Any given game, any team can be beat. People rag about the Packers defense, they beat the Patriots, can happen.

Of course you are right.

The people who disagree generally do for 1 of 2 reasons.

1. They are biased because they are a fan of their team which clouds objectivity.


2. They are young and inexperienced fans (ie in their 20s) or younger and have not experienced the ups and downs of the NFL like older fans..

Besides Denver, what other AFC team has a scary offense that can go in Foxboro and beat the Pats? If the Pats are not in the SB I would be stunned

To me, the Ravens have the best chance because of how well their defense matches up with the Pats offense. Brady has had huge success against the Steelers Defense, and they have annihilated most of the other teams in the field once already and could do so again.

The big difference is because of Revis/Browner the Patriots can actually cover now. Even if the Ravens got in, there is no chance of Joe shredding that secondary like he did in the last AFC championship game. Heck that offense was kept in check The first half then when Talib got injured Flacco took advantage.

The Pats have never lost a regular season game at home since 2008 when the Steelers won.
