Answering ESPN’s Call: My Super Bowl Predictions

5 Feb

“Think you know EXACTLY what’s going to go down tonight? Well, prove it here -> #SuperPickEm

When I saw this tweet, my curiosity got the better of me. The setup seemed so similar to the joy of bracketology during March Madness that I could not resist filling out the extraordinarily thorough questionnaire about what will happen in the Super Bowl.

So without further ado, here are my picks, as entered into ESPN.

What will be the first scoring play of the game? Touchdown
Which QB will throw for more passing yards in the FIRST HALF? Eli Manning (or tie)

Will any quarter have 21 points (or more) scored? No
Will Eli Manning and Tom Brady both throw an INTERCEPTION? No – one or neither
Will Rob Gronkowski (TE) catch a TD pass? No
Which QB will throw for more passing yards in the game? Eli Manning
Will the game be TIED at any point in the 4th quarter? No
