Although Super Bowl 2014 had yet to be played at the time of publication, it is never too early to look forward to next season. Of course there is a ton of things on and off the field that will change before we ever get to Super Bowl 2015 and we realize there is a very good chance that the following prediction will be completely wrong. Still, we couldn't keep ourselves from wondering.
Predictions for the 2015 Super Bowl:
In the AFC Championship next season we predict it will be the San Diego Chargers vs. the Denver Broncos. The Chargers will come into this matchup as three point underdogs to the Broncos despite the fact that Philip Rivers will have had an MVP type season up to this point.

The Chargers will try to play things conservative on offense in an attempt to keep the football out of Peyton Manning's hands. Unfortunately, the Chargers defense will give up too many big pass plays which will result in a Broncos win and a second straight trip to the Super Bowl.
In the NFC Championship game the Seattle Seahawks will face the Green Bay Packers. The Seahawks will once again have one of the best defenses in the NFL, but they will have to travel to Lambeau due to Green Bay's home field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.
We expect this to be a very tight four quarter football game. Although Aaron Rodgers will get all of the attention, we believe Eddie Lacy will be the difference maker in this matchup. Marshawn Lynch will have a good day on the ground for the Seahawks, but Lacy will out-perform him and lead the Packers to the Super Bowl.
Green Bay Packers vs. Denver Broncos
This will certainly be one of the most anticipated Super Bowl in years. It will be advertised as Aaron Rodgers vs. Peyton Manning even though the real star in Green Bay throughout the season will have been the play of running back Eddie Lacy.
Unlike recent Super Bowls, Packers vs. Broncos will be somewhat of a shoot-out with both teams scoring over 30 points. At the end of the day, it will be the play of Eddie Lacy once again that makes the difference. He will help the Packers control the time of possession which will allow Green Bay to run out the clock at the end of the game - never allowing Peyton Manning a chance at making a comeback.
At the end of the game, Eddie Lacy will be named the Super Bowl MVP.
