Tony Romo predicts Packers-Jaguars matchup in Super Bowl 53
It’s still way too early to start thinking about who’ll be playing in Super Bowl 53. Training camp hasn’t even started, and so many other things can happen over the course of the season that can alter everything about the big game.
But when put on the spot in a recent appearance on NFL Network, former Cowboys quarterback and current CBS lead analyst Tony Romo says he’s got the Green Bay Packers and the Jacksonville Jaguars as his early picks to meet at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta next February.
“If I had to pick right now? It’s pretty early. Thing about the NFL is things change pretty fast. Injuries happen, a lot of stuff happens,” Romo said per NFL.com’s Nick Shook. “But, if I was picking right now, I’d probably go with Green Bay versus Jacksonville. That would be a tentative, rough guess here in the summer months.”
This isn’t the first time Romo has expressed how high he is on this Packers team. He previously called Green Bay as “the team to beat” in the league this year. Once again, he cites the addition of Jimmy Graham as a major factor in their likely success, as well as their improved secondary.
Meanwhile, he believes that while the New England Patriots are the clear favorite in the AFC, the Jaguars are capable of knocking them off. He notes how close the Jags came to doing so last season’s AFC Championship Game and thinks they can take that next step this year.
Again, it’s still early and so much can and will change from now until February. But that will make it all the more remarkable if Romo’s prediction of a Packers-Jaguars Super Bowl hits the mark.
