Ebony Bird round table: Super Bowl LIV edition
Site Expert, Richard Bradshaw makes his pick:
Super Bowl prediction
This year’s Super Bowl has two terrific teams in the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. Both teams have great offenses with a plethora of weapons to go with stout defenses. Each team is coached well and overall this looks to be a very evenly matched Super Bowl. This game will either be low-scoring or a shootout; I really don’t see it going any other way. I’m taking the 49ers to win a close game, 30-27 with Jimmy Garoppolo winning MVP thanks to his three touchdown passes.

I wish the Baltimore Ravens were in the Super Bowl, but I still have plenty of memories to reminisce. Super Bowl XLVII was one of the best football games I’ve ever watched and I’ll always look back at Jacoby Jones‘ 109-yard kickoff return touchdown to open the second half of the game fondly. It’s perhaps my favorite Super Bowl memory.
Favorite non-Ravens Super Bowl:
There’s been a lot of good Super Bowls in my lifetime, but I’ll never forget Super Bowl LI that saw the New England Patriots make a comeback on the Atlanta Falcons down 28-3 just before the fourth quarter. The game really put into perspective how great Tom Brady truly is and that he can do absolutely anything at any given time. The Patriots defense performed admirably, as well, but Brady took the team on his back and won that game for his fifth ring.
Best Super Bowl food:
There are so many directions you can go when it comes to Super Bowl foods, but a good dip goes a long way. Buffalo chicken dip, queso, salsa, ranch… you name it and I’m game. And who says no to some buffalo wings?
