Question 16 - Who will have a longer completion? Hurts (A) or Mahomes (B).

Hurts had 2 separate 45 yard passes - one to DeVonta Smith & one to A.J. Brown for a touchdown.

Mahomes did not have any longer than a 24 yarder to Travis Kelce. As such, A is the correct answer.

3 of you were correct here - RedOctober3829, YTF, & johnmd20.

Question 17 - Which team will have the shortest touchdown? Eagles (A) or Chiefs (B).

In hindsight, this was a pretty dumb question. Both teams had 1-yard touchdowns & the actual length of those 1-yard touchdowns doesn't apparently count, so it's a push.

Fwiw every single one of your picked the Eagles for this question, so it wouldn't have mattered anyway. I will give you all a correct answer because it seems like the kind thing to do.

Question 18 - Which team will kick more field goals? Eagles (A) or Chiefs (B).

This question wasn't dumb...just poorly worded. The intent was to ask who will make more field goals, & that intent is what I am going to go with, even though it could be argued that they both kicked 2, & the Eagles just happened to make more. Kick is something less than "make" but something more than "attempt", so I'm just going to go with my intent. Y'all can feel free to boycott the results if you don't like them, but the official correct answer here is A because the Eagles made 2 field goals & the Chiefs only made 1.

In hindsight a better question would have been "which kicker will score more points" or something similar to that. Live & learn.

7 of you correctly selected the Eagles - RedOctober529, Koufax, DennyDoyle'sBoil, steeplechase3k, tims4wins, Time to Mo Vaughn & Jim Ed Rice in HOF.

Question 19 - Who will have more sacks? Haasan Reddick (A) or Chris Jones (B).

This was another foolish question - I got a little carried up in the hype & the fact they both had similar odds of getting a sack in the game. There were 2 sacks in this game total & those were by Khalen Saunders & Leo Chenal of the Chiefs. No one is correct &/or everyone is correct. Points for everyone!

There was a 6/4 split. Here are the 4 who selected Reddick: DennyDoyle'sBoil, steeplechase3k, johnmd20 & Time to Mo Vaughn.

Question 20 - Who will have more receiving yards? Wide receivers (A) or Running Backs & Tight Ends (B).

This was one I was a bit unsure whether it would actually be 50/50, but it seemed kinda fun so I went for it.

& judging by the 5/5 split in answers, it was a good question.

For the Chiefs, wide receivers only had 80 of 182 receiving yards.

But for the Eagles, wide receivers had 225 of 304 receiving yards.

This led to a win for wide receivers of 305 to 181, and a correct answer of A. Running backs only combined for 44 yards.

The 5 who selected the correct answer were: Koufax, tims4wins, johnmd20, Time to Mo Vaughn & Jim Ed Rice in HOF.

Question 21 - How many total punts will there be in the game? Over 7 (A) or Under 7 (B).

Each team punted twice, for a total of 4 punts, making B the correct answer.

4 of you correctly selected B - RedOctober3829, YTF, djbayko & johnmd20.

Question 22 - How many total passing yards will Hurts & Mahomes combine for? Over 530.5 (A) or Under 530.5 (B).

I get this prop by just adding the over/under for each QB together. There probably is a math flaw in doing it that way which would probably one side or the other, but reality favored the under. Hurts hit his over easily with 304 yards, but Mahomes only threw for 182, for a combined total of 486. The correct answer is B.

8 of you were correct, everyone but johnmd20 & Jim Ed Rice in HOF.

Question 23 - How color Gatorade will be dumped on the winning coach? Orange/Blue/Red/Pink (A) or Other/None (B).

I tried to very roughly math this to put equal odds on each side, but who knows how successful I was?

Anyway, Andy Reid was doused with purple Gatorade, so B is the correct answer.

Question 24 - Will there be a 2-point conversion attempted in the game? Yes (A) or No (B).

The Eagles both attempted, & converted, a 2-point conversion to time the game up at 35 (& to get Jalen Hurts the elusive "Octopus" for those who were in on that prop bet).

Question 26 - Who will win the game? Eagles (A) or Chiefs (B).

This was one that was intentionally not quite 50/50 in terms of the betting market because doing like Eagles -1.5 seemed kinda silly. The answers were split 50/50 anyway.

These 5 chose the Chiefs (B): RedOctober3829, YTF, Koufax, DennyDoyle'sBoil & tims4wins.

Question 27 - How much will the winning team win by? Over 3.5 (A) or Under 3.5 (B).

This one I'm not quite sure how the betting market would have fallen, but it seemed like kind of a fun prop. The Chiefs won by 3, making B the correct answer.

Only 2 of you gave that correct answer - Koufax & tims4wins.

A standard over/under line. The teams actually combined for 73 points, so A hit easily.

Question 29 - Who will win the MVP? Hurts/Any Other Chief (A) or Mahomes/Any Other Eagle (B).

I tried to fit an MVP question in while still making it ~quasi even & not necessarily the exact same answer as who wins the game.

The odds probably would have slightly favored B, but close enough? Patrick Mahomes won his 2nd Super Bowl MVP, making B the correct answer.

6 of you got the answer correct - RedOctober3829, YTF, djbayko, Koufax, DennyDoyle'sBoil & tims4wins.

No problem. I used to run one of these on a different website with 1 question per Super Bowl # (so this year would have been 57 questions) & 50+ entrants, & would posts 100s & 100s of pictures during the reveal. Life is a lot busier now, but glad you guys had fun!
