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.

    I like your pick and I hope you are right! Unfortunately, my pick is more grounded in reality rather than hope. We know that hope is not a strategy. 🙂 The Steelers will win this with their dominating defense.

    Right – and picking the Falcons over the Cardinals, the Panthers over the Cardinals, and the Eagles over the Cardinals were also all grounded in reality.

    As far as you stating that hope is not a strategy – tell that to God.
