Super Bowl 51 Preview: A look at the New England Patriots
The New England Patriots are favorites to win Super Bowl 51. This is their 7th appearance in the title game in 15 years, under revolutionary head coach Bill Belichick. Many believe that is the best era for the Patriots as they arguably have the best coach and the best QB in the league in Tom Brady.
There is no denying that Tom Brady might be the greatest player in his position. Super Bowl 51 will be his 7th Super Bowl appearance, a record for any player. Brady missed the first 4 games of the season through suspension, that is the only reason the MVP title is still being contested by others. With his incredible 14:1 touchdown to interception ratio, he has clearly earned all the praise he gets.
Defensively, the Patriots are even more solid. They rank first in the league with the least points allowed per game – a meager 15.6. Their toughest challenge came against the Steelers with QB Ben Roethlisberger at the helm, but he was handled easily as the Patriots sealed their place in the title game.
A statistical disadvantage?
The only recognizable disadvantage that the Patriots have is that none of their Super Bowl wins were easy. They were made to work hard for their titles and came close to losing more than twice. Super Bowl 51 will definitely not be easy as they have to deal with a thriving Falcon’s offense before they can hoist the trophy. Another worrying statistic, is that the underdogs have won 11 of the last 15 Super Bowls, meaning that the Falcons have history on their side and could go on to win. However, the Brady-Belichick magic is expected to overcome anything the Falcon’s have to offer and get a well deserved win for the Patriots.
