7th Annual SDMB Early Super Bowl Pick Contest

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

So how about this year? A two-time champ, or our seventh new winner? Let’s find out…

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 9th (just before kickoff of the first playoff game).

Since my annual pick of the Giants isn’t looking too likely this year, I’m going to go with the game we were robbed of in 2006:
Colts over the Saints, 37-34

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:
New York Jets, Cincinnati Bengals, Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots, San Diego Chargers, Indianapolis Colts

NFC Teams:
Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers, Arizona Cardinals, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints

Cowboys 31
Chargers 21

[del]St Louis Rams 27
Kansas City Chiefs 21[/del]

Colts 34
Vikings 17

Skol Vikings!

Vikes 24
Colts 20

Chargers- 31


Saints 35, Colts 31.

Chargers 27
Saints 22

Haven’t followed the AFC much this year so a bit of a WAG. But pretty sure it won’t be the Colts or the Vikings in any event.

Jets 21
Saints 20 (as the Saints rest their starters). :slight_smile:

Chargers 27, Cardinals 21.

Chargers 23
Dallas 35
