In a bold early prediction for Super Bowl LIX, Skip Bayless unveiled his belief that the Cincinnati Bengals and the Green Bay Packers will face off in the championship game. He explained that he still holds the belief that Joe Burrow of the Bengals is slightly superior to Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Bayless admitted that he couldn’t back up his claim with statistics since Burrow has struggled with injuries, having only played in one Super Bowl where he performed admirably but narrowly lost. Despite this, Bayless remains a believer in Burrow’s talent.

As for the Green Bay Packers, Bayless admitted to having previously despised the team when Aaron Rodgers was the quarterback. However, he now finds himself intrigued by Jordan Love, the team’s new quarterback, and believes that Love has the potential to lead the Packers to Super Bowl success.

Bayless highlighted the depth of talent in the Packers’ receiving corps, suggesting that they may have the most talented group of receivers in the league.

Overall, Bayless’s prediction reflects his confidence in the Bengals’ rising star quarterback and the potential of the Packers under their new signal-caller.
