It has to be pretty demoralizing for the rest of the league and the fans who hate the Patriots. They simply keep winning. Coming into 2018 this team looked the weakest it has looked (on paper anyways) in a very long time. There were some bad loses – at Detroit, at Tennessee and of course the awful loss at Miami. They dominated perhaps the hottest team in the NFL when they beat the Chargers in the divisional. Went on the road and handled the Chiefs, when many fans were chirping about their inability to win a road playoff game. For the record, that was the third road AFC title game win for the Patriots during this long run.

This will never be done ever again in the NFL.

As I would have expected, much of the pregame talk centered around how Brady and the Pats offense would fare against guys like Suh and Talib and the rest of the Rams defense. Here are a few stats--

Total offense-Patriots 407, Rams 260.
Yards rushing-Patriots 154, Rams 62.

Credit the defense of the Patriots for pretty much shutting down the Rams offense. I also will give Wade Phillips credit for holding off the Pats as long as the Rams defense did.

One of the most memorable quotes regarding football comes from the great Paul "Bear" Bryant---"Offense sells tickets, defense wins championships."

Default Pure & Simple

The Patriot's are the GOAT

Brady is the GOAT

Belichick is the GOAT

Anything else is just noise by haters.

Pure & Simple!

I wonder what the Patriots will add this off-season.

I am not going to dissect this game other than to say there were two great defensive teams on the field last night.

My thanks go out to this Patriot team for giving us fans something 31 other teams have failed to do.............and that is to provide us with one of the greatest football dynasty's that many of us will never get to see duplicated in our lifetimes.

To the younger Patriots fans, enjoy, and savor these moments as this is a Cinderella story not soon repeated. Respect this team as the time will come where we will have to rebuild and endure the growing pains so many other teams do.

Don't mean to preach but this has been a truly amazing period in Patriots history

A tight end if Gronk retires and wide receivers

Bill coached a masterpiece on defense. Completely took away Cooks and Woods outside. Totally dominated in the trenches and jumped on and all over Goff. He also got a decent amount of mileage out of the run game against the deepest DT rotation in the league.

People are so mad that this wasn’t the Chiefs/Rams scoring bonanza a few months ago. What people saw last night was a masterful defensive performance by the Patriots against a team that just had no answers.

Now, wrt calling it a boring game, take that garbage back to your lamestream blamestream fakestream mainstream media outlets, where they tell you what you're supposed to think and say.
