Falcons.

Growing up, my dad was a Dolphins fan. Dolphins fans despise the Patriots ever since the 1982 snowplow incident. Best Superbowl I ever watched was my dad and i watching the underdog Giants deny the Patriots.

Not so much a Falcons fan as a non-Patriots fan. Haven't they won enough? Plus maybe I'm a bit jealous that Belichick couldn't have been this successful during his stint with the Browns.

Falcons. Boston sports tend to be insufferable anyway, heh. Besides, Atlanta's offense is insanely good. Devonta Freeman and Vic Beasley are two of my favorite players on that team. Hope they win.

I hope the Falcons win. I guess every guest on ESPN's Mike & Mike has picked the Falcons so far this week. I have a bad feeling the patriots will neutralize the Falcons and make them look average. Seems to happen when teams play the pats. I hope it isn't like last year, where a high powered NFC offense is basically stopped by an AFC defense, but the pats defense isn't as good as the Broncos was last year, and they haven't really been tested.

I think they'll be tested. You should never bet against Belichick, but Kyle Shanahan is the best coordinator in the game. He, like Belichick, is able to dissect teams' weaknesses and use that against them, keeping them on their toes with diverse playcalling and getting the most out of limited players. Even if Atlanta doesn't win, it should at least be a close game.

Falcons! I've lived in GA my whole life and I've been a Falcons fan since the year the first NFL Blitz came out. I've been waiting for us to go back to the Superbowl for a very long time and this team is way better than the 1998 team.

It's weird how many people want us to win because of how hated the Pats are too haha

You can count me on board with the Falcons just because of my Patriots hate.

Too bad the Falcons are going to lose though.
