Strahan Likes Falcons to Win Super Bowl LI

Michael Strahan knows a thing or two about winning a Super Bowl, so when the co-host of "Fox NFL Sunday" makes his predictions, you listen.

Strahan recently made an appearance on the "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" where he made his Super Bowl LI picks, backing the Falcons to win it all come Feb. 5.

After winning a Super Bowl with the New York Giants in 2007, the former defensive end knows what it takes to hoist the Lombardi Trophy.

And he sees that in Atlanta with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones leading the way.

Ryan and Jones are two of the league's most humble superstars, something Strahan deeply admires.

"I really hope Atlanta wins," Strahan said. "Matt Ryan is overdue. [He's] played extremely well [and] their defense is catching up to the offense. Julio Jones, the best receiver in football, who is the most non-assuming, nicest guy, doesn't care if he catches 20 balls a game, he just wants to win. I love that about him. I love that humbleness about him and the Atlanta Falcons, so I hope they go all the way."

The Falcons have an opportunity to earn a Super Bowl LI berth with a win over the No. 4 seeded Green Bay Packers on Sunday at the Georgia Dome.
