Well, here we are, ladies and gentlemen, the final game of the 2014-2015 NFL season, as the AFC Champion New England Patriots battle the NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX. After today, there won't be a meaningful snap of football played until one of these two teams hosts the 2015 season opener at either Gillette Stadium or CenturyLink Field.

Kickoff is still about half an hour away, and the Daily Norseman community has made their voices heard about who they think will win this evening. That and, hey, if you're not particularly interested in the football game, there are still going to be a ton of pretty great commercials to keep you entertained.

As I said in our roundtable, I've got the Seahawks winning this game in a close one, but these two teams are so evenly matched that neither team would be an upset. The Seahawks opened as an early favorite with the sharps in Vegas, but the pendulum has swung towards the Patriots over the course of the past couple of weeks.

Enjoy the final game of the season, everybody, and talk about it with your fellow Minnesota Vikings fans right here!
