06:03 PM ET 02.04 | A number of NFL analysts correctly predicted the Ravens to win Super Bowl XLVII, but few predicted the outcome as accurately as Brad Jackson of CSN Baltimore and Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com. As part of CSN Baltimore's pregame coverage, Jackson picked the Ravens to win by the correct score of 34-31. He also correctly predicted Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco would be named Super Bowl MVP following the game. While he was able to predict the final score and the Super Bowl MVP, Jackson's prediction that Ray Rice would finish with over 150 total yards came up short. Rice finished the game with 78 total yards.

Isn't this more of an "infinite number of monkeys" scenario?

Probably tied into the Peter Principle somehow.

Analyze this, both defenses were not Steller in the playoffs the Average points per Game the defense gave up including the Super Bowl were Niners 29.2 in three Games and the Ravens did a little better job with a 21.3 PPG average! That's not too impressive!!!
