    Celebrity predictions

    By Times staff writer

    © St. Petersburg Times, published January 28, 2001

    JEFF BLAKE, NEW ORLEANS QUARTERBACK: "I think New York wins 13-10. It'll be at least close enough to kick field goals."

    STUART SCOTT, ESPN ANCHOR: "Baltimore's defense is great, but I don't think the Ravens offense can keep coming up with fluke plays to pull off the win. I'm not sure Baltimore's offense is up to the task. Giants 17-13."

    TIM MARCUM, TAMPA BAY STORM COACH: "Defense defense defense defense. Baltimore is just solid. I think New York took advantage of Minnesota down the field and I don't think they'll be able to do that against the Ravens, and I don't think they'll be able to run the football. Of course, my handicapping system has been so bad. ... It's certainly not an empirical science. But Baltimore wins 17-10."

    LA'ROI GLOVER, SAINTS DEFENSIVE TACKLE: "I'm going with the NFC. They have more balance. I saw what their offense did against the Vikings. I don't know if they can do it against the Ravens, but I think they have enough weapons to keep them honest, so I like the Giants."

    BRIAN URLACHER, BEARS LINEBACKER: "I think Baltimore's going to win. I picked against them every week, and they always found a way to win. ... If they don't turn the ball over and make stupid mistakes, they'll win the game, I think."

    DAVID FISCHER, MAYOR OF ST. PETERSBURG, PICKING THE RAVENS: "I'm glad to see (Trent) Dilfer come back."

    MATT HASSELBECK, PACKERS QUARTERBACK: "New York wins 24-17, and Greg Comella of the Giants is the MVP. That's the way to beat that defense, with the fullback. And I have to pick the NFC."
