I've been thinking Patriots the last two weeks. It's very hard to go against Brady and Belichick. With two weeks to stop the Falcons, Belichick is one guy who can. Brady is unstoppable, as are his receivers and running backs. The Patriots have the leading scoring defense in the NFL.
With that said, I'm going with Julio and Matt to get it done on Sunday in Houston, and give Atlanta their first Super Bowl championship in 51 years of the franchise's existence. Matt and Julio go off. Brady, Chris Hogan, Julian Eddleman and the stud Patriot cast do too. But Atlanta has a stud cast of their own on offense. So I'll take the Falcons in an upset. It'll be an electric offensive game. Gaga at halftime. Should be interesting as well.
