NFL Super Bowl 2020 Predictions

Discussion in 'Sports' started by jrbiz, Nov 19, 2019.

    Well, we have just passed the halfway mark of the season. The New England Patriots and the San Francisco 49ers are 9 and 1. The Baltimore Ravens, Green Bay Packers, and New Orleans Saints are 8 and 2. Big question in the AFC is can the Patriots get past the Ravens, given that it was the Ravens that gave them their one loss and in a convincing way, IMO. That said, Belichick has demonstrated the knack of observing and adapting, so if they meet in the play-offs, I suspect the Patriots will have a different approach. So, I am predicting that it will be the Pats in the Super Bowl. On the NFC side, I kind if like the 49ers. Would be an interesting match up: Brady against his former heir apparent, Garropolo.

    It's a bit early for me to really think much on this. Although I was surprised at the 49ers until I talked about them with my son (they've always been his team for some reason). He says they've been selectively building the team over the last few years.

    Well, the Super Bowl is Sunday and it is Kansas City versus San Francisco. I think that KC, with its explosive offense under Mahomes, is the likely winner. Who do you predict?

    I think you're right but I'll likely cheer on the 9ers.

    For the first time in a while, I will not have a horse in the race. Will mostly be watching to see the commercials, halftime show, etc.

    That's mostly for my son though.

    Last year after the Super Bowl my mother placed a bet for KC to win this year. But to offset that she now has a bet on SF.

    Anymore I watch as much for the commercials as I do the game. Although the commercials last year left me feeling let down.

    Kinda makes it uncomfortable though - too many beers with no drain breaks...

    KC is favored by 1.5 points right now. It is a changing number right now, of course, and probably will not settle down before the weekend.

    They are the favorites. Mahomes is impressive. The key for him now and in ensuing seasons is to not get injured. His style of play invites some serious hitting and potential for injury, imo.

    Instead of playing a blame game they should just give full credit to the KC team's win. They played well. Yes, there were somewhat questionable calls, but virtually EVERY game has them.

    SF played as well as or better than KC in the first half. However, they were overmatched in the second half and, especially in the 4th quarter. Best team won, as far as I am concerned. Jimmy G., in fact, looked like the inexperienced quarterback that he is while Mahomes showed some real grit by playing through his earlier interceptions and other mistakes.

    I rarely follow sports, but have been the past few years because of the history that the Patriots were making. No real withdrawal for me... :)
