One to go

INDIANAPOLIS -- One quarter left in Super Bowl XLVI, and it doesn't take a rocket scientist (or brain surgeon, or quantum physicist, or even a guy who can tell an X from an O) to know this one's going to the wire.

Prediction: Whoever gets the ball last wins.

Further prediction: Whichever quarterback loses, it'll be the best performance by a losing quarterback in Super Bowl history. Until Brady's interception a moment ago, I don't think I've ever seen two QBs play at such a high level for so long with so much on the line.

Further, further prediction: The hero is going to be someone you least suspect. It just feels like that kind of game.
