While the Jacksonville Jaguars were generally considered longshots to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers, we can only imagine that everyone on the team thought they’d win. But Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell took it a step further, actually predicting the score.

“I’ll take it 2-0 if it comes that way; I’ll take it 45-42 if it comes that way,” Campbell said, after the team’s Wild Card Weekend win over the Buffalo Bills (per Tom Pelissero, NFL Network). “As long as we win, I’m happy.”

Even more impressive is that the final score he named was not a common one. Darren Rovell of ESPN noted that before Sunday, only two games in NFL history had ended with that final.

After the game, Campbell commented about his prediction.

We have a question for Mr. Campbell. Do you have a few sets of numbers that you’d care to share for the benefit of those who play the Lottery?
