It's set. Pats won by 19. Falcons by 23. Being both the best offenses in the league, with underrated defenses, I think they deserved to be in the super bowl the most this year. So since my Cowboys missed out, I'm looking forward to this as a really good consolation game, that should be really good.
So both teams score a lot. Both teams have solid defenses. Both teams can run and throw at will. And either Ryan or Brady will be the league MVP.. Who wins this one? Curious on people's takes on this matchup.
I think the Patriots defense and Belichick's scheming game plan might prove too much for Atlanta. The Falcons offense is better. But only slightly. And the Pats defense is better, but only slightly. So it will come down to qb play, turnovers, and coaching. Unfortunately for Atlanta, New England bests them in all of these categories, usually.
Saying that, I really want the Falcons to win. And I do think it will be very close. Julio Jones can put them over the top. And they are lucky they don't have to see Gronk in this one.
