The NFL season has not long begun, and already fans are beginning to speculate who is likely to make it to the Super Bowl in February next year. We're taking a look back at this year's Super Bowl and it was an exciting event to say the least. The Panthers went against the Broncos, and it was the Broncos that reigned supreme after a dominant defensive performance to topple the Panthers 24-10. The Super Bowl is one of the biggest sporting events in the world, and with coverage around the world and millions of viewers, it's no surprise that the Super Bowl 50 this year caught many an eye. Who do you think will make it to the Super Bowl next year?
NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament
This is another event that kicked off in the early part of this year. If you're a fan of college basketball, then you would have seen this tournament as a whirlwind of unpredictability and a lot of interesting results. Villanova and North Carolina made it to the title game, and with many wins and upsets throughout, there was no better tournament to enjoy. The title game was a physical one, with the first half belonging totally to Carolina, but Villanova eventually found an offense and their defense began to settle taking control of the game. With the pressure building on Villanova, now is the time to look forward to the three weeks at the end of March/beginning of April as one of the most exciting in the sporting calendar.
2016 World Series
The postseason of MLB is one of the most exciting, with the 112th World Series beginning on October 25th. The competitors are yet to be determined, but there are many rumors about who it may be. The current champions are the Kansas City Royals, who faced the New York Mets in 2015, and won after game five with the final score being 7-2. This is the first time that the World Series was won by the Kansas City Royals in 30 years. As of yet, no team has won consecutively single the New York Yankees in 1999 and 2000, but the Kansas City Royals will be looking to change this quite quickly. With the playoffs currently underway, the Toronto Blue Jays and Cleveland Indians are some of the most favored to reach the MLB World Series this year.
