The Super Bowl is still over half a season away, but the league is starting to take shape and show us some potential teams that could be playing for the Vince Lombardi trophy next February in Houston.
Teams like the Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, Denver Broncos, and the Oakland Raiders have been considered thanks to their start of the season, but those aren't the top favorites to make the big game according to the President of the United States.

He said: “At this point you would have to put your money on (Tom) Brady again. I don’t see any real strong teams. Seattle and Patriots have a rematch, that’s my call.”
If the president's prediction comes true, it would be a rematch of Super Bowl XLIX, which was won by a scoreline of 28-24 by the Patriots after they came back to win in the fourth quarter by scoring 14 unanswered points.
The most iconic moment of that game was when New England's undrafted rookie Malcolm Butler made a game-saving interception late in the game on the goal-line to secure the result for his team.
The president didn't pick a winner of the game, but if it turns out to be true, it's bound to be another fantastic game between arguably two of the best teams in the league. While the Patriots look well on their way to another Super Bowl, the Seahawks need to get their offense in order if they are to join them.
