Through the midway point of the 2018 NFL season there is nearly a consensus from the fans on who are the favorites in the NFC and the AFC.

Which is staggering, but the NFL season has shown that there really seem to be four great teams and then a lot of good teams.

Could someone get hot at the right time, absolutely, but if the playoffs started Sunday, fans see only four teams really competing for the Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, Georgia on February 3, 2019.

94% of respondents to the SB Nation FanPulse survey see either the Kansas City Chiefs, this week Arizona Cardinals opponent, or the New England Patriots representing the AFC.

The teams have played once this season in what was one of the best games of the season, as the Patriots took home a 43-40 win.

Of course, that game was in Foxboro, and the Chiefs currently hold homefield advantage throughout the playoffs.

In the NFC, it is an even bigger gap, as 96% of fans see the Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints as the only two viable options to represent the NFC.

They played last week in a great game that the Saints won 45-35, which gives them the first tie breaker if the teams tie at the end of the season with one loss.

What would be your pick for Super Bowl LIII matchup if it was these four teams?
