USA Today predicts powerhouse Super Bowl 51 opponents

Not too much of a surprise here.

We're just a few weeks out from the NFL Draft, which means months until training camp and eventually the regular season opens up.

But it's never too soon to start talking football, and for the fine people over at For The Win, a prediction of every regular-season game and eventual playoff contest left the Green Bay Packers against the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl, with Tom Brady and Co. walking off with yet another Super Bowl championship.

That dovetails with the early Las Vegas odds, which tabs the Patriots an 8-1 Super Bowl favorite and the Packers at 10-1.

Brady could serve a four-game suspension stemming from DeflateGate if the NFL's appeal goes through. That wouldn't set the Patriots back far in a relatively weak AFC East.

The Packers will get a healthy Jordy Nelson back to fill in the depleted Green Back receiving corps.

From an AFC perspective, the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Bengals and even the Oakland Raiders could get hot late and make a run. From the NFC, it's tough not to imagine a healthy Carolina Panthers, Seattle Seahawks or Dallas Cowboys making things interesting.

Both organizations have their fair share of obstacles, but we could easily see either, if not both squads in Super Bowl 51 next year.
