The 2012 NFL season begins tonight, with the New York Giants taking on the Dallas Cowboys. The big question: Which team will bring home the Lombardi Trophy this year?

Are you ready for some football? (Sorry.) We’re just as pumped as everyone else that America’s favorite sport is ready to begin, and after looking at ESPN’s latest power rankings, we can’t help but wonder about how things will go this season … and who will claim the biggest prize in the sport.

Heading into week one the top three teams are the Green Bay Packers, the New England Patriots and the defending-champion Giants. So who wins it? The Houston Texans are a popular pick, while others think the Atlanta Falcons are this year’s dark horse.

What about the Philadelphia Eagles? Last year’s “dream team” is looking for redemption, but can quarterback Michael Vick stay healthy? Then you have the Steelers and Ravens, who will resume their perennial battle in the AFC North.

Get ready, folks. It’s going to be a great season.
