But how does the rest of the NFC West look comparatively?
Let’s look at how the NFC West stacks up and what their strengths, weaknesses and potential X-factors for the coming season are.
No. 4: Los Angeles Rams

Biggest strength: DT Aaron Donald
Biggest weakness: Edge rush
X-factor: WR Allen Robinson
This makes sense being atop the division. They are Super Bowl champs, added talent and are the favorites to win the West again.
No. 13: San Francisco 49ers

Biggest strength: Defensive line
Biggest weakness: Interior offensive line
X-factor: QB Trey Lance
The 49ers do have a talented roster. They are strong in the front seven defensively and appear to have improved in the secondary. It won’t matter, though, unless Lance is at least average with some flashes of good.
No. 23: Arizona Cardinals
Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports
Biggest strength: Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins
Biggest weakness: Cornerback
X-factor: LB Isaiah Simmons
They do have the most questions about the cornerback spot because of the untimely and tragic death of Jeff Gladney, whom they had signed in free agency.
However, this team was good enough to win 11 games last season. It shouldn’t be this far behind the 49ers.
No. 29: Seattle Seahawks
Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports
Biggest strength: DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett
Biggest weakness: QB competition between Geno Smith and Drew Lock
X-factor: Darrell Taylor and Uchenna Nwosu
They have four new offensive linemen in the starting lineup, no more Russell Wilson and lost Bobby Wagner and D.J. Reed on defense.
This is going to be a tough year for Seahawks fans.
