"It's finally time to get to the cream of the crop. After three previews traversing the league's pretenders, we're finishing up our NFL preview today by looking at the contenders. Today, we analyze the eight teams we expect will compete for this year's Lombardi Trophy. While our previous dispatches haven't ranked the teams in any discernible order, this fourth edition of our preview will list the Super Bowl contenders in reverse order of their chances to be celebrating in Indianapolis this February."
"2. Philadelphia Eagles
Odds to win Super Bowl XLVI: +834
We're not going to rehash the past few months here. Suffice to say, the Eagles won the offseason handily; their biggest weakness was at cornerback, and they added the second-best corner in football. "
"But even after you account for the possibility of Vick losing a bit of his edge or missing time, this should still be a great football team. The Eagles get four games against the NFC West, and since the Giants have been torn asunder by injuries during the preseason, the NFC East doesn't look all that complicated anymore."
