Peter King Predicts Falcons Will Beat Chargers in Super Bowl

After correctly predicting last year’s Super Bowl matchup of Green Bay vs. Pittsburgh, Peter King has taken his annual pre-season road trip and put all the information together to form this one major prediction—the San Diego Chargers will fall to the Atlanta Falcons in this year’s Super Bowl.

King thinks the Falcons will beat the Chargers 24-20, though could you imagine two of the highest scoring teams in the NFL scoring that low? I couldn’t.

King’s prediction is even more interesting because I simulated a season of Madden 12 last night and the Falcons beat the Chargers 29-28 in the Super Bowl.

We will see how his pre-season prognostications play out. Hopefully his view of the Browns turns out to be correct, as he predicts Cleveland will show much improvement and go 8-8 this season, finishing just behind the Ravens and Steelers at 10 wins apiece.
