SUPER BOWL LII, MINNEAPOLIS
Patriots over Seahawks


It would not be a mistake to assume that this Super Bowl will be a rematch. It is possible that the Falcons could represent the NFC as well as any of my other NFC playoff picks given how wide open that conference is right now. A healthy Russell Wilson as well as the Seahawks matching up against the NFC East, AFC West, and a NFC West that is on the downside puts them in a good position to earn homefield throughout the playoffs.

As for my AFC representative, the Patriots are in a class of their own. Pittsburgh, if they can avoid the injury bug, could give New England a game but not once has the Steelers beaten the Patriots in the playoffs from 2000 onward. The Raiders are on the ups while the Texans and Titans are just filling out the bracket.

Super Bowl LII will be similar to Super Bowl XLIV in the matchup but I do not expect it will have the same dramatic ending.
