It’s simple to play – just post your pick for the two Super Bowl teams, and the final score. Deadline for submissions will be 4:30 pm Eastern on Saturday, January 14th (just before kickoff of the first playoff game).

My Prediction:

Bills 28, Eagles 24

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.

AFC Teams:

Chiefs, Bills, Bengals, Jaguars, Chargers, Ravens, Dolphins

NFC Teams:

Eagles, 49ers, Vikings, Buccaneers, Cowboys, Giants, Seahawks

In my best Bill Swerski’s Super Fans voice
Seahawks: 438 Bills: negative 10

Eagles 30, Bills 24

Buccaneers 28, Bills 21

That’s probably a guarantee that neither team will make the Super Bowl, given my luck.

Chiefs 31, Eagles 27

Picking with my heart, which never works well.

49ers 30, Bills 24

Eagles 27, Chiefs 21

Eagles 28, Bills 21

Chiefs 38, Cowboys 34

Chiefs 31-Vikings 13

Giants 27, Chargers 19

I’m going outside the box to become the first to win in consecutive years.

Chiefs 24, Bills 20

Bengals 27, Niners 23

Bengals 28, Eagles 24

Bills 52-17 Cowboys

Chargers 34, Buccaneers 28

Intentionally flipping SB XXVII, or just coincidence?

Bills 33, Cowboys 28

Intentionally , tongue in cheek.

Bills 24, 49ers 17
