Super Bowl XLIX: CSC Staff Predictions


I don’t know if you’ve heard the news, but apparently there’s a football game taking place this afternoon.

Rumor has it that it’s a pretty big deal too.

Who knew? You’d think with something this important they’d talk about it a little bit to keep people in the loop.

Given this late-breaking news, the CSC writing staff has decided to do something ground-breaking and make predictions about the outcome of the game.


You won’t find content like this anywhere else on the internet.

So, without any further ado, let’s dive right into things with predictions on the winner, the final score, the MVP, and – as a bonus – one outlandish prediction for today’s game from staff writers Steven Kunkel, Jesse Motiff, Justin Kunkel, Ryan Gehrke, and our resident blogger-in-chief, Jeremiah Graves.

Outlandish Prediction

Steven: Chick-fil-A’s “Eat More Chikin” cow will score a fat man touchdown.

Jesse: Justin Verlander publicly breaks up with Kate Upton after the airing of her “God of War” Super Bowl commercial.

Graves: Taylor Swift makes a full heel turn by attacking Katy Perry backstage with a folding chair. She then proceeds to perform the half-time show herself, while Perry is rushed to the hospital for medical attention. The world gets a drastically-improved half-time show as a result and Katy Perry learns a very valuable life lesson about crossing Tay-Tay. Don’t do it. Ever.

Justin: Late in the 4th Quarter Beast Mode finds his inner Bo Jackson and does this to win the game…

Ryan: Vince Wilfork scores a rushing touchdown as Walter Peyton cries in the afterlife.


Now it’s your turn.

    Jeremiah, you were very close with the score! Too bad you didn’t have faith in TommyB. Personally I think Edelman should have won it, but it’s hard to beat out a QB that scores 4 touchdowns, leads a 4th Q winning drive, and breaks Montana’s SB touchdown record, even if he threw 2 interceptions…


    • I figured that they’d go with someone who had been largely out of the mix to keep Seattle guessing. Vereen stepped up big as a change of pace to Blount, but clearly there was no topping Brady or Edelman for the hardware.
