Nate Silver, the former 'Baseball Prospectus' author who's become famous with his deadly accurate fivethirtyeight.com political blog on the New York Times' Web site, has -- at least for the moment -- turned his attention to football.
He's predicting a Patriots-Seahawks Super Bowl. But in actuality, he says the real Super Bowl will be played a week from Sunday in Denver.
"I'd say that Denver and New England are the best two teams in the NFL," he said on ESPN's 'First Talk'. "You have to have one team from each conference, so if you have a Denver-New England AFC Championship Game, it might be one of those cases where it really is the de-facto Super Bowl."
