Super Bowl XLVI: Ryan Fitzpatrick Likes Patriots Over Giants

For a second straight year, Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is intimately familiar with football teams playing for league championships.

In 2010, Fitzpatrick was asked by The Dan Patrick Show to appear as a so-called expert on the four teams then competing in last year's conference championship games: the Pittsburgh Steelers, New York Jets, Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers. The Bills had played all four teams in the regular season (including the Jets twice, giving them an 0-5 record in those games), so Fitzpatrick was a good person to ask about those teams, and particularly their defenses.

This year, Fitzpatrick faced both teams set to compete in Super Bowl XLVI: the New England Patriots (twice) and the New York Giants. (The Bills were 1-2 in those contests.) Per the folks at SiriusXM NFL Radio, Fitzpatrick likes the Patriots to win it all this year - though that's not particularly pleasing to him.

"I'm a Bill, so I don't want to see them win," Fitzpatrick told the station.

Who's with Fitzpatrick, both in game prediction and overall sentiment?
