I pick the Geelong Cats for a surprise, come from behind win in the Superbowl.

Atlanta will be lucky to get 6 wins. The Patriots devastated their morale so badly they won't recover. You don't blow a 25 point lead in the Super Bowl and ever recover. The coin toss in overtime was a mere formality.
Stick a fork in. It will take a long time to recover from that.

I think Denver can pull 10 wins. I don't expect the Bolts to go over 500
|Ed Mohrmann ||25 Jul 2017 1:48 p.m. PST|
So, are the Geelong Cats leaving Melbourne (I think it's
Melbourne) to join the NFL ????

Too early to have a meaningful prediction. Let's do it again a week before the regular season starts. Otherwise training camp injuries can radically change a teams chances.

That is correct – but those sorts of injuries can happen
anytime. I do a lot of researching and that's my best
shot at what a team *should* accomplish.
Suspensions, too, for whatever reason, can have an effect
greater than an injury to a key player.
There's a school of thought among some sports psychology
types that the Patriots won the Super Bowl as a smack
in the kisser for King Roger….

Rams v. Browns in the Superbowl. Rams win 6-3 in triple overtime.
You heard it here first.

Now *that* would be *special* !
