For what it’s worth, I’m expecting a shootout.
The Patriots’ defense isn’t nearly as good as it’s looked over the past few weeks, and the Falcons’ defense is arguably a little overrated as well. Given that, and the fact that this game features two elite QBs, this game has “high-scoring matchup” written all over it.
Of course, we all expected that in the NFC championship, but I think both offenses are simply too good to let the other team blow them out of the water. This is a game where the first few possessions are important, but I’d be absolutely shocked if this game is decided by halftime. The Patriots are rightly favored, but there’s so much more to this game than just that.
Great read! Recommended.
