Super Bowl Predictions Analysis

There are four teams left in the NFL Playoffs, fighting for a chance to play in Super Bowl XLIX, in Arizona. Only two of those teams will get to advance to the Super Bowl, but we are going to project what will happen in the four possible scenarios.

Scenario 1

Indianapolis Colts vs. Seattle Seahawks

For this scenario to happen, the Indianapolis Colts would have to defeat the New England Patriots, while the Seattle Seahawks defeat the Green Bay Packers. These two teams last faced each other in the 2013 NFL season, and the Colts were one of the three teams that defeated the Seahawks, who eventually won the Super Bowl. The Seahawks dominated the game in terms of yards and possession, but the Colts hung in the whole time, and were able to rally and get the win in the fourth quarter.

This time around, the Colts can't afford to fall behind, because the Seattle defense will likely go after Andrew Luck, like they did to Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl last season. The Seahawks will try to take advantage of the Colts rush defense, which gave up over 200 yards when they played last season, and try to keep Andrew Luck on the sideline as much as possible. 

Prediction: Seattle will win the game.

Scenario 2

Green Bay Packers vs. Indianapolis Colts

This will be a dream matchup for people who love offensive football. The two teams met in 2012, and the Colts were able to win the game on a last second touchdown, giving Andrew Luck one of the biggest wins in his rookie year. Like the last matchup between the two teams, this will likely be a shootout, between two of the league's leading passers. The winner of this game will be the team that can get a stop in the fourth quarter.

Prediction: Green Bay wins a close game.

Scenario 3

Seattle Seahawks vs. New England Patriots.

This will be a chess match between two of the best coaches and strategists in the NFL. The Seahawks will try to run the ball, which is what they usually do, and will likely have some success, because New England's run defense has been poor at times this season. Russell Wilson might have his toughest game as a professional, because Bill Belichick has been known to frustrate great quarterbacks with his defensive schemes in the past. 

Tom Brady will also have a lot of difficulty with Seattle's defense, because they go after the quarterback a lot, and try to frustrate them, forcing them into mistakes they normally wouldn't make.

Prediction: The Patriots will win.

Scenario 4

Green Bay Packers vs. New England Patriots.

This will be a rematch of the game played in Green Bay in November, and the second meeting between Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. Like the first game, both teams will be able to move the ball, and the difference will be which team will score touchdowns, and which team will settle for field goals. The Patriots went away from their running game quickly the last time out, but will stick to it this time around, because Green Bay's run defense is their biggest weakness.

Prediction: The Packers win a close game.

I think a Green Bay vs. Indianapolis Super Bowl will be the most interesting of the scenarios, but the chances of that happening are slim to none, and fans should expect to see Seattle and New England in the Super Bowl.
