Saints & Colts Are Super Bowl-Bound

Super Bowl XLIV
Super Bowl XLIV

Two teams are shaking their heads while two more are celebrating as they prep to head to Miama for Super Bowl XLIV on February 7, 2010.


New Orleans Saints Vs. Minnesota Vikings

First to play were the Vikings and Saints for a chance at the championship. The Vikings had a rough game, fumbling the ball and losing the chance to get to the Super Bowl for the 5th time in their history. The New Orleans Saints, on the other hand, took the opportunity to get themselves in the big show for the first time ever.



It was definitely a good day to be a Saint. For some reason, Minnesota had a very hard time holding on to the ball dropping it six times (twice by Adrian Peterson; one on a miscue on an exchange with Favre), three of which were recovered by New Orleans. All in all the Vikings committed five turnovers (including two interceptions by the hand of Favre) while the Saints turned it over once.


But the weirdest part of the game was when Brett Favre tried a low-percentage pass with seven seconds left leading to an interception. The Vikes were in a long field-goal range position and seemed to commit to the run. Then, suddenly, a bad pass. The Saints win the coin toss, march down field, get a lucky break on a completion and convert an FG for the win 31-28. Game over.


Indianapolis Colts Vs. New York Jets

The Indianapolis Colts were the team to beat. And, indeed, they won, sending the New York Jets back to New Jersey following a 30-17 win. In which they spurred the Jets on the ground with 24 carries for 101 yards to 29 carries for 86.

For the next couple of weeks millions and millions of fans will be weighing in with their thoughts about the Saints-Colts Super Bowl Showdown. Who do you think will win?

    Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)
