2017 Super Bowl Predictions

I've had this pick made since they stomped out the Falcons two weeks ago. GO PACK OH!

Relax, we all know the Packers lost to the Falcons and it was everybody's fault but Rodgers that they couldn't run the table. That 25th ranked Falcons defense was just too impenetrable for anybody to score on. Anyways, onto the big game (for real this time).

Super Bowl-New England Patriots vs. Hotlanta Falcons

Line: Patriots -3

If you have been keeping track on your calculator, my record heading into the Super Bowl is 2-8 with both of those correct picks being the Patriots. It seems obvious that I should pick New England and end the playoff season with a 3-8 record but there is a deeper story behind those two picks. If Tom Brady wins his 5th Super Bowl today, he will join Kobe Bryant and myself as 5 time champions in our respective sports as Kobe has 5 NBA titles and I have 5 Rucker Park titles.

We have long been friends and I can tell you that the constant heckling of Tom about only having 4 rings is what's driving him to get to the promised land one last time. Kobe and I spoke with Tom on the phone a couple of nights ago and he sounded more focused than any of the previous 6 trips to the Super Bowl. Sticking it to Commissioner Goodell would just be icing on the cake for him and there is not a chance that I am going to bet against him. Neither should you. Patriots 31-24.

Bonus content: If the Patriots don't get robbed on some Tyree/Manningham/Kearse type play and if Brady doesn't win the MVP, I'm going with Dion Lewis.
