It's impressive putting together a lasting dynasty in any sport. I can't ever deny the Pats success. Domination is only fun to watch for so long though. Somehow it always ends up a little stale.

It's been such a blah NFL year period. GB-Dallas was a classic, stellar game but the rest felt underwhelming. I hope the Pats/Falcons make a game of it.

Wins over Houston and Pittsburgh at home don't impress me. NFC has had the stronger conference all year, IMO.

Atlanta by double-digits if they avoid turnovers.

hoping the falcons win - by double-digits would be great - but I would take a one point win - just as long as they get the job done - last time I had any warm feelings towards the patriots, jim plunkett was their QB.

Not if you were born and raised in NE. ;) I rooted for the Pats for 30 years before they won their first Bowl. This will never, ever get stale for me. :D

Roger Goodell: Wouldn't be awkward handing trophy to Tom Brady

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday that he wouldn't be uncomfortable handing the Lombardi Trophy to quarterback Tom Brady if the New England Patriots win Super Bowl LI on Feb. 5.

From your fingers to God's ears, or whatever. I'm ABP.

If they play the way they did against Green Bay then a double digit win is indeed a possibility. ;)

I'm originally from Atlanta so I'm happy about my hometown team this season.

GO FALCONS!

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.
