NFL '13 SEASON THREAD

Recommended Posts

Basically, whichever team plays better and scores more points is probably going to win.

Super Bowl Stat of the Day: the team with the most points at the end of the game has won the past 47 Super Bowls.

Denver 31

Seattle 14

I'm so relieved I can watch this game without a rooting stake. Either team winning is fine with me.

I don't allow myself to do this very often, so this will be a nice change of pace.

Already I'm off to a good start on my predictions. 2:02.21 on the National Anthem, which means I just barely got the over/under right.

By the way, my prediction from the other thread:

The two teams met in the preseason, with Seattle winning 40-10. (Seattle was winning 27-7 when Manning left the game midway in the second.)

Granted, it was "just a preseason game", but preseason games have some meaning when the starters are in the game. The Falcons looked sloppy in the preseason and that carried over into the regular season. And that 40-10 score in a preseason game had enough meaning to Elway for him to chew out his team.

I think there was some truth in that game. Seattle wins 31-17.

Forgot Seattle's never won a championship. That'd be nice for them.

Plus, Denver took my team's Super Bowl away back in January 1999. I firmly believe Elway paid that hooker to talk with Eugene Robinson. That, and Bowlen has kept Atlanta from hosting another Super Bowl. And Elway and Shannon Sharpe both look like that horse on the side of the Broncos helmets....

Well, that sure wasn't how I expected the game to begin...

A safety 12 seconds into the Super Bowl.

That's why Vegas has all those shiny lights and big buildings.....

Safety 12 seconds in; fastest score in Super Bowl history.

And now a challenge. If it fails, Seattle will have a 27-yard FG attempt with Hauschka.

I thought he got the first. Glad the refs got it wrong. Bad start but could've been worse.

So the last two scores in the Super Bowl were safeties? Wow.

And now, two of the last three Super Bowls have had a safety as their first score.
