1. Seattle Seahawks

They are no longer undefeated at home, but they have the best record in the NFC. With the best defense in the NFL, they can stop any team dead in their tracks. They have the best secondary in the NFL that would give any quarterback and wide receiver fits. With quarterback Russel Wilson, the Seahawks have one of the deepest rosters in the NFL that can plug in players to beat teams at their weakness.

While they have lost games this year, they have all been to teams with 10 or more wins, which is understandable. The Seahawks are huge Super Bowl favorites, but the Super Bowl will be in New York; meaning weather conditions could be a huge factor for the team if they were to make it.

With no real glaring weakness, the Seahawks are #1 in the power rankings and Super Bowl favorites.
