Super Bowl LI pick
It's down to the Patriots and Falcons in Houston Sunday for the Super Bowl LI Championship. Here's our intrepid pick.
Super Bowl LI - Patriots vs. Falcons (Sunday 6:30pm)
This is the 9th Super Bowl appearance for the Patriots while Atlanta is playing in its second Super Bowl. But don't forget, there's been a lot of turnover for New England since its last Title two years ago. Two high powered offenses, #1 and #2 in the league with the Falcons leading the way, while the Patriots come in with the top ranked defense in points allowed. Can that defense slow down WR Julio Jones and QB Matt Ryan? Can the young Atlanta defense stop QB Tom Brady and his offense that's averaging 35 points in the playoffs? It will most likely come down to red zone defense, who can run the ball to control the clock and who can adjust better in-game. With a win, Brady would become the QB with the most victories in the Super Bowl (5).
