At the midpoint of the 2015 NFL season, our analysts refresh their predictions on the major individual awards, the entire playoff field and Championship Sunday/Super Bowl outcomes.
Super Bowl 50
Willie McGinest: Patriots over Packers. The Patriots' defense will figure out Green Bay's offense, and not having Jordy Nelson will make things a little easier. The Patriots' offense is playing at a high level, and teams don't always know what's coming. It'll be a close game, but New England will win.
Gil Brandt: Patriots over Panthers. As the underdog, Carolina will be the fans' darling in Super Bowl 50. But I think Brady and the Pats' offense will be too much for the Panthers. Cam Newton wins games in the fourth quarter, and I'm not sure he'll be able to come back against New England late in this one.
