best defense does well in the super bowl. the 85 bears, the ravens; seattle a couple of years ago against the broncos. give me a great defense, i like my chances. steve: "right and you look at it, matt ryan for the falcons beat this panthers team. i would rather have peyton manning and the number one defense than matt ryan." josh: "alright, that's the pick. the broncos plus six against carolina. alright thanks steve, not sold that they are the best team." josh: "historically the best defense does well in the super bowl. the 85 bears, the ravens; seattle a couple of years ago against the broncos. give me a great defense, i like my chances. steve: "right and you look at it, matt ryan for the falcons beat this panthers team. i would rather have peyton manning and the number one defense than matt ryan." josh: "alright, that's the pick. the broncos plus six against carolina. alright thanks steve, it's been a good year. those are your nfl picks, we'll see you again next season." us, as always, is steve mikkelson from the atlantis race and sports book. steve you're taking my team and i love it! the broncos, plus six, against the panthers." steve: "yes, my view on
