With no article last week, here's an update on the standings in our class' playoff prediction competition.
Jace: 1-5 (-109 point differential)
Keagan: 3-3 (-67 point differential)
Max: 4-2 (-82 point differential)
Ulstad: 4-2 (-73 point differential)
Isaac: 4-2 (-57 point differential)
Isaac is in the spot to beat right now, but we'll see how things shake out after this weekend's big game. We've got three new members to the class who will be making their first predictions this week. Here's what we've come up with.
-Keagan: I believe the rams are going to take this one against the Patriots this year. Although the Rams only have one ring and the Patriots have five, i believe the Rams have what it takes to make it number two. 34-32 Rams.
-Jace: I think the rams will take the Super Bowl this year. The Rams may not have a lot of experience in the Super Bowl but they will still pull through with the win 34-27.
-Isaac: The Patriots are the best play-off team as of late and they won’t stop now. Betting against the Patriots has always proved me wrong, so I will give them the benefit of the doubt. Jared Goff and the Rams are very inexperienced; Tom Brady and the Patriots are the best playoff/super bowl team in recent history. Tom Brady’s favorite targets are very good under pressure and will come in clutch throughout the game. The Patriots will win their sixth super bowl by the score of 34-31.
-Brier: I believe that the patriots are going to win by 10 mostly because of the experience the Pats have. Pats win 24-14.
-Korbyn: I think the Rams will win. I’m really getting a good feeling that the Patriots will be blown out, 38-12.
-Max: I believe the Rams are gonna win with lots of receiving and rushing yards, the score is gonna be 27 to 34 with rams dub.
-Ulstad: Picking the Rams for no other reason than needing to win this competition, and Isaac picking the Patriots. Also, there are three former Beavs on the roster. My dream scenario is Jared Goff needing to come out of the game, and Sean Mannion coming into the game and throwing the game winning TD to Brandin Cooks for the win (and maybe a Johnny Hekker fake punt toss on the in the second half as well). Lets go Rams.
-Tucker: The Patriots are who I am going to go with, because Tom Brady’s Super Bowl record doesn't lie. 40 to 34 Patriots.
