If defense truly wins championships, then the Chicago Bears are the team everyone is overlooking in the NFC. But the New Orleans Saints are the most well-rounded team in that conference, so they seem very promising, too. I'm going with the SAINTS on the NFC side.
In the AFC, it would be foolish to bet against the New England Patriots as they always seem to find a way to get to the big game. Going with the 'defense wins championships' theme again, that makes the Baltimore Ravens the biggest threat on the AFC side. The Kansas City Chiefs are fun to watch and Patrick Mahomes is an amazing quarterback, but they've been 'exposed' and are beatable due to a weak defense, so I don't think they make it to the big show. I'm going to say PATRIOTS on the AFC side.
So Saints vs. Patriots in the Superbowl and the Saints win it all.
My emotional pick would be the Seattle Seahawks. I love that team. The defense isn't strong enough for a deep run into the playoffs and their offensive line is beat-up, so they will struggle there, too. But...you just never know when a team will 'catch fire' and emotion will have them playing beyond their abilities on paper - GO HAWKS!
