There are so many different possible scenarios
With the NFL Draft in the books , it is now time for the NFL teams to focus on the task at hand, and that is trying to win Super Bowl LII.  that could happen in the upcoming 2017 NFL season, and it is fun to see all the different possibilities that could come out of this football season. You have the all-around favorites, the potential contenders, the middle of the pack, and the lower tier teams as the four levels of where NFL teams are ranked going into next year. This is based off of scheduling, how your team performed last season, and what moves did you make to help your team via free agency, and the NFL Draft.With that being said with training camps starting towards the end of July Dre'Mont Jones Jersey , there are several teams that are still currently looking for a piece that can help take their team to the next level. Every team walks into training camp with the aspiration of not only making the playoffs, but making it to the Super Bowl and winning it on the grandest stage of them all. It takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and very good game planning to be able to win a Super Bowl. Every team has a legitimate shot at the beginning of the year, but after the first few weeks into the year you can tell who are the Super Bowl contenders and who are the Super Bowl pretenders. That being said here are every NFL team's chance of winning Super Bowl LII.
Teams from opposite ends of Pennsylvania and heading in opposite directions face off this weekend when the Philadelphia Phillies visit the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park.
Philadelphia (47-37) has won four games in a row and six of its past seven to sit 10 games above .500 for the first time since late 2011.
“I think it’s a nice milestone and one that we can celebrate. We’ll use it as fuel and motivation,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said.
The Phillies have put themselves in solid contention in the National League East. The series opener Friday against Pittsburgh launches a four-city, 11-game road trip that leads into the All-Star break.
“We never really doubted ourselves,” said starter Aaron Nola, who picked up the win Wednesday in a 4-1 victory over Baltimore. “Other people thought we were in a rebuilding year this year. We got good additions to the team.
“We have veteran guys who have been on winning teams and won championships. They know what it takes to win , and I think we’re following them.”
The Pirates (40-46), meanwhile, sit at a season-low six games below .500 and are in danger of being caught by last-place Cincinnati in the NL Central. They are opening an 11-game homestand leading into the All-Star break.
Pittsburgh is coming off a 2-4 West Coast trip, the final three games of which it was swept in Los Angeles by a combined score of 31-8. The Dodgers had 10 homers among 41 hits in those games.
“I think we definitely could have played better, but we also ran into a really hot team too,” Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer told “In the whole grand scheme of things, we haven’t played very well and we’re six games under .500 right now. Things could be a lot worse.
“That’s one of the bright spots that you can look at. … We need to put four or five games in a row, and win four or five good games in a row, then see what happens after that.”
The Phillies qualify as another hot team. They also swept a four-game series against the Pirates in April.
“We’ve just got to keep working Rashan Gary Jersey ,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. “The game shows you where you need to improve. It gives you immediate feedback. We got a lot of immediate feedback.”
Two Pittsburgh starters, Chad Kuhl and Joe Musgrove, were hurt during the road trip.
On Friday, Pirates right-hander Trevor Williams (6-6, 4.22 ERA) is scheduled to start against Philadelphia righty Nick Pivetta (5-7, 4.66).
Williams has lost two straight starts since a June 18 win when he pitched seven scoreless, one-hit innings in a 1-0 game against Milwaukee. That was his first victory in more than a month.
He is 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA in two career starts against the Phillies, including a no-decision April 22 when he gave up two runs in six innings of an 11-inning Pirates loss.
Pivetta’s last outing wasn’t a start. He came in to pitch a scoreless 13th inning Sunday when the Phillies had to go deep into their pitching staff in a 4-3 win over Washington. It was his first relief appearance since 2015 when he was in Class A.
Pivetta has one no-decision in his career against Pittsburgh.
