Yes, that’s right. The Super Bowl this year in my completely biased, way too early prediction will be between the sophomore quarterbacks Joe Flacco of the Ravens and Matt Ryan of the Falcons. The Ravens will win the Super Bowl in a tight game where both quarterbacks are tested by strong defenses, but the play-makers on the Ravens will take over late and win the NFL Championship for the Baltimore Ravens.
