NFL Picks – Super Bowl
New England started me off on the right foot. San Diego was banged up, but played them tough. Tom Brady wasn’t very effective, but was able to make the plays he needed to. Laurence Maroney was a beast. New England’s Defense made the stops when they needed to, keeping San Diego out of the endzone. I took Green Bay, and I thought I was going to be right, but New York would not be denied. Eli Manning played mistake-free football. Brett Favre could not make the same claim. His second pick cost him a return trip to the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl Pick
New England vs. New York Giants.
The G-Men are hot. They pushed New England in the Meadowlands. This time, though, they are on a neutral field. The weather should favor New England’s high-powered offense, provided Tom Brady’s now-famous right ankle doesn’t prove troublesome. Bill Belichick has loads of time to pick apart New York’s weaknesses and limit their strengths. I think the Giants will stay within the spread, but New England will win its fourth Super Bowl 35-24.
