A Not So Super Prediction
Unless you live under a rock, you must realize tomorrow is Super Bowl Sunday. In case you don't know, the two teams playing are the New England Patriots and the New York Giants( I've talked to people this week that had no idea). The Patriots, of course, are looking to complete a 19-0 season. The Giants are looking to pull off likely the greatest upset in Super Bowl history. So even if you're not a fan of either of these teams (which for the record, I'm not) it should still be one of the highest rated Super Bowls ever. So, since there probably aren't enough people out there making predictions I figured I'd put mine out there. A lot of people think it' s a good sign for the Giants that they played the Patriots so closely the last week of the regular season. I happen to think that will actually work against them. The worst thing you can do is give Patriots coach Bill Belichick time to prepare (he's had two weeks since the AFC Championship game). The second worst thing is to let him have a lot of recent game film on you. It's even worse if that film happens to be from a game against his team. So, I think the Giants are running into a buzz-saw. It will be close for 3 quarters but in the end the Patriots will make history. Let's call it 38-21.
