Super Bowl Sunday may be months away, but that doesn’t mean football fans don’t have their fair share of early predictions.  But, is one team the runaway favorite?

13% of football fans think Brett Favre will lead the Minnesota Vikings to victory while 10% say Peyton Manning and the Colts will be the last team standing in February.  Younger brother, Eli Manning, and the Giants are the pick of 9% of football fans.  An additional 9% of armchair quarterbacks expect Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers to repeat.  8% think Tom Brady and the New England Patriots will reign supreme.

But, do Americans suffer from football fever?  There’s little question that about one-fifth do.  21% of the population report they follow professional football a great deal.  17% profess to watching professional football a good amount while 28% watch it a little.  34% report they don’t watch the sport at all.
