Seahawks Miraculous Comeback Ends String of 37 Consecutive Wrong Super Bowl Predictions
I have been making pre-season Super Bowl predictions for as long as I have been watching football, which is more than 40 years.
The last time I correctly predicted the Super Bowl participants were the Oakland Raiders and the Minnesota Vikings playing in the big game in 1977. Since then, I have been wrong, every single year, until this one.
Back on September 4, 2014 I posted my prediction for this year would be Seattle vs New England saying, "they [Seahawks] edge the Green Bay Packers for the NFC Championship', and "Sorry, Bronco fans. It’s just too difficult to get back."
I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only person who picked the Patriots and the Seahawks, but it's possible I am the only one who has been wrong for 37 straight years. At this rate, my next correct Super Bowl prediction won't come until I'm 88-year-old, so I'm thinking that I should relish this rare moment of correctness.
Only eight times in Super Bowl history has a team won the big game in back to back years - Green Bay, Miami, Pittsburgh (twice) San Francisco, Dallas, Denver, and New England. If my prediction holds true, this will be the 9th time it happens, with the Seahawks beating New England 31-21.
Considering what it took for Seattle to advance to the Super Bowl, it's possible that it's just in the cards for them to win it again this year.Regardless of the outcome of the game, I will have to begin a new streak of being wrong.
