My NFL Weekend Game Picks

After 256 regular season games and 10 post season games it all comes down to this – Super Bowl XLIII. It’s an exciting match featuring the 5-time Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers against perhaps the most surprising team to make the Super Bowl in modern history – the Arizona Cardinals – who’ve got a handful of ex Pittsburgh Steelers (coaches and players) from their last Super Bowl team.

The Steelers are naturally favoured by a full touchdown with an over-under of 47 points. That would make a final score of Steelers 27 Cardinals 20. I on the other hand am bringing my .637 season-to-date average to the table – and rooting for and picking the Arizona Cardinals to win it all by a score of 33 to 16. Your MVP ?  Kurt Warner !

Check out the big game LIVE on NBC-TV. Continuous pregame coverage begins at 12 PM EST / 9 AM PST. Kickoff occurs at around 6:30 PM EST.

Be sure to catch the season finale of ‘My NFL Weekend Game Picks: The Results Show’ – next Wednesday night here on the big green blog.
