With the 2019 NFL season just around the corner, our analysts predict which teams will compete for -- and capture -- the Lombardi Trophy at Super Bowl LIV on February 2, 2020, in Miami.
Who will win Super Bowl LIV
New Orleans Saints (7 votes)
Kansas City Chiefs (5 votes)
Steve Mariucci: Chiefs over Saints. Fifteen years since his last Super Bowl appearance, Andy Reid doesn't let this one slip away. His preparation and superb game plan pay off against the Saints, as his offense -- with Patrick Mahomes leading the way -- puts on one of the best performances ever seen on the big stage.
Cleveland Browns (3 votes)
Tom Blair: Browns over Bears. I've never been able to plausibly pick Cleveland to win the Super Bowl before, and, let's be honest: There are no guarantees I'll ever be able to do it again. Whether the Browns collapse or actually win it all, I'd much rather fully embrace this moment, which could be the high point in my life as a Cleveland football fan, than look back and remember forcing myself to write something about Patrick Mahomes scoring a bunch of points. The poetic justice of this particular matchup, helping the nation move on from the traumatic end to the 2016 MLB playoffs, would be extra sweet.
New England Patriots (3 votes)
Charley Casserly: Patriots over Saints. With two weeks to prepare, Bill Belichick stymies the Saints' offense, and Tom Brady -- helped by a strong power ground game -- does enough in the fourth quarter to win another Super Bowl. It is Belichick's seventh, breaking the all-time record for NFL championships/Super Bowls won by a head coach. A fitting accomplishment for him, and incredible way to cap the 100th year of the NFL!
Oakland Raiders (2 votes)
Akbar Gbajabiamila: Raiders over Rams. In Jon Gruden's regular-season debut last season, Sean McVay and the Rams torched his Raiders in Week 1. That loss has haunted Gruden ever since, but he gets the ultimate revenge on his former student when the Raiders hand Los Angeles back-to-back Super Bowl losses.
Philadelphia Eagles (2 votes)
Atlanta Falcons (1 vote)
Brooke Cersosimo: Falcons over Chiefs: The Falcons finally rid themselves of the 283-pound weight they've been carrying for three years. Matt Ryan gets everyone involved, as the Falcons' offense outduels Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes. But it's Dan Quinn's defense that makes the difference with a late stop.
