  • Why Tom Brady Will Never Win Another Super Bowl

Still, if Brady says "everyone" thinks the Patriots, um, stink, then that's how it is, at least for teammates who were happy to parrot the company line Sunday.

If that doesn't get Patriots fans hype, I can't help them.

Yeah, sure. The Patriots went 11-5 and finished second in the AFC standings.

Despite their dominating victory over the Chargers, and a win earlier this season in Foxborough against the Chiefs, the Patriots are 3-point underdogs entering next Sunday's AFC championship game.


Brady and the Patriots have recorded five additional Super Bowl appearances, winning two more titles in 2015 and 2017.

The Saints averaged 31.5 points this season on their way to the NFC South title, ranking third in the National Football League behind the Chiefs (35.3 points per game) and Rams (32.9) and ahead of the Patriots (27.3).

But New Orleans' defense played a crucial role in its 20-14 win over Philadelphia in the divisional round on Sunday. "A lot of guys understand that we are doubted and counted out, and you definitely get a little sense of motivation to prove people wrong". On one hand, you have the offensive fireworks promised by the Chiefs, with Mahomes throwing to the likes of Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. Even at age 41, Brady's stats this season were comparable to numbers he put up in his prime; his yards per game, yards per pass attempt and completion percentage were all higher than his career average. "We'll see where we are now, see where they are".
