Four of the last five super bowls have been decided by a single possession. Some of the most heart-wrenching and soul-shattering super bowls have happened within the past five or ten years. With this years matchup of the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams, many are predicting another nail-biter. The Patriots have been given the advantage in this matchup by quite a few experts, before the AFC championship game the pats were actually down a point in most books. However, by the end of the night they had jumped up to a two or three point favorite . Yet, the Rams have been sporting a brick wall of a D-line in recent weeks at the very least. But clashing with the nigh-unstoppable force that seems to be the Patriots offense (even more so since the playoffs started) is going to be no mean feet. No matter who says what, it’s gonna be a close game for sure.
A big part of the Patriots offensive success this year has been due to the undying loyalty and crazy superstitions of their incredible and wholly-unbiased fans. However, we can’t shorthand the leadership forces that really drive the team though; Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are always a frightening duo to go up against. It doesn’t matter how bad they’ve been playing, how much cheating they have been accused of, or how many points you’re up by with two minutes left in the fourth. However, Jared Goff of the Rams has shed the kid gloves for sure; pulling out a win, by the skin of his teeth, in their last game against the saints. It seems pretty safe to say that both team will be coming out strong this year, and we can only wait and see what happens in the end.
