With the Super Bowl 51 on the horizon analysts feel the Patriots will win. It is easy to say that the Patriots will win the Super Bowl because of their previous history. After all, the Patriots now have 4 Super Bowl wins and Tom Brady is looking for his 5th. If Tom Brady and the Patriots are able to defeat the Atlanta Falcons they would  be setting a Franchise record. Bill Belichick and Brady have always been a big threat in the NFL and this may be why they are destined for the Hall of Fame.

It cannot go without being said that the Patriots have faced many cheating allegations. The top cheating scandals within the Brady/Belichick dynamic are "deflategate" and "spygate". Both of the scandals were highly regarded at the time as a means to cheat. Bot times the Patriots organization was punished. The more popular of the two scandals was deflategate(2015). It was said that Tom Brady and one of the organization's members aided in deflation of their own footballs. By deflating the footballs it made the footballs easier to catch therefore making it an unfair advantage.

How do you feel about the Patriots? Do you feel the Patriots deserve to make History in Super Bowl 51? Who do you feel will win Super Bowl 51? In due time we will find out. Make sure to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 5th at 5:30PM on FOX.

  1. This is very interesting. Now I don't watch football or anything, because it's not really of interest to me. But do you think Brady/Belichick is really a scandel? Do you think they should be allowed to be in the superbowl if their is a scandel? I think the patriots won last year, but dont quote me on that. Are the patriots just that good that they made it this year as well?

    1. Brady/Belichick is not the scandal. The scandals occurred in past seasons. At the beginning of this season, Tom Brady served a 4 game suspension that he was able to avoid last season. Deflategate took place in the playoffs, so it directly impacts their birth into the Superbowl. The Denver Broncos won the Superbowl last year with Peyton Manning, and the Patriots lost in the semifinals.

  2. Good point with the Scandals. Many would say that they are cheaters and got to this point by cheating. I would say thats not true because some players like the football pumped up more. They played excellent this year with the stellar performance of brady and their defense. They deserve to face off against the falcons in super bowl LI

  3. I think that the Patriots will probably pull out W but I also think that Atlanta won't make it easy on them either.

  4. I really like your post because it focuses on a really hard hitting topic. I believe that the patriots do have flat balls.

  5. I like how you laid out the scenario for non-football fans. However, I don't think that Deflategate had any impact on this season, other than the Tom Brady suspension. Seeing as how the Patriots went 3-1 without him, it didn't make a real difference. I wish you would have given your opinion on the topic instead of just reporting like in a news article. Also, you could change your background to something that represents the NFL. Good job.
