Patriots, the team where everyone knows and does their job to perfection
The Patriots do not need an introduction: It is the best franchise in the history of American sports. It will be their ninth appearance in the last game of the season, which is more than any other team. It will be Tom Brady’s seventh trip to the Super Bowl, which is also more than any other player ever. It will be Belichick’s ninth Super Bowl appearance as he too is set to become the coach with the most appearances in the ultimate game of the year. And they are just two of the stars – the quarterback and the coach. Surrounding them is a rag-tag bunch, who were discarded from other teams for varying reasons, turning into well-oiled cogs in the wheel that is a Belichick-run football team.
The Patriots are the best franchise in the history of the sport but one thing is very clear; the only stars are Tom Brady and Bill Belichick
The Patriots have been missing their second best player in Rob Gronkowski for over two months, but it has hardly made an ounce of a difference during the Patriots’ run to the final. The mantra of “next man up” fits perfectly for Belichick and co. along with that of “do your job!”. The home crowd engage in singing The Outfield’s - Don’t want to lose your love tonight in an effort to spur their team on and it has worked. They are the second best offense in the league this year and also boast a stingy defense, allowing just 15.6 points per game, which is the lowest number in the NFL.
