    Think you've got what it takes to predict what's going to happen at Super Bowl XLV?

    Then this game is for you.

    It's really simple. There are 20 questions. Post your answer/prediction for each of them. Unless otherwise marked, each prediction is worth one point. Most points wins three days of colors, VIPship, and title, as well as bragging rights.

    There will only be one winner. First tie-breaker will be final score prediction. Second tie-breaker will be a fight to the death.

    Here are your categories:

    1. Which team scores first?
    2. Which team scores the first Touchdown?
    3. Which team scores the first Field Goal?
    4. Which player scores first?
    5. Which player scores the first Touchdown?
    6. Which team leads the game at the end of the first quarter, or will it be tied?
    7. What will be the score at the end of the first quarter?*
    8. Which team leads the game at the end of the first half, or will it be tied?
    9. What will be the score at the end of the first half?*
    10. Which team scores last?
    11. Which teams scores the last touchdown?
    12. When Will Madonna perform "Like a Virgin" during the halftime show: First/Last/Middle/Won't
    13. Will a non-QB complete a pass during the game?
    14. Which player will throw for the most touchdown passes?
    15. Which player will have the most rushing yards?
    16. Which player will have the most receptions?
    17. Which team will turn the ball over more?
    18. Who will be named the MVP?
    19. Who will win the game?
    20. What will be the final score of Super Bowl XLVI?*



    *This question is scored in two possible ways. If exactly correct, two points. If no one has it exactly correct, closest to correct will score one point. To score exact points, must have correct team leading (from previous question). To score "closest" to points, need not have correct team leading.

    To play, just post your predictions. You can change them until Noon Board Time on game day.

    Proving that the experts know what they are talking about, Raven got 12, tied with RX_Sith.

    So, on tiebreakers (closer to real score), the winner is RX_Sith. Congrats.

    Edit: I've just realised there may be some controversy here as I had 'Giants Defense' as 1st scorer but the safety was a penalty. If we take Cruz's TD as the first score Raven wins. Might need a referee's conference. :p

    my two cents on that is that it was the giants defense that caused the score, and i'm pretty sure if it were fantasy they'd get credit for the safety.
