In this episode of the Stacking The Box Podcast, Sterling Holmes and Matt Verderame make Super Bowl 57 picks, talk Week 1 lines and more.
We’ve finally made it. The 2022 NFL season is here.
On Tuesday afternoon, FanSided’s Stacking The Box Podcast went deep into the predictions, with host Sterling Holmes and national reporter Matt Verderame making their Super Bowl picks.
For Holmes and Verderame, the Buffalo Bills came out on top, with the Los Angeles Rams and Green Bay Packers being the NFC champs, respectively. However, the pairing split on their bold predictions for the upcoming campaigns, and both were passionate about who they think might pleasantly surprise in 2022, and who could bitterly disappoint.
