For today's game, I chose to play as the Packers. I don't really care who wins the game, although I think it would be neat for another QB (Roethlisberger) to have three Super Bowl rings. I just want to see if people will bring his name up any time they are talking about how amazing Tom Brady is. However, two years ago I played as the Steelers for my prediction game, so I wanted to try something new this time.
On the first offensive play, Don Majkowski completed a 70-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Sharpe. Packers lead 7-0.
Brister's first pass of the next drive was also picked off by Jerry Holmes. After a couple of runs, Majkowski hit Sharpe again for a 25-yard score to end the first quarter. 14-0.
Defensive lineman Matt Brock began to dominate on the next possession, blowing up plays in the Steeler backfield on almost every snap. He ended the game with six tackles for losses and five sacks, more than he had in any of his first four seasons according to his card shown here. Mark Lee intercepted Brister, and Majkowski led a Sterling-free drive that ended with a Michael Haddix one-yard touchdown. 28-0.
After a bad onside kick, the Steelers finally managed a Gary Anderson field goal at the half. 28-3.
The Packers opened the second half with a 60-yard completion from Majkowski to tight end Ed West. Haddix, in "excellent" condition, followed with a 30-yard touchdown on a screen pass. 35-3.
On the next Steelers possession, Brock kept the pressure on Brsiter, causing him to throw his fourth interception (to Mark Murphy). Haddix then scored on a 70-yard screen pass to end the quarter. 42-3.
The Steelers likely experienced deja vu on the couple of series, as Brock caused another safety and Query immediately caught another TD pass, this time for 60 yards. 60-3.
Following a failed onside kick attempt, Merril Hoge broke away for a 50-yard run to score the only Steelers touchdown of the game. 60-10.
The Steelers tried an onside kick, giving Green Bay a short field and allowing running back Darrell Thompson to score on a 50-yard run of his own. 67-10.
Brock ended the game by sacking Brister and causing a fumble, which was recovered by Green Bay.
Majkowski -- 90% | 388 yards | 7 touchdowns | 0 interceptions
Brister -- 12% | 34 yards | 0 touchdowns | 4 interceptions
The Packers will win the Super Bowl and I will move to 3-0 in Tecmo Super Bowl predictions.
