I agree. The Pats should be favored to win.
But don’t discount the power of the retiring legend. Remember the Jerome Bettis Farewell Tour?
As a Steeler fan, I remember that very well. And Jerome damn near blew it in the divisional round at Indy when he fumbled on the goal line and only Big Ben's shoe string tackle and then a missed field goal by one of the best kickers in the league gave the Steelers the win. I remember it very well. I never thought they would make it all the way, but they did.
As a life-long Steeler fan, I should not say this, but I wish all you Ravens fans the same kind of good fortune this week. But if I'm betting on the game, I'd have to go with the Pats.
Good luck. All I'm hoping for is another entertaining game like last week. That was a lot of fun to watch.
