Super Bowl Predictions: SI's Peter King Picks The Steelers 33-27

Peter King is one of the biggest insiders in the game. When he speaks, people listen, even if they don't particularly agree with what he has to say. So let's see who he is picking for the big game on Sunday.

There is no question in my mind that the game will be close, and there is no question in my mind that either team could win and it wouldn't remotely be a surprise. Give me the Steelers, 33-27, just because I think Roethlisberger, the tree trunk, is better suited to take the hits the quarterbacks will take in this game and keep on ticking.

That seems to be the consensus. Not so much the team that is going to win, but that the game will be close. But I feel like that is said before most Super Bowls and they end up being a blow out more often than not. So, it seems like Peter King is falling in line with the rest of the blogosphere on this one. Except he also added this kind of weird part.

Troy Polamalu and Ryan Clark are so good together in the deep secondary and around the line of scrimmage that I wouldn't be surprised after some plays one says to the other, "You complete me."

I'm going to have to disagree with Mr. King on that one. It would surprise me greatly if Troy Polamalu quoted Jerry McGuire in the middle of the Super Bowl. More surprising then any possible outcome of the game itself.
