It's Super Bowl week in the NFL, and sadly, no New York teams will be competing for the Lombardi Trophy.

The Buffalo Bills had the best odds to win it all this year, but were eliminated by Cincinnati in the Divisional Round. The Giants and Jets both had breakout seasons, but the Jets failed to make the playoffs, and the Giants' Cinderella story ended with a loss to Philadelphia.

Now, it's the Eagles and the Chiefs competing in Super Bowl LVII, and we're here to give you reasons not only to watch, but to cheer for one of these teams to win it all on Sunday.
