That leads to the most burning question entering the new season: Who will win this year's Super Bowl?
More often than not, the annual winner of football's biggest prize is one of a handful of contenders, but sometimes, a team comes out of nowhere to find themselves hoisting the Lombardi Trophy by season's end.
This year, the Patriots, Seahawks, Broncos, Packers, and Colts are the most obvious contenders. Those were the teams consistently at the top in our roundup of the Week 1 power rankings, and those are the top five teams in SB Nation's most recent rankings as well.
Oh, and of course we all know about the Bengals. They are annually mentioned among the 'possible' contenders since they've made the playoffs for four-straight seasons. Is this the year they finally break through?
Come vote on it, voice your thoughts about your pick, and talk about tonight's regular-season opener between the Steelers and Patriots.
