Not the "official Patriots version" there is an unedited version that is absolutely spectacular behind the scenes footage...Brady is an F bomb machine, literally every other word out of his mouth which is hilarious....

Well worth the view....I would link it but not sure that would be kosher considering the NSFW nature

shows you that the Pats get bored during the regular season. They only play to win the division and get the #1 seed and if it wasn't for the Miami miracle (1 play) they would have been #1 seed.


When you go to the AFC championship game 8 years in a row and 4 times to the SB in the last 5 years and you are a veteran team you get bored with the regular season and could care less about individual stats or regular season stats. They are about picking your spots in the regular season, staying healthy to put your team in the best position in the playoffs to make a run at it.


They all beat playoff teams this season:


Texans
Bears @ Chicago
Colts
Chiefs twice (and 1 @ Arrowhead)
Chargers

Notably, KC was 2 - 4 against playoff teams in the regular season. The Rams were 4 - 3.

KC lost 4 games by and average of 3.5 points and 3 of those 4 games were on the road......Rams lost 3 games by an average of 9 points and those 4 wins were at home.

Chiefs play in a tougher division this year than the Rams. AFC West 34-30 record while the NFC West went 30-34 record. AFC West scored 1,612 points while the NFC West scored 1,522 points.

Rams beat the Chiefs in LA by just 3 points. If the game was at Arrowhead, Chiefs beat the Rams by double digits especially in the cold weather.

Margin of victory doesn't matter, just the win or the loss. With the playoffs counted, the Chiefs were 3 - 5 against playoff teams while the Rams are now 6 - 3 and still playing. I don't know which team is better, Chiefs or Rams; let's see how the Rams do in the Super Bowl. KC lost to the Pats twice this past year so there's not much question which team was better this year.

yes, Chiefs lost to the Pats at home (Pats are undefeated at home) by 3 points and lost to the same Pats in OT in the playoffs.


We shall see on Sunday if the Rams can beat the Pats.......by the way, Rams should be 5-4 and not in the SB. They got a gift from the refs.

I've come around to not feeling pitty for the Saints after seeing the multiple face masks and other non-calls that the Saints got away with leading up to their final drive. I believe had one been called the Rams would have been in FG range at the least. And their kicker is just about automatic.

Throw in the bad clock management on the Saints final drive, the fact that the Saints got the ball first but threw and interception. Rams deserve to be there.

I feel the same way, yes it was a terrible non call but the game didn't end on that play.

Saints took the lead, couldn't hold it, had the ball first in OT, turned it over....

The better team won the game....

My SB prediction - Pats 31, Rams 23. Pats get 4 TD and 1 FG. Rams get 2 TD and 3 FG. Pat's defense was ranked #7 in points allowed while #21 in yards allows. Rams were #20 and #19 respectively. The Pats' bend but don't break defense is the difference.
