ESPN’s NFL personalities took a stab at predicting the AFC and NFC champions as well as the 2017 Super Bowl winner and MVP and to my surprise the KC Chiefs were picked by a couple of people.
First up, Adam Schefter, he of five million Twitter followers, has the Chiefs and Packers in the next Super Bowl. Schefter picks Green Bay to win and Aaron Rodgers to win the MVP.
Next, Chris Berman, who was once great but is not anymore, picks the Chiefs to meet the Seahawks in the Super Bowl. He has Seattle winning and the league MVP going to Russell Wilson.
Finally, Joe Banner, former Eagles and Browns executive, has the Chiefs facing off against the Packers. Once again, the Chiefs aren’t winning. Banner has Rodgers winning the MVP too.
The rest of the ESPN folks picked mostly the Steelers and Patriots in the AFC and mostly the Packers, Panthers, Cardinals and Seahawks in the NFC.
