Super Bowl 51 Predictions
There are certain times a year where everyone around the world will take time to sit down with friends and loved ones for the same reason. Whether it’s for a tragedy, holidays like Christmas, or of course, the Super Bowl. It’s no secret that the Super Bowl is one of the most watched events around the globe. It’s a time when people kick back with a cold beverage in one hand, and a chicken wing in the other. While you may end up being one of the many people that ends up eating the estimated 167 million pounds of wings consumed this Sunday, let’s discuss the biggest question other than what political stance Lady Gaga may take during her halftime show…who’s going to win Super Bowl 51?
For a record seventh time, Tom Brady will be competing in the Super Bowl. This year’s game in particular will be one where Pats fans are dying to see Roger Goodell hand over the Lombardi trophy to Brady. Their opponent? An offensive powerhouse, who after years of just falling short, have finally arrived, as Matt Ryan’s Falcons look to win their first ever title for the city of Atlanta.
Some predict that this championship game could be one of the highest scoring championship games of all time. While both defenses aren’t bad, they don’t compare to the defenses of Seattle or Houston. The biggest question will be how New England covers Atlanta’s elite wide out Julio Jones, who has said that no one can stop him one-on-one. He has a point after coming off one of the most dominant performances in conference championship history after destroying the Green Bay Packers defense.
