2022 Chiefs (with the lost of Tyreek Hill I didn't expect them to have much of a chance)

2020 Bucs (Was quite surprised but gave them more of a chance than the 2022 Chiefs)

2019 Chiefs (gave them a chance but wasn't my Super Bowl pick)

2018 Pats (A Pats team winning it all? Not surprised, but they weren't my pre season pick)

2021 Rams (The team I picked to win it all before the season started. So they are here by default)

2020 Bucs - definitely didn't think Brady would win a Super Bowl in year #1 with Tampa. Very surprised.

2018 Patriots - Thought the Pats were going to decline in the sense that I didn't see them reaching a third straight Super Bowl. Surprised.

2021 Rams - Pegged the Rams to do very well, wasn't sure whether Stafford would prove the difference-maker in year #1 though. Somewhat surprised.

2022 Chiefs - Never doubted Mahomes, but thought the loss of Hill combined with the strength of the AFC would make it a little harder to win. A tiny amount of surprise.

2019 Chiefs - I was fully on board with the Mahomes train but thought it might be a little early in his career to win a championship. Ultimately, though, not surprised.

2020 Bucs - This doesn't meet the OP criteria, but through ~8 weeks of the regular season, I thought the offense had no chemistry.

2018 Patriots - Truly felt like the Patriots' dynasty(s) was over. 

2019 Chiefs

2022 Chiefs 

2021  Rams - Would've been shocked had they not won. Writing was on the wall when the league pushed hard for LA; the nail in the coffin was the 3rd down Wilson call.
