The Two NFL Teams That Will Reach the Super Bowl

By Andreas Fanos on December 5, 2017

The NFL season has been unpredictable and exciting and wrought with politics from the start. With just four weeks left in the season, the playoffs are right around the corner. There are teams that can still get into the playoffs, but some of the teams are already set. Even though the Super Bowl is so far off, I believe these two teams will reach it and match up against each other.

Super Bowl Matchup- Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New Orlean Saints

I believe that this will be the matchup for the Super Bowl. The Steelers have the resume needed to win with one of the league’s best receivers in Antonio Brown and behind the best rusher in LeVeon Bell. Ben Roethlisberger is the key to this team as he has had an up and down season. If all three of these players are healthy, this team should go far and reach the promised land.

The Steelers seem to come up short with the New England Patriots in their way, however, I think that the Patriots will lose to the Steelers this postseason because of the Patriots horrendous defense. I understand that they still have one of the best QBs in Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick, but they will have to face an explosive Steelers offense and a better defense. It will be a close game but I believe that the Steelers have an edge this season.

The New Orleans Saints have stunned many with a 9-3 record and have surpassed expectations. They are led by the amazing Drew Brees as quarterback and the running game has picked up with Mark Ingram. Alvin Kamara was a steal and has been playing phenomenal for this team. This kid is something special having all the moves and strength at his disposal and it was a good pick for the Saints in the draft.

The Saints do have other weapons in Ted Ginn Jr., Brandon Coleman, and Willie Snead. They are led by an experienced quarterback, which is why I believe they will get far in the playoffs, even reaching the Super Bowl.

Why not the Philadelphia Eagles and Los Angeles Rams?

I do not think either of these teams will get to the Super Bowl because of their inexperience of veteran players. This truly matters when it comes to the playoffs. Despite their terrific seasons, I do not think they have what it takes. The Steelers and Saints I believe have a higher chance to reach the Super Bowl and win in the playoffs.

Sleeper teams -

The Atlanta Falcons

I believe that the Falcons have something to prove this season after the devastating Super Bowl loss that was handed to them by Tom Brady and the Patriots. The team can very well snag a playoff spot with four weeks left in the season with the Green Bay Packers struggling. The Detriot Lions and the Dallas Cowboys I believe will not make it. Matt Ryan has what it takes to make it to the playoffs and compete, especially with receiver Julio Jones and other weapons at his disposal.

It’s my opinion that Julio Jones is the best receiver in the league and that no one can stop him. It is a pretty daunting task for any defense. If the defense can figure things out, we could see the Falcons reach the promise land behind an explosive offense that is figuring things out and at a good time. I think that everyone should watch out and not be surprised if this team can make a playoff push.

The Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks lost both Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman for the year. Two of the big three on the defensive side of the ball is a killer, although this team certainly has the chance to rise through the ranks. They are certainly a sleeper team because they have MVP candidate Russell Wilson and weapons such as Jimmy Graham and Doug Baldwin. History has proven that people should never count this team out.
