Super Bowl Picks and Predictions

Both road teams had a lot of people on their respective bandwagons during Championship Sunday in the NFL, but the two home teams prevailed. For the third straight year, the Super Bowl pits the one seeds in both conferences. Who is your early pick?

It seems like a lot of people are on the Panthers bandwagon. There is good reason. Carolina has been the best team in the NFL all season with a 17-1 record. They also looked very impressive in demolishing an Arizona team that had the second best record in the league. The Panthers also sport likely league MVP Cam Newton, a big quarterbacking edge over the current version of Peyton Manning.

I'm not sure you can count out this Denver team with the defense it has, though. The Broncos offense has been uneven all year, but they still are in the big game because of a defense that has stifled the likes of Brady, Rodgers, and other quality quarterbacks.
