NFC predictions: NFC West

  1. Los Angeles Rams
  2. San Francisco 49ers
  3. Arizona Cardinals
  4. Seattle Seahawks

This remains one of the toughest divisions in the NFL, and that hurts each team when it comes to stacking up wins and going for the top seed.

The Matthew Stafford trade paid off in a huge way for the Los Angeles Rams as he led them to a championship. The star of the show was Cooper Kupp, who put together one of the greatest seasons by a wide receiver in NFL history.

Stafford doesn’t just have Kupp to throw to, but also Allen Robinson and Van Jefferson.

With a dominant offense and strong defense, the Rams remain the team to beat in the NFC West.

The Packers have won their previous two matchups with the Rams, but they meet again in 2022.

The San Francisco 49ers should be Super Bowl contenders again, but they aren’t without some big questions. Is Trey Lance ready to become their starting quarterback? Is their secondary good enough?

The best news for the 49ers is that they haven’t traded away superstar wide receiver Deebo Samuel. He is so important to Kyle Shanahan’s offense.

From a Packers’ perspective, let’s just hope the 49ers stay away from the postseason.

The Arizona Cardinals are good enough to make the playoffs, but their secondary is a major concern when it comes to matchups with great offenses.

The Seattle Seahawks have hit the reset button after trading away Russell Wilson. A top-five draft pick is in their near future.
