Patriots in the Playoffs

Ok so I haven’t posted in a while and here is something that I definitely want to give my take on. My whole family has always said that I’m the most spoiled sports fan they’ve ever met, which I won’t deny. However, as far as the patriots are concerned, I’m usually somewhat satisfied with a long playoff run that doesn’t ultimately end in a championship. You can’t win it all every year but as long as they are in the mix at the end of the year I won’t be totally disappointed. This year though, is much different. I’ve been a pats fan for a while now and I can’t say I’ve ever seen them have an easier road to the Super Bowl then this one. So let’s break it down, the once intimidating Oakland Raiders have been eliminated. The Huston Texans should pose absolutely no threat to New England considering the thumping the pats put on them back in September without Tom Brady and before JJ Watt’s injury. The Steelers are very hot right now but so are the Patriots and if the pats are in Foxborough then they already have a leg up. The Dolphins always play the Patriots tough but they would have to play out of their climate in the cold and are also a very inexperienced playoff team. The Chiefs are also a very respectable team but with the recent playoff performance they gave in Gillette Stadium, again, I think the Patriots have the advantage. But here is the x-factor for the patriots in the playoffs this year; they don’t have to play any away games. And if you’ve watched the pats at all in recent years, you know that them losing a playoff game in Foxborough is an anomaly, it rarely ever happens. Although there are many tough teams coming out of the NFC, I still think the Patriots should feel good about any team they might face come Super Bowl Sunday. Now, this isn’t me promising you the pats win it all, but they have a better chance this year then just about any other Patriots team that I’ve seen.

    The G.B. Packers looked very good today vs. NY Giants. If it comes to it…a GB vs. NE Super Bowl…I think the Pack will give the Pats a though go of it.
