The NFL season is quickly coming to an end, and we are one weekend away from knowing who will be playing in the Super Bowl. Last week’s elimination of the Green Bay Packers was a surprise, so how do this weekend’s teams stack up?
Cousin Sal has your picks covered, and he actually did very well last week with a 3-1 record! He called in this morning to weigh in on the 4 teams left in the race for the “Big Game”: the Patriots, Ravens, Giants, and 49ers.
Baltimore Ravens vs. New England Patriots
The Patriots looked great in last week’s hammering of the Broncos, and a lot of people are banking on them playing in the Super Bowl. Sal thinks the Ravens are totally underrated going into this game. Sal pointed out that New England is win-less this season against teams with winning records, while Baltimore is 6-1. He is calling an upset in this one.
Prediction: Ravens 24, Patriots 21
NY Giants vs. San Francisco 49ers
This will be a tough one. Both teams played great last week, with the Giants dispatching the Packers and the 49ers dramatic win over the Saints. Sal has consistently picked against both teams this season, and decides this week is the week to bury the anti-Giants hatchet. Eli Manning is a guy that manages to come up with big plays, the Giants have a stingy defense, and Sal believes the rain in San Francisco will slow the 49ers progress.
Prediction: NY Giants 23, 49ers 17
