Trying to bet the SB, I have some thoughts:
Atlanta is cranking on offense: NE does not care
Ryan was MVP: NE does not care
Julio Jones is a beast: NE does not care (Antonio Brown)

Not sure how I am betting, but Atlanta ? NE does not care.

Atlanta looks to be the unstoppable force but this offense is what the greatest show on turf was against the Patriots over 15 years ago.

Given time to prepare, Belichick is known for creating defensive game plans to stop great offenses. St. Louis Rams of Faulk and Warner to the 49ers of Montana and Rice to Air Coryell of the mid eighties.

I wouldn't take Mastermind Bill and the Patriots lightly. Will Bill try to frustrate Julio Jones by jamming him at the snap? You can't zone him or give him an ounce of space as the Packers did. I think Josh Norman was able to get Jones off his game by playing physical.

Bill needs to choose what weapon to stop first. I'd like the Falcons to win but I can't bet against Tom Brady in a close game on the highest stage. Seeing him receive the trophy from Goodell will be an interesting exchange to watch.

The Patriots (http://www.nfl.com/teams/newenglandpatriots/profile?team=NE) acquired five players since the end of last season via trade, more than any other NFL team. Guard Jonathan Cooper (http://www.nfl.com/player/jonathancooper/2539272/profile), part of the Chandler Jones (http://www.nfl.com/player/chandlerjones/2533538/profile) trade with Arizona, was released in October, but three of those players -- tight end Martellus Bennett (http://www.nfl.com/player/martellusbennett/1062/profile), cornerback Eric Rowe (http://www.nfl.com/player/ericrowe/2552255/profile) and underrated linebacker Kyle Van Noy (http://www.nfl.com/player/kylevannoy/2543699/profile) -- played key roles in Belichick's seventh AFC championship. This isn't a new trend: He acquired four players via trade during the team's 2014 title run, too.

Belichick's unique role as coach and head personnel evaluator sets him apart as a team builder. Not every deal works out, but Belichick has the flexibility to take low-cost, high-reward chances because he's confident he can coach up a player's best attributes. Over the last year, Belichick addressed clear weaknesses on his roster without giving up much.

Rowe was acquired for only a conditional fourth-round pick, giving the Patriots (http://www.nfl.com/teams/newenglandpatriots/profile?team=NE) a much-needed cornerback who could take snaps on the outside. Van Noy and Bennett cost even less, with New England simply moving down in Day 3 of the draft in order to snag those two from Detroit and Chicago, respectively.

The acquisition of Van Noy came five days before the Patriots (http://www.nfl.com/teams/newenglandpatriots/profile?team=NE) shocked the NFL world in October by dealing away star linebacker Jamie Collins (http://www.nfl.com/player/jamiecollins/2539311/profile) to the Cleveland Browns (http://www.nfl.com/teams/clevelandbrowns/profile?team=CLE). The Collins trade was difficult to understand (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000731581/article/winners-and-losers-from-the-jamie-collins-trade063293,d.cGw) at the time, but Belichick reportedly felt with conviction (http://www.espn.com/blog/boston/new-england-patriots/post/_/id/4797258/at-39-patriots-tom-brady-still-showing-signs-of-improvement) that dumping Collins was addition by subtraction.

For those that think injuries shouldn't matter, here's an interesting tidbit from a Vikings analyst:

"It’s no secret that the Vikings offensive line was hit hard by a barrage of injuries throughout the 2016 season, forcing Minnesota to field eight different starting combinations. . . . John Holler of Viking Update delved into not only Minnesota’s unit but also the offensive lines of current playoff teams.

Holler used some of the stats to emphasize the value of a healthy line that remains consistent throughout the season. Holler wrote:
Of the 1,053 plays the Vikings offense ran, these were the top five players in terms of when the ball was snapped and their percentage of those plays that they were a part of.

T.J. Clemmings (883, 83.9 percent), Alex Boone (873, 82.9 percent), Joe Berger (853, 81.0 percent), Brandon Fusco (835, 79.3 percent), Jeremiah Sirles (773, 73.4 percent). Holler pointed out that neither Clemmings nor Sirles were originally slated as starters, and Berger moved from center to guard in the wake of additional injuries down the stretch.

Holler noted a healthier offensive line for each of the 12 teams that made the playoffs,emphasizing the Falcons (11-5), Patriots (14-2) and Chiefs (12-4):

Atlanta – The five starting offensive linemen missed a total of 122 of a possible 5,195 snaps – playing a combined total of 97.7 percent of potential snaps.

New England – The five starting offensive linemen missed a total of 285 out of a possible 5,590 snaps – an impressive 94.9 percent."


I remember seeing a stat that the Falcons had started the same 5 O-Linemen, in the same positions, every game this season. Surely this isn't connected to their success. ;)
