After 214 long, daunting days, the NFL is back!

With the New England Patriots heavy favorites to repeat as Super Bowl champions – 11-4 odds – the staff at cover32 weighs in.

Each member of the staff predicts winners of each division, league MVP, and of course, the winner of Super Bowl LII.

The Patriots were picked unanimous to win the AFC East, while the staff is split on the NFC East.

Aaron Rodgers is the heavy favorite to win his third league MVP, with only seven writers voting otherwise.

The most commonly picked Super Bowl match is the rematch that took place just a few years ago featuring the Seahawks and Patriots.
