I'm not in the pick'em, but I will predict that:

- Matthew Slater will score a touchdown

- Something that has never happened to the Pats in the SB: Brady will get knocked out of the game

- Gostkowski will end up wishing that someone else had his job

Damn, Howard bringing the A-Game!! You're going to need to bring it again to keep me from repeating as champ, because my ultimate goal is to have the entire family--Mrs. Moj and the little Moj's--decked out in matching Zubaz for the first game of the post-Marvin era of Bengals football. Or as my 3-year old daughter calls them, "Daddy's silly pants."

Rams win by 6 (and the cries from New Orleans only intensify)

Last time's success was the result of a deep and abiding faith in all things Patriots. There was also a bit of understanding that KC's run defense was not too good. It turned out well enough, but I want a do-over because of the rather interesting non call in the NFC game. Here goes this week's;

Start with the essentials: The final margin will be the result of a pick 6 with the clock in the last 60 seconds as Rams were driving toward the winning touchdown. New England by 11 LOCK

1st field goal Zuerlein LA

1st TD White NE

Passing yards Goff LA

Rushing yards Michel NE +5

Receiving yards Gronkowski NE

Sack T Flowers NE

Interception D. McCourty NE

1st turnover Anderson LA

MVP Brady NE

Ads (Note Pepsi is the parent company of Frito-Lay. Thus, by choosing Pepsi, I am also picking Frito-Lay. Deny this and tahoemoj will represent me in the resultant lawsuit.) Pepsi/Frito-Lay
