Nearly six months ago, the Los Angeles Rams broke for training camp. Now, we sit just one game away from the end of the 2016 NFL season.
In two weeks, the New England Patriots will face off against the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI in Houston, Texas.
It’s a common sight for the Pats. It’s their seventh Super Bowl appearance under Head Coach Bill Belichick with QB Tom Brady. Having gone 14-2 and having rolled over both the Houston Texans and Pittsburgh Steelers in the postseason, New England comes in as a slight favorite.
The Falcons are in the Super Bowl after missing out on the playoffs the last three years riding the highest-scoring offense in the NFL this season and the second-highest in yards gained. In his last six games including the final four regular season contests, QB Matt Ryan is averaging 310 passing yards, 3 passing TDs and 0 interceptions. That is not horrible. Helping things is alien being WR Julio Jones who is good.
You’ve got two weeks to get your menu straightened out, stock the fridge and lay any side bets...
