Broadcaster picks for Super Bowl UPDATED

Kevin Connors, ESPN, former WTZA/RNN sports anchor
Patriots 33, Falcons 21 – There’s not a person in America more sick of the Patriots than I am.
I’m a New York native, who grew up on Long Island, went to college in upstate New York and spent more than half my professional life working in New York.
On top of it I’m a Bills fan who now lives in New England. I’ve had it with the Patriots. HAD it!!
But I’m not betting against them.

Jason Barrett, former WEOK sports show host, radio program director
Patriots 34, Falcons 30 – I’ll be pulling for Atlanta but there’s just something about Belichick and Brady that scares me in this contest. Given that New England’s Kryptonite (Eli Manning and Tom Coughlin) won’t be on the other side of the field, Roger Goodell is one step away from handing a Super Bowl trophy over to the Hall of Fame quarterback he had investigated, and the first championship team to visit Donald Trump’s White House could potentially be the one which had two of its highest-profile people (Brady and Belichick ) support him during a time when many others stayed in the background, there’s just too much working against the Falcons.

Ed Coleman, WFAN sports anchor
Falcons 34, Patriots 30 – It’s not easy for me to say. I go back to the days of Babe Parilli, Bob Dee and Houston Antwine when they were the Boston – not New England – Patriots. And Tom Brady has his mom and a showdown with Goodell for extra motivation. But I think the Falcons have too many weapons at their disposal, and a young, quick defense that may cause some problems. I fly with the birds … and hope that I’m wrong!

Eric Frede, former Cable 6 sports anchor, SNY’s UConn announcer
Patriots 38, Falcons 24 – Tom Brady four touchdowns, wins MVP, thinks about hitting Roger Goodell over the head with the MVP trophy … but takes the high road.

Chris Watson, Spectrum sports announcer
Patriots 31, Falcons 26 – Brady, Belichick and company are too motivated to stick it to Goodell and the rest of the NFL to lose this game. Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and the Falcons offense has been lights out this season, but with two weeks to prepare for them I think Matt Patricia and Belichick will have a solid game plan on D to slow them down. I think Martellus Bennett has a big day for the Pats offense.

Tony Morino, Army football sidelines, former Time Warner sports anchor
Patriots 37, Falcons 17 – I expect another MVP performance by Tom Brady while “Matty Ice” melts under the pressure. Defense wins championships so Tom Brady and Bill Belichick will win another Super Bowl.

Rich DeMarco, Army sports announcer
Patriots 38, Falcons 21 – I don’t think Atlanta has the pass rush, nor the ball-control offense needed to beat New England. I think the Patriots will get up early and then go into cruise control. Tom Brady will win his fourth Super Bowl MVP and cement his place as the greatest of all time.

J.W. Stewart, NBC Hartford sports anchor, former ESPNews and Sports1 anchor
Patriots 31, Falcons 17 – The NFL’s No. 1 defense keeps the NFL’s No. 1 offense under wraps. I just can’t see the Patriots defense giving up 34 points to the Falcons (which is what Atlanta averaged during the regular season). Bill Belichick takes away WR Julio Jones (Atlanta’s best offensive weapon), the Patriots protect Tom Brady (which is priority No. 1) and New England wins its fifth Super Bowl in the Brady/Belichick Era.

Rick Zolzer, veteran sports anchor, Renegades public address
Patriots 39, Falcons 31 – Giving the head coach of the Pats two weeks to prepare for a team can lead to bad things for that team.

Rick Schultz, former Renegades and Army sports announcer
Patriots 34, Falcons 24 – Tom Brady will have all the time he needs in the pocket.

Bruce Beck, WNBC-4 sports anchor
Patriots 34 Falcons 24 – I will be rooting hard for the Falcons but believe Belichick will find a way to neutralize Julio Jones and win this game. Brady & Belichick are on the cusp of history and I think this “redemption” thing, has Brady more focused than ever. Atlanta will score in this game but not nearly enough and Julian Edelman goes for double digit catches and two touchdowns.

Dean Darling, Army and Marist sports announcer
Falcons 32, Patriots 28 , Atlanta scores late to win it .

Ed Weir, Marist radio announcer
Falcons 35, Patriots 32 – I am going to stick with Matty Ice. I think he’s a terrific player. It’s going to be a good game.

Steve Eggink, Marist radio announcer
Falcons 30, Patriots 24 – Matt Ryan is going to have a career day.

Zach Daly, Army sports announcer
Falcons 31 Patriots 28 – Matt Ryan finds his groove early and gets Atlanta out in front. Atlanta scores three touchdowns in the first half, but Brady get the Patriots on top late in the fourth. Ryan answers
Brady with a touchdown drive of his own to seal the Falcons win. Vic Beasley will be key for Atlanta. He needs to get pressure on Brady and cause a turnover to help Atlanta set the tone. If he can force Brady
into a bad decision (if that’s even possible) that will bode well for the Falcons.

Geoff Brault, Marist sports announcer
Falcons 34, Patriots 31 – Wishful thinking perhaps, but if the Cavs and Cubs can end long title droughts, maybe it’s time for Atlanta to get their second professional championship, and the Falcons first in 51 years.

Len Berman, WOR talk show host, former NBC Sports, WNBC-4 anchor
Falcons 31, Patriots 21 – The year (or two) of the upsets continues.

Jack George, WALL radio sports anchor
Falcons 27, Patriots 24 – I predict a late field goal by the Falcons, and the discovery of more deflated footballs.

Lars Lifrak, former Cablevision sports anchor
Falcons 38, Patriots 24
