Lol, drone gate.  Why does it always seem that things like this happen in games involving the Pats.

 

Not surprising. Earlier this week, Kyle Shanahan lost his backpack with the game plan in it. A reporter had picked it up, thinking it belonged to him.  The bag was missing for about 15 min. These things seem to happen only when the Pats are involved.

over-under is 58........////30-27 is under..I'd go under ....low confidence there...

 

Atlanta gets 3 points most everywhere....so Id take the Falcons...top scoring team in the NFL

3 covers overtime most likely and Atlanta will keep throwing no matter how far they are behind or ahead

 

Tough to go against the league's top scoring team in what will feel like a home game for them

Umm more Pats fans in Houston than Falcon fans. If anything Pats will feel like the home team.

Go Falcons!

 

With that said, the SMART money will be on NE.  You just don't get to a 7th Superbowl and then not know what you're doing.  They will be ready.  Atlanta will have to play EXTREMELY well to beat them.  I hope they do, but I don't see it.  NE just has too much experience in this department, and giving Belichick 2 weeks to prepare for you is like handing the firing squad the bullets for your own execution.

 

Pats 34, Falcons 24

It is a little weird, isn't it?  That and the drone thing.  Just odd that you don't hear about these kinds of things with any other team.

Cheating sure gets you places in life. That's what I have taken from the patriots era in football. 

 

Get a grip. They are what the Colts should aspire to be. Leave your personal feelings of inferiority out of this. The Patriots with Belichick and Brady have gone to 7(!) Super Bowls, and you don't accomplish that through cheating.

just got back from the alternate dimension! man, those Indianapolis Colts with Peyton Manning just keep winning consecutive championships since 2007! lol *crying*

 

in all seriousness though, how great it is to be a patriot fan. almost as great as the privilege of watching the Colts play on sundays. i'm proud of the team and wouldn't switch allegiances for the world.

Correct. 7 SB appearances is dominance and that is not attributed to cheating. They are what they are and that is the most successful NFL franchise in the 21st century

I'm rooting for ATL, but I just don't see them winning. Like, at all.

 

That offense is amazing...that defense, not quite as good haha. They are literally dead last in red zone defense and they got some sucky corners. Brady will tear them apart.

 

Hope they prove me wrong, (cause I'm ready to order some crow), but this one will be over before the 4th quarter.

 

35-17 Pats. God I hate New England.

Hope the Falcons win. I like their owner, head coach, and players.

Singing the National Anthem is hard enough with music,  singing acapella is very hard.  Good job, Luke

But he's wrong.

That's not what I meant when I said that Atlanta has an advantage earlier..

Indoors favors Atlanta..outdoors would favor NE

    • Didn't you just describe 70% of all Twitter users? 
    • I wonder which account is Kevin Bowen on here? He seems often to quote stuff I read here first.  Anyone else notice that? I wouldn't be surprised if he's either lurking or he's one of the regulars here.  
    • Mayfield and Rogers equal?    "You can't be serious!" -John McEnroe 
    • Yeah, if you ALSO take away his 3 best linemen you might approximate what Luck was dealing with his first 3 years.  Then we'd see an apples to apples type comparison to Luck's early years and his.  I think Mahomes deserves attention, but he had a stacked deck on Offense.  He also has the best TE in the league.  So arguably his top 3 weapons were in the top 5 in their positions, and Luck hasn't had any of that EVER, not even last year.  Sure, Luck finally had a line, but TY is on nobodies Top 5 list outside of this message board, and Ebron isn't deserving of a Top 5 listing wiht a blip on his resume.  Mack is a nice RB but far from Top 5 at this point.  Even though Luck STILL won't have 3 Top 5's this year, I think the scales are a bit more balanced this time around so I look forward to seeing which one excels.  If Mahomes puts up similar numbers without Hunt or Hill, (even though Kelce and their replacement back are still as good or better as our guys) then he'll unquestionably be the top QB in the league, in my view, over everyone on the list in pure talent/ability.   Rogers may have BEEN the most talented ever, but he's had some terrible seasons of late.  He'll be re-establishing his greatness as well and he has some new weapons this year to help him do that.  Same with Brady.   We'll also get a good look at Ben R. without Brown to see if he keeps up his performance.  We're lucky that Luck will get to prove it against many of those rated higher than him.  And likely, should we play well in the Playoffs, he'll have to prove it against Brady.  I would love to see Luck win against Brady in their only playoff meeting likely remaining should it happen. 
    • Gonna be so hard for us to win one in their building with Kawhi not at 100%. Luckily Siakam finally looked like his attacking self in game 3. Hopefully he can find that again in game 5. Lowry needs to keep up his play as does Gasol. I don’t know what to expect from the bench but as long as they don’t get ripped to shreds, that’s all I ask. Oh and it would be very welcome if Danny Green could return from his vacation at brick island  (although he’s been solid defensively I think)
