And so it begins.

The Sporting News picked the Jets to beat the Cowboys in Super Bowl XLV.

So far this year both the Jets and the Dolphins have declared themselves champions of Super Bowl XLV. Not much chirping coming out of Cowboys camp, which is odd, as Jerry Jones has never been a reserved man. Though it's only June.

The Sporting News downplayed the possible locker room friction with the amount of star power the Jets acquired in the offseason in Santonio Holmes, LaDainian Tomlinson, Antonio Cromartie and Jason Taylor, and are quite high on the Jets notoriously suffocating D.

Honestly it seems the less likely team to make the big game is the Cowboys. Because that would mean Tony Romo has to perform in a big spot, which as we have seen in the past, can be kind of a tough area for him.
