RDreamer wins because he had correctly picked both Super Bowl teams and no one picked the Falcons. So, congrats RDreamer on a great looking bracket.

We also already have a winner among the community. And it proves there are some pretty knowledgable NFL fans across the pond as well. Our winner is uk_raider.

Here were the top three submissions:

Just as in our staff brackets, not one person submitted a bracket with the Falcons winning the Super Bowl. The tiebreaker for uk_raider is that he correctly picked a wildcard in the Packers to make the NFC Championship game. Having a bit too much faith in the Raiders to win a playoff game was his only mistake.

For his outstanding bracket, uk_raiders earns a free S&BP T-shirt. Congrats!

And the rest of you who picked the Patriots can feel free to root for the Falcons Sunday if you like without worrying about your bracket prediction.
