As I write this (games played through 1/30/08):My prediction? This will be a boring game. Good thing I'm having some friends over to play board games while the game is on.
That last bit is the most interesting to me. A slowed-down low-scoring affair seems to favor New England instead of New York. But if New York can get some big plays and score, they stand a chance. Our final prediction will be updated once all games are in, but right now the scores we've received would put the final score at: New England 31, New York 17.
- 63% of the time New England wins
- New York wins 89% of games where they score at least 25
- New England wins 83% of games where they hold New York below 25
- New England wins 93% of games where they hold New York below 20

Super Bowl Prediction
The guys from Pizza Box Football have done it again - they web-printed stat sheets for New England & New York and encouraged all of us who are fans of the their game (yep, that's me!) to play faux Super Bowls & report the scores to them.

The preliminary results of all these games played from the Pizza Box guys:
