    Pats, 27-20.

    Went through the Chargers defense (Ingram, Bosa) and survived KC's offense. They can beat anyone. In a one-game series where winner-takes-all, don't bet against Belichick and Brady. Especially not at this level.

    Goff is not scrubby enough to beat Brady.

    Patriots will win again. End of the road for the Rams.

    I don't expect Wade Phillips to be able to contain the Pats offense... but the Patriots have NEVER blown out a team in a Super Bowl.

    I expect a shootout.

    Did they have HDTV when the rams first played Brady in the super bowl ?

    It was 2002.

    HD went mainstream around 2003-2004.... same time as wifi.

    This Patriots run of dominance is insane.

    Go Pats. I can’t imagine being a Saints fan right now..that’ll take a while to get over. Should be a great game. Don’t see TB12 losing b2b SB’s. Pats 30-28

    This will be a great Super Bowl. Hate saying this but I got Pats winning and Brady dissecting that defense.

    Bold prediction: the game will come down to a handful of close calls, all of which will miraculously go New England's way.

    This will be a tainted Super Bowl. It will be talked about how the two teams got there one by a terrible missed and the other by a dumb NFL OT rule that should have been changed years ago.

    It's also going to be California VS Boston in the NBA. Kd out bounds and pass interference, 2 of the most purposed missed calls ever.

    What boring story do we have to hear about for two weeks?


    How young the rams coach is?

    Patriots won the OT coin toss at the Super Bowl here as well...Atlanta never saw the ball. They may end up with 2 championships off of OT coin tosses in the past 3 years.

    Edit: Brady is 3-0 in OT playoff games, opponents have never seen the ball. The other game was the Tuck Rule game back when just a FG was needed to win the game.

    Honestly, there are plenty of stories.

    Youth (Goff, McVay) vs Experience (Brady, Belichick)

    Defense (Rams front 7 + Peters / Talib) vs Brady/Edelman/Gronk

    2001: Rams/Pats. 2019: Rams/Pats. Might Brady and Belichick hang it up if they lose, this year?

    But like another poster said, most of the discussions will be marred by the missed PI and the fact that Mahomes never got to touch the ball again.

    IMO, football should never be a sudden death game because possession in football is so important. It should not be decided by a coin toss.
