American Football - Who will be crowned King in 2013?

Again, this is a hard thing to do without even the preseason but it's always fun to debate against the other teams.
Personally, I would want to say my team, but they aren't "dominant". If I had to give my 2 cents, it would be the 49ers. Not only did they not lose players, they gained some play-makers. Dominant defense and a run first offense has always been a recipe for success.

I almost want to say that Buffalo is going to be great this year, but that's what I said last year and look at how that ended up.

...or at least that's what the fan in me wants to see happen.
The Cards defense is already quite good; it can match up toe-to-toe against most offenses and it makes things happen. It's the fact they're on the field for 40 minutes of the game and giving the ball back to an offense that can't score that's the problem for them. If Kolb or Skelton step up this season and get the offense rolling, they have a team that could possibly give the Niners a run for their money for the lead in the NFC West and surprise everyone.
Realistically though, I anticipate we'll see the Niners and Pats playing in February.

Outside of the NFC North, I think that the Denver Broncos have some potential. Their defense was stellar last season (not sure if they lost anybody). The running game flourished in a mostly one dimensional offense. And then of course, they added Peyton Manning. They're definately my team to watch.
However, I'm going with the Lions, mostly because this is the first time I honestly believe that they could pull it off.
