It's that time of the year when I look at the potential Super Bowl match-ups and rank them in order of preference.
Starting from the game I would least like to watch.
New England .vs. Carolina
This isn't a knock on Carolina. It's against their potential opponents in this one. There's a reason why I have the Panthers at the bottom of the list. You find out in a line or two. For what it's worth, I don't hate this game. I'd just rather a different result than their last meeting in 2004.
New England .vs. Arizona
At the start of the year, I predicted the Arizona Cardinals would win the Super Bowl in 2016. So, I have to root for them in this spot despite not really caring THAT much which NFC makes it to the big game.
Denver .vs. Carolina
This one could be great. And it'll mean a Peyton Manning led team makes it to the big dance for another year.
Denver .vs. Arizona
It'll be win-win here. I'd much rather see Peyton Manning go off into the sunset with another Super Bowl win. If not - I'll be able to give myself a point after guessing Arizona will win the Super Bowl at the start of the year.
