Now that the Baltimore Ravens have officially defeated the San Francisco 49ers to win the Super Bowl, it is time to look forward to 2014. To some people, it may be too soon - way too soon even - to be looking all of the way to next year's Super Bowl when this year's Super Bowl just got over. But let's face it, if you are not a fan of the Baltimore Ravens or the San Francisco 49ers, you really didn't care about the 2013 Super Bowl anyways.

Here are our predictions as to what five teams may make the Super Bowl in 2014.

1: San Francisco 49ers

Even though they will leave the 2013 Super Bowl as losers, they have the best shot out of every other team in the NFL at making it to the 2014 Super Bowl. They are extremely young on all sides of the football and quarterback Colin Kaepernick finally has some experience under his belt. With as good as he was this season, just imagine how good he will be now that he has experience.

2: New England Patriots

The New England Patriots are Super Bowl contenders every single season and we do not expect that to change anytime soon. As long as Tom Brady is healthy and Bill Belichick is roaming the sidelines, they will be contenders. Next season their young defense will be much better than they had been in recent memory and their running game on offense will be even more powerful than it was in 2012.

3: Green Bay Packers

Any NFL team with Aaron Rodgers at the helm deserves to be considered a serious Super Bowl contender.

4: Denver Broncos

Peyton Manning was able to turn around the entire Broncos offense in just one season in Denver. Now that he has had a full season to build chemistry with the rest of the team, it is a safe be that the Broncos will be even more dominant next season.

5: Baltimore Ravens

They may be without Ray Lewis next season, but they will still have one of the best quarterbacks in the National Football League in Joe Flacco. Last season it may have seemed crazy to consider Flacco an elite quarterback, but after winning the Super Bowl and the MVP of the big game make no mistake about it - Joe Flacco is an elite quarterback.
