lets not make any super bowl predictions just yet, since chances are they will all be wrong.

dallas had an off night while the broncos were spot on their game. if this game had happened later in the season, say perhaps in week 10, the broncos could have been the struggling team, and the cowboys on top of their game.

same with any team in the league. injuries, trades, among other things can change the make up and chemistry of any team over the course of the season.

by week 10 or 12 we should have an idea of what each team is doing, and how their season is going. at that point we can start thinking about possible super bowl match ups.

If they can shut down the BEST running back in the league to 8 yrds,they will have no problem with atl's running backs.And von miller has no "fly"zone..

this sounds like Vikings fans early last season. Mid season maybe time to start talking, but there's a lot left in the season.

Whats wrong with making predictions??

Even waiting until week 10 or 12 they are still likely to be wrong...

The "so called experts" at ESPN, SI, Sporting News etc all made playoff and SB predictions before the season even began...

Fan is short for "fanatic" we aren't supposed to be rational about our teams

I also hate when fans tell other fans to "not look ahead" "play it one game at a time"

We aren't players, there is no "bulletin board material from fans"

As of right now Denver vs Atlanta looks as likely as any other potential matchup and more likely than most...

I'm going with NE vs Atlanta in a rematch though that Pat's defense has me a bit worried...

Vikings weren't defending champs,and denver has the best organization(second to patriots) of winning.

They went to playoffs with tebow..So imagine if denver is fully healthy...

Calling Elliott the BEST back in the league is very debatable. David Johnson was the better all around back last season and this season is too early to call.

Denver has a great defense but its only been 2 games. Suggesting Denver vs. Atlanta is not a crazy thought. I personally don't think Denver is the best team in their own division and thus will not make the Super Bowl.

Just when exactly did the Denver D face the BEST running back this season?
