Early Super Bowl favorites for 2014

To find other teams to watch, stay in the NFC West and NFC South. Carolina is a franchise on the rise. Cam Newton is maturing into a top-level quarterback. If the front office can upgrade his receiving corps, watch out. The Cardinals and Rams also are on the rise. Arizona coach Bruce Arians stunned everyone by acquiring Carson Palmer and winning 10 games. Although Arians is all about offense, the Cardinals have a talented defense that will only get better with general manager Steve Keim preparing for the draft.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher has the youngest team in football. He has two first-round picks, including the second overall choice in the draft. Quarterback Sam Bradford will be back from an ACL tear.
