    Who's winning Super Bowl LVII?

    The Buffalo Bills are solid this year and are looking like favourites to me.

    Surprised at how well The Dallas Cowboys are doing with their second string QB Cooper Rush. I have always had a soft spot for them.

    The LA Rams are fairly mediocre. I'd be surprised if they made the playoffs.

    Thoughts?

    Screw the NFL.

    It's almost hockey season.

    I follow college football more than pro. I did see a piece last night (actually twice) where they were advertising an NFL program and they seemed high on the LA Rams still, which is different than your analysis.

    I think Miami was a contender until Tua got hurt... twice. That seemed to
    take some air out of their sails for sure.

    If the Bills can stay healthy they have a great chance. Right now they have a ton of injuries. Fingers Crossed. :)

    Enjoy!

    I am new to US sports being a football (soccer) follower for almost my entire existence. I have suddenly had an odd interest in the NFL over the last year or so though.

    I see ESPN are still high on the Rams for some reason. I don't quite get it as they were outsiders in the playoffs last season and it was somewhat of a miracle to see them pick up the Super Bowl. I know they're favourites vs Dallas this weekend but I can foresee an upset. I hope Dak isn't playing again, he should take another week off to ensure recovery.

    The Eagles are looking sharp obviously, being 4-0, so I wouldn't see past them either... they should cruise past the Cardinals.

    Seems like Tua should take a few more weeks off now as that head injury could have long-term effects on him. I can see why the coach played him, given that he passed all the concussion protocols provided by the NFL and was signed off by the team doctor. It was just a big horrific seeing him throwing up gang signs after taking a massive clobbering...

    I hope so too! If any organisation's players/fans deserve to pick up a Super Bowl trophy, it's the Bills!

    Just curious, what NFL teeam you routing for if any?

    Cooper Rush is playing awesome too, so why rush Dak is right!!

    The Eagles are looking sharp obviously, being 4-0, so I wouldn't see

    Being a Giants fan, I hope not. But you are probably right. I think eagles are a lot better than the Cardinals, but you never know what can happen on any given Sunday!!

    and was signed off by the team doctor. It was just a big horrific seeing him throwing up gang signs after taking a massive clobbering...

    Yeah, its never really bothered me seeing guys get banged up with arms and legs, etc... But head injuries are a scary thing. I thought it was scary enough watching Daniel Jones stumble to the sidelines last year after getting clobbered, but seeing Tua's hands like that you sorta knew it was something serious..

    Yeah, Wide right still hurts. I feel they have the team this year. If injuries keep them from being that team it would suck. I say this because it's so hard to keep players for long like the old days. I'm afraid that if they don't do it this year it might not happen.

    That was not his demeanor in college so that seemed a little off.

    Probably the Cowboys. It's about time the biggest sports franchise in the world got back to winning ways! I personally can't see it though. We'll see how they do later today.

    Cooper Rush is playing awesome too, so why rush Dak is right!!

    Absolutely. It's Rush's time to shine and at 3-0 why change something that works just to bring back your big name QB? Dak wasn't exactly inspiring in the first game either so that should be taken into account also.

    Being a Giants fan, I hope not. But you are probably right. I think eagles are a lot better than the Cardinals, but you never know what can happen on any given Sunday!!

    I didn't get to see the game but what an awesome comeback against the Packers! Makes me wish I had gotten tickets to see the game. The Giants are having a strong season so I would see them as dark horses this time around.

    Yeah, its never really bothered me seeing guys get banged up with arms and legs, etc... But head injuries are a scary thing. I thought it was scary enough watching Daniel Jones stumble to the sidelines last year after getting clobbered, but seeing Tua's hands like that you sorta knew it was something serious..

    Yeah, CTE is no laughing matter so I hope the head-knock has no lasting effects. I guess injuries are a part of the game... I always found it strange that the average NFL player has a career lasting around 3 seasons when soccer players average around 15-20 seasons. It must be the injuries building up and becoming unmanageable forcing players to chuck it due to health concerns and/or a decline in performance.

    I saw an ESPN documentary called the Four Falls of Buffalo and was gutted for Norwood and everyone associated with the Bills. They defintely deserve a Super Bowl and I would love to see that happen... it was brtual watching them go up against the greatest Dallas Cowboys team ever assembled lead by the legendary Troy Aikman. Made me feel like it was a foregone conclusion as there was no winning against THAT team.

    Ah well, at least you guys are kicking Steeler ass as I type this :P.

    If it had been someone like Pacman Jones, none of us would have been any the wiser.
