I have no why I'm going against Brady and backing the Falcons, but I think they're gonna win.

31-21

I just can't see the Patriots losing this. I respect the Falcons Offense has been really good, but you just know BB will have devised a cunning game plan to shut down the running game and take away Julio Jones. I see Ryan throwing a pair of costly picks and the game getting away from Atlanta in the 2nd half.
Pick: Pats 34-17 but would love to see the Falcons win.

This matchup reminds me slightly of last years SB, a QB and offense firing on all cylinders, against a well oiled machine.

I just hope we don't have the same outcome where the Falcons choke like Cam and his Panthers did.

I cant call it, every part of me wants to say that the Falcons win in a close contest, but the Pats have been there done that got multiple t-shirts (or rings)

if you put a gun to my head and said score preds I'd go ATL 34 - 28 NE

I'm just hoping for a great game, all the playoff games have been a bit disappointing so far, this could be the one !!!

I can see the Pats having some success slowing down the Atlanta offence. I can't see the Atlanta defense having the same success slowing down the Patriots offence. This is the toughest defense that Atlanta have faced in awhile. I'll take Patriots to cover the 3 point spread.

This has indeed been the most disappointing playoffs I can ever remember in 34 years of watching the NFL (aside from the thrilling GB-DAL game).
A Falcons win would remedy that, but as you say the Pats have been here before and know what it takes to win.

I expect the Pats will win (yawn) through experience alone but the Falcons probably have the best shot of beating them from the NFC this year so fingers crossed for an upset.

Default overtime rules in super bowl

As we saw at Wembley this year we had a tied game after overtime, a situation the Americans are not very fond of. Now what would have happened after 15 minutes of overtime on Sunday in the Super bowl if both sides were still level. Would they have shared the super bowl? or played on for ever until someone scored? With it being the first ever overtime Super bowl I did not hear anyone explain this.

Is there anything more funny in sports than "premature celebrations by the owners".Authur Blank and his wife celebrating in there box when they went 28-3 up then during the 4th quater they appear on the sideline while up 16 and smiling and getting plenty of network facetime then as the lead dis-appeared so did the owner.

Belichick and Edelman where on Fallon last night which i think get shown on E tonight at 10pm.
