Seldom do I touch on subjects regarding teams other than the Vikings, after all this site is about the Vikings, but when I do I tend to make it quick.

So, in making my Super Bowl prediction I will indeed be quick:

Madonna will be terrible.

Wait, that wasn’t what you all wanted to hear.  Here is my prediction regarding the actual football game:

Much like a few years back Tom Brady’s focus will be, at times, shaken by the Giants pass rush.  This time around, however, Brady will be more prepared to deal with the rush and New York’s secondary will be less prepared to deal with Brady’s unique weapons.  Gronkowski is fun to watch, but his injury has to make Hernandez the true threat on Sunday.

Eli Manning will have to play this one safe, as the Patriots defense only posts scary numbers in the turnover department.  If Brady starts to put up points and the Patriots get some separation, Manning and company may have to abandon, at least partially, their commitment to the run and Eli will have to quit playing safe.

In the end, I think that is what happens and this prediction of the score represents a game that won’t be nearly as close as it looks:  Patriots win by a score of 31-23.

So, for whatever tiny amount that prediction might be worth, I would like to hear yours.  Let me know in the comments section.
