Both teams look really good. Going with the Pats though.

I selected Pats x 14. It's surely a sign that Atlanta will at least beat the LV spread.

Falcons by 8-14. Pats will score but won't be able to stop 'em. Have always been a Packer fan but was glad to see Atlanta make it as they are a better matchup to NE.

I am thinking/hoping that it will be a good game. Atlanta looked invincible yesterday and I have been a fan of Matt Ryan ever since his BC days so it is good to see him having an impressive MVP season. My aunt got to know him when he was at BC and told me that he is a really good guy and was very good with my cousin's autistic son and that made an impression on me.

The Pats looked very good yesterday AND the big thing to me is that Brady/Belichick have two weeks to game plan for Atlanta and I think that throws the Patriots to a slight advantage.

Thank you! Now I have learned that the two teams this year will be the Patriots and the Falcons.

And they say you don't learn anything from fooling around on the internet all day....

Given that I thought it might end up being a Packers-Steelers SB, I'm not sure that my prediction is noteworthy...

Whatever you're drinking, lay off of it... it is making you delusional.

The Patriots win a competitive game by 7 or less much like all of their SB wins.

Go Pats.

Rude much? I don't give the first damn who wins. All this strutting rooster crap is silly, and, unless you're on the field, they aren't "your" team...

Can't take a joke much?

If it wasn't for the fans then they wouldn't be on the field.
