The regular season of the NFL betting returns this week, with many candidates to the throne who hold the Denver Broncos imposed in the Super Bowl 50 on February 7 in Levi’s Stadium of Santa Clara California.
For many, this is the best league in the world for its competitiveness, to the point that in the last 10 years, no team has been able to win the championship in consecutive seasons.
Before the retirement of quarterback Peyton Manning, the Denver Broncos are also a candidate, but with the option to show a different facet offensive, as their defense led the championship last season.

With its recently turned 39, Tom Brady, quarterback of the New England Patriots, stands out as the great figure to follow of the season.
Four-time winner of the Super Bowl (XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXXIX, XLIX), three times most valuable player of the final, most valuable player of the season in 2007 and 2010, selected 11 times for the Pro Bowl (Star game).
In his career, Brady has 428 touchdown passes, collected more than 58,000 yards.
The only problem is that the New England Patriots will be without their superstar in the first four games of the season because Brady is suspension by the NFL.
The quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers, comes to this season with an important weight on his shoulders, being an experienced player who should lead the “head cheese” to a Super Bowl after they got in 2011, precisely hand successor to Brett Favre on the Packers.
Rodgers is credited only with the Super Bowl XLV, who won 31-25 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It has also been selected five times for the Pro Bowl and was the most valuable player of the season in 2011 and 2014.
The leader of the Packers offense entered the NFL in 2005, but took the position a starter in the team after the departure of the legendary Brett Favre in 2008. At that time has accumulated 257 touchdowns and 32,399 yards.
The most dominant NFL running back is in charge of directing the offense of the Minnesota Vikings. Adrian Petterson, with 31, has been impressive and is in charge of carrying the attack of the Minnesota Vikings, especially after the injury of quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, which will keep him out the entire season.
Peterson has won more than 1,000 yards in seven of his nine NFL seasons, just could not get it in 2011 (970) and 2014 (21), but in that year only participated in a game.
With 97 receiving touchdowns running five, Peterson reached this season with only an outstanding debt: play a Super Bowl, something that has failed, but not for lack of capacity.
J. J. Watt
Figure defensive league is J. J. Watt, which carries much of the aspirations of his team, because in football it is said that the defenses are able to win championships.
Watt appeared in the NFL in 2011 and from the outset has proven its worth accumulating 74.5 sacks in five years, with 371 tackles.
The defense has been named defensive player of the year three times and led the league in sacks at quarterback in 2012 and 2015.
No doubt that the rookie to follow this year is Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas Cowboys running back from Ohio State. And also the number one pick in the draft, Jared Goff, quarterback Los Angeles Rams.
Although it is very difficult to determine who are the real favorites of the season, there are teams that excel within eight different divisions.
In the NFC East, as happens almost every year, there is no clear candidate. However, the New York Giants with Eli Manning’s and Odell Bekcham JR can take advantage of the injury of Tony Romo, quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys. The Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins appear behind these two teams.
The duel between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings dyed dramatically in the NFC North with fewer options seem from the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions.
The defending champions of the NFC, Carolina Panthers will not have an easy road in the NFC South, with Atlanta Falcons prowling the first place, along with the New Orlean Saints Drew Brees and we have to wait to see what the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will offer this season.
Another interesting matchup is for the championship of the NFC West with the Seattle Seahawks and the Arizona Cardinals with powerful offensive and tough defense.
In the AFC East the favorite will always be the New England Patriots, as have their star Tom Brady, but the New York Jets, Miami Dolphins and Bills Bufallo try to ruin one of the last Brady season.
With an offensive conformed by Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown, joined one of the most stout defenses in the league, makes the Pittsburgh Steelers favorite poster carried at the expense of the Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens.
One more year for the Indianapolis Colts lead the AFC South with an increasingly mature Andrew Luck, they have the obligation to prove that they are able to appear. However, there may be surprises with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Houston Texans; a little behind seem to be the Tennesse Titans.
The champions are respected in all parts of the world, and the Denver Broncos have called to appear in the AFC West with a great defense, but Peyton Manning. There are three other teams that want to wrest the crown to the division champion Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs.
The new season brings changes of players on certain teams, with the aim of fighting for the quotas for the postseason.
The backup quarterback of the Denver Broncos, Brock Osweiler, signed a four-year, $ 72 million contract with the Houston Texans.
Panthers cornerback Josh Norman, left the NFC champions to sign for four years with the Redskins in exchange for $ 75 million.
Robert Griffin III, QB, has a new chance to shine after a disappointing step by the Washington Redskins and will be two years in the Cleveland Browns for $ 15 million.
