Around The Kilt: Who will win the Super Bowl?

February 3, 2017

Another year, another Super Bowl that includes Tom Brady’s Patriots. This year will mark the seventh time Tom Brady has led his team to the Super Bowl, a feat no other quarterback has accomplished in NFL history. A Patriots win would by many arguably cement Tom Brady’s legacy as the greatest QB to ever take the field as he would have five Super Bowl rings, another feat accomplished by no other quarterback. A Patriots team, that offensive play calling leaves even the greatest defenses confused and complex coverages that slow even the most explosive of offenses has once again found a way to do more with less in large part thanks to the genius of Bill Belichick. Because of the savvy play calling by Coach Belichick and the great leadership of Tom Brady, I predict that the New England Patriots will once again hoist the Vince Lombardi trophy and be crowned Super Bowl LI champions.

Even though the Falcons have played fantastic football lately and have the highest scoring offense of any NFL team this season, I think that the Patriots are going to come out on top in the Super Bowl. Nobody has been able to stop the Falcons high-scoring offense this postseason but Patriots coach, Bill Belichick is the best coach in football and will figure out a way to slow down the game and make it low scoring. This will be Matt Ryan’s first Super Bowl while the opposing QB Tom Brady will be playing in his seventh. Experience will play a major role in this game. I think the Falcons will hang around and keep it close in the first half, but Tom Brady will pick the Falcons defense apart in the second half and the Patriots will pull away and win their fifth Super Bowl in the last 15 seasons.

This Sunday is the biggest sporting event of the year, Super Bowl LI. The matchup this year features the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. This game figures to be a strong offensive performance from both teams as the Falcons have led the league in points per game in both the regular season and the playoffs and the Patriots have ranked in the top three in both. I think that Tom Brady, who has been to six Super Bowls and won four of them, gives the Patriots an advantage. The Falcons, meanwhile, haven’t been to the Super Bowl since 1999 and their quarterback Matt Ryan has never played in a Super Bowl. I think this will be a close game, but the Patriots will win based on their playoff experience. Final Score: Patriots 35, Falcons 31.
