Which National Football League team is going to win the NFC West this season?
There is more parity than ever before in the National Football League and this season is full of it. There are so many different teams who could take home the Lombardi trophy this season and most of them play in the AFC. The NFC does have its contenders but it is pretty thin for the first time in a long time. Regardless of what happens. It is sure to be a season full of incredible plays and incredible moments all culminating in one winner being crowned as Super Bowl champions in 2023.
Division winners are always a hot topic before the season starts and much like the super bowl winner, some of these division winners are hard to pick as well. Especially in such a loaded AFC where 13 out of the 16 teams could potentially end up as a division winning playoff team. That is certainly what I’m most looking forward to watching this season is how the teams in the AFC perform whereas the NFC is a little more cut and dry and you should know we expect to be the winners in that conference.

2022-23 NFL Season Predictions-NFC
The Seattle Seahawks have the worst quarterback situation out of any of the teams in the NFC West division as they will have to deal with either Drew Lock or Genò Smith starting under center for them this season. They will also be without Chris Carson who retired due to injury. However, they still have a decent defense and DK Metcalf which gives them a shot to be competitive in the NFC West this season. Due to the quarterback situation however, I think the Seattle Seahawks will finish in the last place of the NFC West this season.
San Francisco 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers are having a bit of a quarterback controversy as well as it looks like Trey Lance will finally be taking over for Jimmy G heading into the 2022-23 National Football League season. San Francisco has the potential to be a solid team with Trey a Lance under center as long as Deebo Samuel can remain healthy. San Francisco might experience some growing pains however after making the switch to a new quarterback. Which is why I have finishing third in the NFC West this season in front of only the Seattle Seahawks.
Los Angeles Rams
The Los Angeles Rams are the defending Super Bowl champions and they certainly have all the pieces to make another run at a title this season. With Matt Stafford and Cooper Kupp returning as one of the best duos of last season as well as a healthy Cam Akers this team is just as dangerous as they were last season. I think the Los Angeles Rams are the best team in the entire National Football League and will easily win the NFC West this season. As I have them making yet another run to the Super Bowl as well.
The Arizona Cardinals have the chance to be a solid team this year if Kyler Murray can remain healthy throughout the 2022-23 National Football League season. James Connor will likely see the majority of the load at the running back position and Hollywood Brown steps in as the number one target during Deandre Hopkins absence for his six game suspension. However, I think it will be the Arizona Cardinals who finished in second place of the NFC West division behind the Los Angeles Rams.
