1. Cincinnati Bengals win the Super Bowl, and party so hard later in Las Vegas!

Yeah, surprise! I’m gonna ride or die with the 2023 Bengals this year, as they are my pick to win the Super Bowl. Right now, I would say they beat the Dallas Cowboys in Las Vegas, but it could also be the Philadelphia Eagles or the San Francisco 49ers coming out of the NFC. The point is this feels like the Bengals’ year, even more so than how last year was supposed to be the Bills’ season.

It’s team with tremendous roster construction, an elite coaching staff and a top-three quarterback in the game today, still on a rookie deal for that matter. We also have to appreciate that Bengals ownership is no longer a hinderance, but a strength for this franchise. There is a level of gratitude towards what Burrow has brought them and there is a newfound sense of bravery in the building.

Look. Most quarterbacks never get back to the Super Bowl these days if they lost their first one. I think the last quarterback to start out his career 0-for in the Super Bowl and still win one was John Elway. Well, guess what? He too was a college football legend, went No. 1 overall coming out and deliver his beloved franchise its first Lombardi Trophy. That is what Burrow is going to do so soon.

If the Atlanta Falcons can’t win the Super Bowl, then I want it to be the Cincinnati Bengals instead.
