Cowboys legend Tony Romo predicts Packers-Jaguars Super Bowl next season

The start of the 2018 regular season is just under two months away,  but things are beginning to take shape around the league.

With that in mind, former Dallas Cowboys star quarterback Tony Romo during a recent interview with The NFL Network made his Super Bowl prediction that he believes the Green Bay Packers will take on Jacksonville Jaguars in Atlanta next February. (h/t Nick Shook of NFL.com)

“If I had to pick right now? It’s pretty early,” Romo said when asked by NFL Network’s Lindsay Rhodes who he saw meeting in Super Bowl LIII. “Thing about the NFL is things change pretty fast. Injuries happen, a lot of stuff happens, but, um… 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.”

The Packers are annually a popular pick due to the presence of star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The 34-year-old saw his 2017 season heavily impacted by a fractured collarbone that put the team at a disadvantage narrowly missing out on the playoffs.

Rodgers is expected to be at full strength next season along with being highly motivated to prove that he’s still one of the best quarterbacks in the league. Defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles should be in the conversation alongside the New Orleans Saints, Minnesota Vikings, and Los Angeles Rams.

Meanwhile, the Jaguars had taken a tremendous step forward last season reaching the AFC Championship game for the first time in nearly two decades narrowly falling to the New England Patriots.

Jacksonville has put together a talented roster on both sides of the ball behind their stout defense and strong running game led by emerging star running back Leonard Fournette. Although the Jaguars are an intriguing choice, the Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers will likely be in the mix to contend for the Super Bowl in the AFC.
