Broncos fans will love Sean Payton’s pick for Super Bowl LVII

The Denver Broncos have hired Sean Payton as their new head coach, but he’s also still under contract as an analyst with Fox.

The Broncos will allow Payton to finish out his contract with Fox and appear on the network for their Super Bowl LVII coverage on Saturday and Sunday. After that, Payton will return to Denver to continue building his coaching staff.

“I’m kind of carrying two lunch pails here,” Payton said of joining the Broncos while still working in television.

As part of the NFL on Fox pregame show, Payton will be asked to predict a Super Bowl LVII winner between the Philadelphia Eagles (NFC) and Kansas City Chiefs (AFC). Fans in Denver will love Payton’s prediction.

“I’m picking the Eagles,” Payton said. “We never want anyone in our division to win anything. The perfect weekend for a Broncos fan is we get a win and the other three lose.”

Well said, coach. You’ll fit right in.
