Not to rub it in, but Peter King of Sports Illustrated picked the Green Bay Packers to beat the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 47 when he did his pre-season prognosticating last summer.

Well, those two teams were knocked out of the NFL playoffs last weekend and didn’t even make their conference championship games.

Super Bowl bids will be on the line when the San Francisco 49ers play the Falcons in Atlanta and the Baltimore Ravens visit the New England Patriots in the NFC and AFC title games Sunday.

King is now predicting a Super Bowl between the Pats and the 49ers.
