Colin Cowherd: “My Super Bowl Bubble usually has about eight teams but this year it's five. I think the top is very strong. I think the Niners, Bills, Bengals, Chiefs, and Philly are most likely to win, I feel strongly about that. I do think the Chargers, Packers, and Dallas have either momentum, personnel, or an identity that could be very dangerous. I don’t like Minnesota in big spots, they have no history that says they’re gonna win, and their defense is absolutely atrocious. It’s hard to win with a TERRIBLE defense and Minnesota’s is terrible. Jacksonville doesn’t have the big-time experience, I think they can maybe get in and win a playoff game, that’s about it, especially when you’ve got Burrow, Allen, Mahomes, and Herbert. That’s a one-playoff win team in Dallas. You’re going to open in Tampa and win over an anemic offense, but Dallas in their second game is most likely to go to a Philadelphia or San Francisco and lose. Dallas can get a break— if Green Bay beats San Francisco then Dallas could play the winner of the Minnesota/New York Giants, and then you’re a two-win playoff team, you’d beat those teams. Minnesota’s defense is atrocious, and the Giants offense is pretty weak. Those fives teams in my Bubble have the best rosters in football. San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Buffalo’s rosters are stacked, Cincinnati’s offense is stacked with an underrated defense, and you’ve got Andy Reid and Mahomes. The Chargers defense is not great, and Green Bay’s weapons are not as great, and Dallas— let’s be honest, Dak tends to be a complementary player, not a driving force to wins.” (Full Segment Above)
