NFL 2016/17 season preview

Broncos win Super Bowl 50

The Denver Broncos produced a defensive masterclass to upset the Carolina Panthers 24-10 and win Super Bowl 50. Carolina were heavy favourites, having lost only once all season and with the league's Most Valuable Player of the season Cam Newton at quarterback. But Newton was smothered by the Broncos defence and gave up three turnovers, including one that led to a touchdown. That helped Denver, quarterbacked by veteran Peyton Manning, open a 10-0 lead early on and they never lost it. It's a third Super Bowl title for the Broncos, after wins in 1997 and 1998.

Rams move back to Los Angeles

After 21 seasons in St. Louis, the Rams are back in Los Angeles. The Rams' owner, Stan Kroenke, has announced plans for a $2.6 billion stadium complex at the Hollywood Park site in Inglewood, but it's not slated to open until 2019. So for the first three seasons back in L.A., the Rams will be playing at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The Rams previously played at the Coliseum during their first stint in Los Angeles from 1946 to 1979.

These are the odds to win NFL 2016/17 Championship, published by online bookmakers before the start of the season.

The New England Patriots fell short last season, as they were eliminated by Denver in the AFC Championship game. However, they did win their seventh straight AFC East title. The expectation of competing for a championship still remains the same for Bill Belichick's squad, even with third-year pro Jimmy Garoppolo starting at quarterback for the first four games while Tom Brady serves his suspension for his alleged involvement in the Deflate-Gate scandal.

The 2015 Carolina Panthers had a season for the ages. They had a 14-0 start, quarterback Cam Newton emerged as the best player in the league. They led the Seahawks 31-0 in a divisional-round playoff win and beat the Cardinals by 34 points in the NFC championship. They were a single step from one of the greatest seasons in NFL history. The Panthers return almost their entire 15-1 team and bring back receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who was injured all of 2015. Carolina will clearly be the favorite to win the NFC South for the fourth year in a row and will have a decent shot at returning to the Super Bowl.

This is introduction to 2016/17 NFL season. Latest news, statistics, results and predictions you can find on our main NFL page.

Two seasons removed from a Super Bowl victory, the Seattle Seahawks still hold several championship pieces - quarterback Russell Wilson, both kickers, receiver Doug Baldwin and much of a stifling defense that revolves around Richard Sherman, Michael Bennett and Bobby Wagner. Nowhere to be found, however, are any of the starting offensive linemen who earned rings in New Jersey in 2014. Even with the issues and uncertainty on the offensive line, the Seahawks are still expected to contend for the conference title and a Super Bowl berth.

The Green Bay Packers' four-year run atop the NFC North came to a crashing halt last season, with the Minnesota Vikings' division title leading some to think there's been a changing of the guard. But with a healthy Jordy Nelson, a slimmer Eddie Lacy, a returning-to-form Aaron Rodgers and better health, there's no reason to believe the Packers won't be in the Super Bowl conversation once again.
