  1. 7-0 against playoff teams this season. Beat the #1, #2, and #3 ranked teams in DVOA in the postseason. Facing Philip Rivers, Patrick Mahomes and then Jared Goff, the Patriots defense allowed them to complete just 50 percent of their passes combined (60-of-120). Not much anyone can say about that.
  2. The Chiefs and Rams were the two highest scoring teams in the highest scoring season in NFL history. Time it took them each to score a point vs the Patriots in the postseason: Chiefs: 32:04 minutes Rams: 42:49 minutes
  3. Great teams don't do stupid #### when it matters most, like lineup offsides on a critical play. An all time bad call didn't make Drew Brees throw an interception in OT either. You're an idiot, PERIOD.
  4. Brees sucked the last quarter of the season. Chiefs got exposed by the Patriots 2 weeks ago. The better team won tonight. Eat it Doctor
  5. Yes because we know the Patriots get all the calls in their favor... of course a Squealers fan would say that too
  6. They've done this the past few SB appearances, it's become routine for them. Plus they had a walkthrough on Thursday
  7. Legitimately, I'm surprised that hardly anyone one has talked about Goff's splits this season. Goff in the regular season, when Kupp was in the lineup (10 games): 227/332 (68.37%), 313.4 Y/G, 2.2 TD/G, 0.6 Int/G, 113.0 PR, 9.95 AY/A. That's in the same range as Mahomes and Brees. Goff in the regular season, without Kupp in the lineup (6 games): 137/229 (59.83%), 259.0 Y/G, 1.7 TD/G, 1 Int/G, 83.9 PR, 6.48 AY/A. Goff in the playoffs (still no Kupp, 2 games): 40/68 (58.8%), 0.5 TD/G, 0.5 Int/G, 79.5 PR, 6.70 AY/A. That's in the same range as Bortles and Keenum. In the back half of the season, the Rams have been winning despite Goff, not because of him. Since the start of December, Goff has had two games over 100 PR, his games against San Francisco and against Arizona: two teams who allowed over 400 points on the season who basically had nothing to play for but the top seeds. If it was Brady playing like this, we'd have pundits falling out of trees to deliver their "is Brady finally finished" hot takes.
  8. Jared Goff when kept clean: • Comp%: 72.1% • Yards/attempt: 9.1 • TD-INT: 28-7 Jared Goff when under pressure: • Comp%: 43.4% • Yards/attempt: 6.0 • TD-INT: 5-6 I think the Patriots will be looking heavily at the Lions and Bears games against the Rams from earlier in the season. The Lions figured out how to stop the Rams’ offense, just weren’t good enough to beat them. Vic Fangio saw what the Lions were doing and basically copied it. Eagles also followed suit and had success.
  9. McVay is great, he'll be prepared.. but Goff isn't anywhere close to Mahomes. He's one of the worst QBs in the league under pressure, and once he can't hear McVay in his ear when he's got 10 seconds left on the play clock, he's going to face a tough challenge as Belichick and Flores will throw everything they can at him to try and confuse him.
  10. Tom Brady has thrown the ball 90 times in the postseason. Against Bosa, Ingram, Jones, Ford and Houston. He's not been sacked yet. The Patriots offensive line and legendary OL coach Dante Scarnecchia are killing it.
  11. Mediocre defense? Lol. They just held the 3rd highest scoring offense in history to 0 points in the first half yesterday. Just because they didn't look good in October and November means nothing. The Chiefs vaunted pass rush, who had the #1 pass rush in the league at home, only had 4 pressures all game and didn't get to Brady once. Gonna be a long game for Suh and Donald. Brady has had plenty of experience against Talib and Wade coached defenses. Patriots are that team that gets hot at the right time late in the season and roll it into a Super Bowl win. Patriots 34-20
  12. Just like Kelce ate them alive earlier in the season, right? Also.. basing your opinions off of what Cynthia Freylund think... Gronk has been a great blocker this season, and helped the run game in a big way despite his low production. and don't be surprised if he has a big game against the corpse of Eric Berry. When did AB and JuJu have big games against them this season? They lost obviously but that was more on the offense. Steelers only put up 17pts and JC Jackson locked down JuJu, he only had 40yds and AB only had 49yds.
  13. The Chiefs literally play in Denver once a year because they are in the same division, your argument is weak. The Patriots have won IN Denver the last 2 times they've played there. There are many teams besides the Patriots that have struggled with the altitude there, it's a legitimate home field advantage.
