Meury interviewed students and faculty on The Hill about their predictions for the Super Bowl.

“I think the Patriots are the safest bet to win the Super Bowl. Their high-powered offense scores with ease regardless of the personnel in the game. With the return of Tom Brady they will be unstoppable. They also have an underrated defense led by Donta Hightower and Devin McCourty. They match up well against any team in the league.” - Dan Jaques '17

“Offense sells tickets, but defense wins championships. Equipped with one of the most complete defenses in the NFL, the Minnesota Vikings are serious contenders against any team and have a great shot to win the Superbowl.” - Dave Kennedy ’17

“I would have to go with the New England Patriots. They have a good coaching staff, a proven system, and passionate players who work together.” - Kai Bynum

“My money is on my beloved Miami Dolphins getting in as a wild card and surprising people like the '07 Giants.  They'll ride a constantly-improving defense and Jarvis Landry will have as many broken tackles as receptions on the way to a first-team All-Pro season.” - Joshua Gleason

“The Giants will win the Superbowl this year because Victor Cruz is back and he and Odell will make an unstoppable offense, along with Eli Manning who is really good-looking.” - Rachel Stefanowski ’17

“I think it will be the Philadelphia Eagles from the NFC and the Denver Broncos from the AFC with Philly taking the ’ship. Under the leadership of Doug Pederson and Carson Wentz, the Eagles will put together a solid three-loss regular season, whereas rookie Trevor Siemian and his strong wide receiving core can find themselves taking the loss after a four-loss, one-tie regular season.”  - Jordan Shand ’19
