Patriots Super Bowl 48

Three rings will have to be enough for this year.

NEPD Editor: James Christensen

The Patriots won’t be winning Super Bowl 47. Colin Kaepernick has the last chance to stop Ray Lewis from retiring a champion and I assume many New England fans will may swing towards the NFC side of the action while they aren’t dousing their disappointment in nacho cheese and assorted beverages.

Even though they aren’t in New Orleans again this week, according to most bookmakers, the Patriots are already the odds-on favorite to win next year’s Super Bowl 48.

What do you think of the Patriots’ chances in 2013?

After Monday night’s 42-14 shellacking of the Houston Texans in front of a national audience, it feels like years ago that the New England Patriots stumbled out of the gates to a 3-3 record.

Since then, the Patriots have torn through their opponents one by one, and by not only beating but embarrassing the team that still holds the AFC’s best record on Monday Night Football, the Patriots proved they are once again the team to beat in the conference.

If you’ve watched the National coverage of the Super Bowl this week it seems futile to even play the game. All we’ve heard this week is “the Patriots have no shot, the Giants pass rush is too good, Eli Manning is now the best QB in football, the Giants are the hot team.”

Fortunately for Patriot fans the game will be played on Sunday night and the Patriots actually do have a chance to win the game. Here are 10 reasons why the Patriots will actually win Super Bowl 46 on Sunday night.

Two long weeks of waiting and the Super Bowl is finally almost upon us.

There’s a lot to be decided in Saturday’s game.

Will Tom Brady go down as the greatest quarterback in NFL history? Will Bill Belichick go down as the greatest coach in NFL history? Will Eli Manning pass his brother in Super Bowl rings?

Will Tom Coughlin be the Tom Flores of this generation? Will Danny Woodhead return a kick passed the 22 yard line? Will Ochocinco be sitting next to Peyton Manning in the owners’ box? Will Dane Fletcher ever not drop back into coverage when he’s lined up at defensive tackle?

No Need for 300, Just Give Tom Brady Five

Patriots Giants Super Bowl

THIS... IS... BOSTON!

NEPD Editor: James Christensen

In the battle of Thermopylae, made famous by the movie “300″, the Persian King Xerxes trotted out a seemingly never-ending procession of exotic warriors.

Perry Fewell, defensive coordinator for the Giants, has a similar array of weapons aimed at disrupting the Patriots passing attack.

The Patriots offensive line, just like the Spartan heroes on the silver screen, will need to hold out for as long as they can. Fortunately for New England, their blockers will need to be vigilant for only around three seconds, as opposed to three days.