  14. Jam 8 in the box and try to stop the run with Brady at QB? Lol. He will dice up that weak Chiefs secondary over and over again if they attempt that. 1. They've literally played in 2 other AFC Championship on the road since 2006. 2015 against one of the best defenses of the last 10 years and they played terrible and only lost by 2pts, and it came down to the last play. Hell they shouldve won that game and Brady was on his ### all day. They were ravaged with injuries that 2013 season against Peyton's "historic" Broncos offense. No Mayo, Wilfork, Gronk, Vollmer, Spikes, Talib (for most of the AFC Championship). Austin Collie and Matthew Mulligan were starting on offense. Edelman was there, and Dola was too but it was his first season with the Patriots and he wasn't much of a factor then. 5 of their defensive starters were lost due to injury. Jamie Collins was strictly a special teamer all season until the playoffs. This season they are probably the healthiest team left. 2. Arrowhead will be nuts, but if the Patriots get off to a fast start early, it'll suck the energy right out of that place, especially with it being so damn cold. 3. KC has been better at home, but they played 6 cupcake teams, with the only good teams being the Ravens and Chargers. And both scored 20+ points. 4. KC has great weapons, no doubt. But the Patriots secondary is their greatest strength and the best left in the playoffs and they've only gotten better as the season has gone on. Hill is really the only one who's a major concern. They limited Kelce early in the season, Watkins will most likely be covered by Gilmore, and D.Williams is a career 3.4ypc undrafted RB who's played well in their scheme but certainly isn't an explosive playmaker like Hunt. 5. If it's below 10 degrees, it will definitely be a factor. I'm not sure why people think it won't be. 6. The Patriots o-line has been one of their best in recent memory, they've done an amazing job protecting Brady and after watching them make Bosa and Ingram completely invisible, I'll take my chances that the KC pass rush doesn't get to Brady often.
  15. If the game is played in single digits, it should play into the Patriots favor. The Chiefs thrive on big plays from dynamic playmakers like Mahomes, Hill and Kelce. But if the freezing temperatures dictate a ground-heavy game flow, the Patriots would seem to have the advantage. The passing game won’t be as explosive and routes aren’t as crisp and top speed (Hill) slower. Turns into an old school running game.
  16. Patriots will eat up the "underdog" and "they can't win on the road" narrative all the way to a dominant 38-20 win over the Chiefs. Andy Reid and Mahomes find a way to fumble this one early and the Patriots roll. The cold, playoff experience, coaching, all favor the Patriots. Bob Sutton is an atrocious defensive coordinator, they play zone more than 80% of the time, and unless him and Reid come up with an absolutely masterful plan, I won't bet against Brady and Belichick. Especially after seeing how well that offensive line played yesterday and made Bosa and Ingram invisible.
  17. Exactly what I came here to say. I mean, did anyone see the Patriots losing in 2007? I can see any of the remaining teams in the NFC or the AFC knocking off the Saints. You can be the best team all season long, but it means nothing in the playoffs. This has been proven many a time.
  18. He looked fine to me yesterday. And last week for that matter. He's been blocking more than anything, which has certainly helped their run game. Now he's got 2 weeks to rest up, so even more of an advantage. I agree about the Colts and Ravens, and think one of them will be playing the Patriots in Foxboro for the AFC Championship.
  19. I think they have a great chance to make it to yet another Super Bowl again. The reason? Their defense and run game. Not to mention the fact that they are the healthiest team left in the AFC.
  20. Colts over Texans, Ravens over Chargers Colts over Chiefs, Patriots over Ravens Patriots over Colts Seahawks over Cowboys, Bears over Eagles Saints over Seahawks, Bears over Rams Saints over Bears Patriots over Saints
  21. Eh. I can see the Chiefs being the one and done team in the AFC. Andy Reid has consistently choked in the playoffs for the last 18 years. That and their secondary is just terrible, and they're gonna have a hell of a time slowing down the Colts, Chargers, or Ravens for that matter. The Patriots are the healthiest team left in the AFC. They're 15-0 at home going back to October 1st of last season when they lost on a game winning FG. Brady/Belichick playoff experience coupled with the fact that their secondary has been playing great the last month, and they have a legit run game. If anything I feel like they are being counted out too soon. Not saying they make it to the Super Bowl, but they probably have the best chance out of all the remaining AFC teams.
  22. And the corpse of Eli Manning threw for over 400 yds and 3 TDs against the Eagles a few weeks ago..
  23. Lol. Doug definitely isn't a better play caller than anyone they had on those 2 teams. I'm not even sure how you come to that conclusion at this point in his career. I mean he did learn from Andy Reid..and we all know what he's famous for.
  24. Honestly it's going to come down to coaching, matchups and execution like...every other NFL game. I give Belichick the edge on coaching but Pederson does have a solid staff. Patriots win that one. Matchups are a wait and see. The Eagles DL will give the Patriots OL some fits but if the OL gives Brady literally any kind of time he's going to carve up the Eagles secondary. On the other side of the ball, I think the Eagles have a solid OL but you're talking about BB and Matt Patricia scheming against Foles' tendencies. Not good for the Eagles. Again, edge to the Patriots. Finally execution. If the Eagles can get a solid contribution from everyone playing at their peak and the Pats can stumble there's an outside chance but if there's a coach that can get his team to play sharp for 4 quarters, it's Belichick. He coaches his teams to expect the best out of the other team and if the other team does anything less, the Patriots will exploit it. Again, advantage Patriots. I'm not saying the Eagles can't win but they need to be tip top in all 3 areas. You can use whatever stats or trend lines make you happy but the game is going to come down to how it plays out on the field and Belichick is a maestro on making things happen.
  25. Obviously, but considering 90% of the Eagles fans are part of the lower class I don't think many will be able to afford the cost of a ticket and trip to Minnesota.
