Two more blowout wins in the playoffs have given us our 2017 Super Bowl teams. The Atlanta Falcons dominated the Green Bay Packers 44-21 in the final game at the Georgia Dome. Kyle Shanahan’s offense is looking like it’s ready for the big game, and Atlanta’s defense did it’s part to keep Aaron Rodgers from returning to the Super Bowl. The Falcons went 11-5 this season, and were the #2 seed heading into the playoffs.

The New England Patriots made it look easy vs the Pittsburgh Steelers on their road to their 7th Super Bowl appearance in the last 16 seasons. The Patriots defeated the Steelers 36-17 in Foxboro. The Patriots went 14-2 this season, despite their starting QB Tom Brady missing the first 4 games of the year due to a suspension from the Deflategate “scandal”.

The Patriots open as 3 point favorites, and the over/under is starting at 59. Who’s your early pick this year?
