The predictions were slow to emerge early this week for Super Bowl XLVII, but you can be sure that every day that passes will find more and more prognosticators venturing forward with their best guesses.
Obviously, you should be taking these predictions with a grain of salt. Back in September, ESPN asked their panel of NFL experts—including John Clayton, Herm Edwards, Ron Jaworski, Mel Kiper, Chris Mortensen, Bill Polian and Adam Schefter—to predict who would appear in the season's Super Bowl.
From that group, only Mortensen picked San Francisco, and he thought they would lose to Houston. Polian thought Baltimore would defeat Atlanta in the Super Bowl, while Jaworski thought Baltimore would lose to Green Bay.
But for now, every Super Bowl prediction has a 50-50 chance of being correct. Here is an early sampling of what some experts are predicting will happen in Super Bowl XLVII.
