To start off, I was not too happy when the Ravens beat the Broncos, it would have been much cooler if Angel’s team would have went to the Superbowl, because lets face it, when wife is happy, husband is happy. :)
Within this post I drill down into what I predict will happen within Super Bowl XLVII as well as the final score. According to the Madden NFL 2013 Sim game which replicates Super Bowl XLVII between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, the Ravens take the trophy with a final score of 27-24. Here is what I think is going to happen, along with final score; lets see how close I am come Sunday
Starting off, I think Ravens will win the coin toss which puts 49ers in position to receive the ball starting the second half. The ravens will probably come out hot throwing screens to Ray Rice, seams to Dennis Pitta and probably work in Anquan Boldin and Torry Smith a few times while marching down the field on their first possession. They will end up scoring, either a touchdown or a field goal, doesn’t matter.
49ers will get the ball with 8 minutes left in the first quarter, someone will fumble, Kaepernick will throw and interception or the will not convert a 3rd down and have to punt. This is where it starts to get good. Starting the second quarter, Baltimore will begin to lose momentum, Flacco will start making a few mistakes, get sacked a few times and eventually end up tossing an interception before the end of the second quarter – which will have a decent run back and possibly could even turn into a pic six.
Without going into too much detail, the game will go into half-time with a score around 10-17, Ravens ahead, but no worries. Why, you ask? Because #7 is going to rally in the second half.
Halftime show – Generally when celebs have a baby, they lay low for a year or so..well no Beyonce. On top of singing last month at the Presidential Inauguration, she is also going to kick off the halftime show as the main performing artist. She is kicking ass this year.
Second half starts, as mentioned above, 49ers will start with the ball second half, they will immediately march down the field within 9 plays and score a touchdown, its now tied at 17’s. This is where the fun starts. Ravens begin to choke, Flacco throws a pick six, probably tipped off of Bolden or Pitta’s hands, now 49ers have the lead 24-17. Ravens will get the kickoff, have decent field position and do nothing with it, they will punt. Vernon Davis has been quiet all game, Kaepernick will find him open and get close to the endzone – he wont score, this is because he was on my fantasy football team and sucked ass until I traded him. But, the 49ers will score, probably Frank Gore or Kaepernick sneaking it in the endzone for 7 yards – 31-17.
Fourth quarter comes along, by now more than half of us watching are feeling a bit….sloshed is the word I may be looking for? Ravens will have the ball and run down the field only to be disappointed with a field goal, 31-20. This will be the score of Super Bowl XLVII. Both teams will have possession of the ball again however wont be able to do with it. Kaepernick will squeeze out a few first downs and the game will end on an easy note with Kaepernick taking a knee..probably two or three times.
So there is my analysis, I wonder how close it will be. I’m kindof more looking forward to the commercials to see which are the front runners this year.
Let me know your predictions, Super Bowl plans and remember, DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE PEOPLE!!!
