The playoff teams are set, so it’s time for our annual contest – can you predict the Super Bowl a month before the game and join our list of champions?:
Year 1: Trillionaire
Year 2: Uncommon Sense
Year 3: Airman Doors, USAF
Year 4: Grits and Hard Toast
Year 5: Hal Briston (woohoo!)
Year 6: dalej42
Year 7: Justin_Bailey
Year 8: Hamlet
Year 9: Hal Briston (woohoo again!)
Year 10: enalzi
Year 11: Jahiegel
It’s simple to play – just post your pick for the two Super Bowl teams, and the final score. Deadline for submissions will be 4:00pm Eastern on Saturday, January 3rd (just before kickoff of the first playoff game).
As for my prediction…I’m still another year away from keeping my “win every four years” pattern going. So since I’m going to lose anyway, I might as well take out the two teams I like the least. My prediction:
Packers 27, Patriots 17
PLEASE NOTE: It’s not an absolute requirement, but it’s very helpful to me if you format your pick the same way I did above – “Winning team name and score, losing team name and score”, on its own line. No locations, just the name. Feel free to add any other commentary on a separate line. Thanks!
As always, just in case you don’t follow football but still wanna play along, just pick an AFC team, an NFC team, and a couple of numbers that sound vaguely football-scorish.
New England Patriots, Denver Broncos, Pittsburgh Steelers, Indianapolis Colts, Cincinnati Bengals, Baltimore Ravens
Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys, Carolina Panthers, Arizona Cardinals, Detroit Lions
