The Super Bowl will be played in New Orleans on Feb. 5, 2018.
The 2018 Super Bowl XLVIII is set for Feb. 6 in New York.
Here are the Superbowl picks from Bleacher Report NFL Insider Jason Cole.
New England Patriots (14-2) The Patriots have won five of six games and have won seven straight.
They will face off against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
New York has won five games in a row, including the season opener against the Indianapolis Colts.
They won the AFC East title last season, and they are coming off a strong victory over the Miami Dolphins on the last weekend of the regular season.
New Orleans won’t be without some help, with the loss of wide receiver Chris Hogan to a concussion.
But it’s worth noting that the Patriots won’t have to rely on any of their top players, as the team is set to bring in a number of veterans.
Newcomers Tavon Austin and T.Y. Hilton are expected to make an immediate impact, as are veteran offensive linemen Kevin Zeitler and Kyle Love.
Coach Bill Belichick will have some veteran depth, as well.
But this team has a lot of young talent, and it could easily get some big plays in a big game.
Indianapolis Colts (15-2-1) Indianapolis has been very inconsistent this season.
The Colts lost their first three games and dropped a pair of games to the Carolina Panthers.
The team is coming off their first division title in seven years, and has won seven of its last eight games.
The biggest story will be quarterback Andrew Luck, who has been struggling to throw consistently.
He is 6-4 with a 122.7 passer rating in three starts this season and has yet to complete more than 63 percent of his passes.
Indianapolis will face a Buffalo Bills defense that is tied for first in the NFL in yards allowed per game at 35.2.
This is an exciting matchup, but the Colts should be able to hold their own in the second half.
Carolina Panthers (11-4) After losing quarterback Cam Newton for the season, the Panthers will have a tough time replacing him.
After playing well against the New England Broncos last week, Carolina will have to be wary of the Seattle Seahawks in their return to the playoffs.
Seattle is the team to beat, as they are No. 1 in total defense.
Carolina will need to take care of business early and often in this matchup.
Dallas Cowboys (9-6) Dallas has a good chance to beat the New York Jets in the NFC East title game, but they have to beat Kansas City in the divisional round.
The Cowboys are tied for third in total offense and have allowed just 27.9 points per game.
Dallas is also No. 2 in the league in passing yards per game (305.4), and it should be tough for the Jets offense to stop them in the passing game.
New Mexico Lobos (7-6-1-1, NR) The Lobos were just 2-7 in their final regular season game against the San Diego State Aztecs, but now they’re coming off another victory.
This game is going to be very close, and the Lobos are going to have to put together some big games against their rivals.
Miami Dolphins (8-7) Miami’s defense has improved as the season has gone on.
It has been good, but Miami will have an uphill battle against the Denver Broncos.
This one is going be a tight contest, and Miami should be fine in the first half.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8.5-8) Tampa Bay has been playing very well.
The Bucs are No 1 in points allowed per drive (34.4) and they have been winning games in which they are leading.
The Buccaneers have won three straight and four of five, and coach Dirk Koetter should have a team that can get a win in the fourth quarter.
New Zealand Warriors (10-5) New Zealand has won three of four, and its defense is finally starting to pick up steam.
The Warriors have played well in recent weeks, but their offense has not been quite as impressive.
The Kiwis have been averaging 28.2 points per contest and 28.3 points per drive.
They are No 10 in total yards allowed (416.4 per game) and No. 12 in points per possession (37.1).
San Diego Chargers (10.5) The Chargers are in a tough spot at the moment.
They have a bye and are hoping to beat either the Arizona Cardinals or the Oakland Raiders on the road in the next week.
The Chargers have had some issues this season, but are still expected to win the division.
Jacksonville Jaguars (11.5).
Jacksonville is back on track after an offseason that saw
