In Depth Analysis On The 4 Reasons Why New England Patriots Will Win NFL Super Bowl 51
Not only will Brady make an unprecedented seventh Super Bowl appearance, but he’ll enter Super Bowl 51 looking as good as he ever has despite his advancing age. This season, Brady completed a blistering 67.4 percent of his passes for 3,554 yards with 28 TD passes and just two interceptions. More importantly, the future Hall of Famer did all of this without any Pro Bowl receivers catching his passes. Well, at least after all-world tight end Rob Gronkowski went down halfway through the regular season.
By now, football fans young and old know that Bill Belichick is without peer. The best head coach of this era, and some say, any era, has won four Super Bowl titles and will have the edge over Atlanta’s Dan Quinn in his chase for an unprecedented fifth Super Bowl title. Maybe it’s me, but Belichick’s 201-71 record with New England looks daunting to say the least.
Hands Like Glue
After watching the Green Bay Packers’ and Pittsburgh Steelers’ collective groups of wide receivers repeatedly drop passes in their respective conference championship matchups, it should be noted that New England’s group of mostly unassuming wide receivers have hands like crazy glue.
Again, maybe it’s me, but I just don’t see Julian Edelman, Martellus Bennett and Danny Amendola dropping many passes that they have a decent chance of catching and there’s something to be said about that.
New England’s defense this season reminds me of Miami’s famed ‘No-Name’ defense of the 1970s. Despite not having any ‘big-name’ stars on defense, New England shut down opposing offenses better than any team in the league in ranking first in points allowed (15.6 ppg).
Some Unsung Hero
Maybe it’ll be veteran running back LeGarrette Blount or maybe it will be unheralded wide receiver Dion Lewis, but you had better believe that some player that you’re least expecting will come up with a big game for the Patriots. The worst part about playing the Pats is that you just never know who that ‘unsung hero’ of a player will be.
