I just wanted to note that every Super Bowl the Patriots have played in, all have been decided by less than a TD. It's likely going to be a close game.

 

The 85 Bears say hello. 

 

EDIT: Super Bowl 31 was a two score game as well.

Those stats are only relevant when it's mostly the same team.  The first two SBs are completely irrelevant.  Of the next 6, only Brady and Belicek are constant from the first 3 or 4 - the last two SB teams are 99% different from the first 4 (though that 1% is the biggest 1% in the history of mathematics.)

At some point during the pre-game show today:

"During an animated segment, Rams DC Wade Phillips will take viewers on a journey of Houston football history."

 

I can't even be mad. That's just amazingly unnecessary and overdone. Football. 'Murica.

I'm not big on stats like that (they seem like just coincidences to me) but maybe it implies that the MVP gets that honor because his team isn't that great but he's good enough to get them to more wins than they should, which implies that they're the inferior team going into the SB hence why they lose.

 

If a team is loaded, the QB may not shine as much (even if he's great) and therefore not be the MVP, but the team wins the SB.

 

That being said, I can't believe Tom Brady wasn't MVP during any of his 4 SB winning seasons.

Matt Ryan winning the Offensive Player of the year and the MVP last night was a bad omen. Look what it did to Cam last season! The same was said for Peyton and the Broncos when they played Seattle in 2014. I can't stand the Patriots but they are going to win.

Yeah, but Johnny Cash. And America. Definitely gonna watch that one again on YouTube later.

 

It's the damned Fourth of July 2: Electric Boogaloo. I hope you're strapped in.

Historical logos would have really been the icing on the cake of this HBCU ceremony. It's distracting to see a guy that graduated college in 1967 represented by the toothpaste Dolphins logo. Or the very new-looking Southern University logo for the older guys.

HBCU ceremony was very nice. I agree with Cosmic, historically accurate logos should have been used.

Patriots came out to Crazy Train, Falcons came out to the Trick Daddy version. This might be a blowout.

If Brady wins tonight, even haters would probably have to admit he's the greatest quarterback ever. The dude has set the bar high and I doubt any QB comes close to him for quite some time.

 

On a stylistic note, these graphics Fox is using seems influenced by CBS' 'detached box style.'

This is already a boring Super Bowl.

This is gonna be a dogfight. That's why I wasn't buying into the "young defense" talk of the Falcons.
