
So while the Chiefs might not be the best team in the NFL right now, they’re certainly one of the hardest teams to beat at home. And that gives them a huge advantage heading into the playoffs.
They have the best chance to win the Super Bowl
In 2019, the Kansas City Chiefs became the first team in NFL history to lose a playoff game by double digits and then come back the next season and win the Super Bowl. They did it with a comeback overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers, capping off a season in which they seemed to get better as the year went on.
Now, heading into 2020, the Chiefs are once again one of the favorites to win it all. They have an explosive offense led by MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes, and a defense that improved as the season went on last year.
There are other teams with a case to be made as the best in the NFL heading into 2020 (the Baltimore Ravens come to mind), but right now, it’s hard to argue against the Kansas City Chiefs as the team to beat.
The Case for the Patriots
The New England Patriots are currently the best team in the NFL. They have a strong offense led by Tom Brady and a solid defense. They also have a great coach in Bill Belichick. The Patriots have won five Super Bowls since 2002.

The Case for the Steelers
The Steelers are currently the best team in the NFL. They have a great offense and a great defense. They are also well-coached and have a good mix of veterans and young players. Let’s take a closer look at why the Steelers are the best team in the NFL.
They have the best wide receiver in the NFL
