Playoff Predictions: Could That Other Los Angeles Team Win the Super Bowl?

New, comments
NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Which two teams do you think will meet in the Super Bowl and who ends up leaving as champions?

Jamie Sewell: Kansas City Chiefs. They’ll be struggling at halftime against the Titans and Mahomes will come in. The Chiefs will put up 24 unanswered points, Mahomes will become the starter and the rest will be history. They’ll beat the Rams there. Big fan of the Rams this year. They’re well-coached, have some serious talent on both sides of the ball, and they’ll be able to ride Todd Gurley down the stretch.

Matthew Stanley: The Rams look pretty stellar right now. They have studs on both sides of the ball, they have fantastic coaching, and the Eagles lost Carson Wentz. The Rams win both the Super Bowl and score a knock out blow in the “fight” for LA.

Richard Wade: I think we get a rematch of Super Bowl XXXVI and with the same result. The Rams are good but I can’t pick a team starting Jared Goff to beat a team starting Tom Brady. And Sean McVay is good, but he’s no Bill Belichick.

Louis Gorini: History shows us to not bet against the Patriots. So out of the AFC, I expect New England to get to the Super Bowl and win it. As for the NFC, I am going to go ahead and pick the New Orleans Saints. Their running game will travel well and carry them on the road. And they also have the best QB among all the remaining NFC teams. Brees can still light it up if they get in a shoot out.

Kyle Posey: Steelers beat the Saints. Antonio Brown gets healthy. Le’Veon Bell can’t be stopped. They upset the Pats on the road & beat the Saints in a high scoring battle.

Michael Peterson: Rams keep chugging along and inevitably run into the Patriots in the Super Bowl. It’s a tight game through the first three quarters before each team trades late touchdowns in the fourth before the Rams make a big stop on defense. With less than two minutes, Jared Goff leads the team downfield, including a miracle type catch by Cooper Kupp a la Manningham/Tyree en route to a last-second field goal to seal the victory.

Ruben J. Gonzalez: Its really hard for me to keep the Patriots out of the Super Bowl, just for the simple fact they know how to get there by winning games multiple ways. Most other teams have one blueprint and need that blueprint to succeed. So put the Pats in on the AFC side. On the NFC side, I’m totally rooting for the Vikings and Case Keenum. As a sports anchor in Texas, I covered Keenum during his high school years. He was our Player of the Year as a junior and I remember then that there was something special about him. Never knew it could be that he would be a future Super Bowl MVP. Crossing my fingers.
