    Branch won that MVP

    I remember it because it was very odd for a WR to win SB MVP

    why is Belichick challenging this? He doesn't want the game to end?


    35-7 with 4 minutes left


    Romo takes the opportunity to spend another couple of minutes talking about the greatness of Belichick, who "no one wanted"

    They should offer teams playing the Pats two options — start the game down 14-0 but get fair officiating, or take your chances starting 0-0 with typical Pats officiating.

    No interceptions on Saturday.

    Also, all TDs were scored on offense.

    I doubt it. Somehow Coughlin teams find a way to screw the Pats. Jags D is solid. They need inspiration only. I am hopeful. Let me say this, I don’t see Steelers winning in Foxboro. But I can see Jags winning. So I will root for Jags today.

    Why Saints? Of the 3 teams left in the NFC, Vikings would have the best chance to beat the Patriots.

    The nightmare scenario is Saints beat Vikings, then Eagles beat Saints.

    I don’t think so. I’m rooting for the Jags because their D is exactly what you need to beat the Pats — good DB’s and a pass rush that’ll be all up on Brady so much he will think he’s on a second honeymoon.

    The Jags are built for exactly what you need to beat the Pats in a 17-14 game New England in the cold.

    True. Therefore I will be rooting for Vikings against the Saints today. If Vikings play the Superbowl at home against the Pats they are winning it. Pats won’t get out of Minny.

    Antonio Brown active, as expected.

    Not close to 100%, though.

    Looking ahead to next week, Patriots would be -7.5 against Jacksonville or -5 against Pittsburgh. New Orleans/Minnesota would be -3 at Philadelphia. Philadelphia rooting for cold, windy weather against the dome teams.

    Brady v. Keenum will most definitely result in Brady winning. I think the Saints have the best chance.

    Except it would be Brady vs Vikings D, and Keenum vs Pats D at home. Vikings can beat the Patriots.

    Totally disagree.
    I think all 3 have a solid chance to beat and most likely would be favored in my mind (not necessarily Vegas) over the Pats.
    I would give the Vikings the least chance to beat them, but the SB would be a home game for them so that does help their cause.

    Bottom line is the Pats are not winning the SB this year, the NFC team will - unless Goodell, the NFL and officials decide otherwise.
