Super Bowl Consensus Picks
The 2017 NFL season is here as 31 teams are looking to dethrone the New England Patriots. The Falcons had the Patriots dead and buried with a 28-3 advantage in Super Bowl LI, but of course, Tom Brady rallied New England back to pull off the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history.

We polled our stable of NFL handicappers to get their opinions on who will play for the championship in Minneapolis this upcoming February. You know what the Patriots are made of (Brady, Bill Belichick, Rob Gronkowski), but who can knock off New England in the AFC and who will represent the NFC?

VegasInsider.com NFL expert Joe Nelson believes Green Bay can challenge New England this season for the title, “The Packers don’t look like a team that will post a historically great regular season, but they look like the clear favorite in the NFC North with a rebuilding Bears team and mediocre prospects for the Vikings and Lions. Green Bay should have a great opportunity to play for a protected top two seed in the NFC playoff picture and with one of the toughest home field edges in the league, the Packers are a threat to get to the Super Bowl again after falling short in recent playoff showings.”

Handicapper Alex Smart sees a rematch of the AFC championship this season, but Pittsburgh coming through, “The Steelers have a top tier QB in Ben Roethlisberger who is coming towards the end of his career and he needs a Super Bowl ring now with the urgency being very real. I'm betting his dreams will come true, as the team boasts a full slate of talented receivers, and the NFL’s top RB Le’Veon Bell (back in camp). Add to that a tough as nails defense that is now mostly healthy and the team looks ready to embark on dethroning the defending Super Bowl Champion Pats in 2017.”

Another team that is receiving plenty of run to return to the Super Bowl is Seattle, who last appeared in 2014 in a four-point defeat to New England. NFL expert Tony Mejia is expecting the Seahawks to put things together and win the NFC championship, “Acquiring Sheldon Richardson to bolster an defensive line that was already capable of causing mayhem in opposing backfield is almost unfair. Although Seattle's offensive line concerns are very real, they'll now be able to play conservatively and rely on a defense, that if healthy and whole, is by far the NFL's best given the new look. Earl Thomas is back and looks 100 percent, so the expectation here is that the Seahawks will wind up with the NFC's top record, turning home-field advantage in the playoffs into a Super Bowl appearance. They'll finish the job this time.”
