Now it’s time for the game that should be the best one on TV this week.

Game of the Week:

Three of the four teams in the past two Super Bowls will have tough challenges on the road to the Lombardi Trophy. Our first match is the defending champion Pittsburgh Steelers hosting the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings are undefeated, while the Steelers are fighting to be first in the NFC North. The Steelers are missing their run stuffer Aaron Smith for the rest of the season, which means Vikings RB Adrian Peterson should have a big game. However, the Steelers still have a good defense scheme. They’ll shut down Peterson. On the offensive side, Big Ben should expose the safeties and make some big plays in this game.

Prediction: Steelers 27-17

Our second game is the current NFC Champion Arizona Cardinals against the Super Bowl XLI Champion New York Giants. This is the second tough game out of 4 for the G-Men. Kurt Warner returns to the Meadowlands in cold, windy weather. The Giants safeties and linebackers are hurting, but the defensive line isn’t. Expect an aggressive defense steamed over last Sunday’s debacle against New Orleans.

Prediction: Giants 14-10

In other news, watch UFC 104: Machida v. Shogun tonight at 10 EST (check local listings). Machida should retain his light-heavyweight title against Shogun, but don’t be surprised if the title changes hands. Well, that’s all the time I have for today. If you disagree with anything I say, leave a comment below or email me at spidey23us@yahoo.com. Thanks for reading and good luck with your teams.

Yours Truly,

Sebastian Maldonado
