NFL Power Rankings 2016NFL Power Rankings 2016: Examining Latest Super Bowl Odds Before Week 17Kristopher KnoxFeatured ColumnistDecember 28, 2016All six teams are locked for the AFC, though the seeding isn’t finalized. Four teams are set in the NFC, and the winner of Sunday night’s Green Bay Packers jerseys and Detroit Lions jerseys matchup will claim the NFC North division title.
While we have a good idea of which teams are going to be in the tournament for Super Bowl 51, though, there’s still some mystery about which teams are good enough to win it. Last week’s injury to Oakland Raiders jerseys quarterback cheap Derek Carr jersey did nothing to clarify the picture, either.
We’re going to examine the few teams still in the running for the postseason and their latest Super Bowl odds courtesy of OddsShark. We’ll also take a look at some of the more interesting odds as of Week 17.
Teams to WatchPittsburgh Steelers jerseys (8 1)
The Pittsburgh Steelers jerseys have surged in recent weeks, both in terms of conference standings and Super Bowl odds. Their Christmas Day win over the Baltimore Ravens jerseys ensured the Steelers jerseys would be in the postseason, and now they’re considered one of the favorites to take home the Lombardi Trophy.
Experience obviously plays a factor here. Quarterback cheap Ben Roethlisberger cheap nfl jerseys jersey has appeared in three Super Bowls, while head coach Mike Tomlin has reached two since taking his current position.
It also helps that Roethlisberger leads one of the most potent offenses in the NFL right now. The Steelers jerseys are rated ninth in overall offense by Pro Football Focus and average 376.7 yards per game, seventh in the NFL.
Pittsburgh’s improving and opportunistic defense now allows the ninth fewest points in the league, an average of just 20.2 per game.
The Steelers jerseys have suddenly become one of the more well rounded teams in the AFC, and as such, they have claimed the second best odds in the conference. If there’s a team that appears poised to challenge the New England Patriots jerseys for the AFC title, it might just be the Steelers jerseys.

Oakland Raiders jerseys (28 1)
Despite boasting the second best record in the AFC, the Raiders jerseys have seen their projected odds of winning the Super Bowl drop dramatically. This is because Carr suffered a broken fibula in Week 16. The Penn State product hasn’t started a regular season game since the 2013 season with a 1 5 starting record.
The good news is that the Raiders jerseys seem to genuinely believe in McGloin’s ability to get the job done.
“He’s a leader at heart and a hard worker,” Raiders jerseys tight end cheap Mychal Rivera jersey said, per Jerry McDonald of the Bay Area News Group. “It’s almost like he lives for being that underdog, and that’s what fuels him. We’re going to rally behind him and we’re excited for Sunday.”
With all due respect to McGloin, Carr has played like an MVP candidate this season, and Pro Football Focus rated him
